Default "Elvis" Slapback?

What are the suggested settings for a nice Slapback delay in the early Elvis stuff and other Rockabilly records. I tried using the "Slapback" default on Dynamic Delay, but it sounds nothing like it. Any suggestions? What about the Lennon plate reverb sound and double effect with Pt11 default plugins?

Try 75ms and 150ms delay times and about 5 repeats

Also, roll off some top from the return.

...and do not forget HPF either. Delay return also sounded dirty back then so try to destroy it a little

Default Re: "Elvis" Slapback?

I'd send to an aux that has a slapback delay (with low feedback so you only get one or two repeats) and a room reverb. Tape delay if possible, that's what was going on in the original. Start around 200 ms and adjust to taste.

But this resource seems to imply 530 ms is what would be used on those Elvis records.
