    The only Delay pedal I like as much is the Caroline Lo-Fi one, but this one has more options as well as a Lo-Fi mode. It has some really cool uniquish features too. The switches both have momentary functions. You can hold one down to temporarily set repeats to infinite on a particular note or something.

    That being said, it ends up being more expensive than just the pedal, because if you actually want to use if with precision you have to get a separate clock pedal. Since all it has for adjusting timing is tap tempo. I don't care how good you are at doing tap tempo, you can't hit a BPM exactly on the nose tapping it in.
    yeah the tap tempo on the avalanche run is kind of frustrating i totally get it. That clock is a great solution to the problem.

    I'm a pedalboard minimalist. Delay and reverb are all you really need IMO.

    I do use a fuzz up front too, for lead sounds, used in the David Gilmour Big Muff fashion. It's not necessary, but often I like it more than a high gain channel for leads.

    The only other things I would get would be the Walrus Tremolo or another Mel-9 or similar unit.

    I had the Mel-9 and the C-9. Shit tons of fun, but for actual recorded mellotron or hammond sounds I play them on keys into NI's Kontakt. Great units though.

    I was thinking the next one would just be made out of a full moose skeleton.

    Yeah, the Disaster Area clock pedal I got is cool. I recommend grabbing one if you have a pedal that could benefit from it.

    I wasn't happy about paying $100-150 (I think it $120ish or something, they make a more expensive one with 6 outs) for an extremely situational accessory like that that is basically something that controls another pedal, but if you have more than one pedal you want to sync to the same BPM they are very useful.

    As far as recording or precision goes, you can't hit something specific like 123 BPM by tapping it in or with a standard knob included in the same pedal. You can tap in something close, but there is no way to hit it exactly. Even if you do, which isn't impossible, there is no way to know what BPM you tapped in.
