    Setting up a crazy stereo pedalboard rig. Looking for a decent STEREO delay.
    -MUST BE COMPACT (no strymons etc)

    DD7.

    :p

    But seriously I love the DD7. Was what I was considering before I was offered a Supa Puss.

    Only other "compact" stereo delay I can think of is the FLashback.

    I agree.. Either one of the Boss delays or the TC Flashback are probably the best 'bang for your buck' pedals out there.

    Walrus Audio D1, Boss DD6/7/8/200, TC Flashback, maybe the Horizon Flux Echo if it ever hits the market

    I still want to try an obscura.
    Insane how much tweakability it seems to have.

    +1 for the Boss DD's. :D

    Since Boss is priced in the middleground and popular, they are common on the used market as well.

    Damn, they finally got to 8.

    I remember in high school not wanting to spend $200+ on a brand new DD6 (used wasn't an option). I often wonder how my life would have changed had I owned a delay pedal prior to college :lol:.

    Lol. I have never been able to get into delay, and I think that is one reason why. I just never learned to play with one when I started out years ago. I will turn one on once in awhile if I am trying to solo or something, but I generally prefer my tone to be clear, and cutting.

    I was always much more into Chorus. Either extreme like Nirvana, or sort of that spacial widening thing like early STP or something.

    I have just recently in the last year or two started playing with Reverb. I am finding it nice to dial in tones at much lower volume, but still adding some space to the sound. Its like a whole new world, lol. Even though I still cant get into FRFR, one trick I have learned from my efforts is using Reverb to add space. I have been buying up some pedals and old rack units as always on devices.

    Oh, for the thread, I am a fan of the old Digitech Hardwire pedals. The DL-8 is a great stereo delay pedal. I have collected many of the old Hardwire pedals. All of them sound great.

    Im in love with reverbs, dont usually use em because i mainly play slightly more technical tight heavy rhythm guitar but any other time i just love it. And delays for solos.
    Both for clean stuff. Like a bit of gentle swaying chorus for clean and solos.
    Just got my tc mimiq, now see what all the fuss of stereo is.
    Wish earthquaker made a stereo dispatch master as its the smoothest most pleasing sounding delay ive ever heard

    I have never been able to get into FRFR, and prefer an amp and cab, but if there will be one thing make me switch one day, it will be having stereo. Stereo sounds amazing at home at low volume, and it is a huge pain to do stereo with traditional amps.

    Atm im using the tc mimiq into 2 preamp pedals (tm pro, and snk vhd) into my rocktron velocity300.
    Sounds awesome. At least at home volumes

    For most features in a small housing, the Walrus Audio D1 is about as much as it gets (they even fit midi in there). But for value, you really cant go wrong with the Boss DDs or the TC Flashback.

    Maybe You should try Zoom MS series? It is basically the simple multifx in the most compact and convienient package. It is much worse than Strymons, but it is way less expensive and in most cases it is good enough for gigs.
