I'm in the market for a delay pedal. I play mostly reggae. Right now I'm playing a les Paul studio out of a peavey classic 30. I dont have a specific budget but I'd like to stay around 100. What are the advantages/disadvantages of digital vs. analog delay pedals?

digital is a bit more cleaner, and the decay stays constant whereas there will be a slight trail off and warmth to analog. There's great uses for both kinds, for reggae you might want to try a digital first, but if you have the option to try both then do so. you can get a boss delay used for probably around your budget, for an analog one that can be found in stores a lot check out an mxr carbon copy

Fender MexiStrat
Epiphone Sheritan
Ibanez Artcore
Fender Twin Reverb silverface

If you stretch your budget $50 you open yourself to a bunch more options. Maybe you can find them used for under 100. TC Flashback and Malekko Ekko (I have this one) come to mind.

As stated above there is also a Boss DD, and MXR has the carbon copy.


I can't comment on the analog vs digital as I haven't played enough of them to really know the difference.

For your budget, a used TC Electronic Flashback or a Boss DD-5/DD-7.

for reggae a nice warm analog or close simulation would be great. Memory Man, or an old Boss DM2.

As for Digital, the DD3 and DD7 are pretty great.

I'd avoid the MXR carbon copy for reggae, it's quite dark & would get a bit muffled when playing reggae.

You'd be best off with a Boss DD, they're all very good & produce a nice bright delayed sound.

I really dig the memory man, or the more recent memory boy.

I have almost the same setup as you, expand the budget slightly and get the TC Flashback. Its what I have and I love every aspect of it.
