  4. The BOSS delay is one of the best I've heard surprisingly, the reverse feature is very cool and it works great on bass, I used an old tape delay before I liked it (very ratty, but in a good way) but those are very costly and unreliable.
     
  5. My dad has a Boss Digital Delay. He won't let me touch it because its "designed for guitar only"
    lol phhftt i reckon he just doesn't want me to use it.

    :D:p

    I use a Danelectro Dan-Echo. It works great on bass, even though it was designed for guitar. It has a knob that takes out high end on each repeat to emulate a tape delay. It's pretty hard to hear that on bass, but on guitar it makes a large difference.

    So to answer your question any delay pedal will work.
