End of life notice: the Memory Lane 2 is unfortunately nearing the end of it's lifespan. The supply of NOS Panasonic MN3005 chips we use is becoming very limited and very expensive. Luckily, we've managed to stockpile a modest supply which will allow us to continue building Memory Lane 2 for a short time but when they're gone.. they're gone!

The Memory Lane 2 is not a 'hybrid delay' or 'analog voiced' delay. Featuring NOS (new-old-stock) MN3005 BBD (bucket brigade delay) chips running at 15V the Memory Lane offers high headroom and superior sound quality with a 100% analog signal path.

The Memory Lane 2 expands on the innovations of the original Memory Lane offering several new features requested by players and a new twist that further bridges the feature gap between analog and digital delays while retaining the warmth and unique sound of bucket brigade delay devices.

With this newly revised version of our highly acclaimed analog delay pedal players now have the ability to control delay time via an expression pedal input, footswitch between two independent delay times: one set via the Delay knob, the other set using the tap tempo footswitch function. In addition, we've added a dotted 8th note setting for producing 'U2 style' rhythmic delays.

Slapback mode- We've also added a 'slapback' switch to the back of the pedal which allows DLY1 to be set to a single repeat while DLY2 can have as many as you like further enhancing the useability of the pedal.

Spaceship mode- many players loved the way the original Memory Lane could easily be coaxed into self oscillation, but for some players it was a little too easy. We've reduced the sensitivity of the default mode for higher feedback (more repeats) before self oscillation but for the players who are into those jet-fuled, screaming self oscillation sounds, there's an internal switch to enable 'Spaceship mode". In this mode the Feedback path is even more sensitive than the original Memory Lane- fun, fun, fun!

Diamond Guitar Pedals - compressor

The Diamond Compressor is our take on a 'guitar channel' - a dynamics and tone shaping tool for live and studio use - with low-noise, ultra-linearsignal buffering, smooth opto-based compression, and a versatile 'tilt' EQ that musicallyshifts overall frequency balance.All in a user-friendly 3-control package - just Comp, EQ and Volume.


Diamond Guitar Pedals - jdrive

Compression setting: Be sure to try out the different compression settings by setting the switch as describedin the user manual. The JD offers a less compressed, more raw setting as well as more of a classicoverdrive sound with longer sustain. We've found the classic setting works best with Marshall master volume amps like the JCM800.


Diamond Guitar Pedals - vibrato

In addition the pedal also offers analog chorusing via the Chorus control to blend a variable amount of dry signal with the effected signal. The new Diamond Vibrato is a dedicated pitch vibrato design using bucket brigade analog delay technology for true pitch modulating vibrato. The 'HIGH' toggle switches to a higher depth range for more extreme pitch bent sounds.


Diamond Guitar Pedals - mln jr

The the MLJr digital sampling engine's sole function is to copy, delay and reproduce the delay path signal with no mathematical manipulation at all - and unlike standard digital designs, there are no digital anti-aliasing and reconstruction filters.


Diamond Guitar Pedals - tremolo

Tap tempo and footswitchable double speed mode- user selectable waveforms - timing accents - rhythmic trem mode - 'Chaotic' mode - random speeds with any waveform!- TapViewfeature allows the player to visually see the tempo and tap speed while tapping a new setting. At the heart of the new Diamond Tremolo is a 100% analog signal path utilizing an optoisolator like vintage tube amplifiers of the 60's.
