Mac DeMarco’s MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay

Mac DeMarco uses the MXR Carbon Copy (both the full-size version and the mini version) as his main delay pedal. He started them very early on, around 2014, and continues using them to this day. Occasionally, he even has two of them on his pedalboard (see photo below).

Mac also noted in an interview with that he only uses the pedals for live gigs, and never used them on any of the studio recordings.

I’ve always used these Carbon Copies – I’ve never used them on a record, but I’ve used them live forever.
