Boss RV-3

Is this pedal good for U2??

Its not longer made but I can find it on ebay..it has both reverb and delay, but from what I read the delay has a max of 2 seconds and when you add the reverb it only has a max of 1 second...is this bad?

It's decent. You can get them used on e-Bay... but if you want a decent "U2-ish" delay in stompbox form...

...The Boss DD-20 Giga-Delay is pretty great.

The cool thing about the RV-3 is that you can use it as "digial delay" or "reverb" or settings with BOTH.

right, only thing is when you use both it it kinda downs the delay a bit, and I have a pretty decent reverb on my amp

I have a question, with the DD20, can you have two delays on it, like a shorter and a longer one?

Does it have a stereo delay setting, like the Line 6 DL-4 has? With such a setting you could offset the two delays into a long and a short one.

As for the RV-3, Radiohead uses it a lot.

DL-4 is one of the most versatile and affordable delays. I love mine.
