Surely not? What's the con here? I'm really interested in buying a delay pedal, and I don't really want to spoil my tone with a digital delay. However, my wallet won't allow for a DMM so I've been looking round.

£30 for an analog delay? Can anyone tell me why it's so cheap?

thanks in advance

I'm not convinced either. I once tried a £30 delay pedal and it was extremely noisy and hissed and awful lot and just generally had a bad delay sound. It's either broken or just really bad quality. Looking at the reviews on Harmony Central, it seems to be exactly that; cheap and bad sounding.

Cheers people, I thought it was too good to be true

Ah well.... I don't NEED a delay pedal just yet *looks for pennies under seat*

that isnt unusual. there are plenty of analogue delays for that sort of price, and its worth going for. i'm going to let you in on a secret here... pretty much all analogue delays are pretty similar. srsly. if its a stombox, and its an analogue delay, it isnt much different to any other stombox analogue delay.

i'm after one too, but i'm looking pay around the 20 pound mark... i'm more of a digital delay guy, but an analogue would be a nice addition to the arsenal...

I imported some sample effects from that company Daphon, just to test them to see if they would be worth stocking in my shop. I was so disapointed, it hissed like crazy and was totally useless because of the background noise, the delay built into my amp (marshall avt100) was miles better than this stand alone pedal. so i still have them lying around and i have no intension of selling them they where that bad, the distorsion from the same company was not bad, usable but still pretty mince. i would stay clear

I highly doubt a digital delay will "spoil" your tone. It's more of a copy of your guitar's/effects' tone, where analog delays add to the sound, especially with decay and what not.
