  • So I have an RE-20 headed my way...

    I've been around the block and back with delays. It seems to be the one thing I've never really been able to nail down.



    DMM: too noisy, overloads too quickly, and doesn't have tap.

    Memory Lane: same gripes as the DMM.

    Timeline: too clean, and doesn't degrade the right way.

    M9: no global tap, so delay times change when you change presets.

    Supa Puss: disappointment of the century.



    And those are just some of the highlights. There have to be at least 15-20 more.



    The other day I remembered the time I spent demoing an RE-20 a few years back, and that I fell in love, but ultimately passed because of the lack of modulation. But, it dawned on me: I can add my own vibrato before or after, to taste... so, we'll see how that goes.



    I know EchoDee digs the RE-20. Any other miscreants here not ashamed to say they actually like something with the name Boss on it?

        Good pedal but it affected too much the tone for it to be a mainstay on my board. I hope it works great for you. It was an awesome pedal though. Really close to the sound of an actual re-201!

          Yeah, I tried to get into the El Cap and Brigadier models in the Timeline, but the repeats didn't have the right kind of grit or eq...

          See, I don't mind! I know that will bug some people, but I'm all for colour if the end result sound good. It might have been nice if Boss included a "clean pass through" option. C'est la vie.

              I'm very happy with mine.



              It shares space with a Carbon Copy on my board.



              I haven't pined for my old Roland RE-501 since I bought it. GAS fixer.

                  Well, it def affects your dry tone, and I think that bothers some people (purists?), but I would never call it "tone suck." The preamps from some tape delays have been turned into pedals in their own right (like the various EP-3 clones).

                        I like the RE-20, but I like the El Cap so much more. I feel you on the squeaky cleanness of the Timeline, but to my ears the El Cap gets grittier and degrades in a much cooler way.

                          Also, the analog mode on the DD-7 is my favorite boss delay.

                            I don't doubt that it does! The problem is I have something uber specific I'm chasing. What gets closest is actually the DM2 model on the M9. The kind of distortion, plus the particular way it bandpasses the repeats, but also (being digital) manages to still remain articulate is something I really haven't found elsewhere, except in the RE-20, and possibly even more so. We'll see!



                            I'm not going to lie though: the El Cap has always been tempting. Maybe at some point I'll add one. You can never have too many delays!
