    I can't stop going through delays. In the past year I've had:

    Digitech Digidelay
    Boss Space Echo
    Diamond Memory Lane
    MXR Carbon Copy
    Boss DD-3
    TC Nova Delay
    EHX Deluxe Memory Man

    - and I have a Wampler AnalogEcho on the way.

    I still have the DigiDelay and the DMM. For me, the best tone comes from the DMM, with the DML a *very* close second. Both of these pedals are amazing.

    I also really liked the CC. Great pedal for the money, IMO.

    Hated the Space Echo. Way too noisy.

    I agree. I had a DML-20 III that produced some of the craziest modulated delays I've ever heard. I still regret selling that one. I should try and track down another. As much as I love the modulated delay on the DMM, the DML could do things the DMM can't even begin to dream of!

    Crazy modulation! I'll get back to you with a review when it gets here.

    I also am really liking my ND. It's even got me bothering to learn some U2.

    I agree with the two killer features. I now couldn't live without the strum-tempo or the BPM readout. I wished it had an expression pedal input, but for "bang for the buck", it was hard to beat (<$200 after-tax dollars used, or about the same as a new CC).

    I also kinda wished it had a looper, but that wasn't such a big deal as I'll (probably?) never use a looper at a gig - more just screwing around at home. So it was hard to justify the extra money to get a delay that sounded as good as the ND and have a looper funtion. I'll pick up a cheap looper somewhere since, considering its lot in life I won't care nearly as much about how good it will sound.

    the memory boy is going to fall right between the carbon copy and the DMM as far as quality of the repeats go. not as crisp as the DMM but not as grainy as the carbon on long settings. the memory boy is much harder to dial in than either of the others though and has a few *quirks*.

    right now i have all three hooked up. the DMM is staying forever. it could go either way with the MB and CC though.

    At least it's smaller than the DMM.:smile: The modulation sounds crazy (in a good way) in the demos I've heard.

    yeah, i recorded a cool little loop thing using the square wave modulation at wacky settings the other day. but you sort of have to go subtle or crazy, there's no in between.
