MXR's Carbon Copy Bright analog delay pedal is designed for players looking for a more present and articulate delay tone. The core of the Bright shares the same 100% analog Bucket Brigade circuitry as the popular first-generation MXR Carbon Copy, but the Bright is tuned for more clarity. Its voice lends itself well to delay stacking, giving you a decidedly three-dimensional sound when used with the darker-sounding original. The MXR Carbon Copy Bright delay pedal has all the analog goodness you want with a slightly brighter tone.
The original MXR Carbon Copy delay became a classic upon release for its easy-to-use design and warm Bucket Brigade tone. But some players wanted the option of a brighter delay that would cut through a mix better. The Carbon Copy Bright answers this call while still sharing all of the analog construction of its older brother. The Bright pedal's delays have a slight bass roll-off with a vocal-like quality that won't muddy your signal. And the metallic green finish is updated while still undeniably being a Carbon Copy.
The brighter tone of this pedal delivers all of the warmth and character of a great analog delay. But its newly tuned voice is a great alternative when you need something a bit different than the dark, chewy flavor of some designs. Instead of replacing the original Carbon Copy, the Bright is wonderful as an addition to your pedalboard for when you need both sounds. And the two models blend beautifully for stacking your delays in series or parallel.
Music Experience guitarists are thrilled to see that the Carbon Copy Bright delay has kept all the qualities that made the original so beloved. The same Bucket Brigade technology powers the Bright for 600ms of delay time. The Mod button adds the sound of an old tape delay's pitch modulation for adding a shimmering beauty to your tone that can be adjusted with internal controls. And true-bypass switching ensures the pedal won't color your guitar's natural tone when switched off.
The Carbon Copy Bright Delay has everything that the standard Carbon Copy Delay is revered for, but it's been tuned for a brighter sound. Where the standard version repeats have a dark, mellow wash, the Bright's repeats are more defined with a distinct vocal quality. The two sounds are great companions-we saw to it that they play nicely together. Engage the modulation section, and your repeats will sing with shimmery beauty as strummed chords ring out even longer than before. With 600 milliseconds of delay time, an enhanced frequency range, a vibrant delay path and true bypass switching, the Carbon Copy Bright Analog Delay is for players who've been searching for an all-analog delay with a more present and articulate tonal palette.
The Carbon Copy Bright adds a little more sheen to a classic design.
