Updating a classic design with longer delay time and increased reliability.

Mojo Hand FX has launched the Dream Mender, a take on the ‘70s classic analogue bucket-brigade delay format.
The pedal condenses down the original controls of the format to just three knobs, with the central blend knob increasing the mix of the delayed signal while left of noon. This same knob then begins to add modulation to the trails past this setting – while a push-button in the middle of the control cluster selects between chorus or vibrato.
The delay knob sets delay time, which Mojo Hands FX notes is now ‘almost double’ that of the original bucket-brigade units. The final control manages the delay’s feedback – and at max, will let the pedal descend into oscillation.
Mojo Hand FX also notes that the actual delays are much clearer than its vintage counterparts, and it won’t need its Bucket Brigade chip recalibrating at any point.
The pedal was initially launched as a limited run of 50 numbered pedals, but Mojo Hand FX has relaunched this second batch, now complete with a clearcoated brushed finish.
The Dream Mender lists for $159. Find out more at mojohandfx.com.
