The MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay goes from crisp «bathroom» slap echoes to epic, Gilmouresque delays.
Featuring 600ms of delay time with optional modulation, and a three-knob layout that controls Delay, Mix, and Regen. In addition, there are two internal trim pots that offer user-adjustable width and rate control of the modulation for even more tonal options.
All done by a completely analog audio path for authentic rich, warm analog delay—made possible only by old-school analog bucket brigade technology.
The new single channel Carl Martin PlexiTone was designed in association with Pete Thorn, and is housed in a small pedal-board friendly housing with 3 knobs and 1 switch. Apart from Pete’s slight modifications that give this new pedal a tighter bottom-end and slightly softer high frequencies, it is exactly the same gain structure as the High Gain setting on the original Pro-Series PlexiTone….it just plays better with different amps.
The single Plexi also incorporates our new DC-DC converter circuitry, so the pedal can be powered by a regulated 9V Power Supply but will still operate on the same +-12V level as the original AC powered PlexiTone. This allows us to use the same high quality components which provide the same tone and headroom that make the CM Pro-Series stand out from the rest!
The Level knob adjusts the overall level of the Plexi- Tone. By adjusting this knob (in conjunction with the gain) you can match or exceed the bypass signal for rhythm or solo work.
The Drive knob adjusts the amount of overdrive, from light crunch; at full counter-clockwise, to full, fat overdrive with loads of sustain at full clockwise…. and everything in between. Regardless of the amount of overdrive, the PlexiTone always produces those great Brittish tones that seem to cut right through the mix in both live and recording sessions.
The Tone knob on the PlexiTone, is a high cut filter. With the knob set at full clockwise, you enjoy the full bandwidth of frequencies, so as you turn the knob counter clockwise, you start to filter out the high frequencies. This allows you to fine tune your tone regardless of which guitar/pickup you are using. You might find at high gain settings that reducing the highs will tighten up the sound, and at lower gain settings, the high frequencies will add some bite and crispness to your notes.
