MXR Carbon Copy analog delay - it's a delay and it's a nice shade of green.

...and I can't think of anything else to say about it. I've owned this pedal a couple of times and still can't get inspired. It's not a bad pedal at all, the real flaw being the lack of 100% wet delay and the modulation isn't very controllable, but it sounds alright. It just doesn't tickle the sensitive areas of my brain.

Paul Cochrane Tim - the best overdrive pedal ever.

And I sold it...

It needs a valve amp to shine. I don't have one and I'm really only playing Rat pedals into the DAW now so I sold it. Hands down the best overdrive I've used. Throw anything into it, use it as a stacker. Great EQ, fine boost, everything about it is great. 

The Boss DD-7 delay - classic Bossiness.

It works, it's simple, and it has great routing options. The secondhand prices are excellent and this kicks the ass of some more expensive delays.

A big Boss win here. Team this up with an analog delay and get the best of both worlds.
