I've got the cash. It's down to the BOSS DD-20 Giga Delay, and the TC Electronic ND-1 Nova Delay. Both have digital screens which is exactly what I need to dial in ms. I like how you can store settings too. What are the pros and cons of the two? Which is the better buy? The DD-20 is listed at $229.99, while the ND1 is at $249.99.

I'd go with the TC, but don't forget the DL4. And if available, ALWAYS try before you buy.

I want to be able to dial in the exact ms. I think I'm going with the ND1...

nova delay, i guess... i'd take a dl4 over these 2 anytime though

What's so great about the DL4? It has no way to enter exact ms. Just knobs. No screen.

What about the Seymour Duncan Deja Vu?
EDIT: Go for the TC. VERY nice pedal.

In the end it all comes down to your personal needs. Some people don't need ms, some people need.

IMO the Dl4 is not bad, but the Nova is far far better. But thats probably because I'm a T.C. fanboy.

Out of those two, the Nova without doubt.

i don't like the tone of the nova, that's why it's only my #2
i don't need the ms, personally, i'd take a tap tempo if anything, but it's not even that essential for what i do with it

i love the dl4 because of the tones and features it has, that's pretty much it
