Looks like they are around $125 on the web(new). Anyone using one?
The lead player in my band just picked up a Carbon Copy for a steal ($80)!! Brand new, they run $150 and for roughly $100 on ebay. They sound absolutely outstanding, very warm and the tone just gets nicely saturated as it repeats. The "Mod" button is a nice addition as well. He pulls off incredible Jerry like things with it....afterall, its more or less a modern day version of the MXR Jerry used. The delay he replaced with the Carbon Copy was actually a Boss DD3, and the difference is like "night and day"! One other thing I'll mention (though is obviously the least important feature of a pedal), is the paint job! The dark green paint sparkles like crazy and looks amazing! I highly suggest picking one up!
I recently put my BBE Two Timer up for sale in favor of something a little better. Thought about getting a Carbon Copy, and me being the Bobby player, I know that pedal is more than capable of doing what I wanted it to...some great slap back. However, I decided to go vintage, and bought an Ibanez AD-9, cant wait for it to arrive! To me, it's got more of a Bobby like vibe.
