In this photo, you can see the pedal on Josh Paul's pedalboard. From the viewer's perspective, the Electro-Harmonix Memory Boy is the right-most pedal on the pedalboard. From Josh Paul's perspective, the pedal is located on the closest (i.e. bottom) row and is the left-most pedal on the pedalboard.more
"I was using an Electro-Harmonix Memory Boy until it busted. On this last tour I bought this really funny, super-cheap pedal that’s called “Analog Delay.” Apparently it’s a German company that takes Boss pedals, repackages them in a cheaper plastic box, and sells them for cheaper. I don’t remember what the company is, but it’s a pretty funny little pedal."more

The Electro-Harmonix Memory Boy is a smooth analog delay that takes its heritage from the 1970s Memory Man and the legendary Deluxe Memory Man. The Memory Boy uses the Deluxe Memory Man as a base, expanding upon it with additional modulation features and an optional expression pedal input for external control over delay time or modulation rate.
Memory Boy features a 550ms delay time, allowing you to explore limitless textures. A three-way toggle switch lets you add in vibrato or chorus, or control the delay time with an external expression pedal.
Since the early 1970's, Electro-Harmonix has been designing analog delays featured on some of the greatest recordings and used by iconic musicians throughout the world. From the original Memory Man guitar pedal to the Deluxe Memory Man, still available today, EHX delay pedals are desired instruments for the organic tones that deliver textures that define quality.
This thing is Amazing, the quality of the repeats, the coloration on the sound. You can create incredible musical landscapes with this, and as I said, it has A MILLION SOUNDS inside. Plug it in, fuck around with the knobs, it can go anywhere to slapbacks to long psychedelic delays. It has modulation too, and it can go all the way from subtle musical, to unusable 8 bit sounding stuff, I love this pedal, it will stay in my board forever.
This is not a digital delay - it is analog, and because of that, it only goes up to 550ms. That, however, is why I bought it. It will not give you long digital delay times if you're after that, but it will give you great slapback up to lush ambient delay with the feedback turned up. The depth controls can give you a variety of very specialized sounds but be prepared to scarcely use them. When they do fit the song, however, they make it that much more dreamy. You can also plug a volume/expression pedal to it and control delay time or depth. I really recommend this to anyone going for ambient soundscapes or shorter delays.
It is a small version of Memory man. There is no "tap tempo" button and it is sad. There are simple but crazy modulation modes, which can be used to make space synth noises. Time of delay varies from 30 ms to 550 ms. It goes from doubling to slapback very easy. Then you can go to echoes. Modulation can go from chorus to vibrato. Also you can connect Exp. add for modulation and delay time control. If you don't care about tap, big long echoes and want analog sound vintage delay - this one is for you.
Esse pedal é o principal pedal do set.. Ele é usado em todas as partes sem drive, e as vezes tambem é usado em momentos com drive.. Não costumo usar muito como um delay de repetição, e sim como um delay pra deixar o clean mais bonito e duradouro haha
A lot of lo-fi sounds. My favourite setting is: delay and feedback at minimum, blend maxed, toogle in vibrato, triangular shape and you have a cool a la old vinyl vibrato.
The first and only problem I've had with this is a power supply. It blatantly refuses to run off batteries or cheap power supplies even if the power requirements match. It's very temperamental when it comes to power. As a simple delay though it is brilliant with 3 delay effects setting and two wave modes for each of the 3 effects. You can turn the effects off if you want it to delay normally but a bit of a chorus based pitch shift can do wonders when playing through some chord changes. It decays naturally, warmly and distinctly and the only bad thing I can really say about the unit is that I wish the delay time could be held a little longer.
