"Great modulated delay"

Made in Canada, this is a great delay for if you liked the old Electro Harmonix Memory Man Deluxe, Memory Man...Memory lane..get it?
Controls are delay time (up to 550 ms), feedback amount (how many repeats), feed back eq (great for shaving off top end for a tube tape echo sound), switch that assigns the second foot switch to either function as a tap tempo or to turn off the modulation and give you a regular analog delay), and a mix control.


UTILIZATION

Obvious approach is my Strat or Tele into some overdrives into the Memory Lane into a Black face Bassman. However in addition to the regular in/out jack you have a kill-dry delay only out when you want to use the delay in your amp's parallel effects loop.
And my personal favorite is the expression port, not to use with a volume pedal to control the amount of repeats, although that is nice to have. But rather to insert another effect in the feedback loop, such as a Boss Octave box, to drop the repeats...and the repeats only by an octave.

SOUND QUALITY

How does it sound? Like a modulated analog delay should, swirly, gorgeous lush repeats. Analog heaven. Unlike my old Electro Harmonix Memory Man Deluxe that was noisy beyond believe, unusable in an effects loop...this has the sound AND the design was smart enough so you can actually make use of it.

OVERALL OPINION

If you like analog delay you'll dig this. If you like modulated analog delay you completely freak over this.
Regardless of whether you like delays before the amp or in the effects loop this will make your day and put a big smile on your face.
There are analog delays out there that I can work with like old Ibanez AD9, or the Carbon Copy from MXR, but unless you throw me an original Roland Space Echo, or better yet an Echoplex, this is what i will grab for most any gig.
