MOEN MO-PD Pretty Dolly Analog Delay Pedal Review

MOEN MO-PD Pretty Dolly Analog Delay Pedal Review

I’ve been lucky enough to test a handful of the Moen pedals and I have nothing but good things to say so far.  This Pretty Dolly Analog Delay Pedal is no exception, it sounds great, has zero noise floor and looks vibrant and eye catching.  The Pretty Dolly features a maximum delay time of 500ms which makes it a direct competitor to the Way Huge Electronics Aqua Puss Pedal which is much more expensive.  I have used both and I would be very surprised if anyone could tell the difference if given a blind test.  Having zero noise floor is a huge advantage as you don’t hurt your signal with any crackle or hiss that some cheaper pedals (and some expensive!) are known to do.  The MOEN rage is somewhat of a hidden gem in a market filled with pedals.  I have no hesitation to recommend these to people looking for high quality tones and sounds in an affordable package.  This particular one sounds so good that I am going to add it to my own pedal board.  If you want to buy one of these online check out Swamp which is where I got mine online.  Analog Delay sounds awesome with an amp with Reverb, No Reverb, in conjunction with an overdrive pedal and fills out your rhythm and lead tones with organic sounding and musical delays.

(4.4 / 5)
My rating for this pedal is a 4.4/5.  It sounds great, has no signal loss or added noise, it’s affordable and it looks pretty cool!  The Pretty Dolly pedal totally rocks!

BOSS DM-2 Analog Delay Pedal Review

BOSS DM-2 Analog Delay Pedal Review

This video demo is for the BOSS DM-2 Analog Delay Pedal.  This retro/discontinued pedal is made in Japan is highly sought after by many guitar players due to it’s warm and wonderful sounds.  My first impression of this pedal was “how good can it be?”. I am not sure why I didn’t give it the benefit of the doubt, but it’s probably because I am so happy with the BOSS DD-7 that I didn’t think that the BOSS DM-2 would live up to it’s newer counterpart.  Although the DD-7 is a Digital pedal, it also has an analog delay setting that is usable and musical but to be honest falls short compared to the BOSS DM-2.  This pedal commands high dollars on eBay these days and if you’re lucky enough to have one, hold onto it.  I’m sure there’s a bunch of analog delay pedals that are just as good, but there’s not many that does what the DM-2 does and so easily.

While the newer DD-7 does a great job on the Analog setting, the DM-2 is a no-frills approach to a simple pedal, with zero hiss or crackle/noise in the circuit, so guitar nerds will enjoy the noise free goodness and warm analog settings that is so highly sought after.

These are definetely worth checking out but don’t pay too much for it – as I mentioned they are selling for a lot of money on eBay.
