    I just watched the Pro Guitar Shop demo of this thing, and it's one of the best analog delays I've ever heard! When I went to the PGS website to get a price, I couldn't believe that it's only $99.00!!

    Anybody tried this thing?

    I picked one of these up at a local store and I really enjoy it. I have a hard time playing without it actually. The sound is clear and articulate without any harshness, and its dead quiet. The MT-AD knocked the other delays I have off my board which is saying something as I only use OD, Tremolo and Delay.

    For $100 you get a very nice delay -can't recommend it enough.

    What were your other delays, and how does it differ from them?

    A buddy of mine just started carrying these in his shop.
    They sound interesting, and the price is right....

    They are not analog.

    Bought one and took it back.

    Here's the website:

    The ModTone MT-AD Delay features an exclusive analog circuitry coupled with a PT-2399 processing chip. This unique Hybrid combination delivers a warm lush sounding delay reminiscent of the solely analog circuits of yesteryear without the unnecessary bulk or excessive price.

    ---

    I read this as a pretty transparent attempt to say it uses digital technology to sound analog. I mean hey, even a Boss DD-7 has some analog components in it too, right?

    In other words, this is an analog delay simulator. But if it does the trick for $99, and does right by your ears, then you are gold!

    Yeah, the web site was recently changed. When I bought the pedal, there was no reference to it being a digital or "analog-voiced" delay. I was a bit shocked when I opened it up and saw the PT-2399 chip in there. I felt totally mislead.

    Well, at least they are now up-front about the non-analog Analog Delay.


    I'm not knocking the pedal. If it works for you, great.

    I bet its the same circuit as the $39.99 Toys R Us (First Act) Special. A great sounding pedal but Analog (as in BBD chips) it isn't

    Are the Modtone pedals True bypass?

    Wow, unique, just like all the other digital delays!

    I'm not commenting on the sound - I haven't heard it. But most digital delays are one digital chip and a lot of analog components. I hate marketing mumbo jumbo.

    ...it's like the Carl Martin Red Repeat which sounds great but aint' analog. There are lots of analog-emulating digital delay's out nowadays.

    Almost bought one, but I can't abide orange pedals. That's why my punch factory is on the emporium (way too orange).

    Wow.. that really made me laugh....

    I actually won one of these last week from the modtone website. It just arrived yesterday and I plan on trying it out over the next few days. Really cool guys at the company it seems. First time I've really ever won any gear.
