Every guitarist will, at some point in their playing career, be looking for a good quality delay pedal. If you are after an analogue delay, then the MXR Carbon Copy was always a candidate in recent years. According to Jim Dunlop/MXR, it is the world’s best selling analogue delay. Now the company has produced this successful pedal in a smaller, more pedalboard friendly version. At last!


MXR Carbon Copy

The MXR Carbon Copy is probably on of the most successful delay pedals in the world. It’s been a big seller for the company. It’s rock solid and sounds perfect – if you like bucket chain delays. There’s already a plethora of editions available next to the normal version (affiliate link) in Bright , Deluxe , I Love Dust and the 10th Anniversary Edition.

Now comes the classic Carbon Copy delay in a mini pedal format. Not that this is a surprising move. Other MXR pedals have also been released in mini versions, such as the Dyna Comp, Vintage Bass Octave and the Phase 95. Big pedals in a small case is all the rage, it would seem.

But here the smaller case does not mean that it’s just the same effect stuffed into a smaller housing. Next to the obligatory mod-switch on the top there’s also a bright switch on the side. This unites the standard Carbon Copy and the Bright models into one very neat/compact pedal format.


No video demo or official pricing yet, so we will have to wait until it is officially announced by Jim Dunlop/MXR to find out the full details.

UPDATE – The MXR Carbon Copy Mini appears to have been pulled from the manufacturer’s website, so it’s currently not viewable there. We’ll update you with details as soon as we can.
