Tape echoes had been around for a few years when solid-state echo technology appeared in pedal format. The Deluxe version of the Memory Man delay from Electro Harmonix, released in , was the fifth iteration of the Memory Man design, which made its debut in Key to its significance were two additions that made for an organic delay sound – a knob to control the preamp level, and a dedicated knob for the chorus and vibrato effects that had been introduced on the two previous versions of the pedal. Although a delay time of ms is short by modern standards, it was pushing the bucket-brigade chips inside the unit to the limit. Bucket-brigade devices, or BBD for short, are discrete capacitor arrays that were used to pass analogue audio signals before buffer-based digital delays were available.

Matthews, armed with a unique mix of business instinct and technical knowhow, had his professional start in sales at IBM. To many guitarists, the Big Muff Pi, with its large pressed steel chassis and unique name, is the definitive fuzz box to own. An often-replicated design, but never truly duplicated in terms of sonic character, the Big Muff Pi helped launch EHX as a leading contender in the growing world of guitar effect manufacturing. Matthews also has a signed personal check from Carlos Santana, which served as payment for his very own Big Muff Pi in , he recalled in an interview with Premier Guitar. The Big Muff Pi still sells around 3, units a month, according to Matthews, and the LPB-1 boost is a strong seller as well, with EHX still moving around units a month almost 50 years since the product was launched. Together, both products helped launch EHX into a global company that still has their principal assembly and product finishing operations located in Queens; other classic EHX products soon followed. The pedal, like the Small Stone, was developed by Cockerell and was the first flanger that was able to be used on stage, a large technical achievement at the time. The Deluxe Memory Man , released in , essentially puts the hypnotic sounds of early U2 into a single steel box. This time EHX mastered the electronic delay and, over the years, the pedal grew into the Deluxe Memory Man, one of the most sought after and popular pedals of all time. The Memory Man sound is uniquely EHX, and the sonic possibilities of the six knobs are nearly endless.
