The MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay Effects Pedal delivers rich, organic delay tones using genuine bucket brigade technology. With up to 600ms of delay time and optional modulation, the Carbon Copy serves up everything from crisp slapback echoes to ambient washes of sound. This pedal puts lush, vintage-inspired delay at your feet for an affordable price.

Bucket Brigade Technology for Organic Delay

At the heart of the Carbon Copy is old-school bucket brigade technology, which produces the warm, nuanced delay tones that analog pedals are known for. From subtle echoes to cascading repeats, the Carbon Copy gives your tone a sense of depth and space that just can't be achieved with digital pedals. MXR is thrilled to offer genuine bucket brigade technology in such an affordable, compact pedal.

Simple and Intuitive Controls

With just three knobs—Delay, Mix, and Regen—the Carbon Copy is easy to dial in and adjust on the fly. The Delay knob sets the time between repeats from 20ms up to 600ms. The Mix knob blends the dry and delayed signals, allowing you to find the perfect balance of direct and delayed tone. The Regen knob controls the number of repeats, from a single slapback to near-endless ambient washes. Two internal trim pots also allow you to adjust the modulation's width and rate for extra tonal flexibility.

Roadworthy and Stage-Ready

The Carbon Copy is built to withstand the rigors of the road and the stage. Its compact, lightweight aluminum housing takes up minimal space on your pedalboard while being durable enough for transport between gigs. Bright blue LEDs make it easy to see the pedal's settings under any lighting conditions. True bypass switching ensures the Carbon Copy won't color your tone when disengauged. Powered by a standard 9-volt adapter, the Carbon Copy is ready to deliver lush analog delay wherever your music takes you.
