I stand corrected
Nocturne DynoBrain (aka Brain Seltzer) pedal. Pretty much looks new except for some dust :). Also includes the instructions that were provided with the pedal. I think Tavo called this color "Buick blue." I think everyone on this site is well aware of what this pedal is and what it does but in...www.gretsch-talk.com
@aleceiffel , a great deal here and you heard it from " the man " himselfthat pedal for sale is the Dynobrain. a stripped down 77' Roland RE301 space echo "preamp" stand alone unit. The BS-301 Mysterybrain is a full Tape echo sim pedal that remains about 85% analog. It has the defeatable (trubypass stom) 301 space echo preamp, but the front of the Tape echo circuit has an Echoplex preamp that routes to the wet slap back of the tape echo, as does the photocell vibrato on that pedal. All to say, you were indeed not corrected, so you still stand correct.
Just picked up a Mystery Brain that was for sale on the forum here because of this thread@aleceiffel keep in mind there are to Carbon Copies, the original and a bright, that said if you have the cash the Mystery Brain would be the pedal I would buy. I bought the original carbon copy, which is a bit dark to me, first having never heard of Nocturne pedals. Now that I have both I can honestly say the Mystery Brain would have come first had I known of them when I was looking. I can’t say I wouldn’t still buy the CC but it is a different flavor one that I might have done with out had the MB been in my possession first. The MB has a lot more going for it.
I love how much ground you can cover with a Mystery Brain and an El Pescadoro/Jr Barnyard.You should be a happy player with that buy. You get the added bonus of the RE-301 preamp on the Mystery Brain. My #1 favorite preamp that I can’t live without. You may just come to the same conclusion.
Might be, the carbon copy is darker there was a bright version of it but I have never tires it. I have threatened to buy a source audio delay but haven’t done so. I would think with the tweak-ability something by them or Strymon should get you where you want. Honestly haven’t used very many delay pedals So I can’t contribute much.Back from the trenches here.. So, I've had some experience with the Mystery Brain and Aqua-Puss at this point -- both fantastic pedals, but I _think_ I want something a tad bit brighter? I think I'm just very used to the built-in slapback on the Super Champ XD, which I imagine is just the cheapest digital modeling they could cram in there. My brain is wired to expect something close to an exact repeat of the notes hit..
So, does that mean I should be in the market for a digital delay pedal? If that's the case, I suppose the Echoplex still stands? Anyone have experience in terms of "brightness" w/ the Echoplex? Also, would a DD-3 (T? 7? 8?) be the go-to answer for a digital delay to do what it sounds like I'm desiring?
