    I just got my Carbon Copy today! I love it in front of my Deliverance! And I run alotta gain! It really works well all around, for quiet passages when I lower guitar volume, it's really nice! I usually keep the delay time longer, more in a rhythmic tempo, with about three or four repeats, and mix pretty low, that way it works well with alotta gain!

    How would you guys compare the Carbon Copy to the Boss Delays? I'm thinking of replacing my DD-3's with the Carbon Copy. Also, how it in in front of the amp?

    Not having a choice of placement (f/x loop vs. in front), analog was the way. The delayed tone is way warmer. Plus it's Green!

    IF you want reverb, do NOT get the holy grail, or the digital delay...
    messes up your awesome VHT tone.
    Get the Lee Jackson Mr. Springgy. You will not be disappointed.
    There are a few youtube clips of them if you want hear them. Best
    reverb pedal I've ever had.

    MXR carbon copy, is the best delay pedal on the market. period.(imho) I tryed it against several boutique brands and it had better tone and better control. on a side note, I also just got the new toadworks barracuda flanger pedal and I love it. worth checkin into if ya dig flange.

Wish I knew why mine doesn't. I love the amp aside from that. I was finally able to use it with a band last night and have been raving about it ever since. It sounds killer! Back to the reverb, is there a mod I can do? Can you change the value of the reverb pot to help with reverb? I emailed VHT quite sometime ago about the reverb (changing the reverb driver to a 12AX7 or a EL84) but they never responded back.
    Yes I agree with you...
