    I just tried the Carbon Copy and it kicks! But, I think I'm still not ready to get rid of my trusty DM-3!

    There's absolutely no comparison in my opinion. They sound entirely different.

    I wanted to like the Carbon Copy but couldn't. It sounds like a (warm) digital delay to my ears. Waaaay too pristine and clear for my taste. The repeats don't melt into the background like the DM-2/DM-3. Something about the complexity in the way the Boss analogs decay is just THE **** to my ears.

    True, the Boss is warmer sounding and I think offers more "useable" tones. I still need to try them side by side.

    And you can keep the Boss "wetter" and it still stays in the background. The Carbon Copy makes it very apparent ! THERE IS A DELAY ON ! - not unlike a digital.

    I agree it is much better than a digital, but it wasn't my thing. I have a bunch of old BBD analogs, and the Carbon Copy just just doesn't do that. Not that it was bad, just not my thing.

    I sold my Boss DM3 to fund the purchase of a T Rex Replica, I have to say that now I get the best of both worlds although undeniably digital I think it's analog mode has good warmth and excellent for shorter delay settings.
    I'm well pleased with the Replica but in a weird way gutted I sold the DM3.

    wow...i've been around here for a while now and never heard of the T Rex Replica...guess I wasn't looking hard enough.

    That's a really neat delay.

    I have an Ibanez AD-9, which is virtually the same guts as that pedal, and I'd never trade it for another delay. It's a fine pedal!

    My first delay is the AD9. Very cool, a bit darker sounding than a DM-2/3 cool oscillating sounds.
