I’ve been a fan of the Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man for a quite a while. This is a fantastic sounding analog delay with a plenty of character. Works extremely well for rhythm and lead work. Controls are broken down to the following – blend, level, feedback, chorus/vibrato, depth and delay. One of the features that I personally like with this pedal is the ability to overdrive the delay. There is an ‘overload’ clip LED indicator, but jacking the level to a desired amount, you get some tasty grit right out of the pedal.
A couple of days ago, I came across a very nice demo of the EHX Deluxe Memory Man by shnobel and wanted to share it to the masses. Nice sounding demo with his Fender Strat into a Vox AC30. He also adds some drive with a Pete Cornish SS3.
The Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man XO Analog Delay is available for $314.40 at Amazon. It’s a steep price, but when you get to this level of delay you get in the top of the pack of delays with the $300-$500 range. Personally, when you hit this zone, you walk away satisfied and understand the importance of a great sounding delay.
