Do have any idea on how to emulate these tones? I like to emulate the fast delays. Are these stacking delays?

    I can't immediately hear anything that you'd need to stack delays to do - just a lot of feedback on the delay so that the repeats continue. – topo Reinstate Monica May 13 '16 at 6:57

    You seem to have the answer right in your question title. Use a fuzz pedal and a delay pedal. I'm not sure what a "stacking" delay is (never heard the term before), but a single delay pedal with the right settings should be able to get all of these delay sounds. – Todd Wilcox May 13 '16 at 13:27
  • @ToddWilcox 'stacking' just means running one pedal into another of the same type. – topo Reinstate Monica May 13 '16 at 15:25
  • yeah - no stacking required. Doesn't even need to be a tape delay, just a delay with a lot of feedback, as topo mentioned – Doktor Mayhem May 14 '16 at 14:07

That is most likely an Analog Tape Delay or tape delay simulator pedal. These were very popular. Pink Floyd used it a lot and Jimi Page liked to use it live during Dazed and Confused while playing with the bow.

I think the Echoplex Ep3 was the one used circa 1970.

Some had multiple tape loops to really go crazy.

Here's one that is homemade:
