I want to get a delay pedal soon, and I have no idea which one to buy. My price limit is $200 and I would prefer something more around $150. I will use it with both clean and distortion. I dont know if I would want an analog or digital one. Ive seen the carbon copy, nova repeater, satrianis time machine, and boss dd-7. I havent tried any of these out though. Please give advice and if there is one you would recommend that I havent mentioned, please tell.

The Carbon Copy should work fine for you. I have a DMM, but the next delay on my list is the Carbon Copy.

Gibson SG Classic, Fender CP Jaguar Special HH, '65 RI Mustang
'65 Ampeg Gemini I G-12 Combo, Orange Tiny Terror

What music do you play?
Do you want a warmer sounding delay (analog) or a delay with features/presets (digital)?

Edit- owning a Carbon Copy myself, I can tell you that it sounds fine with distortion, and adds depth to solos quite nicely.

Which amp do you have, and does it have an FX loop?

-Gibson LP VM
-Silvertone Kentucky Blue
-MXR CC Delay
-Ibanez TS-9
-Egnater Rebel 20
-Avatar 1x12

I go from blues to harder rock. Definitely no metal, but maaaybe some van halen. My amp doesnt have an effects loop. Is that a problem?

Check it out.

If your am. Doesn't have an FX loops then a delay will sound fine unless you're using heavy distortion. That might make it a bit muddy.

Do you use a pedal for your distortion? If so, having no loop will be an issue. That way you'll be distorting your delays rather than delaying your distortion. Sounds very weird.

The Tech 21 Boost DLA has tap tempo and sounds far better than the DD-7, not to mention it doesn't need the extra footswitch for tap tempo. If you don't need tap tempo, look at the Malekko 616 for sure.

I use the DD-7 and personally think it's a fine delay, you don't need a footswitch for the tap tempo, you press and hold on the pedal for a few seconds until the light starts flashing and boom you're in tap tempo mode! Though with the DD-7 to be honest I think you really need an amp with an FX loop, i've ran it through the front before on a couple of amps and it didn't sound too good.

Analog: EHX Memory Boy or Malekko 616

Digital: Boss DD-7 (has looper) or Tech 21 RPT-1 (more delay options)

the ibanez de-7 is a pretty awesome starter delay
if you want something completely analog look at a EHX memory Boy, or Danelectro Reel Echo for that tape echo sound.
