Can anyone recommend a pedal to get  a decent slapback using tube amp and 3 string cigar box guitar? I'm thinking Scotty Moore, Stray Cats through to The Cramps.

Loads of demos on YouTube of people using various delay pedals, but also using high end 6 strings with expensive amps.

Cheers

A boss dd-6 will give you that and so much more. I have one on my pedal board now. That's on the board instead of my TC electronics Flashback X4. Way easier to use. Get a good Boss used off of ebay. And what's really cool is you can demo a Boss pedal at most music stores. So you can hear it before you commit to it. 

My biggest gripe about effects demos. Using a pedal that's supposed to make a solid state amp sound like a tube amp. Playing that pedal threw a tube amp... : ( Or worst. Turning the volume up on the pedal to the point of overdriving the tube amp. 

I use a line 6 pocket pod for everything. You can achieve practically any sound and save your favorites.

Mxr Carbon, BBE two timer, Mooer Ana Echo. All three are good in my opinion and analog .

I don't know if you are running a compressor. If you are not you might want to consider it.

Thanks for all the recommendations, keep them coming.

There's 2 American pedals on the market that are obviously aimed at exactly what I'm after, but at a price!

They're the Keeley Memphis Sun and the JHS Milkman, anyone tried them or know anyone who has?

Cheers

Let you know both of those pedals are gimmicks. They are simply watered down echo pedals. Neither of them would give you the opportunity to do anything but the narrow parameters they'er set with. The truth is if you set a pedal to have a slap back sound. Then play music that is traditionally heard with that sound. Your going to make that sound happen. Wether it's a gimmick pedal or a real work horse. Better to buy a real work horse pedal. Because it will give you the controls to do so much more. There are plenty of great echo pedals out there. Chose one that will allow you to do as much with it as possible. Get your monies worth out of it. Please don't fall into the digital ver analog trap. When your playing live no one will ever hear the difference.
