The MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay Pedal features a completely analog audio path for the ultimate in rich, warm delay-made possible only by old-school bucket brigade technology. This design boasts an amazing 600ms of delay time with optional modulation via a top-mounted switch and a simple, three-knob layout that controls Delay time, Mix (dry/wet blend), and Regen (delay repeats)-all in a pedal no bigger than a Phase 90. In addition, the M169 pedal has two internal trim pots that offer user-adjustable width and rate control of the modulation for even more tonal options. The Carbon Copy effect pedal will take you from crisp "bathroom" slap echoes to epic, Gilmour-esque delays with a twist of a knob. True hard-wire bypass, single 9-volt operation, and stage-ready blue LEDs round out the package.

My first delay was an Echocord (yeah, I'm vintage too) and I'm drawn to to that soft, warm echo. The modulation on the echo gives a feel similar to the tape flutter on the old tape devices, actually better. Great for old Ventures stuff.

Lush delay that enhances your play and sound and play and sound and play and...... I bought mine in the L&M used section for 99 bucks. Well worth that price. Love this pedal.

I can't do without this pedal. I have it on all the time in one way or another. Specifically good for that Dave Gilmour-ish sound. You can even manipulate a good, short reverb sound. I can't think of any style of music that wouldn't benefit from using it.

With analog delays, bucket brigade technology, and the brand that is already well recognized, the MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay doesn’t disappoint. With its price point, it is an investment, but it’s not a temporary solve, it’s a permanent solution to all your delay uses. You can go from dreamlike chorus delays thanks to its outstanding mod, to slap reverb used in the 70s blues. Although other brands may have more feature, this is what you’re gunning for! Try one in your local Long and McQuade today!

I picked this bad boy up and when I plugged it in, I was blown away! The sounds you can get from this are way cool, and the modulation adds to the fun. I recommend. I just wish the price tag wasn't so high. Nevertheless, great pedal.

This delay exceeds all other delays and all expectations. I used to own the boss delay and it was pretty decent but I almost never used it so I sold it. Recently I found myself craving to own a delay again and I am a big MXR endorser so I checked out the carbon copy and everything about it screams perfection nice warm analog tone with smooth regen and the simplicity of the pedal makes it perfect for any type of player and the modulation option tops this sweet pedal off with perfection

Over all, this is a good delay pedal, and is a lot more 'natural' sounding than most delay pedals I've tried and owned. By natural, I'm referring to or comparing it to an actual tape delay, such as a Roland Space Echo, or the Tube Tape Echo type machines. I use this in my pedal box along with, alternating between the Carbon Copy, and the Boss/Roland 'Space Echo' dual pedal. I feel personally that the Boss/Roland Space Echo edges the Carbon Copy out just slightly in terms of a 'natural' sound from a digital delay, but it's pretty close, and I use it on songs that I want a more 'over the top-ish' delay on, mostly for rockabilly/rock n roll/surf/hillbilly-ish type stuff, and at times, for a crazy over the top 'Cliff Gallup' type of slap back, I'll use both delays at the same time. I usually set the Carbon Copy a little more 'up' in the volume/mix wise, and use the Space Echo a little more subtly, so I have the ability to change or switch the slap back sound on particular songs in the set list on the fly, live etc. I haven't used the Carbon copy for very long delay sounds yet, or regularly but I'm sure it would do well going by the sounds I got from it when I first bought mine and was messing around with it, exploring its capabilities etc. It seems very solidly built, and you can't mistake that blinding blue light, you'll know when it's on for sure haha! For the price, this is a great delay, and should survive many sessions of stomping on it. If you can find one used and not abused, it's an even better deal. Check one out and see for yourself.

Amazing pedal with a really natural tone. It also does a super awesome feedback thing when u have the Regen around 3oclock to max. So this pedal isn't great for a lot of repeats but

I agree with Jimmah Fro that this pedal lacks a few bells and whistles such as being able to set your delay by tapping however if you are looking for a warm, clean, honest delay in a small robust stomp box then this is it. I love the blue LED's and the Modulation Mode. Definitely a lot nicer sound than my brother's digital delay.

Has a dark, warm sounding sound to it. Kinda dirty with lots of character. Works good for slapback as well as long delay sounds. Simple and versatile. Not quite as feature packed as some other delays but has a great sound. Also the blue LED is blindingly bright. The modulation sounds good too. (But I don't use it much.) Overall one of the best anolog delays on the market atm imo.

My name is Adrian Blaney lead guitarist of Tracenine, gigging from Europe to USA. I was looking for a delay pedal on my pedal board that was a little softer not as hard in the delay such as digital. My choices has alway been Boss or MXR so MXR it was to purchase. The Carbon copy is small, bright Blue LED with mix, delay regen and modulation switch ( the switch is like the EVH Phase 90 script switch top left corner) I just love this pedal i still continue to use my 3 digital delay pedals on my current pedal board 2 of the Boss DD-3 and 1 Boss DD-6 for tap delay, however the carbon copy and analog delay and its such a smooth delay with modulation , from slap back to U2 to my favorite Eddie Van Halen delay tones mixed with a little reverb. I love this pedal its not as harsh as my digital delays which I'll continue to use but it adds creme on your notes very impressed with the delay time. its rugged as all MXR's I'm going to purchase another one for my effects loop, go to Long and mcquade and try one out, the staff there are amazing for customer service. Step into the right direction with me , Cheers Adrian.

Great warm delay, and the modulation really adds a nice effect. While I still like the Digital Delays from Boss. This has a warmth and a vintage tone that works great with my vox tube amp and other analogue pedals.
