Money well spent if you don't need the bells and whistles.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay (Electronics)I had the privilege of using an original Echoplex delay box that was lent to me years ago. After returning the Echoplex, I've relied on an inexpensive digital delay pedal that recently began to bomb out on me. After reading a lot of info and positive reviews on the MXR Carbon Copy Delay pedal, I decided to take the plunge and purchase it online at Amazon. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised.
The pedal is nice and compact...no bigger than a phase 90. Sound-wise it's not quite an echoplex...but does have warm tonal characteristics that remind me of the old school delay sounds. The modulation button is a nice touch and does sound similar to the tape warble heard on the echoplex. It basically varies the speed of the echo...creating a chorus effect when heard along with your original signal. This is a very subtle chorus sound...but that's how I remember (and like) it. The pedal will also self oscillate when the repeats are pushed to the max for some crazy... Read more

This review is from: MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay (Electronics)The MXR Carbon Copy is becoming a baseline standard by which other delay pedals are compared. That's not saying it's average, or the best, but it's a fine little pedal. Despite the name, the repeats are anything but carbon copies of the dry signal. Compared to a pristine digital delay, the Carbon Copy's repeated tone is warm, dark, and ethereal. There's a hint of overtones in there, too. Compared to one of my other favorite delays, the Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy Analog Delay, which has a heavier modulation and adds a little dirt to your tone, the Carbon Copy is very clean and subtle.
My favorite setting points the Mix and Delay knobs to about 10 o'clock, and the Regen to 1 or 2 o'clock for a rich sound on my rhythm guitar parts. If you're looking for a great analog delay, this is an excellent place to start.

Excellent analog delay for the money, small footprint,
This review is from: MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay (Electronics)This is an excellent choice if you're looking for a nice analog delay with a small footprint. It looks great, it's easy to use, and it's a fantastic size for a delay pedal. The analog delay is nice and warm -- much more satisfying than digital delay to my ears. Also, the modulation button enables you to add a chorusing effect to the delays. At factory setting, it's a bit over the top, but an internal trim pot enables you turn down the modulation to something more usable.
I have no complaints whatsoever about this pedal -- it's great for the price. However, I ultimately switched to a EH Deluxe Memory Man. Despite being much larger in size, the DMM has a nicer sound to my ears and has a bit more functionality. The DMM is quite a bit more expensive, though -- almost twice the price, and more than twice the size. I've actually kept this pedal as a second delay.
