Re: ANY good delay pedals?
For digital delays, it would be hard to beat the Boss DD-3. No, it doesn't sound like tape echo, but the delays manage to be both clean and warm. Also, you can separate the dry and delay outputs (and if you do this, you have the option of EQing the delayed signal for less high-end without affecting the dry signal). Like other Boss pedals, the bypass is not hardwired, but bypass mode sounds very close to the original guitar signal.  
The Boss DD-5 has more features and is more expensive, but to my ears, sounds a bit sterile compared to the DD-3.  
That's my opinion, anyway.
