First, my mind is yet again blown by the brilliance of Brian May. I have just found the secret to his delay-harmonizing technique ( http://www.brianmaycentral.net/gmmar97.html ), and now seek to replicate. That was the statement. The question now is this. Is there a single pedal that I could use to run two delays that would be cheaper than buying two seperate delays. I've been looking at a Carbon Copy for quite some time, but now I believe branching out may be necessary. I'd like to stay at/under $200 USD (my aproximated cost of 2 carbon copies).

Thanks,

The Carbon Copy is $150 new, and I don't think it sounds particularly good...

You'll find yourself needing one long and one short delay. For the long delay, it has to be digital. I'd go for a DigiTech Hardwire DL-8, and for the short, the EHX Memory Toy or Memory Boy would be good.

Expect to spend about $300 altogether, I'd say.

Try going for one analog delay and one digital delay. That way, it's two different tonal characteristics as well. I would recommend the Boss DD-3/ DD-6 for digital and Carbon Copy (which, admittedly, doesn't sound amazing but does sound nice) or Ibanez AD-9 or something similar.

If you're interested, I'll sell you both my Carbon Copy and DD-6 for $200

The only pedal I know of that can run two delays at once is the Line 6 M13. But that's $500 and I'm sure there's a cheaper pedal that can do it... I just don't know of it. The DL4 might be able but I'm not sure.. the M13 does it by putting two of the settings as DL4 pedals.
I have a huge fear if rays.

the tc electronic nova delay i believe runs 2 at once, i know the eventide delay does for sure.

both of those are hefty in terms of price though.

edit: damn, i actually do something like this with a stereo delay, the dd-6/dd-7(got both). when hooked in stereo it goes center, right, then left. so with the 'repeat' turned all the way down you get a triplet, if you turn 'repeat' up you get more layers, gets very thick harmonies.
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.
