Discuss, i'm currently GASing for a delay pedal, preferably at a modest price to suite my modest budget, do you guys use delay? which ones do you use? what are your experiences of the many delay's on the market?
I use a Boss DD-3 delay, and have no problems with it whatsoever. It's a very nice delay. Simple to set up, and sounds like it's supposed to. It sounds good in front of your amp, or in the effects loop. It's the only delay pedal I've ever used, so I don't have anything to compare it to. If I were in the market for another delay, I'd try to find one that had a tap tempo function, so you can set the speed of the delay while you're playing, with the tap of your foot. Failing finding one like that in my price range, I'd probably get another DD-3.

I have a DD-5, which I presume is the DD-6 predecessor. I've had it well over 10 years. It has tap tempo, but I especially liked the hold function on it...which loops 2 seconds infinitely, which is just barely long enough to put in a short riff or 2 chords or so, and then practice lead with it. I guess nowadays it's much easier to record to pc for a true backing track, but it wasn't when I bought it. Anywhoo...yeah, for a dedicated pedal, can't go wrong with Boss. Great sound and built like a tank.
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
I use the Boss DD-3 also....Great pedal, only thing I wish it had, like everyone else, is the tap tempo function. Been thinking of getting a DD-6 for this, but that'll be after a few other purchases...

Not to try and steal the spotlight, but I too share the same need for a new delay pedal. I've got a Boss ME-50 that has two seconds of holding time, though it just doesn't do it for me. How much more holding time is available in other pedals?
