The MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay features a completely analog audio path for the ultimate in rich, warm delay—made possible only by old-school bucket brigade technology. This design boasts an amazing 600ms of delay time with optional modulation via a top-mounted switch and a simple, three-knob layout that controls Delay time, Mix (dry/wet blend), and Regen (delay repeats)—all in a pedal no bigger than a Phase 90.

In addition, two internal trim pots offer user-adjustable width and rate control of the modulation for even more tonal options. The Carbon Copy will take you from crisp “bathroom” slap echoes to epic, Gilmour-esque delays with a twist of a knob. True hardwire bypass, single 9-volt operation, and stage-ready blue LEDs round out the package. Available only from Dunlop Manufacturing, the world’s leader in analog pedal technology.

  • Takes you from crisp "bathroom" slap echoes to epic, Gilmour-esque delays.
  • Completely analog audio path is made possible by old-school bucket brigade technology.

Power: Dunlop ECB003 AC Adapter or Single 9 volt battery (not included)

is good





I would buy again.


I should have bought one of these years ago. It is all I want and need in a delay pedal.



Great analog delay!


Love it! Very smooth and dark analog delay tone, and with the mod on with the width up a bit and the speed down a bit (from factory settings) it's got a lovely tape warble to it. It plays very nicely with my heavily distorted bass tone too.



just plain works


Came highly recommended. I was very pleased. Not overly complicated. just plain works.



I would highly recommend this pedal to others.


It has been a great pedal. It sounds amazing, and really enhances the sound of my guitar.

Don't DELAY to pick this up!


The Carbon Copy Delay is easily one of the best and simplest pedals on the market. Its tone is very analog sounding. Very smooth, very accurate, very warm. It's super easy to dial in and change when needed. Plus the "mod" button adds a certain sparkle to the tone when switched on that's just awesome. If you don't need a tap tempo delay, then look no further. This is a staff review from Memphis @ Store 57 in Indianapolis.

Lovely, warm, rich tones.


I did quite a bit of research on delay pedals and opted for the analog MXR Carbon Copy to compliment the warm, natural tone of my tube amp. I have been extremely pleased with my purchase. The sounds are so warm and rich. The modulation effect provides a lovely, full, deep tone that almost sounds a bit chorusy. If you want loads of bells and whistles and modeled effects, the Carbon Copy is not for you, but is you want something simple, with heart and soul that will provide true depth and substance to your tone, by all means, do yourself a favor and pick one of these up.

Easy to use and great sounding


I use it for slap back Rockabilly sounds and it gives a great 50's vibe. When playing spacey rock songs I just use a longer delay setting and let the groove grow, This pedal does a lot more and is quite versatile. I know many other players that are using this same unit and I would recommend it to anyone.
