Is there tap tempo apps for analog delay pedals?

A readers’ question to the Dude:

For my Telecaster, I use an analog setup: A Mad Professor Sweet Honey Deluxe, a MXR Analog Chorus, a MXR Carbon Copy into a Fender Custom Vibro Champ Reverb.

Is there any other delay you would recommend? I want something with tap tempo and a small footprint… Continue reading “Which pedal should I get: Walrus Audio ARP 87 or DOD Rubberneck?”
