So recently you have be reissuing vintage pedals in nano format. What about giving the memory man that treatment?

For years now the MXR Carbon Copy has been the default option for analog delay in a standard size enclosure. The memory toy is a great pedal but it has not been able to compete with the carbon copy.

Xvive have provided a cheaper alternative MN3005 chip - we know it’s doable because chase bliss use them in the tonal recall.

IMHO a memory man nano would be a great seller, sure the market for entry level delay pedals is hugely competitive but a pedal with the memory man pedigree would stand out amongst the crowd.

Time to knock the carbon copy off its perch. Memory Man Mano its a winner!

I’d really like to see some stats on that. Most of the direct shootouts I’ve read between the Memory Toy and the Carbon Copy give the Memory Toy the edge even though it has 1/20th sec. less max delay than the Carbon Copy. Most people consider the Carbon Copy too dark. So much so that they came out with a Carbon Copy Bright.

I have a Memory Toy and a Canyon Delay, and I end up using the Memory Toy more. It’s warmer analog delay fades into the background faster and doesn’t force me to stick to the timing of the delays so rigidly. The Canyon has a Memory Man simulation on it which is OK, but it’s not as warm as the true analog Memory Toy. I can definitely hear a difference.

Carbon copy is 5th best selling delay pedal on thomann and 3rd fastest selling pedal on a k reverb - maybe just a European thing?
