Overview

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.

I've had a couple digital delays in the past, but none I've been really impressed with the sound. This analog delay really carries through the warm tone of the first iteration. I also have an MXR Dyna Comp from the 70's that is still one of my main pedals, so I know they are built to last. Simple to use, great sound, solid construction, I'd highly recommend this pedal.

I recently bought this delay pedal for use with my Peavy JSX and my Ibanez RG Prestige with EMG 81/85 s for lead work and soloing, as well as some clean playing as well. The main problem I had with this delay was that the sound (doubled up) on itself too much and the sound was incomprehensible. I know it wasn�ۡ���t just the way I set it because I spent hours trying every possible combination.

Comments about MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

Needed something that would do justice to the old style tanks when running the pedal board to the clean settings amp or DI to PA. This is a simple pedal without a lot of options. The thing is a reverb. You get excellent reverb. Had sometimes used my Lexicon MX200 in the chain, but it is just huge and requires me to carry a rack in addition to the pedal board. The Carbon Copy makes your rig sound like you have it plugged in to a Fender Reverb (pretty much if you have it set right). So, it does what its name implies... Really nice reverb. There is a button that lets you add a flanging character to the sound, but I don't use it much. The reverb just makes things NICE.

    Best of my digital pedals. Works great, great effects for my music. I bought a digital pedal at half the price and put the cheap one back on the shelf.

      True analog delay with dark, imperfect repetitions from the beginning. The modulation could be better but that is a plus. Recommended if true analog sound is desired.

        Comments about MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Initially needed slapback on my cleans especially on my DR, but found many interesting variations beyond. The "Mod" button is a sweet bonus.

        The tone is perfect with none of the usual artifacts produced by digital delay - well beyond anything I have tried. Jim Dunlop knows is stuff.

        WELL DONE MXR!

        By Don

        from Phoenix, AZ

        Comments about MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This is the first analog delay I have had. I love the 'warm' sound with the option of 'wet' or 'dry' sound as well. This is one tough little pedal! It is well made to withstand whatever you throw at it (within reason of course). It makes my so-so guitar playing sound top notch when I get 'in step' with the delay - something I am still trying to master. I highly doubt you will regret getting this pedal. True - it doesn't have the sound-on-sound ability and the deep memory that a digital pedal does but for most players, I think it is a great tool for your music arsenal.

        Comments about MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I've always been a fan of analog delay over digital. This pedal is awesome!. I have it on quite a bit. Mostly for slap back effect but, adjust it here and there for whatever is needed. Tweet the modulation a bit when I first got it and I don't know if I could survive with out this pedal.

        Goodbye Boss DD-3, Hello Carbon Copy!

        By RUSSELL HIRN

        from The Pines, NJ

        Comments about MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I originally bought this at the GC in Cherry Hill, NJ to replace my Boss DD-3 that I sold along with two other Boss pedals. It's an AMAZING upgrade and I can tap in all of the favorite classic delays just perfect (U2, Pink Floyd, and my personal favorite, Funkadelic's Maggot Brain) If you're looking for warm and rich analog delay, then THIS pedal is for YOU!

        from Bethlehem, PA

        Comments about MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This puppy pops right out of the box. She performs seamlessly, especially in tandem with a Phaser. Pink Floyd dreams, for sure. This pedal is well-built, with power to spare. Great investment for the pedal array.

        Exceeds Expectations

        By Aaron Buchholz

        from Sioux Falls, SD

        Comments about MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        The MXR Carbon Copy is one of the few products that comes along that is truly noteworthy and fits in the category of "a must have" pedal. There has been a lot of rave and hype about this delay pedal, and I can say what you have heard and read is true. The pedal, like all MXR products, is straight forward, easy to use, and ready to go right out of the box. You can adjust the Regen, Max, and Delay knobs and there is a lighted blue off/on Modification switch. The instructions come with slap, standard, and long delay settings for you to use. It would be really hard to go wrong with this pedal. The range is endless and it produces a very warm, yet clear sound. The master footswitch is true bypass and is perfectly clean. Don't let the analog thing make you nervous. I owned and used a Boss DD3 Digital Delay for 7 years and the Carbon Copy has it beat in every way hands down and has a nicer tone. The pedal is identical is size and shape to the MXR Phase 90. There is a nice metallic green paint job and the blue LED light is extremely bright. All in all, Jim Dunlop has really outdone themselves with this pedal and really hit a grand slam with it. The only con about this pedal is once you have it....you will kick yourself for not buying it a long time ago!!
