A guide to the Best Budget Delay Pedals – New & Used
Mr JHS‘s knowledge of old and new pedal effects is encyclopedic, and the videos he posts on his company’s YouTube channel about affordable pedals are always a great resource for the guitarist on a budget.
The video above is focused on the best budget delay pedals you can find for under $100, so we went ahead and created an interactive gallery of it. Some of these devices went up in price after the video, which is why we decided to use a slightly different title for this post.
Here’s the list organized in alphabetical order. Of course, you may want to keep in mind that there are several kinds of delay pedals: if you are happy with something basic and great sounding, look into the bucket brigade classics; digital delays, on the other hand, give you more options, and a few pedals on this list are full blown multi-mode juggernauts.
