I just stumbled across this deal so of you might be interested. It’s for the Behringer VM1 Vintage Time Machine analog delay/echo/chorus. It’s a lot of pedal for the price. It’s currently on sale/available for $73.46 at Amazon.
Here is the official description of the Behringer VM1 Vintage Time Machine:

Dial in the sounds of the 1970s with this fantastic piece of gear and let your sounds travel comfortably back in time, leaving the struggle with nasty tape loops and worn-out mechanical gear behind you. A status LED for effect On/Off is included, plus there is a true hard-wire bypass for ultimate signal integrity.Travel back in time and get carried away by vintage analog effects!

Really curious how it sounds compared to a EH DMM, since its obviously copying that. 🙂Reply

The sound quality is just not there. Part of this could be the chip set. The Memory Man is so expensive because it uses two chips that cost about $75 each. (And the Deluxe Memory Man with Tap Tempo costs that much more partly because it’s got four chips). Given the price of this thing – and that they’re not bragging about the chip set – there’s no way they’re using the same chips as the memory man. (If they were using the MN30XX chips, they would be bragging about it – but those chips are really tough to get anymore.)
However, some people like AnalogMan do mods on Memory Mans, so it’s possible that you could use this as a cheap base product, swap out the chip set, and get it tuned. You could end up with a better product than the memory man for roughly the same price, in an enclosure that’s less likely to get stolen.Reply
