MXR M-169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay (

The MXR Carbon Copy was my first analog delay.  Since then I have moved on but not because the Carbon Copy lacks in any areas (other than the omission of tap tempo).  Since playing the Carbon Copy again, I have sincerely missed this pedal.  I think of all of the analog delay pedals at this price point, there is nothing better than this.  MXR does a great job here in making sure to keep the integrity of your signal, while providing a warm boost to your tone.  It tracks long and short delay times with wonderful ease, and even has a great modulation option which can be adjusted under the pedal housing.  All in all, this is a great pedal for it’s price!

Highly recommend this pedal! Shelby plays guitar for the Chicago-based band, Minor Characters. Click HERE to listen and connect with their music.
