Moog MF-104Z Analogue delay

Is this worth getting? Seems pretty pricy.... $700-$800?

You can find them used for around 500. That's what I paid for mine. Incredible pedal.

From something I said just the other day on another forum regarding my Moog MF-104SD Super Delay:

...the Moog excels in creating a delay voice that is out front, present, and with character. It is great as a lead voice - not one that sits back. Using it is like playing an instrument - it begs to be used real-time. Doing octave jumps with the length switch is fun. The drive sure can be tasty. The aux loop is so addicting - patching in other pedals and rack units can lead to some great tones.

But to cap it all off - the CV control. Few delays offer this kind of power. Driving it from a Moog CP-251 is just the beginning. Using a MIDI->CV box you can drive the Moog such that it can become a user-controllable modulated delay.

...make no mistake, the Moog Delay is not to be missed if you are a joyful delay slut like me. :D


cheers,
Ian

Agreed.

Very much so.

To recap, the MF-104z is one of the best BBD delays I ever laid my hands on.

Anyone know what the difference is between all the Moogerfooger delays? I've read on the interweb of about three diff models but can't remember the model numbers & delay times etc.

Tell me about it.

Although I don't own any of them I have been seriously tempted by the Moogerfooger line. If nothing else they have that quality about them that looks and feels wonderful.

I too am sooo tempted! I even had the thought of selling everything non Moog and just collecting Moogerfoogers instead.

I want them all!

....but then there's common sense.

btw, in my opinion, the general direction of this thread could've stayed in 'General Synthesizers'. But what do I know?

It really is a great device. It has a warm darkness that others don't. One of my fave Moogers is the 102 ring modulator. It produces great tremolo as well as the signature ring mod weirdness. It also has an LFO out.
