(M-206) Series 2000 Time Delay

Effect Information

“Somewhat rare MXR Series 2000 Time Delay
analog effect manufactured from 1982-84. A very lush, smooth analog
delay like the MXR Carbon Copy but quieter than the Carbon Copy as well
as the
Boss DM-2. All metal
heavy case, made in the USA, larger and heavier than a boss pedal. This
pedal has metal mounted controls and jacks and is not
to be confused with the (in some opinions) inferior cheap plastic MXR Commande Series pedals also called “time delay” but with cheap board mounted
parts.”

“The
key to the super smooth low noise delay sound of this pedal is the very rare SAD4096 analog delay IC chip. It has the usual three knobs for delay time, mix, and regen. There is an input
and two outputs. If output one is used, you get a mix of delay and
dry signal controlled by the mix knob.”

“When output
two is used you get all wet delay only. When you use both outputs, the
mix knob can pan the blend of wet and dry outputs in between the two
jacks from fully panned wet/dry and then back to mono wet/dry
mixed, and anywhere in between. Very unique if using two amps or two
mixer
channels panned L/R. Also very neat and different is the two LEDs. Red
is
for effect on, and yellow is effect off.”

“The
foot switch is also very unique. It is not a mechanical switch like all
other pedals, so there are no moving parts to break or wear out. It
uses a piezo vibration sensor that senses the touch of your foot
hitting it, just like a piezo acoustic guitar bridge senses string
vibration.”
