It's analog, has tap tempo and true bypass, built very solidly, and has some cool features. I was hoping that this would be the replacement for my MXR Carbon Copy that's been on my pedal board for three years, which I love but it's biggest drawback for me is it doesn't have tap tempo. My rig is a Mesa RectoVerb 50 combo, Gibson Les Paul Std. One of the first things I noticed when trying this pedal is the delayed signal degrades much more than the MXR, so much that it has a very fizzy, almost overdriven tone. I understand that this is an inherent characteristic with analog delays, but the tonal quality of the MXR delayed signal is much smoother and less "fizzy". After toying with it for some time, I just could not get the sound quality that was close to the MXR. It's not a bad analog delay, I just like my Carbon Copy much better: much smoother and more organic sounding delays. Packed up the DMB and shipped it back. I'll just wait until MXR comes out with an analog pedal with tap tempo.
