Experience The Warmth Of Analog Delay, Chorus and Vibrato

Nothing can compare to the organic sound of analog delay, and no one does analog like the electro-harmonix Memory Man! The Electro-Harmonix Deluxe memory Man provides up to 550ms of vibrant echo that rivals tape delay. Lush, spatial chorus and haunting vibrato are just a few of the treats in the Memory Man's sonic schmorgasbord! Analog warmth that renders digital delay obsolete - the Deluxe Memory Man echo with chorus/vibrato!

Electro-Harmonix XO Series Deluxe Memory Man at a Glance:
  • Easy operation and direct out jack
  • Vary the signal mix with Blend control
  • Create pitch-shift effects by changing delay rate
  • Chorus/vibrato control

Easy operation and direct out jack
The bypass footswitch on top of the Deluxe Memory Man allows you to switch the effect in and out. Unmodified signal is always available at the direct out jack. The Deluxe memory Man features a level control with an overload led that blinks on with the loudest notes you play in order to prevent overdriving the Deluxe Memory Man. Overdriving the Memory Man will cause distortion.

Vary the signal mix with Blend control
The Memory Man's blend control allows you to vary the mix of direct and delayed signals. The center position provides equal levels of both. Feedback provides delay repeats, or multiple echoes. Fairly high feedback with short delay settings produces a reverb effect.

Create pitch-shift effects by changing delay rate
The Memory Man's delay control determines the time between direct and delayed signals, and between the repeats when feedback is used. Strange, eerie and unusual pitch-shift effects can be produced by changing the delay while playing, especially while using feedback.

Chorus/vibrato control
The chorus/vibrato control of the Deluxe Memory Man introduces a modulation in the delay time: slow for chorus, faster for vibrato. This produces a "doppler" pitch shifting in the delayed signal. A rich, vibrant chorus effect is produced with the switch set to chorus, delay fairly short, blend at the center, chorus set high, and feedback fairly high.

Electro-Harmonix XO Series Deluxe Memory Man Features:
  • Die-case XO Series Chassis
  • 550ms of echo, chorus, and vibrato
  • Overload LED
  • Level control and Overload LED
  • Blend, delay, and Chorus/Vibrato controls
  • True bypass operation
  • Bypass footswitch

From the legendary riffs of Jimi Hendrix and George Clinton to the new-school licks of Slipknot and Korn, musicians have relied on Electro-Harmonix since the late '60s. Whether you crave the sustaining overdrive of the Big Muff Pi or the warm spring reverb of the hot new Holy Grail, Electro-Harmonix has a stompbox with your name on it.

This box is a class act! Lovin' it every time I use it. :)

The delay pedal standard

This pedal ended my delay search and it took me years to finally get my hands on one of these. There's a reason so many players still use it, and hold on to theirs too. When I first brought mine home and plugged it into my rig, it instantly became my favorite pedal I own. The modulation is where it's at. Only gripe would be the 24v, but with the right power supply its worth the hassle. Tap tempo is a useful and missed feature, but I'm an old school player, who uses my ears for reference. Definitely the best analog, if not the best sending delay pedal out there!

Warmest Delay Ever!

I have owned several Ibanez digital delay pedals, I could never get the warm sound I was looking for. I had one moded and it still sounded bad to me. I tried an MXR Carbon Copy and found it to be wanting. Along the way I have had several other delay pedals none of which did the trick. I guess I just didn't want to shell out the money for the Memory Man Deluxe, but I wish I would have a long time ago. It is hands down the best sounding delay pedal I have ever heard. Buy it and your delay pedal search will be over..

The best! My favorite pedal delay!

I originally bought this for my bass pedal board and although I use it mainly for that, I use it on organ, vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin, everything. I have played around with Line6 DL6 pedals, Boss delay pedals, etc. And alot of them sound really good, but this pedal, is different. I recently lent this pedal to a friend who had a Boss DD-20(so a really good digital delay pedal). Within five minutes he preferred the sound of the memory man. It's funny because every time I use it I get the sound I want, but when I use other pedals now(esp. digital), they sound fake compared to it. The delay breaks naturally on its own, it's warm and lush, it handles low end incredibly well(bass guitar, organ). I just find this to be an excellent delay pedal. The modulation is really nice too, it only modulates the delay so you can make it sound more like a tape delay, or really strain the pitch to make it sound weird. You also can create your own fantastic feedback (past 3 oclock) and it just sounds great. I wish they cost less, but they are incredible pedals.
