Over the course of the 50 years that have comprised the bulk of modern pedal design and manufacturing, there are certain singular pedals that have attained a special stature among tone chasers of all stripes. Without question, the EHX Deluxe Memory Man falls into this category. The "DMM," as it is affectionately referred to by countless devotees, was an immediate hit when it first appeared in the 1970s. Players were instantly hooked on its sumptuous vibrato, rich chorus, and impeccable delay. From basement woodshedding experimentalists to artists like U2's The Edge — who used the '80s DMM iteration on nearly all of the band's earliest recordings — this legendary pedal was heard the world over. Now, you can channel these signature sounds with the EHX Nano Deluxe Memory Man Analog Delay/Chorus/Vibrato Pedal, a smaller, pedalboard-friendly version of the classic DMM that boasts added features sure to delight the modern player.
The Nano Deluxe Memory Man delivers EHX’s signature analog delay with adjustable delay times from 30ms up to 550ms, giving you a wide range to explore countless stylistic approaches. And with the new Depth knob, you can set the amount of modulation that’s added to the delay to get really cool vibrato and chorus-type effects. In addition, a new Rate knob puts you in the driver's seat of overall modulation speed — a feature guitarists here at Sweetwater will attest keeps them in their practice space for hours of sonic tinkering.
The EXH Nano DMM also features full control over the number of echo repeats right up to runaway oscillation with the Feedback knob, an adjustable input gain via the Level knob, and a Wet/Dry mix control over the dry and delayed signals via the Blend knob. Try this latest iteration of the Deluxe Memory Man and you will understand why Radiohead's Ed O’Brien once said that taking this pedal off your board was like “taking your soul away.”
