Analog pedal with time-tested tone and flexible settings in an amazingly compact package.

The MXR Carbon Copy analog delay harnesses retro technology for lush, full-bodied echo tones unlike anything digital. MXR's pioneering bucket-brigade circuitry offers up to 600 milliseconds of delay time with optional modulation—all conjured by intuitive Delay, Mix, and Regen knobs in a compact package. Musicians yearning for the warmth and character of analog will find their muse in the Carbon Copy's crisp slap backs, cavernous canyons of echo, and seasick pitch modulation.

Bucket Brigade Circuitry Delivers Rich, Organic Echo
At the heart of the Carbon Copy dwells a bucket brigade device with old-school analog components that recreate the coveted tones of yesteryear's tape echoes. Each repeat pours forth with a depth and dimension that captures every nuance, from the initial attack to the decaying sustain. With delay times reaching 600ms, this analog anachronism proves more than adept at crafting cavernous canyons of echo and runaway oscillations.

Modulation Takes Echo into Uncharted Territory
For added animation, a top-mounted switch engauges pitch modulation that warps each successive repeat. Two trim pots hidden within the case, allow adjustment of modulation width and rate for fine tuning the effect. From barely perceptible chorus to full-on warble, the modulation opens up a range of trippy time-based effects not found in the digital domain.

Intuitive Controls Provide Instant Gratification
With only three knobs, the Carbon Copy puts echo at your fingertips. The Delay knob spans times from slap back to cavernous, while the Mix knob blends in the delayed signal. The Regen knob regulates the number of repeats from a single slap to runaway oscillation. For plug-and-play ease, the Carbon Copy remembers your settings even after being powered down.

Roadworthy and Studio-Friendly
Despite its retro roots, the Carbon Copy proves a thoroughly modern pedal. It survives the rigors of the road thanks to a durable aluminum chassis and 9V battery or adapter operation. True bypass switching delivers a clear signal path in bypass mode for studio use. No matter the application, the Carbon Copy delivers lush, organic echo with an ease and style not found in the digital realm.
