    I got my CC Deluxe in today and got to play with it for a little while. It is exactly what I was hoping for so far. It is a lot more subtle than the digital delay I just sold and also a little darker. The "bright" switch adds a little more clarity to the wet signal but without pushing it into a harsh sound. The mod/chorus switch works well once you get the "mix" setting dialed in. You can go from crazy warbles to just a bit more depth.

    One thing I have noticed that others have pointed out is that you really do have to turn the mix up pretty high before you can hear the delays. I wouldn't call it a dislike but it is different. I can see where it would be an advantage though when lightly picking single notes. With the mix low and regen set fairly high it really fills in those spaces.

    Add in the tap tempo and mod pots on the outside along with the ability to use an external switch or expression pedal and in my book....it's a winner!

    I wanted to like it twice, but couldn't.

    I just have the regular CC and the only thing I wish it had is tap tempo....but for the music I do now I can
    live without tap tempo.

    This is on my close-to-pulling-the-trigger list, keep us updated!

    If you have a moment, what didn't you like about it (twice!)?

    You're only allowed to "Like" it once. I was making a joke about wanting to like it twice being it is a Carbon Copy effect.:lol:
    If I was going to buy a delay pedal, that's the one I would want to get. Good choice.

    Ah, okay... Good to know. That sound you heard was the joke going over my head!

    The regular Carbon Copy has the delay spot on my main board. For slapback it can't be beat!

    So far it’s this with the tempo adjusted to suit.

    I’ve had one since they came out. I think it’s a keeper but as others have stated, you have to turn the mix knob 3/4 of the way to even hear delay in your signal chain.

    I won’t sell mine but I currently have a Diamond Memory Lane Jr. on my board as my #1 delay.
