My new love

Okay, well we haven’t met yet, but we’re being formally introduced in a few days at NAMM (okay, well I won’t be there, but I’ll be watching through the miracle of the internet)

(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
  • modulation
  • 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.
