    Whats the best multieffect pedal for creating a great U2 sound?

    Im looking at a boss multieffects pedal because its in my price range as oppsed to Line 6 or Nova TC. Any experiences good or bad out there

    He used to use EH Memory Man delay pedals, you'll be able to replicate the sound with anything that has a decent dotted 8th note delay though, the Boss DD20 and the DD6 both have it if memory serves correct.

    Another thing to look out for is to get something with a tap tempo if possible, makes life on stage handier if you're not playing to a click.

    Can you programme delay timings (digital display)? into the EH Memory Man or do you have to tap in timings? and then store it

    The memory man has no tap function or display.
    You control your delay time/feedback etc using potentiometers so it's a little tricky to get an exact delay time as far as I'm aware.
    I don't use one for that reason, I tend to play to a click on stage so I like to have a digital delay where I can set the exact delay time to the millisecond.

    I have got that effect on my tc electronic flashback. Has a dotted 8th setting and you hit the strings to set the tempo, instead of tapping the foot switch. Great pedal and fairly affordable.
