You've probably already watched 100 youtube videos spelling out the details.
These are my thoughts as they pertain to my situation - I play guitar in a worship band (similar style to jesus culture)

PROS:
* Expression pedal control over feedback is excellent. Can create some really fun pad sounds. I'm using the Yamaha FC7 Volume Control Pedal and it works great.
* Only analog delay <$200 that has tap tempo
* Nice warm fuzzy analog tone

MEHS:
* The tone is very warm, and I like it, but if you're expecting a tone quality like diamond or strymon or even just a carbon copy, this will disappoint. Don't get me wrong - it's good. Perhaps even great. But it doesn't stand up to "the best". It's also less than half the price of "the best".
* This pedal has introduced a faint hum when used directly in my amp's FX loop. It's not strong, but it's noticeable.

CONS:
* When you tap tempo with a sub-division, the LED flashes also change to reflect the sub-division. I wish it just continued blinking at the originally tapped quarter note tempo. Not enough to take a star off, just a personal preference
* If you're playing, and tap a new tempo, the changing delay times will cause the existing delays to go crazy. This is a cool effect if you're playing with the delay KNOB, but when you're just trying to get the tap tempo "just right" it really messes up your playing in the song. Unless you're completely silent, you can't tap in a new tempo.
* Not really a con, just an FYI - this delay will NOT give you crisp, perfectly repeated notes that mimic exactly what you played. For that you need a digital delay. This particular style analog delay is much warmer; an almost "muted" repeat. It's meant to enhance the overall tone, not multiply the number of notes being played.

I've been gigging with the memory boy for about a year now, and i wouldn't change a thing. The tap function and subdividing button make it incredibly quick and easy to set it up in a live setting. I've got a roland expression pedal hooked up and us it to control the amount of feedback the pedal gives. AWESOME!

I am going to rate this 5 stars with the consideration that it is less than $200. Yes, the Memory Man w/ the NOS panasonic ICs has a cleaner delay with less high end trash, but it's twice the price.

The Memory Boy is certainly a dark delay, but I like dark delays. They don't get in the way and muddy up your playing. There is a LPF that can be engaged to take some low end out, and you have to compensate by turning up the depth, but you end up with a very low-fi "old radio" type delay sound, which still can be cool. This is not a delay to be doing Edge type delay rhythms.

The delay gets more trashy as it gets longer, and is pretty bad at longest delay time (700ms), as you get a high end squeal mixed in with the delay, but for slap back and shorter delays....up to maybe 400ms, it sounds clean enough...just dark. It is actually too dark to use the modulation for chorus and flange effects, like you can with the Deluxe Memory Man. You end up with a muddy mess. But if you're looking for a dark, low-fi delay with good tap-tempo features, it's hard to beat the price of this unit.

I would say its closest competition price and feature wise would be the Wampler Faux Echo, which is digital, but sounds very analog. Very similar features, but can get more highs, and has a "shade" knob to add or subtract high end. I've got them both, and will probably keep them both, because they sound different enough. But if I had to keep one, it would probably be the Wampler.

This is unique because it is (1) analog, (2) tap tempo. Those are things you don't usually find in the same package, and in this case you can kind of hear how they've had to adjust the circuit to make them work together. It seems as though the way they set the analog portion is using a digital controller; so when you use the tap tempo function you can hear the digital part as it speeds up the signal to the analog chips.

There are other features that are pretty interesting too - for example the square wave modulation (the linear wave modulation does a pretty fantastic job of emulating the wobble of old tape delays) can get some very binary sounds out of it. The knob is fairly straightforward and you can get it to modulate intervals, so you can adjust the tonality for different songs, but not really on the fly. The settings at the periphery can be very inspiring, and it does a great job of making regular delay sounds as well.

My only knock on it (and it wasn't enough to remove a star) is the actual quality of the delay - I've played both the malekko ekko 616 v1 and the mxr carbon copy and the ehx pedal doesn't really have the same fidelity. Both of those pedals manage to produce warm delays that are very close to the original. The EHX is kind of like drawing with a brush compared with the pencil of the other two delays mentioned in the review.

But, those other two delays are fairly limited in the scope of sounds they can deliver. The deluxe memory boy is infinitely broader, but also slightly noticeably more shallow.

I would absolutely buy again/recommend, unless the person was one of those people who claims to be able to tell a difference between different distortion pedals of the same make/model - like people that claim you need to try out a few ts-9 pedals before you find a good one, or something. They're going to need an assistant to adjust the parameters of their pedals rather than get a versatile foot operated one like the EHX.
