MXR Carbon Copy

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.

Carl Martin PlexiTone

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.

DOD Carcosa Fuzz

The DOD Carcosa Fuzz is a doorway into an alternate fuzz universe, where classic tones of legend coexist with splattered and shattered Pollock abstractions. Combining the Carcosa’s wide-ranging AFTER bias control with two toggle positions creates tones that range from porcine fatness to dessicated shards. This versatility makes the Carcosa Fuzz a good companion for dirty or clean amps. True bypass, tons of output, and the visage of the King in Yellow sets the stage for fuzzy madness.

The DOD Carcosa Fuzz has an exaggerated mid-range and treble character that help it stand out in a mix. It has been designed to cut through a dense and heavy band but still have great note articulation with chords. However, when extreme bias (AFTER) ranges are selected many wild and over-the-top sounds are possible

BEFORE – Increases/Decreases the amount of fuzz.

OUTPUT – Increases/Decreases the overall output level, there is a lot of level here so this can be used as a boost.

AFTER – Bias Control changes the texture of the fuzz. Counter-clockwise attains loud and woody fuzz tones that clean up with the guitar volume knob, and full clockwise attains splatty and broken fuzz tones and horn-like vowel sounds and sustain. Middle-ranges go from familiar classic to more modern wall-of-sound fuzz voicings.

HI-CUT – Reduces the amount of high-frequency detail. Start at the 9:00 position and adjust counter-clockwise for brighter pickups, and clockwise for darker pickups. Don’t be afraid to use the extreme ranges of this control since changes to the AFTER bias control also change the tone of the fuzz. You may find higher volume boost settings or stage levels will also require high-frequency adjustment.

DEMHE/HALI – Use the DEMHE voicing (Up Toggle Position) for a bass and low-mid boost which works great for clean channel usage. Use the HALI voicing (Down Toggle Position) for a bass cut that works great for dirty channel usage.
