    What is a good delay pedal to use for Tool. I dont need a really expensive one, just one that gets the job done.

    You want the boss DD3.

    I belive chancellor uses a DD-5, But the DD-3 is alot cheaper, and gets that crazy "space echo" delay sound he uses. I would recommend it as a delay pedal period.

    If you can track down an old Boss PS-5, those are great. It mixes delay with pitch shifting, and I consider it one of Boss' coolest pedals ever made. Might be cheap used, too.
     
  5. yea Figjam, when you get it, tell us what you think........I've been wanting to put one in my effects arsenal, but I'm still not too sure if it is worth it.

    I tried out my friends DD3. I like it a lot, especially for some select Tool pieces. I think its worth it. Im going to buy one as soon as i get money, or ill just wait till christmas and maybe my brother will buy me it or something.
