Delay…lay…ay…y

Which do you prefer when it comes to your delay sound? Do you like analog delays, digital delays, both, or does it even matter? Tap tempo is essential, right? Well it definitely helps.

I have owned the MXR Carbon Copy, the TC Electronic Flashback, and the Way Huge Aqua Puss. Technically, I had the Carbon Copy twice because I felt like I didn’t give it enough of a chance the first time. I’m now in the market for a new delay and have begun my usual routine when researching gear. This usually consists of obsessively watching product videos and reading reviews. I’m currently deciding between the Korg SDD-3000, the Way Huge Supa-Puss, and the Catalinbread Echorec. I’m leaning toward the Korg, but leaning away from the price. I like that the Edge’s tech, Dallas Schoo was involved in the design of this pedal because I’m a fan of the way that the Edge incorporates delay into his sound. The Korg has every feature you could want, including two banks of programable channels.

The one feature of the Carbon Copy and Aqua Puss had that I was not a fan of was the modulation and oscillation. I don’t like it at all. It’s a cool effect for a few moments, but that’s it.

The Supa-Puss and Echorec are both pedal board friendly whereas the Korg would need a board of it’s own. There are a lot of features to consider when making this purchase and size is one of them.
