Okay a little disclosure first..I met the MP guys at namm and played the pedals and got to know them...Dont want anyone to think this is a sales pitch or anything I just happen to know these guys now. Anyway I never used a delay and never liked their sound on me. I found most to be to difficult to manipulate through the show and didnt feel like my phrasing or playing style was complemented by one. So I try the dbd at namm and found it pleasing to the ear but wasnt sure if I needed one because even though I never used one live I have bought probably 5 over the years trying to make it happen for me. All I can say is that the mp is the delay for dummies..I know there have been alot of people review the sound and specifics but my goal here is to say that I took it out of its box and played with for about 20 minutes and now its attached to my board for good. I cant believe how easy it is to control and I like the small footprint as well. I wont go over the same stuff that has been covered but it does quite a bit and I really like it. So for you guys who never really tried one or dont like complicated stuff I think you might dig this pedal.
