Last month, when there was another MXR Carbon Copy sale, I finally purchased one for myself. I’ve recommended this pedal for years, and know various guitarists that use this pedal. Over the years, I’ve seen MANY of these on Pedal Line Friday submissions. I’ve mentioned this in the past, but I get irritated with delays that are too complicated or have too many factors to set the delay sounds I’m going for. I’m a big fan of easy settings that can be manipulated on the fly, and I’ve been messing around with various analog type (not necessarily an analog circuit) over the last few years. I’ve had some great delays on my board (T-Rex Replica, Red Witch Titan, Empress Super Delay, etc). They all sounded amazing and I would highly recommend those, but I wanted something simple (with a smaller footprint) and I thought I would finally pick up a MXR M169 Carbon Copy for myself.
Frankly, this delay is exactly what I’m looking for. Simple controls – Regen (similar to feedback), Mix and Delay. There is also a modulation button, but as of now, I’m not a fan of that (BUT, I know there are trim pots to adjust this, and I should play around with this). The modulation (stock) is little more pronounced that I would like, so adjusting depth via internal trim should help with that.
OK.. enough about me. Let’s talk about this deal. The MXR M169 Carbon Copy Delay lists for $254.61. You can usually get this pedal for $150, but it’s currently on sale for only $103.67 at Amazon.com!!!! That’s $46 off.. great right?? This pedal also ships for free.
Here is the official product video for the MXR Carbon Copy:
Again, the MXR M169 Carbon Copy Delay is on sale for only $103.67 at Amazon.com. At the time of this posting there were 14 units in stock. Sometimes, with the stock count goes down, the price jumps up, so if that deal is available, and you’re interested.. I would jump on it.
