A small pedal with big-time delay.

The Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy effects pedal presents a pure analog delay for musicians who covet thick sound from a thin wallet. EH melds heritage with select components to present the musician with up to 550ms of delay. Not a toy but a professional tool that bathes your axe with organic depth and dimension. The selectable chorus is a lush bonus.

The Memory Toy can be used in combination with other effects processors. Experiment with any combination to develop your own unique sound. The footswitch toggles between effect and true bypass modes.

Delay controls the delay time of the EHX Memory Toy guitar pedal and the range of delay time is from 30ms to 550ms. Turn the delay time clockwise to increase the delay amount. The Blend control allows you to vary the mix of direct and delayed signals from 100% dry when set counterclockwise to 100% wet at full clockwise. The effect pedal's feedback control increases the number of delay repeats or multiple echoes. At high settings the unit will begin to self-oscillate. Fairly high feedback with short delay settings produces a reverb type of effect. The Mod switch will enable a slow modulation on the delay time similar to the chorus modulation of the Deluxe Memory Man. The Status LED shows that the Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy is in effect mode. When the LED is off, the Memory Toy is in true bypass mode. Use the footswitch to toggle between the two modes.

  • Brand New Love

    As reviewed by You Me on 10/10/2011

    Okay, love this pedal. Does everything it's supposed to, and sounds great. Seems like most people having problems with it bought it used and didn't play it at the store: Big mistake. Just sayin.

  • Great Delay, little Echo, little chorus.. A+++ Value

    As reviewed by jordan clark on 12/30/2011

    I was surprised to read all the negative reviews. The build quality is NOT bad, it is a pretty solid metal casing with tight input jacks, sturdy knobs, etc.. Any pedal can quit on you 4 or 5 months down the road or even 4 days after you buy it, thats the nature of stomping on a tiny device with your foot, on a circuitry board taking the impact. I am running it through a Marshall 100w Head with a 4(12) 1960's cab... I cranked it up loud and I did not get "grainy" or any tone or delay loss. As far as the chorus goes, you should be able to tell just by looking at the knobs in the picture that this pedal is not going to give you a whole lot of Chorus adjusting, it's mainly Delay with a tad of Echo built in... if you want more? Go buy a Chorus pedal... I have never heard of any Electro-Harmonix being "incompatible" on the effects loop.. This pedal is "so cheap" because it is very simple and doesnt do too much. Just regular delay, no tap-tempo like the pricy ones, with a touch of echo and chorus tone... along with a Mod switch. If you want simplicity and good delay for a great price, and reliability then pick one of these up, and grab pro-coverage while you're at it, remember that ANY pedal can die on you, they are electronics, people!!!!

  • Good pedal, but you get what you pay for.

    As reviewed by alex alamos on 8/31/2012

    I bought this pedal brand new, and liked it. The controls are simple and effective. No tap tempo or anything fancy. I was getting an annoying "SNAP" every time I turned the effect on or off. The snap would echo since it's a delay pedal. I had the GC 30 day warranty, so I got a another EHX Memory Toy. The second pedal didn't snap as bad, but I've noticed some "Grainy" noises in the actual delays. It helps if you turn the BLEND down, which diminishes the delay effect. I can live with this pedal, but it's not my favorite because of these issues. I've read that some Memory Toys stopped working just after a few months. So far that hasn't happened to me, but I don't abuse it at all. I don't gig with it, or take it on the road. I just play it at home. They seem to be kinda fragile in the inside, and the MOD switch is dangerously close to the toggle switch. I'd suggest getting GC's Pro Coverage if you're planning on abusing this pedal, or get a Boss DD3. Boss pedals seem to withstand almost anything. I love the organic feel that analog provides in a delay, and the Memory Toy does that. It might die on you in the long run though. I'd suggest paying extra on something flawless that you know will last you a long time.
