(I’ve actually been gazing at this picture at random intervals throughout the day. That’s not healthy, is it?)
With that out of the way, I present you with the reasons why I’m so excited about the Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy:
- analog delay
- tap tempo
- expression pedal input
- tempo subdivisions
- modulation shapes
- true by-pass (assuming I actually turn it off at some point)
- effects loop
- apparently, a price point of less than $200 USD
The only reason I’m running a digital delay right now is because I didn’t feel like dropping $600 on the Memory Lane 2. Truth be told, I went with the digital Memory Man is because it has tap tempo and can do a fairly convincing modulated analog delay (minus the spaceship take-off). Unfortunately, I think it’s just a couple weeks away from retirement.
More to come…
P.S. I still love you too Angie, even if you’re not an analog delay pedal.
