    Hello, I'm looking for rec's and info on rackmount delay for bass. I've only looked at the Behringer (model forgot) and the Alesis midiverb4 so I really have no idea whats out there. I currently use an EHX Deluxe Memory Man and while it has a cool organic sound it distorts far to much with bass. I figure rackmount because I really don't want anymore stomps, just more clear foot room. I've only considered the boss dd-20 in the stomp category. I'm really just looking for a quality delay that sounds clear, crisp and clean. I'm using a few basses all through an Eden WT330> NSP 2x12. Budget is maxed at $400, $200 would be nice.
  2. well, i have a rocktron intellefex online and that has a good delay on it...its not that expensive, and the quality is pretty good to my ears

    At most price points, for a rackmount delay you really can't get any better than Lexicon.

    +1 on the Lexicon, in terms of "best clean-sounding rack delay for $200". They have a low-cost model with no menus (just a few rotary controls) which I like for easy use in a live setting.
  5. In pedal form, try a Line 6 DL4 - unless you really need it in a rack.

    Try to find an ex-studio Alesis Quadraverb. Mine dates to 1991, is in pristine condition & has more uses than just delay - and I paid AUS $130 for it :)
  7. I got me a Boss DM-100 ( ). It's an analogue box and sounds amazing has only got a 300/400ms delay though according to Harmony Central. It also has built in chorus that sounds so thick, much thicker than I can get out of the CEB-3 i've got. A cracking analogue delay if you can find one.
    I *coughs* aquired this box from a friend and i've looked on the 'bay several times and haven't seen one, however it's bigger brother the DM-300 sold on ebay for $200US.
    I used a Alesis Midiverb4 on some vocals once and it did some pretty interesting stuff. Like others have said Lexicon and Alesis stuff is pretty good.
