I love digital delay, so my review may be somewhat biased. I do, however, love my MXR Carbon Copy, but this Hotone Eko is a great sounding delay. The repeats can get chirpy, and I think it does not have as much range as more expensive delays or even the MXR Carbon Copy. It is noticeably brighter than the MXR CC, but to my ears the Modulation feature on the Eko sounds better than that on the MXR CC. Overall I think this is a great pedal packed with some nice features in a tiny package. It is also a transparent delay, or at least in my set up it is. My pedal chain into a Blackheart Handsome Devil w/ 1x12 extension cabinet is: TC Tuner w/buffer, Hotone Q-Box, Damage Control Demonizer, Hotone Djent, Eko, Caron Copy, Holy Grail Max, Beat Buddy, and Donner Looper.
