There's nothing worse than spelling and grammar mistakes in thread titles.

Nothing does slapback like a lush analog delay. I love my Diamond Memory Lane!

Another satisfied Memory Lane user here. I have the original. I want the new one. Trouble is it's as much money as a 500-series mic pre. Alas.

all i can say is.....say "hey!" for e-bay!

i can confidently say the "2" is a step up from "1"....which i also used for the past couple years.

I've heard alot of people saying they prefer the version 1 over version 2 in terms of sonics. Doesn't really matter for me since I won't be getting rid of my (awesome custom shop green) memory lane 1. But an interesting point nonetheless.

Also, Diamond is in Atlantic Canada. Gotta represent the atlantic canada!

really? maybe i will go back and do some a/b tests between the two while i still have the "1".

i will say tho....the "2" is quieter...no doubt about that.

as far as the actual SOUND of the repeats....they sure seem pretty similar so far....and the expanded capabilities of the "2" (which are quite numerous) are so fun.

Danelectro Dan Echo. You can find these things for around
$40 used and they sound great. Definitely my go to pedal
for analog delays from slapbacks to longer.

two things about the memory lane (both 1 and 2).

it is expensive so if you JUST want a little slap back i think it IS overkill....it can do slapback and so much more. i use the MM2 with an expression pedal AND the diamond st mix pedal for stereo applications and more....at that point there is a heck of a lot more going on than just slap back.

if you want to go really nuts and really shape and mutate the analog delays this is the best pedal around....modulation depth and speed, eq, two delay times (on the 2), dedicated slap back mode....you can really do some nutty stuff...a huge range of sounds and textures if you really dig in a work the pedal.

if you just want a nice analog slapback effect....you can do it for 1/3rd the price. a used mxr "carbon copy" might be a very economical solution.

Agreed, the Delayla just does something fantastic in the 'slapback' mode... I don't love the sound of it's long delays... but it does slapback as well.

I currently have a memory lane and primarily use it for 'slapback' type sounds...
it's fantastic.

I'd place a second vote for some kind of tape echo...
the nice part of the memory lane is that it sounds a bit like a tape echo without the worry of actual 'tape'...

the nice part of the memory lane is that it sounds a bit like a tape echo without the worry of actual 'tape'...
the real advantage of the memory lane over a tape echo is that
1)it is a bit cheaper (tho far from cheap)
2)it is much smaller and easier to use with a pedal board
3)it will not break/wear out like a tape echo
4)you can manipulate more variables (eq, etc etc) some with an expression pedal while you keep playing the guitar. i get all these insane noises out of my MM2 that you simply cannot do on a tape echo....and certainly cannot get them "hands free"...so that makes the ML2 way way more practical and fun for making live music with.

however the EXACT sound of a tape echo cannot be gotten without an actual tape echo....so if you HAVE to have the exact echoplex sound....you need an echoplex....even tho both tape echo and ML produce a yummy warm organic analog vibe.

You'd be doing yourself a dis-service if you didn't check out the MXR Carbon Copy delay pedal.

ABSOLUTELY KICKS ASS, I've owned every sorta delay pedal ever, and this thing just takes the cake....ake....ke.....ke.....

This is my next pedal! Then I'll shelf my DD-3. I just have to wait til lent's over. I gave up buying gear for lent (somewhat of a joke, I'm not a hard core catholic) and it's been tough not buying anything!

I was gonna say... the Fulltone Tube Tape Echo, while not really a stomp box, is just amazing sounding. I use it not only on guitar, but on all kinds of tracks when mixing. Remember to lay it on its side to make it quieter.

glad to hear you got to try one Randall, they are sweet!
i have not tried Carl Martin Chorus XII, but everything they have sent me to check out have been top notch.

i have one very minor complaint, but not a deal breaker, i will mention it in a upcoming review.
P.M. if like Randall, and i will share it with you, very miner more of a picky me deal.

Vintage (not later re-issue of Maxon) Ibanez AD-80 is analogue slapback monster and has the most of vintage 3D vibe.
Much harder to find than very good alternative Boss DM2.
Between two my preference clearly go to AD-80.
