Memory Boy - NEW in 2009!!
What is it that makes a performance legend? Experience and design integrity
make a legend. Since the early 1970's, Electro-Harmonix has been designing
analog delays featured on some of the greatest recordings and used by legendary
musicians throughout the world. From the original Memory Man to the Deluxe
Memory Man, still available today, our delays are desired instruments for the
organic tones that deliver textures that define quality.
The new Memory Boy carries the performance heritage for warm analog delays
and modulations that made its ancestors the go to legends that remain today.
With two years in design using new and refined, analog IC's the focus was making
the legend affordable to every musician while maintaining the character and
artistic sounds that let you stand apart.
The new Memory Boy straps on the cape and flies with heritage into the search
for amazing sound at a price that mere mortals can afford.

quick premiminary review from analogmike with only 5 minutes of testing
We just got them in and I tested one out.
very cool! Amazing for the price.
The tone is very nice until up about 1:00 or higher, the sound gets a little ring modulated as the delay time may be a
little high for the four 3208 chips. the modulation is great! true bypass is fine. 9V power is VERY convenient. I could not get
self oscillation at the longest delay times but I was using a single coil guitar, may need to hit it a little harder. Since it has
four 3208 chips I don't see why we couldn't double the delay time with four 3205 chips and get higher quality sounds at the
higher delay times, probably close to a second should still sound good.
The coolest thing was I found that using a Boss EV5 expression pedal full forward makes the delay time TWO SECONDS.... really
lofi and only one or two repeats but you can do some crazy things with the expression pedal at that end.
