My favorite analog delay pedals

Many times, I have been asked about my favorite delay pedals and I must confess, that this question is soo hard to answer to.
Nevertheless, after a long time of thinking and trying, I figured out groups of my favorite delays regarding the categories analog delays, digital delays and tape emulations.
The order of the delays within the respective group or video is no ranking for I am unable to tell which of them I like best. Thus, the presentation is according to the alphabetical order of their names.
This second part is dedicated to my favorite analog delay pedals. Continue reading “My favorite analog delay pedals”

Boss DD-8 vs. DOD Rubberneck

This is a comparison of the Boss DD-8 with the DOD Rubberneck.

Furthermore, you will get slapback sounds, run-away feedback and oscillation.

MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe or Eventide Rose?

Ask the DudeA reader’s question to the Dude:

“I have a question about two delay pedals, one of which I own and another I do not, but am interested in. You have demoed both on your channel, just never head to head.
The pedal I currently run on my board is a MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe. I love the pedal. I am running a professional tele through it into a Deluxe Reverb, and I love how it stays warm and doesn’t color my tone the way a lot of the digital delays seem to.
For some reason though, I am constantly looking at other delays thinking, “Ohhh, that will be the one I should replace the MXR with.” I am not looking to replace it, but, I don’t know why I keep looking at other ones.
This brings me to the other pedal, the Eventide Rose.
Seems awesome, and has that feeling of the MXR, but I cannot find any direct comparison videos of both.
I was hoping you could just tell me what you think about the two of them in comparison. Continue reading “MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe or Eventide Rose?”
