    so ive been looking for my 'ideal' delay for a while. most delay pedals seem like they would get the job done for me but i dont really want a DPDT switch. i want it something like a wah, where it would only engage when the switch is depressed. is there any pedal i dont know of that does this or somewhere i could get one made?
    much thanks in advance

    There are plenty of delays that can take an expression pedal input.

    Behringer makes a vibrato pedal, and it has a mode where the effect is only active when your foot is on the pedal. So such a thing is certainly possible.

    Another solution would be to have someone make you a momentary bypass pedal. The delay would be "on" all the time, and you'd have a bypass switch that put the delay in the circuit but only when you had your foot on the pedal. Yes, there ARE momentary DPDT footswitches, SmallBear has them.

    That's a very strange need for a delay pedal. I would say most important feature for a bass player would be tap tempo. Plenty to chose from there. My vote goes for Echo Park.

    I have had a delay in a wah pedal enclosure before. I was cool, but really only good for crazy noise. The pedal wouldn't stay in a fixed position. I think if it would have been able to stay in a fixed position, it would have been way more usable.
  7. Ryan at Fuzzrocious once built a one-off that sounded sick, and had a side switch for modulation, if I recall... you might want to ask him if he'd build another..
