Among the pedals a friend gave me for my birthday was one of these. Eager to see what I could do with it, I immediately took the back off to see what was inside. Much to my delight, it seemed to follow the basic design of a traditional analog delay pedal, a la DM-3, Aqua Puss, or AD-9. Much to my dismay, however, it used a 3208 delay chip, which has 2048 stages of delay; half of what the aforementioned pedals use. So, I ordered a Coolaudio V3205, which is a 4096-stage chip that is pin-for-pin replaceable for the 3208. Chip arrived today, so I quickly unsoldered and removed the 3208 and installed the 3205. Fired it up and beautiful analog delay of reasonable length poured out. Much more usable pedal now.
