Boss DD-20 Giga Delay

Boss DD-20 Giga Delay

vintage or discontinued similar sound

The DD-20 has 4 presets, plus a 5th for whatever the delay mode knob is currently turned to. It's got a screen which is helpful when tweaking parameters, and legendary Boss build quality. The DD-20 is also a bit smaller so you'll have room for another pedal :)

Vox DelayLab Ultimate Delay Effects Pedal

Vox DelayLab Ultimate Delay Effects Pedal

vintage or discontinued similar sound

A great DL-4 alternative, and in many ways superior. No volume drop issues, "Seamless Bypass," and it sounds at least as good as the DL-4. The looper is great as well.
