Product Description

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.

Again.. this lets me put in a rating but the category isn't showing up.
So.. I'll give it a 9 on general principles.

I would not buy this unit unless I KNEW that I wanted the volume boost it gives.
I don't know of anyone who has a delay on all the time, do you?

Still. I have to say.. the tone is very nice. it's quite analog.. short on features? yeah but we KNEW
that, didn't we? This is the type of pedal I'd want if this didn't have the big vol. boost.
I like my Rogue Delay for the Tweed amp.. and I'll get something else for my Marshall clone.
9 on features as a penalty for the mod switch. you really have to reset the pedal to get a sound you can live with with the mod sw. on.
it varies in sound depending on the other settings of the pedal.
so.. nice but needs a bit of work.
Unlike others, I have NO issues with this pedal. I build and repair amps pedals and guitars.
There's a lot of stuff out there that suffers a bit from mass manufacturing processes.

My pedal does not pop at all. And I use it in an 8 Pedal line up, directly into a tube amp I made myself.

I simply don't have any complaints.
I have no idea what category is supposed to be for this part.. since it doesnt' show up.

it has a boost. a slight upper midrange emphasis, too.

I would keep this pedal if it weren't for that boost!
Play this, for example, in my Tweed Deluxe clone. which is notorious for having a tender front end..
and it pushes into overdrive every time.
That was a really stupid thing to do.
Each time you turn it on, you're getting a pretty strong signal boost.
The tonal change is in the wrong area.. though I'd prefer to have none, exactly because of that..
it pushes overdrive and pushes fizz!

I have to either set my amp for lower volume so it doesn't boost.. or put another pedal in there to hold it back.
Which means I'd have to turn two pedals on and off at the same time.

it needs a Level control or get rid of that boost!

.Yes you get a pop when you switch off or on, that is a common problem with any true bypass effect. There are plenty of sites on the web that explain how to rid any pedal of this problem with some basic soldering skills and a few cents worth of parts. Yes it is noisy, it's analog. The chorus effect is not a shimmery clean pretty sound, it's a dark, warbley, worn out tape sound. With it on, you really can capture some authentic tape type delays. Bare in mind that the low fi, noisy, "warmth", is a feature, not a drawback. If you want crystal clean repeats with no insane oscillation with the repeats past 12'o'clock, buy a digital delay pedal. Very reverby slapbacks to a decent dissonance of delay. The mix well, I'm not a fan of that, I'd rather have a volume control, but I can see the appeal to some players. This isn't an up front in your face delay, this is a back in the mix kinda thing. Again if you want a prominent in your face delay, go digital. I have this and a digital delay, because there really is no other way to get the best of both worlds without buying a super expensive boutique delay. The Malekko 616 that is about $50 more is waaaay more pedal for the buck, but if you aren't in to noise-illation, and just want a mellow delay that sits back in the mix and adds effect, this little guy is the way to go. If the price ever drops to about $75, I don't think anyone would be able to compete with it at all.

.It's a good sounding analog delay, but it isn't transparent. When on it does boost your signal a bit and add some treble. It will self-oscillate. If you're looking for super long delay times, look elsewhere. The Memory Toy does the classic slapback and shorter delays very well. Quality is ok. One knob was crooked and I was able to "straighten" it--not sure about that. Be careful if you use batteries as the screw heads on the bottom are easy to round out.

.The good: Easy to use, nice features, sounds really sweet, and a great price. Well worth purchasing even though I have one not of concern.The concern: My Memory Toy worked fine for a couple of months then spontaneously stopped working, lights came on but no effects processing occurred.I contacted EHX and opened the pedal to remove the battery prior to shipping. The pedal has two circuit boards, with one attached to the other by eight pins fitted into sockets on the other board. I noticed that the top circuit board of the two in the pedal was loose, and had in fact separated from the main board.Once I pushed the board pins back into the sockets on the main board the pedal started working again, it seems that the one board must easily come loose from the main board causing the problems.I assume that the design that allows this to happen is the cause of the numerous similar issues I have heard of with this pedal, (some arriving DOA, etc.)I added a rubber pad to keep the board in place from now on.

.Let's be upfront about this: This is an ANALOG delay. Digital delay pedals tend to be a little easier to use, and you have to work a bit harder to find a subtle daly with this. But the price is right, and it definitely works. If you want a delay pedal that has presets, and is more "plug and play" this isnt the pedal for you. But I am satisfied and I'm not looking to replace it. It is a solid analog delay pedal.
Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy Analog Echo and Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal
.This pedal is a great delay for the average passive-pickup bass because it doesn't suck out the bass frequency, and it's very close to unity gain, so no volume dips when you use it. The Memory Toy ability to dial in a cool analog chorus effect is a big bonus considering a pronounced delay is only usable a couple of times in a set if you're on bass, and chorus is a very usable bass effect. The only con I've found is that you can't have too much attack to your bass notes, as there will be a sort of popping sound relative to how hard you hit the string. This is more a result of the pedal really nailing the analogy tape delay feel and sound, though, so I'm actually impressed. It just keeps it from being used on driving bass lines. Excellent for ambient, however.

.It's a great compact mini pedal with great tone. If you like not fancy sounds and more hard rock bluesy sound this is it.
Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy Analog Echo and Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal
.I have not been 100% satified as it sometimes works as expected, sometimes it seems to be useless. I noticed at once when I recieved it ( putting in new 9 volt battery ) that 3 of the screws were partially stripped, so someone had been inside it before. I emailed EH tech support and they were very helpful. I like EH products, but would not buy this one again, probably get Memory Boy next time..
Mod swith adds a lot to usefulness, fairly straightforward in functionality.
Case and switches appear to be high quality and sturdy.
Probably one of the better delay pedals out there for under a hundred bucks.

.After looking for several months for a good analog delay pedal, I was nearly convinced on the MXR Carbon Copy. I stopped in my favorite local guitar shop where I had tried out the pedal before, and the owner quickly showed me this brand new pedal. It has all the same controls as the Carbon Copy, although named differently, and the sound is a great, warm, analog tone. A month later, I still love this pedal. The tone is absolutely fantastic. It's perfect for Pink Floyd. I highly recommend this!
Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy Analog Echo and Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal
.I use this pedal with an acoustic rig. I won't put it on my electric rig as I don't care for the overall sound through a tube amp and electric guitar.

I found information on the web about tweeking T8, the trim pot screw at the very top of the pedal to do away with that seasick chorus sound. It works fine now, but I still don't use chorus. It's a bit muddy to me, the repeats and the delay don't stand out like they would with a digital or possible better circuit.

It's built well enough and by now they have cured the issue of the boards separating but not by much, just a rubber pad glued to the bottom of the board that recieves pressure from the back plate.

I do like that LED ZEP echo before the chord thing it can do if the blend is put to about 3 o'clock and the others are high too.

Overall, i bought it expecting different, but it's still useful for what I use it for.
