tech question about delays

I'm still looking for a delay pedal.

 

Should I consider the amount of hertz and bitrate that a digital delay pedal has? It would make sense the bigger the number the better sounding the pedal will be. Using what I would think is common sense anyway. Or am I way off?

well from what I can see what delays such as the DL4 and DD-20 are capable of, I don't need anything that extreme. Looks like you can do everything you would ever think of with delays such as those. I have no need to make wild outerspacey crazy sounds. I just want a delay for the most basic of uses.

I mean granted it is fun to goof around with an effect pedal but I would think even the most basic delay pedal is capable of some goofing around, which is enough for me.

I have a DD-3 which is does not work. I have read a few other posts by people on here claiming the same thing about their dd-3s. Looks like there is a reliability issue with those.

So if bitrate and hertz are not much of a factor, then it looks like an analog delay is the way to go. Price isn't an issue. On my blue collar welder income, I have no other mouths to feed but my own. I just don't wanna pay $300 for something that doesnt live up to even my basic standards. I've tried a couple digital dealys at my local music supply shop such as the DL4. Just way too much stuff on that pedal that I would never use.

I like playing classic rock to speed metal. Maybe analog would be more the way to go. If bitrate doesn't matter much then an analog delay sounds like the reasonable choice.
