Very versatile echo / delay!
Igor171, 27.01.2016
APPLICATION: First of all, I was looking for an echo / delay, which was good for the tape echo sounds of the instro-bands (The Atlantics, but also the whole eleki- and Rautalanka-stuff) of the early 60s Emulated. It should have pedal size and have different rhythmic patterns of repetitions to get the beautiful smooth echo effect.
I use it in an instrumental surfboard with / beside a tube reverb unit for cleane to slightly tuneful sounds. So my rating does not refer to eg U2 / Indie delay sound carpets and high-gain lead sounds with stutter delay etc.

+ The most important thing: Sounds very good.
+ The sound is warm but not dull. The tone control works very well, so you can adjust the sound of the repeats super to its taste.
+ The rhythmic patterns of the delay repeats with 4 emulated tape heads leave nothing to be desired. Adaptation to any rhythm is possible to get a smoothem echo sound.
+ The device is high quality processed.
+ Small case, but you have all the important controls on the outside, so you do not need to click through menus (see modeling pedals) or get secondary functions by pressing any switch combinations (see Strymon El Capistan).
+ In the case are still trimpots for modulating the repeats and gain of the integrated preamp, which can be adapted to Gusto.
+ An internal switch can be used to determine whether the device is operating in true bypass mode or whether the preamp is always active.
+ 9-18V operation
+ In my opinion, the preamp evaluates the sound unobtrusively, makes everything (with a subtle Gaindosierung) more dynamic without mud.
But this is something very taste-dependent, which everyone must test for themselves or decide.

- The mix pot is very temperamental on the first third of the control path. Small changes cause very big jumps in the
Dry / wet mix. Therefore, this poti is somewhat fiddly to use. Therefore comes my point deduction.

All in all a great Echopedal. The price is already quite violent, but considering the versatility and the sound quality is already in order. Whether and how close the pedal now comes to the original Echorec, I can not judge because I never had the original. I really do not care, because the pedal does exactly what I wanted and wanted.
