Personally i would go for all-digitech pedals. I have Digitech Digidelay and DF-7 and they work perfect.

No problem, just keeping things tidy smile.gif

If you are prepared to spend a little extra for higher quality, check out Robert Keeley's website - he takes standard pedals and modifies them to sound better, and he has his own. The Keeley compressor is one of the best you can get, but its pricey.

Again as with Andrew and Matt,
Bob Keeley's pedals and mods are great - if you can get this for a good price it would be a great buy.
Bob and the guys at Keeley are also in my experience really nice and friendly so I'm sure would try to answer and help you whether you buy new or off Ebay. I wouldn't say that about a lot of companies.

If you go for it - go luck and get it for a good price.

Cheers,
Tony

ps - other pedals - chorus - I'd also look at Boss.
Compressor - think about what you want from a compressor before you decide to buy one.

I ordered a TS808 and a DS-1 from the US site.
Since the dollar is pretty cheap against the euro it is a good deal.

However, maybe I have to pay import tax sad.gif , in that case it is probably cheaper to buy from the UK site if you are in Europe.
(I think you don't have to pay import tax within the EU???)

You can avoice paying import tax if the item is sent as a 'gift'.

Not that I'd condone such a thing.
