who here has tried both, which one do you guys like better, why?
For $50 more, I'de seriously look into Wampler's Analog Echo.
I was going to bump this for more thoughts on the first two, but Brian's new A/E has my interest too!
I'ver heard a lot of great things about both of these pedals here, and have toyed with getting one or the other. I can't believe that no one has compared the two.
I can't completely help because I never got my hand on an MXR CC. However, the reason for that was because I liked the Deeeelay so much I stopped looking for a pedal-sized delay. YMMV, but for me it was perfect and for a good price, but this was before the CC was released. I had no reason to check it out. Next stop, TTEville!
Love my deelay, best leave on and not notice delay out there, reminds me a lot of the replica, the repeats are there, but never overtake your sound. I'm thinking about a CC though, for a touch of modulated delay. The deelay doesn't have that grundgy repeat of an analog delay, the repeats are dark, but not distorted or fuzzy sounding, if that makes sense. I never liked how analog delays tended to add a lot of mids to your tone, and the deelay does not do this.
If you sign up for the newsletter the "members" price for the Analog Echo is $139. Which makes it an even better alternative.
I brought a Deeelay a week ago..., was looking for a nice transparent delay to put in front of my /13, so as I don't want to expend a lot of money in a delay, just for if it don't work well in front of my amp, I decided to try the CMATMODS Deeelay...
All I can say is that it sounds superb..., so nice that I brought another one with a custom finish 4 days later..., I don't care about the MXR, which was another alternative since I try the Deeelay...
All second hand hearsay, but the CMATMODS seems to get nothing but rave reviews whereas I've heard a few complaints about the MXR and they seem to be for sale second hand everywhere (not a good sign).
I jammed with my teacher yesterday and he had the deeelay which sounded really great. To me it is a close combination of analog and tape sound. I havent tried the CC either as I got the Nova Delay and am very happy with it. Once you have tap tempo I think it would be hard to go back.
There are more opinions (negative/positive) and resales for the CC mainly because they're mass produced and there are way more of them out there. It's an awesome pedal that I'm more than happy to use when I don't feel like bringing my TTE along, and can hold it's own with many of the higher priced boutique options.
Maybe I'm mistaken, but I think the Deelay is not an analog unit.
+1 for the Deelay here
i've owned both, sold both, but prefered the Deelay. Both are decent delays for the $$$ but neither could compete with the memory lane for what i needed
The original signal stays analog into the blend.
So it's more of a 'hybrid' in my mind.
Love my delay! It's my secret weapon for that time when ya think "something is missing here" or "I need a bit of pizzazz".
I bought a CMATMODS Deeelay last week and received it yesterday. I didn't have the time to try it out extensively yet, but the little time I spent with it already made me go like ... 'wow'..... A fantastic warm delay!
Love my Deeelay!
If you don't need a complicated delay pedal with lots of buttons and such.. the cmatmods deeelay is a great way to go.
Of course i've heard lots of good things about the OceanEFX delay and the Wampler Delay also.. lots of good choices out there it seems.
Does the Deeelay self-oscillate
at high repeat rates?
This, for me is the deal breaker.
I freakin' love that "the world is ending" noise!
