A few last minute comments
Overall this unit really fattens up the steel tone and does for standard guitar what an echoplex would in my application as far as straight slapback echo. The echo is low fidelity
but just produces the perfect overall echo effect to my ears when added to the original sound. Not too visible in the pics is the extreme sparkle in the finish. I recorded an old
Ray Price tune using the Carbon Copy for both guitar and steel along with a small touch of Boss RV-5 reverb (see link above). Below are solo sound samples of both steel and guitar so
you can hear more clearly what the effect is doing. A few other obverstations are that the Carbon Copy does not come with a battery and you have to remove all 4 philips screws in the
bottom cover to gain access to the battery compartment. There is Modulation button on the top on the unit that adds a bit of chorus to the delay. At the stock under the bottom cover settings
the MOD effect is barely perceptible. In the first steel sound sample you'll hear the MOD off for the first set of notes and on for the second set. Under the bottom cover there are width and
Rate adjustments for the Modulation effect. Unlike most stomp boxes, this one has the power cord on the side which can interfere with the routing of the audio cables. ANother thing wirth noting
is that the maximun delay is way shorter than most digital delay units and note to useful for doubling effects.
I also recorded Cryin' My Heart Out Over You on my Tab 20 page with the Carbon Copy. On the recorded songs (versus the sound bites above) I've got just a hint of echo which adds to the sustain
without producing an in your face discrete echo sound. There's also some technique involved in not hitting too many sharply damped notes on slow songs which allow the echo too stand out too much.
