The full-sized MXR Carbon Copy delay pedal is considered by many as a modern classic. A pedalboard staple for many, this beautiful-sounding analogue delay is adored for its rich and warm repeats; only made possible with its old-school bucket brigade technology.
The MXR Carbon Copy Mini packs everything that we love about the standard pedal into a smaller and more ergonomic enclosure. But that's not all, as MXR has given it another trick up its sleeve! Boasting the same control-set as its full-sized counterpart, the mini version also has a 'Bright' switch that lets you access the more vibrant sounds from the Carbon Copy Bright pedal. Pretty cool, huh?
MXR kept it simple with the original Carbon Copy. Instead of fitting their stompbox with fiddly and unnecessary controls, MXR decided to equip you with the absolute essentials, and the Carbon Copy Mini adheres to the same philosophy. This makes it very easy to dial in a fantastic delay sound anywhere and at any time (no pun intended).
The MXR Carbon Copy Mini's 'Mix' control lets you balance your dry sound with the wet delay, enabling you to set anything from a subtle solo thickener to a loud and engulfing ambient effect. 'Regen' allows you to dial in the amount of repeats, while 'Delay' affects their time. With 600ms of delay time on tap, there's plenty to play with!
The Carbon Copy Mini has also carried over the 'Mod' button from its bigger brother. Press this, and you'll add a sweet chorus-like modulation to your repeats, for that nostalgic '80s-style delay sound. The right-hand side of the pedal features the aforementioned 'Bright' switch, which adds more top-end to the repeats for a clearer and more articulate tone.
