The Deluxe version of the MXR Carbon Copy needs more space on the pedalboard than its ancestor. Thus, it is a less pedalboard-friendly analog delay.
But it provides a doubled delay time and the fine-tuning of the “bright” setting works very well. Therefore, the bright setting of the up to 1.2ms maximum delay time sounds so much better than the delays of the Carbon Copy Bright.
Like its predecessors, the Carbon Copy Deluxe offers modulation and true bypass.
Furthermore, the 9V cutie has tap tempo, and input for an expression pedal and presets.
It only lacks midi as well.
Fortunately, this mono pedal is still in production and therefore available without any problems.
On my cult-factor-scale the MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe gets definitively 9 of 10 points.
