The Reverse Delay is...:drool. I like some of the Mod stuff as well, good Reverb emulations.

IMHO, I've been through both, and for me I thought the SMMWH was just too sterile sounding. It's alot of pedal to work with in a small enclosure, which can be fun, but unless you really use all the features, I'd go with the MXR. I've had my CC for about 3-4 weeks now, and if you tweek the modulation in it, you can get some of the most beautiful delays I've heard. For the money, I don't think you can go wrong with it. As for the boutique factor... F' it... if you like it that's really what matters anyway, right?

Thanks for the feedback. It ripps balls off my Boss DD-5. Did I mention it was only $144.99?

They are both great pedals IMO, hard to choose between the two. The Carbon Copy is so amazing sounding, and the SMMH does so many things. If you need all the extra stuff like the looper that the SMMH offers, then stick with that. If all you're after is a great sounding simple 3 knob delay, then you can't go wrong with the Carbon Copy.

It's a great pedal. It was also on sale in GC this weekend. Hopefully they get the new XO DMM and Tone Wicker Big Muff in the stores soon since there aren't any local stores in my area...as much as I hate GC, it's a better option than the local stores for gear.

All the people that I know who have one love them. I think they sound incredible, it's just a matter of how many options you need in a delay pedal. The carbon copy is a great pedal too, but it can't do what the memory man does. Two completely different pedals.

I like mine. I must admit that I really haven't spent much time "playing" with it. I've only spent time dialing in a delay. I really need to sit there and figure out the other things I can with it.

Hmm...I don't care for the SMMH at all.

To me the delays were very bland and just blah sounding. Someone mentioned sterile and I would definitely have to agree. I also didn't like what it did to my tone.

The features didn't sell me on the pedal either. I'm a big fan of modulation and I simply didn't care for it on this one.

Well for me it's a keeper for the moment. Sounds great to my ear. Not an analog delay and if i was after an analog delay it's not the pedal i would buy. But for all the features like stereo output, the preset you can store, the modulation and also the looper wich unlike some i really like and do use, it's a great pedal.

My experience as well - if you take your time dialing in the presets, you can get some very nice delay and reverb sounds. The looper is quite useful if you set up the knobs correctly for that purpose, and the reverse delay is very cool.

Analog sounding it is not, however, so keep that in mind. Personally I think running something like an MXR into the SMMH is really the way to go - some tunes/sonic scapes really need the analog sound, and some sound better with the more "separate" sounding digital stuff. Additionally, it is very useful to have another delay in front of this (or any looper) when looping. Much easier to have a musical "play-through" sound when overlaying on the recorded loop.

Just my .02

+1

I'm running Line 6 DL4 > EHX SMMH > Boss RC-2. The SMMH gets used for a very subtle delay/reverb effect, a flanger sound I found in the 300ms+mod section, and some occasional short loops.

I love my SMMH, but my plan is to get a CC to run in front of it, best of both worlds. FWIW with the tone control on the repeats and the reverb control in the echo settings I think you can get some very warm delay sounds, set it up in stereo with the ping pong and it is very very cool. I also really dig the moduladed delay, in all a great pedal.
