Some Suggested Settings


“I originally had a digital delay and, although it did sound pretty good, there was just something missing. This pedal has it. The delay you get from an analog delay is noticeably better and you have more control over the sound. You can use this to get a quick, slap-back delay or you can use it to make super crazy spacey sounds. It has everything you could need in a delay pedal. This is, of course, unless you need two delays to create stacked effects . That’s why I still keep my digital delay on my board. Speaking of the pedal board, this MXR pedal takes up minimal space, so that is great. Fantastic pedal!”

“If you are looking for a great piece of equipment in the delay department, this is an excellent analog unit. I found it to be very sturdy with a high quality feel about it. It was simple to use with the ability to be very creative. I was very satisfied with the MXR carbon copy!”

“Great delay, easy to use, easy to get to where you want and built like a tank. Great value in the pool of delays we have available these days, which are many.”
