Beautiful analog delay

Dionisis, 29.11.2017
What can I say about this wonderful little green gem that hasn't been said before? Amazingly beautiful sounds, from quirky slapback to dreamlike delay soundscapes, organic feeling that doesn't alter the core of your sound and on top of that a mod button that gets you even further.
I was amazed by how naturally this pedals sits in the mix with a full band and also how it plays well with other pedals. I often use it for slapback delay with the Malekko trem and the Boss FRV-1 reverb in my surf/rockabilly band for both riffing and soloing and I always get praised for my sound and other times I use it with my psychedellic rock band and mix it with some vibe or wah or fuzz, it always delivers....
Another thing, the oscillation you can get out of this pedal is absolutely wonderful! I've experienced musically heavenly intros and outros just by using it as an oscillation machine!
The quality is great, I bought mine years ago from thomann, have used at home, in studio and live and so far absolutely zero problems and not even a nick on its wonderful colour!
Above all this pedal has character. It's one of those pedals that are destined to become classics one day. It's a permanent addition to any of my pedalboards and expect it to be for years to come.

True analog sound. Naturally and organic. I adore it.

Hey fellow guitar players,

This review will be about the MXR Carbon Copy and will represent my experience and subjective opinion about this wonderful delay pedal.

First things first: The Carbon Copy is far beyond what I imagined it would be like to work with. (FYI this was my first real delay pedal ever. Thus far, I had only digital substitutes.)
My overall impression is really positive. From sound, to handling, to quality and to feeling it is one thing: A pedal with an unique character. Just from the first time I plugged it in and until now after a recent concert I did with it, it never ceased to amaze me. I have it for about 2 months now.

Well, I didn't grew up in the late 60s or 70s, but I'm feeling like this is the real deal. It gives me the charming pleasure of warm, wobbling, floating delay sounds with decreasing volume to the end of the delay time. With the "mod" button engaged the soundshape dives into a marvelous chorus/vibrato like mood, which I have on nearly everytime.
In the mix, with other pedals such as reverb or a Volume/Wah turned on, the Carbon Copy stays brilliant and the character of its sound is organically noticable.
It also has pretty sick self-oscillation going on, which always amazes me and never gets out of control!

It has nothing less or more than needed for a creative use I would say. You can get familiar with its possibilities really quick and theres nothing bad to say about it. Everything works great.

Beautiful (spacy green color is soooo fancy), Solid, Heavy. No reason to not love it.

In conclusion, I can only say one thing: I fell in love with it. Give it a shot if you adore analoge sounds and an organic feeling. You will love it.
The price is a bit higher than other brand's delay pedals, but it is reasonable and it is totally worth it!

Enjoy music.
