The Electro-Harmonix Stereo Memory Man With Hazarai is the newest pedal in the Memory Man family of delay pedals. However, this is a digital pedal and not analog like the other Memory Man pedals. The pedal also has a built in 30 second looper as well as all sorts of versatile effects. The pedal has two 1/4" inputs and outputs and can be powered up by a nine volt power supply that comes with it. It isn't a rack mountable delay unit as it is foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

Using the Electro-Harmonix Stereo Memory Man With Hazarai isn't too hard, but there are a lot of features to learn if you're really going to dive in deep with this. As far as your main parameters go, you've got knobs for blend, decay, filter, repeats, and delay, as well as to engage Hazarai. There are sections for echo, multi-tap, and deja vu settings, which are different types of delay effects as well as different looping features. The pedal has two buttons - one for bypass and one for tap/record. It will take you a little while to get used to everything that the pedal has to offer, so I'd recommend having the manual around to help speed up the process.

SOUND QUALITY

As far as digital delay pedals go, the Electro-Harmonix Stereo Memory Man With Hazarai has one of the cleanest delay sounds that I've heard. I've used it with a Fender Stratocaster and a 1976 Fender Twin Reverb amp. While it doesn't touch the sound of a Memory Man Deluxe analog delay, for a digital delay there is a lot that you can do, and ton of different sounds that are possible. You can get a lot of traditional clean sounding delays, as well as sweeping and more spacious delay sounds. The pedal also has flanger and chorus tones available as well...

OVERALL OPINION

While this is a much newer pedal than the Line 6 DL-4, it is still a good comparison to make with the Electro-Harmonix Stereo Memory Man With Hazarai. I think that overall I like the EH Stereo Memory Man better, but mostly because the delay sounds are better, not the looping features. I would encourage those interested in a delay and/or looper pedal, I'd highly recommend trying out both pedals to see what you like best, as they're both in the same price range and have a similar make up...
