Best Easy To Use Delay Under $200  (By Ronnie)

I had a EHX Deluxe Memory Boy and it just was not for me. 2 much Mumbo Jumbo that to me did not amount to too much but a noisy mess. Tried many other delays including the Boss DD series. And man they were only cool for slapback , otherwise sounded robot like. TC Flashback was almost my choice until I plugged in the CC. This thing can ring out some Gilmour in almost any Marshall stack I have. Very pleased. The search for a cheap , simple , good sounding delay is over. My next buy will be a T Rex , Empress , and a Wampler Tape Faux ( all over the $200 range ) Peace and Rock On !!!! (Posted on 1/5/15)
Analog Baby!  (By Andy Summers Wannabe)

I don't know why but I just find this pedal to be beautiful. It is packed with analog charm and the mod button kicks in that chorus like analog modulation on each repeat. Easy to dial this thing up to self oscillating or down to a strong single repeat. Per MXR tradition, it is packed in a little NEMA box with 3 vintage style knobs but the paint is a very high quality gloss, almost like car paint which makes it feel even more indestructible than the rest of MXRs pedals. The light is a blue LED similar to the type in LED flashlights and can easily be seen in the brightest of outdoor venues. It's not the end all pedal. Would be great if there was a high/low pass filter for the repeats but heck, it does add a ton of analog character to a pedal board. (Posted on 9/2/14)
Great Analog Delay  (By Ryan)

I bought this to replace my old DD6, and it took me a minute to adjust. My ears had been accustomed to the crisp, hi-fi repeats of the digital unit, and the CC's darker repeats just sounded off. After a while my ears adjusted, and the Boss pedal seems sterile and lifeless, where the MXR is lush and complex. On clean settings it adds another dimention to your tone, whether used for a short slapback echo, or long atmospheric repeats. The modulation is a great addition, though I found that the stock settings were a bit extreme. I set the internal trim pots to a slower rate, and a wider sweep for an even deeper sounding effect. Overall, I really love this delay. The price is resonable for the value, and even though there is no tap tempo, I don't miss it at all. The only thing I might change is adding a buffer instead of true bypass; I prefer the repeats to trail off after I bypass the effect, but this is a minor issue. Highly recommended! (Posted on 6/5/14)
I love this delay!  (By Siberian Khatru)

I have had this pedal for a long time, since it was introduced in fact, and it is still the best delay for me. If you are looking for exact copy delay repeats, this ain't it. The delay repeats roll off the highs beautifully and the lo-fi vibe is exactly what I want. Well done! (Posted on 1/22/14)
Great, but expensive analog delay  (By malevolentsparkle)

This is a true analog delay, it does not try and compete with digital delays on features but blows them away on tone. The repeats are rather dark so they sit nicely in the mix, and don't overpower the dry signal. If you want brighter in-your-face repeats then this is not the delay for you. (Posted on 8/23/13)
Creamy, Precise Delay  (By Bradley)

This is hands down the best delay pedal I have ever used. I owned a Boss DD-3 for many years and I have tried various other brands, but this little beauty takes the cake. The delay is pure analog so it produces a smooth and creamy sound. It is very easy on the ears in both clean and distorted settings, and it adds exponentially to your tone. When turned off it is true bypass, which means it does not color your guitar's natural tone in any way. I recognized a notable difference when I unhooked my DD-3 and plugged in the Carbon Copy.

The pedal is slightly smaller than most pedals but it is built like a tank. The price point is a little expensive but, in this instance, you get what you pay for. If you're looking for a creamy, true bypass, analog pedal then look no further. The Carbon Copy is one of the best there is! (Posted on 8/17/13)
