    Can anyone post some history on the Deluxe Memory Man? Maybe stuff like the different versions throughout the years, and then the characteristics of each one? I'm trying to learn more about these pedals and didn't have much luck with google. Also if there are any sites with more info, links would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I guess to be more specific I'm looking at a 1980 Deluxe Memory Man. What is the overall opinion on these? Do people seem to like them? Anything else I should know? And then also, what would be a fair price for one? Thnaks.

    I love my 90ies one and it's definitely the best I've tried. My advice? Shoot and miss until you get one right - that's the way it goes with the DMM. If you're lucky, you'll be satisfied with the first you'll find. Some are better, some are a little less nice as the best ones - but some won't even notice the difference.

    a 1980 with 5 knobs should be awesome, I have info about the various reissue DMM models on my FAQ.

    Thanks for posting Howard (and Mike for the endorsement). I'll be sure to send my DMM your way if I ever have any issues. I freaking love this pedal :)

    Any thoughts about what a fair price would be for a 1980 Deluxe Memory Man?
