MXR Announces 10th Anniversary Carbon Copy Analog Delay

The limited-edition model features a lightweight aluminum housing with a metallic silver finish.

Benicia, CA (October 18, 2018) -- In the 10 years since its release in 2008, the MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay has become a rock ‘n’ roll staple. Its rich bucket-brigade warmth, elegant simplicity, and healthy reserve of delay time have endeared it to guitar players around the world—weekend warriors and recording pros alike. The universal appeal of the Carbon Copy Delay is evident in the wide range of artists who’ve had it on their boards—from legendary rock ‘n’ rollers such as Joe Perry and the Edge to jazz maestros such as Al Di Meola to heavy riffers such as Matt Pike and modern fretboard wizards such as Tosin Abasi. This pedal has become the go-to standard for any player who wants a well-rounded, easy-to-use delay that sounds incredible.

We’re celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Carbon Copy Analog Delay with this special edition featuring a lightweight aluminum housing with a metallic silver finish. And of course, it’s got all the same Carbon Copy goodness that made it famous. Use the Delay and Regen controls to dial in the time between repeats—up to 600ms—and how many repeats you want, and then use the Mix control to set the wet to dry signal ratio. Add in some modulation with the Mod switch to add wow and flutter a la vintage tape echo units or to simply give your repeats extra richness and depth. Inside the pedal, you’ll find two Width and Rate trimpots so that you can dial in the modulation to your taste.

The Carbon Copy Analog Delay will take you from crisp bathroom slap echoes to epic, voluminous soundscapes with minimal adjustment required.

Features:

  • A celebration of the world’s bestselling analog delay pedal
  • Special limited edition lightweight aluminum housing with metallic silver finish
  • Authentic analog bucket brigade warmth
  • Simple control interface for quick setup
  • Up to 600ms of delay time
  • Mod section for vintage tape echo wow and flutter

This 1964 Vibrolux Reverb arrived in all-original condition, right down to a two-prong power cord and a death cap wired to the ground switch. The author’s well-worn Strat is the perfect companion.

How our columnist’s risky purchase turned out to be a dusty pre-CBS jewel.

This month, I’d like to share the story of my 1964 Fender Vibrolux Reverb. It was a really risky purchase that had some big surprises.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.

Heavy.

If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
