I sold a boss dd7 in the search of a true analog sound. I ordered this online (bad idea) because of the amazing versatility that offered and because of the price. Out of the box and plugged, it dissapointed me totally. Yes, the analog sound was there, but completely masked by a horrible white noise over every repeat. It's more noticeable when I turn the effect blend (and feedback) knob up. So, if you wanna use it just like an adding colour to your tone thing, buy it. But if you want a hearable DELAY, don't even think about it. The on/off switch is also annoyingly LOUD. This thing really sucks. It has all the potential to be the best delay in the market (for the price), but honestly, just another EHX failure. I'm pretty mad with them not also because of the delay, but also because of their bad client service. I live outside USA, so I asked them if they could send me some online instructions or some kind of help. First time, they said that I could send the pedal to the fabric (so they didn't even read my mail completely), so I wrote another e-mail wich they never answered. Save your money for something better!!!!

.Ok, I get it. It's an analog delay with bucket brigade technology. There is inherently going to be some noise as the delays degenerate. The experience that I had with this pedal was beyond acceptable analog noise. Even with short delay times and minimal feedback, there was an unmistakable and bothersome "white noise" accompanying each repeat. It was very disheartening as online video demos made it seem warm and delicious, and certainly not noisy. Did I have a defective unit? Perhaps. Regardless, back in the box it went and back to MF I sent it with no desire to try another unit. The other aspects were cool: send and return lines for inserting other effects on the delayed signal, tap tempo, tempo divide, expression pedal input, etc. The square wave modulation effect is basically a gimmick. Not usable for most styles of playing. Would sound awesome on a synth or drum machine, but not guitar. Triangle modulation was nice, but only to a certain point, after which it also became more novelty than usable. I sold my Line6 Echo Park looking for something "real," but this certainly wasn't the answer.

.It was between this and the TC Electronic Nova Delay. I finally landed on the DMB. Admittedly, when I first plugged it in, the sounds I was getting out of it gave me instant buyer's remorse. I gave myself a headache worrying I'd bought the wrong pedal. The next day, I sat down and started playing guitar and turning knobs. Within an hour, I'd found half a dozen sounds that were not only useable, but were downright great sounding. Within a week, I'd worked out more than a dozen different sounds/functions for this pedal. That's actually quite a lot for any single effect. Not to mention the fact that I still have some ground to cover--I don't have any other cool effects to run through the built in effects loop.(see EHX's site for ideas) and I don't own an expression pedal yet. However, one of the best parts is this: after experimenting, I realized I had a box that could offer at least five different types of effects. Not just five effects settings, but five different effects: delay, reverb, chorus, vibrato, and boost/overdrive. Delay is obvious--that's the purpose of this pedal. With some tweaking, you can also get a good faux reverb out of it. Using the modulation and minimizing the delay time, you can use it for a dedicated chorus or vibrato effect. And, perhaps the most surprising discovery of all: if you turn the gain all the way up and the blend all the way dry, you have a very powerful and low-noise boost/overdrive pedal. Obviously not why you buy a pedal like this, but it's a nice bonus. This feature in conjunction with my MXR Micro Amp makes my blues-flavored tube head sound like a hard-rock/heavy metal machine. Now, about a month later, I'm absolutely stoked that I put out the cash for this delay. It probably won't leave my pedalboard until it dies. With any effect, you've got to be willing to put in the study time to learn what it does and how to tweak it. This one is no different. If you're looking for a perfectly clean delay that faithfully recreates the tone of your guitar, this isn't the one for you. If you're looking for a versatile pedal whose delays have dark, vintage mojo and that can do other mainstay effects in a pinch too--get this one!

.Tap tempo, tempo divide, effects loop, exp pedal control... Hard to find those features in a "true" analog delay, much less for this price point! (although the soon to be released Way Huge Supa will be worth a look at ~$60 extra) "Gain" control is also great for matching your uneffected volume. I wish more delays (hint:Memory Man w/Haz) had that feature!

The sound is classic analog goodness. Darkish repeats that eventually smear into a near infinite ambient wash... or with a tweak of the feedback control (or better yet, expression pedal) take it to full-on oscillation or dial it back to a great slap back.

