is it as ridiculously expensive as that delay?

(no hate, looks nice and has some useful features).

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess it's one with a super-special custom, hand-wound inductor and that you might just be able to find it "on sale" if you know where to look...

Analog delays are pricier.

Like the Vertex Axis?

the basic ones aren't particularly expensive.

I like that that delay has an input for effects to be added to the repeats. I'm not sure what I'd use it for, but it's a cool feature.

The MXR Carbon Copy is pretty inexpensive ($140). But most will be much more. The EHX Deluxe Memory Man is probably the absolute standard of the genre and it's over $300.

Didn't realise they'd become so expensive over the years.


BTW, I'm not sure if they're still making them but the best wah is the Ibanez WD-7. Cheap, rugged, excellent features. A side switch to stomp on rather than having to smash the pedal itself. Or can go in auto-on mode. Pretty much all parameters adjustable, the knobs push in so you don't knock them out of place with your foot, and it's optical so you don't have to worry about pots wearing out.

It's not the nicest looking beast but it's the most effective and nicest sounding I've played.

Yeah, NOS Bucket Brigade chips have gotten extremely expensive--the MN3005s especially.

Why don't people just make their own?

- probably because most digital delays come with modulation settings that sound like analogue anyway.

Building your own analog delay pedal doesn't bypass the hurdle of expensive chips. They don't make them anymore, so prices are only going up.

Seems like even the best digital delays can't quite replicate the lushness of true analog. That said, there are a thousand other reasons to prefer digital. Digital gives you crisper, more perfect repeats, longer delay times, and infinitely more control.

Only $1,300:



The foot switch is only another couple hundred.

Can't say I understand where you draw your lines.

An EP3 can be had for much less than you spent on your Moog, in any case.

Me personally, I quite like the sound of a good rack digital delay. I was incredibly, incredibly angry at myself when I missed an MXR Delay System II on eBay the other day for $200.

Unless you need a specific slapback sound like Brian Setzer Roland Space Echo sound which I was lucky enough to use, a Boss DD-3 gets most guitar delay sounds just fine.
