So I already have a good digital delay pedal (2 for that matter haha), but recently I've begun to appreciate analog delay. Now the analog setting on the DD-7 is nice, and serves it's purpose well, but it's dark as hell. I would rather have the option for a nice (normal) analog delay, and the dark one, and a digital one (hooray for 3 delay pedals).
So I'm looking at spending no more than $100 (CDN) on this pedal. I have no problem with going used.
Some options I was looking at were the EHX Memory Toy, EHX Memory Boy, EHX #1 Echo (not sure if this is too good?) and really other than those... I don't know of too many cheap analog delays.
I want a warm analog delay, and longer delay times (600-800ms is good).
Thanks in advance.

I'm honestly not sure about the exchange rates, but I love my MXR Carbon Copy.

The EHX #1 Echo is digital and extremely cold and sterile.

I'd go for the Memory Boy myself.

I know the #1 Echo is digital, but it is analog voiced... but is it any good?
And tbh, I don't really need anything fancy, I just need an analog delay, so would a Memory Toy still be a good bet?
A carbon copy is also definately out of my price range, I've seen them go for about $140 used (CDN) so can't do that.
Isn't there some cheap Ibanez analog delay, is that any good?
And should I just try and find some cheap random delays, and check them out?

Just get a Memory Toy...

The Ibanez DE7 is a great pedal for the price, I think its digital but its mean to sound analog. Theres also a Danelectro delay thats supposed to be pretty nice for the price. Look at your local craigslist to see whats there, otherwise the EHX Memory Boy/Toy is a pretty safe fallback option.

not particularly fond of mb's, but cc's are extremely dark and muddy... pretty much exactly the opposite of what you (the general consumer) want from an analog delay.

i acknowedge though that cc's are a very love/hate pedal. if it's your thing, great, but it's not the same kinda' classic analog delay that you'd get out of a DMM or a AD9-type.

oh, and dgital delays that are made to sound analog are not at all the same thing. you're better off just using the boss you already own if that's what you want.

You don't really have many options besides the Memory Boy or Memory Toy. If you want more modulation options, and more control in general, go for the Memory Boy. The Memory Toy is still really nice though, especially for the price.

I hear people say CC's are dark and muddy all the time, but I hear it as warm and organic...maybe I have it dialed it in juuuuuuust right or something.

I like mine, it is darker than most but I'd consider it warm myself. I wouldn't say it's worse than a memory boy, I prefer the sound of my CC. Anyway it's a moot point as it's too much for the TS.

The memory boy or toy should be in your budget TS.

like i said, it's love/hate all around... or more modestly like/dislike.

i believe a bigpart of that is what the rest of peoples' rigs look like. it's not going to sound the same through a twin as it would through a 5150... looped or front loaded... etc.

they're not BAD, it's just that people either like them or they don't. i don't particularly, you guys do, great. i still think they're over priced tho
