MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay: The Essence of Vintage Echo

Dive into the world of analog warmth with the MXR M169 Carbon Copy Analog Delay, revered for its classic bucket brigade sound. This compact and user-friendly pedal is the perfect tool for musicians who crave a rich, natural echo without compromising the integrity of their original signal. Whether you're crafting atmospheric layers or adding texture to your solos, the Carbon Copy delivers versatile and exceptional delay effects.

Classic Analog Tone with Modern Control

The MXR Carbon Copy offers up to 600 milliseconds of delay time, providing a broad spectrum of echo possibilities from quick slapback to extensive ambient washes. The all-analog signal path is meticulously designed using classic bucket brigade technology, ensuring every repeat of your play is warm and musically responsive. The three external knobs—Mix, Regen, and Delay—allow you to finely tune the level, regeneration, and duration of the echo, while a dedicated Modulation button offers the option to imbue your trails with a beautifully lush, warbling effect.

Customizable Modulation for Unique Sounds

Beyond the straightforward external controls, the Carbon Copy features internal trim pots that adjust the Width and Depth of the modulation effects. These hidden controls let you personalize the character of the modulated delay, from subtle thickening to intense, swirling textures, making it a versatile choice for live performance and studio work alike.

True Bypass and Professional Build Quality

The pedal employs True Bypass switching, ensuring that it has no effect on your tone when disengaged. Your dry signal remains pristine and unaffected, making the Carbon Copy a reliable choice for professionals who need their effects to enhance, not alter, their natural sound. Constructed with the durability MXR is known for, this pedal stands up to the demands of touring, all while maintaining a pedalboard-friendly footprint.
