I'm thinking of expanding my (extremely modest) assortment of pedals and am leaning toward chorus and/or delay as the next addition to my rig (I'm open to both 2-in-1 and separate pedals). I'm looking for something that complements a warm, dark tone (think David Gilmore of Pink Floyd or Radiohead's cleans) and with enough parameter controls that it won't sound prepacked. I generally prefer analogue effects to digital ones. Any suggestions?

Budget? If you like 2-in-1, look at the Visual Sound H20. I'm pretty sure it's analog (I could be mistaken though).

Budget is pretty open. I'm not looking to go buy now with cash on hand, I'm looking to know what to save up for.

For a delay you're going to want to go analog. For Gilmour-type delays, the Deluxe Memory Man by Electro-Harmonix is the way to go. As far as chorus, the Electro-Harmonix Small Clone is widely recommended, but I know very little about chorus as I don't use it much.

I know you said you prefer analog over digital, but I hear BOSS DD-20 or BOSS DD-3 are great.

I second the Visual Sound H2O, I think its a great pedal, but I personally didn't like it a lot.

The chorus is analog while the delay is digital.

Board:

Sorry to hijack a thread, but what is the benefit of an analog delay over digital? Thanks.

Delay:

TC Electronics - Nova Delay/Nova Repeater
EHX - Deluxe Memory Man

Chorus:

I wouldn't recommend the Small Clone, im not much of a fan.

Carl Martin pedals are quite good, as Jaybals said, look into the Classic Chorus.
TC Electronics - Stereo Chorus Flanger. (Great Pedal)
Greco 59-50 Mint Collection - 1982 - Iron Gear Hot Slag/Rolling Mill
Schecter Tempest Classic Goldtop
Ceriatone 18 Watt TMB/EF86 2x12 - Lorantz Greenback's

For chorus pedal you might take a look at the EHX Electric Mistress Chorus / flanger a very good pedal for playin Floyd. For a delay I love the versatility of the Boss DD-7....Good Luck!!

There's no real benefit, it all comes down to personal preference.

Analogue delays have darker repeats and generally shorter delay times. Digital delays repeats are as clear as the original, have longer delay times and can have other features such as tap tempo.

Would go for the EHX deluxe memory man. The EHX stereo (digital) memory man is also good but I prefer the former. Has chorus built in too
#19
Thanks folks. Looks like the EHX Deluxe Memory Man is a clear favorite around here, so I suppose I'll be checking that out first.
