After last month’s Mini Vintage Chorus, Mr Black has just announced a matching mini delay effect, unsurprisingly called the Mini Echo-Delay pedal.

The new Mr Black Mini Echo-Delay pedal is a mini format effect pedal based upon classic ’80s rack delays. Digital delays from 80mS up to 860mS are available, as well as what Mr Black describes as a “gentle and dynamic” modulation that adds “rhythmic shimmering movement” to your echoes.

It has controls for Level, Regen and Time. But beware that if you push that regeneration knob it will induce self-oscillation. That will make those that like to make a right old racket with their delay pedals take notice. The pedal does have self-cancelling oscillation on bypass, so you can tame it when you have to.

19″ rack no more!

The small format will certainly appeal to many players, as it will easily squeeze on to an already cramped pedal board or add some ’80s-tastic ambiences to a mini pedal rig. It will need to be powered from an external 9 volt power supply, as it is, of course, far too small to take a battery.

Each unit is hand-built in Portland, Oregon and like all Mr Black pedals will be built to last. I’m a fan of this company and use their Wormhole flanger a lot on my board. You can hear the new Mini Echo-Delay in action in their official demo video below.

It’s kind of cool that you can squeeze ’80s delay sounds into something so small. Way better than lugging around a noisy 19″ rack mounted unit for sure! And it is true-bypass, so it won’t mess with your guitar tone when it is not being used.

RRP – USD 99.95

This sounds good but, to me at least, the CC Mini sounds better.
