So I have a Marshall Dsl 401 and I am using an Ibanez Ts9dx with it. I love my tone very much but I cant seem to find a good delay pedal to compliment it. I've tryed the Behringer DD100 (because its cheap) and the Ibanez Ds-7 and both of them seem to take away from my sound. Apart from sounding like shit they take away my sustain and make my harmonics sound like ass.

So basicaly what I need is a good delay pedal that wont take anything away from my sound and will just do its job and just give me a good sounding natural delay.

I've heard good things about the Boss DD-3 so can anyone tell my me about it or give me any other recommendations?

Thanks.

are you running it into the front of the amp or into the amp's fx loop?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I use both the Boss DD-3 and the DD-20. They are both GREAT. If you just need a simple delay, go with the DD-3. If you would like something that had a few more options, I would go with the DD-20. It's got a bunch of great Delays.

you need something with True Bypass, i think Electro-Harmonix pedals are wired that way.

^ the problem could be just that it'll sound better in the fx loop. Since the delay repeats notes and makes them quieter, that can affect the input signal going into your preamp tubes. the fx loop goes between the preamp and power amp, so avoids these problems.

You might be fine if you try it in the loop, and it'd save you having to buy a new pedal.

DD-3 is has a decent reputation as a good general delay pedal. If you want something really nice, the DD-6 is supposed to be completely mint. Best thing to do is go to a guitar shop and try 'em out.

i don't see why you guys are all recommending new pedals when it could just be that not running it in the loop is what's the problem. Granted, if running it in the loop doesn't sort things, then he needs to look at new pedals. Not until he's tried it, though.

I'm just recommending good pedals in case the FX Loop isn't the solution. You already suggested it, and I know nothing about it, so I'm just saying what I know as an alternative.

I was just saying in case you guys hadn't read what I'd written. If the loop thing doesn't work, then yeah, he wants to look at new pedals. I was just concerned, the way he was typing it looked like he was going straight for new pedals.