You can get some very useable lush modulation on the sine wave side. The sqaure wave side can get pretty whacky quick but offers some fun!

Only nit is with clean guitar and low ambient conditions, a small amount of white noise is observed while the repeats are in the buffer.

For live use it is great! And easily dialed in so the repeats sit well in the mix. I have not tried the Memory Boy in the studio yet... But all indications are it's a keeper for me!

.Bought this right when it came out. The tap tempo was what sold me at first since it is absolutely essential in a live setting. Got the pedal plugged it in, was very pleased. The analog tone is so nice and warm. Even using telecaster single coils it comes through very rich and flowing. My only complaint with the delay section is that the feed back begins to selfoscillate a little too quickly, only around 12 or 1 o clock where as i hoped that i could dial in feed back up to maybe 3 or so before i had to worry about SO. as for the other features, the square and sine waves are very interesting but not a whole lot of use aside from maybe use with synthesizers? the sine is nice to add a little flow to the delaysmy biggest grip how every is that with the features there is no reverse delay, which i was hoping foreither way i Love this pedal, nit picky things aside this is a great pedal. analog tone with all the tools to control it accurately and quickly. perfect for working with a live drummer.

.I saw some strange complaints about this pedal. I've had no problems out of mine. I used it through an entire performance today and heard no extra noise or whistling. I did notice a change in tone ...but that was corrected by turning the gain knob on the pedal up. I found this very useful to switch to a cleaner delay signal during my performance. I also fell in love with the easter egg mode that goes through the note cycle. The tap tempo and tone of this pedal basically make it priceless to me. I've had tap tempo digital delays and they never pleased my ears or my pedal board. The Line 6 DL4 is junk for those seeking real tone. You can find your sound here with this amazing pedal. It tops every memory man I've used minus a little modulation. I miss that, but it was a great trade off for the addition of tap tempo, and amazing loop to run gain or other effects through, and an expression pedal input that can vary every knob on the pedal. Amazing feature if you have a spare volume/expression around. My only quarrel is with the buttons that change modes and notation...they are kind of flimsy feeling. I'd really recommend this over any delay out there. It wont repeat infinitely or turn into a looper but it will do great delay sounds with the addition of leaving your tone genuine and realistic.

.I don't review every product I buy but this one I think deserves more kudos than I think it gets credit for. It's an analog delay so that means it's going to have characteristics that will seem strange if you are coming directly from something like a Boss Digital Delay and don't have experience with Analog Delays.

But compared to something like a Carbon Copy, the repeats are brighter and much more pristine and precise. It doesn't get nearly as hissy and "swirly" as the Carbon Copy and the repeats don't saturate nearly as quickly. It's a good medium between the Carbon copy and something super bright and chorus-ey as the Deluxe Memory Man.

It also quite a character to the sound, not too dark, and not too bright. It's not nearly as sterile sounding as things like the Way Huge Supa Puss, Memory Lane, and the JHS panther. But yeah, let's just say I have no limit to what I can spend on delays. I tried them all, and chose this!

.The Deluxe Memory Boy is a top of the line analog delay with features not normally on an analog delay. Having tap tempo and subdivisions available is great to have live and having a loop available gives you some unique tones to play with. The tone is VERY warm, warm by analog standards even. However, the texture you can achieve by using this pedal is phenomenal! Is this a memory man...No. Can I get great analog memory man like tones...yes. The only "complaint" I have is not necessarily a Memory Boy issue, but analog delays. The delay time is very short. If you need more, than you should look elsewhere. However, combining the price with the tone of this thing....it's a no brainer.
Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy Delay Guitar Effects Pedal
.I love the versatility of this pedal for a slimmed down environment. Modulation and delay layered together in a convenient platform with analog tone. My only complaint is the "digital" tonality when adjusting on the fly.
Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy Delay Guitar Effects Pedal
.i bought this pedal specifically for the send/return after owning a normal memory boy. it sure had a lot more more under the hood, with tempo rate divisions to thirds and dotted, infinite feedback.. it is easynto color the delay with any other effect, i used a reverb, a pitch shifter & a fuzz pedal on the return signal. it's amazing. used it on guitar and on lead synth (arturia minibrute and moog slim phatty) to creat pads and soundscapes.
