The Deluxe Memory Boy is the newest delay from the Memory Man family. Quality ICs deliver warm and organic analog tones while tap tempo allows you to always be in sync with the groove. Choose five note divisions for metronomic variances. Sweet modulations can be set while the expression pedal input gives you external control. The Deluxe Memory Boy is the most flexible analog delay ever designed.

The Signal Pad is a passive attenuator that allows you to instantly switch to a different preset volume. It’s like your guitar’s volume knob, with a fully-passive and color-free circuit. Leave your amp’s volume set high for overdrive, and use the Signal Pad to lower your level for a clean sound — then switch it off to kick in your amp’s natural overdrive. You can also experiment with the Signal Pad anywhere in your effects chain — you’ll bring out new tonal combinations from your favorite old pedals.

“Hilarious, brilliant and unpredictable” are three words that have been used to describe comedian, vocalist, performance artist, Reggie Watts. Reggie recently visited Mike Matthews and the Electro-Harmonix crew in NYC. The performer relies on his EH 2880 Stereo Multi-Track Looper—it’s the core of his rig—and put on an impromptu show in the EH Lab.
