Really excited about this....
Hope it'll end the search for a bit...
a big-ass pedal that sounds great.
What were you searching for in a delay?
Def that warm analog sound with decaying repeats. Tried all the Strymon stuff - sounds good but just a bit too complex live for me...
Loved the Malekko Lo Fi, but no tap tempo, and a v limited range of sounds. TC Electronic flashback was very good i thought; especially the analogue setting. Cheap. Took up no board space... BUT... seemed to get lost in the mix live, and the strum-tempo thingy was hit and miss i felt.
Providence Chrono - very clean but lacking analogue etc etc etc
Never happy are we ???? What's your thoughts ?
i hope you get a Memory Lane 2!
seriously, Diamond's delay pedals are great ... enjoy!
oh, its coming - i've just paid the customs duty here in England ! GRRRR !!!!!
Just a bit concerned at some of the 'clicking' that appears in some youtube demos...
mmmm Memory Lane 2 goodness. I traded away mine a few years ago.... I miss it, but it just took up too much pedal space to use it live.
expect it to mimic whatever u play on your guitar.
Another perpetual problem we have !! board space...
I've got Fulltone Supa Trem, Barber 1/2 gainer... and now the DML2...
Gonna need a wooden door to mount all of these me thinks...
That'll do for me !!
ah, that 'clicking' thing again. you would only get when you go to extreme settings though. I have the ML1 and I never had a problem with the 'clicking' before. granted, i normally use it only between 2-4 repeats.
towards the end of this clip, you can hear the ML1's very unique character, imho
thanks mate for that...
I'm like you - i use low repeats. Neve understood the oscillation and space ship sound...
Never had a need for it
Memory Lane 2 is the best delay I've ever used for sure!
If you're looking for true analog, it's among the most beautiful, versatile, and highly engineered options out there.
I fell in love with mine within minutes of using it, and I love it more and more as time goes on.
Please report back with your own gushing reviews!
Thats encouraging and "love" is what im hoping for !!
Gushing review to follow...
I've had an ML 1 for about 4 years now. Diamond delays are the pinnacle of analog delays. If you are looking for nice warm repeats with that cool ambient tone this is the deal. If you want six second delays and weird stuff, I would look elsewhere
Then you're good to go! That clicking's a result of diming the regeneration control & setting the tone knob all the way to the bass boost side; the repeats ultimately degenerate into a sound that's remarkabley similar to a percussionist's wood block
With the tone control at noon, or set into the treble side, the oscillation's much closer sounding to what you'd expect from a conventional analog delay
I actually prefer the *spaceship* sounds from my old ElectroHarmonix Deluxe Memory Man, but for almost everything else, it's Memory Lane, all the way. Lower noise floor than the DMM, too
Congrats & Enjoy!!
