This is an analog delay. This means the guitar tone in unaffected whether the pedal is on or off. This really only is a delay, but considering how versatile and warm sounding it is, it's all you want. It does have a switch with 2 internal pots that applies a chorus effect to only the delay but its only noticeable if turned up all the way (which never sounds good with chorus's) or in the studio. I gave it a 10 because all I wanted was a simple powerful and warm delay and I got that.


The setup to this baby is very simple. You have the Rate, which is the amount of times the delay repeats. Then you have the Mix, which is just how loud the delay is. The last knob is the delay, which controls the time between delay. There is also a button with its own LED light that allows you to add delay onto only the delay. There are 2 internal pots you can turn that affect the speed and modulation of the chorus as well. All of this is very easy to use, as all MXR products are, and its fun, which is the most important.

I give this delay 10 for use because you can really do anything despite the simplicity. Great quality.


The delay on this pedal is great. It's so warm, which is rare among delay these days, and its a breeze to get any sound you want. You use it lightly in place of reverb, Pink Floyd delay tones, or add in a wah-wah for the lead in Maggot Brain by Funkadelic. With a little tweaking you can easily get a great delay for you. If you let the delay ring and spin the Delay knob, you can hear the sound modulate and it sounds authentic and real cool. I use mine with my Gibson SG Standard, an MXR Distortion III, my custom made Fuzz pedal, a Dunlop Cry Baby, and an Electro-Harmonix Small Stone through a Fender Blues Deluxe and I love it.

Thats why I'm giving this a 10 for sound too. Of course if you're buying this pedal then you really care about sound. Other delay have more features but they are all clicky and get old quickly.


I've had this delay since the beginning of summer and I can't get enough of it. I love how warm and authentic the sound is, as well as the easy to use configuration. It's a little pricey at $179.99 but you if you are a serious musician than this is a worthwhile investment. I consider every dollar well spent. I love that when you turn the mix up all the way, it's exactly as loud as the dry signal. I tried a few delays before this, a Digitech, a Tech 21, but none of them sounded as good as the Carbon Copy. The only complaint/suggestion is to shell out the extra 10 bucks for an adapter right away because this thing eats batteries weekly. If I lost mine, I would do whatever I could to get another. This is a great delay pedal. Thats why I give it another 10.
