Cheap Delay for Sound Thickening

Hi I'm looking to add a second delay to my board. I plan to set it to a very short time, with low repeats and moderate level. It will be used to thicken my sound rather than echo effects.

 

I tried using a Behringer Reverb Machine for this. However, I found that the pedal added an excessive amount of noise to my signal as well as tone loss. I cannot have this and so I am returning it. I think a delay would be more suitable in either case.

 

I want to keep things cheap (under $50), however the pedal needs to be quiet and not color my signal too much. I've found a few that I'm interested in:

The first two are both made from JOYO (same model different paintjob?), which I've never heard of till now. However, a quick internet search showed quite a few happy buyers on forums. Couldn't find too much on Caline. And some people have said the Rogue is a little noisy. What do you guys think? Recommendations are welcome. Thanks :)

I recently got a Rogue Analog Delay for exactly that. It's true bypass, feels solid and was only 25 bucks used. I have no complaints and I definitely recommend it.

 

 

I agree and that's what I came to say. Although remember even though it says analog, it isn't if that matters to you. It is no noisier than any other delay I have and I have 10 or so different ones. I always found the EHX delays to be noisy myself.

I've recently been using a cheap delay I bought from a then-local music shop a few years ago. I didn't do much with it at the time as I wasn't into short delays then; it only goes up to 200ms. It's a Wholenote DL-8, and it sounds really good. I can't find any info on it to confirm whether or not it is actually analog (assuming not), or what the circuit is based on, but I've been enjoying it. Possibly the best
