Diamond Pedals Memory Lane is the original of two pedals of this type that Diamond has released.  The pedal is an analog delay with a variety of possible tones.  It has standard 1/4 inch connections and isn't in rack mountable form.


Using the Diamond Pedals Memory Lane isn't complicated at all.  The parameters that you've got to work with include delay, EQ, feedback level, depth, speed, and mix.  You've also got a tempo tap feature with a button for it, and a switch to choose between either mod or tempo for this button.  If you have any experience with delay pedals, you won't have any problems figuring this one out, and even if you don't I think you should be able to figure everything out.  I don't believe that a manual is necessary as I haven't ever felt a need to look for one.


In my opinion, the sounds possible with the Diamond Pedals Memory Lane are pretty great.  It definitely has the warmth and analog feel that you expect from an analog delay pedal, which is a sound that I always seek with a delay pedal.  You have a good amount of control over your tone with all of the different parameters available, which is great because the makes the pedal extremely versatile.  Having the modulation section with speed and depth is unique to a delay pedal, but offers some really cool possibilities.  I've used the amp mostly with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb for recording, so I'm definitely getting an accurate read on what the pedal sounds like.


Aside from the price, the Diamond Pedals Memory Lane is nearly a perfect analog delay pedal.  Even taking the price into consideration, when compared with some of the other analog delay pedals out there, it falls right in line.  If you're looking for a top notch analog delay pedal, you should definitely try this one out in addition to a slew of other ones available from the likes of companies like Moog and MXR, as they both have some great pedals as well.  I'd encourage anyone interested to go down to their local shop and try them all out if possible to see what will work best for you!
