Diamond Guitar Pedals


The Memory Lane Junior is a digital evolution of our original Memory Lane concept, the world's first analog delay with tap tempo.

By utilizing the same variable sample rate concept used in analog bucket brigade modulation, and adding custom analog anti-aliasing and reconstruction filters and companding, we've captured the ethereal essence of the Memory Lane ... in a much smaller footprint, with over twice the delay time, an extended frequency response, and standard 9V powering.

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. All signal paths around the sampling engine (direct path, feedback path and everything before and afterthe digital sampler) are analog paths carefully designed to provide a unique sonic signature that is unmistakably the Memory Lane Jr.

Listen to some samples of the Memory Lane Jr recorded by our pal Jamie Robinson-

With the exception of our 'store and forward' digital sampling engine that simply delays the sampled signal, the MLJR's companding, filtering, mixing and dry signal paths are all analog.

Here's a short Quicktime video of an amazing slide player we met at NAMM 2011 (and our bad - we can't find his contact info - if you're watching this, let us know so we can get it onto our site!). Signal path: Lap steel into a Diamond Comp into a MK3 Drive into a MLJR into a Fender '57 Twin handwired reissue.

Here's another Quicktime clip from NAMM 2011, this time with our friend Mark Goldenberg playing a '52 Tele reissue into a Marquis boost, followed by our 'mystery drive', followed by a MLJR into a Fender '57 Twin handwired reissue.
