Im trying to decide on a Delay pedal, but i dont know which to get. i dont want to lose tone by going digital but i really like the reverse delay effect and how much longer you can set the delay to be but i dont want anything sucking my tone. any suggestions?

Id get a Memory man delay. but for reverse Delay, id say a Danelectro pedal is the only way to get that effect. Maybe a Line 6 delay might get that effect.

if danelectro was the only way to get that effect, they wouldnt cost twenty dollars. the dd6 has it, so does the digitech (dont get that)

a memory man would be the best quality wise, but its pricy. boss is the way to go man

dd6 has tap tempo, longer delay, reverse, and warp. the dd3 is just a basic delay, but its really good quality in my opinion

A good delay pedal won't (or shouldn't) suck any tone, no matter if it's digital or analog.There is a big tone difference between analog and digital delays, so there's no best choice between the two.

If you want the reverse delay and hold features, you have to get a digital delay. If you like the warm tone of the analog delay and don't need a lot of repeat time, go with analog. If you've got a lot of cash to spend, I recommend getting a modded digital delay. Keeley and Analogman modify a few digital delay pedals (Boss DD-3/DD-6) giving them a high-cut mod to make them sound more like an analog delay, but still keep the reverse and hold settings that you can only find on a digital delay.

There's tons of pedals to choose from. I would suggest a DD-3 to start with, maybe get a used DD-6 if you're on a budget but still want the reverse features.

The Marshall Echohead seems pretty cool, has reverse delay and models analog delays. It's around the same price as a DD-3 as well.


Plus it doesn't suck tone like every single Boss Pedal.

I'd go with the Echohead it is an amazing little pedal, only problem is you have to buy a tap tempo switch separately or you could make your own.
