Moog Music has announced a limited-production release of the MF-104M Super Delay, based on Moog’s analog delay, the MF-104M.
- The MF-104M Super Delay features over 1.2 seconds of ‘vintage’ analog delay time, provided by 6 NOS (new old stock) Panasonic Bucket Brigade chips.
- The power supply, bias, and rail generating circuitry have all been improved from the original model, for greater sound quality and reduced microphonics.
- An Emphasis/De-Emphasis circuit has been added for reduced noise.
- Additionally, the delay-loop level matching circuitry from the 500 Series analog delay has been included for maximized feedback and mix stability.
“In 2005, we released the MF-104SD, of which only 250 units were ever produced,” said Cyril Lance, Moog Music Chief Engineer. “The new MF-104M Super Delay utilizes the identical vintage Bucket Brigade chips found in the classic MF-104SD, faithfully delivering a vintage grittiness that’s extremely musical.”
The MF-104M Super Delay includes all of the features found in the original MF-104M analog delay, including MIDI control of every feature on and under the hood, a 6 Waveshape LFO, tap tempo of delay time and LFO rate, spillover mode, and the traditional short/long delay switch for bright, articulate 50ms-600ms trails, and darker 100ms-1200ms trails.
Like the other models in the range of Moogerfoogers, the MF-104M Super Delay is housed in a rugged steel chassis with wood sides and utilizes CV/Expression inputs for external control of Time, Rate, Feedback, Amount, and Mix parameters. A delay feedback Insert is also available for adding external effects to the delay line.

A run of 560 MF-104M Super Delays is now available at Moog Music dealers, at a suggested retail price of $799 US. More information is available at the Moog Music website, along with dealer information.
