Question about MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay Pedal Guitar

1 Answer

I was jamming, getting a glorious sound as always with my carbon copy as a main feature of my sound, combined with chorus and such. I packed up my gear to go to a group new years eve jam. My buddy called to come over and jam so I set it all back up, and everything works but the delay unless you shut it off and bypass it, no sound. I took it off power supply and checked the old battery was still in there. I put in a live one. No luck. Not happy on new years.

DO NOT count on a "new" battery to be good! I always carry an inexpensive meter (about $3 from Harbor Freight) to test batteries. Try yet another battery...
A common failure however is that the wires to some of the battery clips break after having to fight with 9 volt battery clip removal that have wires... The ones without wires have a habit of not making contact at time...

What preset effect number is best for karaoke?


Always use echo and reverb, or just reverb for inexperienced singers. If I remember right this is from effect 19 but this is a very inflexible set-up with no control over the effects, just presets. You'll need to listen and decide what is best. You may also try chorus as with a decent effects unit this can be very effective plus a bit of reverb and echo.

Different songs like different effects and we will chop and change even in a single track when live mixing professional acts.

User manual for DOD DFX9 DIGITAL DELAY GUITAR PEDAL


Can't find a manual but can still explain. Delays, chorus, flangers, and reverbs are all the same effect except the different names of them will allow you different adjustments. Chorus usually has a width control which controls pitch shifting. Flangers and delays will have a feedback control which simply means, how many times you hear the echo. On reverb units, room size means how long of echo(even though it;s short) you want. Delay is the same with much longer echo, feedback is the same as on flangers except the flangers time is very short meaning the effect is at almost the exact time resulting in feedback causing a metalic sound. I probaly just confused you but good digital delays usually have all the features and will usually do all 4 effects depending on how you set them. If you want delay, set width on 0 and adjust time and feedback. For flanging, adjust width and speed and feedback. Chorusing, adjust time, width, and speed. Reverb, adjust time, set width on 0, and feedback. I see it has a level(mixture, how much effect you hear), and a replay(feedback, how many times you hear it), and a delay knob,(how long the echo will be) The range/mode switch allows for settings of diferent time lengths and INF setting allows for infinite repeat. Hope this helps.

Chorus emits a pulsating noise


Sounds to me like low-end gear. You honestly get what you pay for. If it happens to be high-end then you have either bad cables or just a bad effects processor. If you have on-board effects built into the amp, then get better equipment.

Hope this helps.

Chorus on- no problem- noise free. Chorus off- big problem- massive hum. This item is supposedly "new" (stupid me, I bought from Ebay...)


It sounds like the bypass contacts on the pedal are not working... this may be right in the pedal switch itself. With unit in off position, use an ohmmeter to check continuity between in and out cable tips.

Hi, when I play a chord on my Casio-656 keyboard it sometimes sounds out of tune - if you hit the chord again it plays correctly. Is this a fault or a setting? It seems to be intermittent so that would...


I would check your fingering... You MAY be late in hitting a particular note and the using auto chord... this can cause the problem. Another thing is if notes are hit with different velocity that can affect the sound. Sometimes certain voices have VELOCITY switching which actually changes the voice depending on the velocity you hit a note.

When playing it has a roaring sound and the chorus on and off is loss


Who could even guess what musical instrument you are talking about...

BUT I will say that if it is a device with a chorus setting that uses CCD (charge coupled device delay line), there COULD be a problem with the device. This would be a job for a service shop for the unit.

The correct order for Effects pedals.


Personally, I like to have all "tone effects", such as wahs, distortions and equalizers in front of "time effects" such as phasers, chorus, flangers and delays. See my set up in the photo. Guitar input is from right to left, starting with the wah pedal.
