    Is there any pedal that has those 3 effects in one box? I'm not talking about multieffects. Or it is better to buy all 3 separate?

    I think it really comes down to mastering how your delay pedal works more than it does which one you buy. The guitariest in my band does amazong things with his Boss DD-3. He gets great delay, good echo, but i ma most amazed at his ability to make it function like a reverb pedal. He gets it so it has better trail than my stand alone reverb pedal.

    The Boss RV3 has delay and reverb.
    The Ibanez DE7 has delay and echo.

    I do not know of a unit that has all three.

    (FWIW, delay and echo are essentially synonyms for one another so I'd go for the Boss, and if you really want "Echo", get someone to mod it for a high cut switch.)

    What is also important for me - tap tempo. And it would be better to have separate switch for tap, not on/of switch.

    The old Boss DD-5s had an external tap tempo switch. Other than that, they are pretty much the exact same as the DD-6... Some claim the DD-5 sounds better, but I've never tried one out myself, so I couldn't say for sure.

    The new marshall delay has tap tempo and about 6 different types of delay
