Great sounds, but has its downsides.

Ease Of Use Dead easy to use, it's analogue so there's no button pushing, just move the knobs. It may take a while to get your settings tweaked, but its a taste thing none of it sounds bad. It is a one sound set up though and while you can use it for chorus or vibrato or delay, you can't easily alter the settings - you have to flick switches and twiddle knobs - no presets here!


Sound I'm running this second to last in my pedal chain and it sounds very rich and lush with that 'analogue warmth' that everyone bangs on about. It's not too noisy either, which is nice, but it is a bit sensitive to the amount of signal that is going in and the led showing overload is easily lit up! I sometimes have a problem with the volume dropping when you hit the footswitch, this is more a matter of setting all the pedals up to balance properly.


Reliability Seems pretty sturdy, has been gigged and rehearsed enough with no problems. You see plenty of old ones about so it makes me think they are pretty tough. Having said that I look after my gear, so I'm not expecting any issues.


Customer Support I emailed EH once a few years back about one of their compressor pedals and never received a reply, make of that what you will!


Liked about it 1. The sounds are great, lush, organic, 3d all the usual plaudits apply
2. Lots of variety in this box
3. Solid metal box seems pretty tough


Didn't like 1. The drop in volume is a bit of a pain
2. It would be nice to be able to set up a couple of sounds and switch between them, although that is really beyond the remit of this effect.
3. The box is big and takes up a good bit of space on the board

The most famous analog delay ever, and for good re

Ease Of Use I would say that there is a slight learning curve when dialing in your sound; it takes about ten minutes to really get the hang of it. It's analog so no crazy patches to cycle through, just knobs baby!


Sound The EH DMM is the Cadillac of analog delays. Excellent sound quality, decent delay times, and the modulation is killer! It can be a little noisy on more driven tones, but it is analog so that is to be expected. The only real issue is that it is easy for the delay to be overdriven, but then again if you wanted a pristine more sterile sounding delay, you would go for digital. Also, you may not want to put the pedal in an FX loop, because it doesn't like a low impedance input.


Reliability If you have had any experience with an analog delay, you know they can be finicky but deliver a warm and natural sounding delay. EH pedals are very well made in NY, so I am not too worried.


Customer Support Never had to deal with the company, but they have a great website and forum community.


Liked about it Warm luscious sound, excellent modulation, very reliable


Didn't like Large footprint, distorts somewhat easily, expensive
