Been playing guitar for about 35 years now. I discovered the Danelectro Dan Echo pedal a couple decades ago and nothing else compared. The only problem is that they make them really cheap and pretty much anyone who has ever gigged with one will tell you a story of how the inputs go out. Such a shame because it is beautiful sounding - and newer Dan Electro pedals just don't sound nearly so perfect.
So.. I spent the last few years looking for something better. I played through several other delay pedals and most recently a MXR Carbon Copy. I'll never understand the Carbon Copy love as it just did not give the warm, analog sound that a pedal should (it was great on cleans but forget it on rock solos). I found this and on my first try with it, I hooked it into my chain and was only mildly impressed. Then... I put it in the FX Loop. Wowza! Exactly what I had been searching for.. warm slap-back that never gets in the way of your sound. It is digital but it sure sounds analog. The tap tempo works flawlessly and I pretty much hit the tempo for the perfect delay before every song when out playing a gig. I just couldn't ask for more in a pedal.
Oh wait.. yes I could. I almost gave it 4 stars just because that danged red light never goes off. That's my only gripe. I don't like lights on when I'm not using a pedal. When I hit 'Bypass', everything should be off. I've learned to live with it though. :)
