I am willing to work with the foibles because it sounds so good. I have other delays with tap tempo, channels/memories, way more time, reverse functions etc. The one I come back to is the DMM.
The story behind me buying one was that I had one delay and one on order and browsing in a music shop, I realised that I had never played a DMM. So I tried one and bought it a minute later. I've sold and bought delays since but the DMM is king. I even like the chorusing and I dont own a chorus because I hate chorus.
How much D-Time is on a stock DMM?
I never looked at one due to the size, but lately, I'm getting curiouser and curiouser.
sadly, this is one inconsistent pedal. either you get a holy grail (no pun intended). . . . or NOT. my DMM is newer, true bypass. . . NO undesirable noise. . . . no headroom issues (i throw fuzz at it daily). . . no negatives at all. my holy grail of delays.
Thanks. Your original post was one of those cases where you were 100% right and I still disagreed with you.
No worries... Some people prefer ketchup, some rather have mustard... It's only an issue if each gets the wrong one-- of course context is everything. Either ketchup or mustard wouldn't be traditionally acceptable on Captain Crunch cereal.
Seasoning to taste is the key, is it not
