Coming soon: The Memphis Mini Blues Harmonica Delay Pedal

In this video Nic Clark plays the new Memphis Mini Blues Harmonica Delay with the Memphis Mini amp. it's a warm sounding digital delay pedal built to our specs. The delay tails have a nice organic decay. True bypass, metal housing, very well built. Introductory selling price will be $69 with free shipping in USA.

I shot this video at Ziggies in Denver before the Sunday Blues Jam. The club is kind of dim and the camera is a little shaky and low res but the audio is good. It gives you a very good idea of the sound of the new MM Delay in a small to medium sized club.

This is a great sounding delay for a player who wants to get his tone a little wet. I think less is more with delays (as with most effects). In this video the three controls (Level, Delay, and Repeat) are all set at the 9 o'clock position, giving the tone a nice fat slap-back sound. The pedal has the capacity to get more of a Space Echo sound if that is what you're into. The delay intervals can be dialed in from 25ms to 450ms, and the number of repeats from one to infinity.

As I mentioned above the pedal housing is metal. It feels very solid. The controls rotate smoothly with a good feel, and the On/Off button is hefty with a solid click. You can power it with a 9v battery or power supply, which are not included.

There are lots of delay pedals out there, some of which are way over-priced. This MM Delay is a lot like the Memphis Mini amp: It sounds great for a lot less money. It's a quality, no-nonsense addition to your rig that won't break your bank. $69 delivered is a very fair price.

The roll-out date is coming soon for the MM Delay and we will begin taking pre-orders, so stay tuned!.
