Lvz77's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" An honest but no more delay"

Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy
This is a delay of the series Nano EHX

It takes the place of a pedal on a pedalboard unlike Memory Man who eats half.

It is said analog. 1 input, 1 output, 1 9v power jack.


- One knob "delay" for the length 550ms which is more than enough.

- 1 for the feedback the number of repetitions that can go to the self-oscillation.

- 1 blend knob, which is a kind of mix. When this is purely live mix, but in an effects loop can act as light boost, nice except that it adds treble not necessarily musical.

- 1 switch modulation unit ... which repeats. Unusable, it sounds just wrong.


Although at first I struggled with this effect I saw my opinion.

The delay is good, it does not sound Memory Man and it is perhaps better that gives him some own character.

It sounds really good in slapback and reverb false, very soft, very vintage. For solos too, with my G & L vintage sounds. In contrast to the rhythmic separately in clean, crunch or it's too messy.


I have since the beginning of this year 2013, I had some troubles with power effect would not activate, I changed my diet even milliamps, the effect is active. Both power supplies are working well except that the effect is active with a. It works, I no longer try to understand.

I typed some vintage effects (Chill Jam, Fulltone Wah, Maxon PT-999 etc. ..) but it sounds old vintage, old no.
And therein lies the problem of the effect. When I switched I feel that my hair is turning white, my graying beard and my youth is drawn.

Sure it amuses me in slapback and doing some solos but this is the slap.
I can not recommend this product a little to people looking for a vintage sound not too expensive and not too much space, for others it will think of something else.

Note that I am looking for a one year delay can replace it convinced me that little touch of the hair hedgehog.

pixedelisme's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" his own universe"

Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy
analog delay in nano size


simple configuration 3 knobs
1 delay time for "time" between the notes played
2 feedback to the number of repetitions
3 blend to mix his left untreated and treated only right that his

the blend knob is a bit annoying to handle, I would have preferred a volume effect rather


unlike other reviews I did not feel the volume up by this delay against "colored" fairly sound, there is an equalization of difficult "vintage" genre to describe but is very present, it brings warmth to the sound. I possesses another analog that I made DIY (the tonepad rebote) is the sound is more neutral bcp

repeated notes are accompanied by a breath - this is normal is analog even three times as much time have this feature here ...

the sound is good, the settings allow you to quickly find what you want, watch the delay is not very loooong and dirty too if pushed.

chorus mod is nice to radically change his but I do not use it personally

I use it with a Fender Telecaster and a microphone wide in the clear on a fender deville or twin reveb


I use it for a few weeks, I must say that I almost sell after a few hours of use because he went too fast self oscillation: past 12pm on the feedback knob was uncontrollable and I was getting yelled at by other musicians who were "draft" ... after researching on the net I opened the beast pawed the trimpot No. 5 (note gain per side) and I extended the feedback by reducing autoscillation. the shot is impeccable now.

benefits (bought used for 50 euros and small size of the pedalboard) I do not regret my purchase. on the other hand for those who use very often delay I recommend another or as a digital sound is still processed. for the music I play it goes!

Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy
Delay circuit with analog technology


Simple configuration can be set (in the ear) the number of repetitions, speed of onset, and the signal ratio dry / wet signal. Hard to talk about "dry" in truth because the "buffer" the pedal to affect the sound: turn the road in 100% dry and your sound mode changes, there is a small boost and a change in the EQ.

A small inverter adds a chorus effect (perhaps inspired by the classic Memory Man and surely made to mimic the "flutter" of tape delays - that is to say, the slight variations in the pitch of the note in rehearsals, due to the heterogeneous movement of the tape).

The set is very instinctive, which is more to my liking ... As against the buttons being small, slight movement is enough to not move the wrong knob (this is a physical principle :)) so fine adjustments are precise and ultra hard to get (no tap tempo here ...), they be patient or fuck in a bit.


The sound is NOT clear and repetitions are not faithful reproductions of the original guitar signal. This is not a judgment of taste, but all know before you buy. This pedal is used, in a small and a modest price format, to have a warm delay, which defaults to the charm.

NOTE: the arrival of the repetition is accompanied by breath. That means if you put the time of the longest possible delay: when repeating sounds, adds a small breath then goes slowly, "fade out".

Personally, I love this little delay unpretentious, a bit "lo-fi" on the edges, but effective and easy to use.

Its strong point in my opinion is the "slapback", that is to say, a repetition of a short time, typical rock'n'roll, 1950-60.


I use it on stage, a lot! For three years I think. I tried the Memory Boy and I preferred the little brother (the two have nothing to do anyway ...).

I have a venerable Roland RE-201 (Space Echo) magnetic tape (which now needs repair). A real tape echo unit, this is great but in my opinion it is for the studio, unless you ais a tour bus or a mad desire to wrestle you 10kg unit in addition to your amp and your guitars.

So now, the Memory Toy is incomparable to the previous example, but for now, for me, he did his job for small scenes and aged very well (it's solid, no frills, all the EHX spit).

douglove's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" delay the dark"

Electro-Harmonix Memory Toy
small analog delay


easy to use
attention to providing sufficient power: dedicated power supply required


a delay super dark, filthy good analog
I love that sound wonderful

At first I really wondered how to make it sound, but after a few days I could not do without

Well lets inflate its (high speed, 1 repetition) as clean as saturated

Great effects oscillations when you push the knobs fully
there's enough good laugh (and even what kind of wacky sounds are 'natural', it does not hack digital)

when the effect 'between chorus and flanger', it gives something quite melodic, very present (this is not discrete but can be useful)


Superb delay
Unfortunately, mine dropped me!
more sound at all, over
I browsed a bit to the left and right of the web root, and I saw that such concerns were not so isolated that!

I tried to fiddle around a bit inside: no chance!

Besides opening the pedal, there are so many compsant inside that really questions the meaning of the concept of 'Analog'!

shame, shame
Its big brothers (declination memory boy / man) may be stronger!
