Was using MXR Carbon Copy, but now using Hardwire Delay/Looper.
Lots of different settings available.


I'm using the DL8 out front and it suits my needs as well. The tape and lo-fi settings can really soften the edgy-ness of being digital I think. Plus, the 'slap' setting really nails the "slap time range" and makes it easier to dial in quickly.

To the OP, you have some pretty decent delays there and you want another for leads? I think all the ones you currently own are digital, maybe not the Headrush, and all should be easily tweaked for leads (at least the way I'd set it).

So, maybe you're really looking for a more analog sound (faux or organic) for your leads, instead of digital. I dunno, just thinking out loud :D

I have the Nova Delay in the loop. I love the thing. It's delay range is HUGE and if you calibrate it, it sound great at any volume. I have it set to about 525 and it gives me a nice subtle trail for single note passages. I leave it on all the time and just activate it with the FX loop switch on the Mark V switcher.


Sorry to revive this old thread. I too am a huge fan of the nova delay, and once I get my Mark V I wanna put it in the loop but how do you use the tap tempo when it's up by the amp? Or do you use longer cables? I'm just worried about the loss of high end due to long cables there.

I have a Timeline and Eventide H9 in the loop of my Mark V but my current fave for classic rock solos is the Boss DM2 Waza Craft, It enhances without detracting from the solo

Strymon DIG, brigadier and Big Sky. Boss Tera Echo all seem to work with the Mark V loop and no tone loss or other issues. Look for pedals that can handle line level signals down to instrument level.

There is Ebtech line level shifter made for FX loops that can run instrument up to line level and back down to instrument or goes the other way so if you have pedals and want to use them with the Mark V but have tone suck issues this may be an option.

I own a Flashback X4, Flashback, and an Alter Ego v2 and they all sound amazing in the loop.

My Eventide H9 sounds beautiful - delay's and everything else. It was the first time I used a pedal in effects loops and I didn't have to adjust anything on the amp (levels switchs etc....)

If you only want delay Timefactor might be the way to go - but there is not a huge difference in price between the 2 so i'd say keep both in mind.

I use an Empress Superdelay (for the Tape Delay) behind a Strymon DIG in the Loop.
