Binson-Echorex resurrected.
Vujekvasyl, 04.10.2020
I am great fan of Echorec replicas. I own vst plugins which do "Echorec" from which the best is Audiority Echoes. I never owned the real thing (I gues noone does theese days) but from what I can see on YouTube Catalinbread is very, very close to the original. Espesially the "swell" funcion which is not exactly feedback is recreated very faithfuly. It does to the sound what does rubber to the pencil: it "smears" the sounds so they sound like reverb a little bit. This differenciates Echorec from tape echoes. All in all very good pedal. It just could be a little bit prettier. The original Echorec was very sexy with classy enclosure and vintage knobs plus flashing green tube-light. The Catalinbreaed is nothing like this; it could use a flashing green led indicating the tempo but it's constant flash. So are the knobs and the chassis; rather cheap looking and it's a big pitty.

Sehr vielseitiges Echo/Delay!
Igor171, 27.01.2016
EINSATZ: Zunächst mal zum Einsatz des Geräts: Ich suchte schon lange nach einem Echo/Delay, das gut die Tape-Echo-Sounds der Instro-Bands (The Atlantics z.B. aber auch das ganze Eleki- und Rautalanka-Zeug) der frühen 60er Jahre emuliert. Es sollte Pedalgröße haben und verschiedene rhythmische Muster der Wiederholungen haben, um den schönen smoothen Echoeffekt zu bekommen.
Ich benutze es in einer instrumentalen Surfband mit/neben einer Tube-Reverb-Unit für cleane bis leicht angedreckte Sounds. Also bezieht sich meine Bewertung nicht auf z.B. U2/Indie-Delay-Sound-Teppiche und High-Gain-Lead-Sounds mit Stotter-Delay etc.

POSITIVES:
+ Das Allerwichtigste: Klingt sehr gut.
+Der Sound ist warm aber nicht dumpf. Der Tone-Regler arbeitet sehr gut, so dass man den Klang der Repeats super seinem Geschmack anpassen kann.
+ Die rhythmischen-Muster der Delay-Repeats mit 4 emulierten Tape-Heads lassen keine Wünsche übrig. Anpassung an jeden beliebigen Rhythmus ist möglich, um eine smoothem Echosound zu bekommen.
+ Das Gerät ist hochwertig verarbeitet.
+ Kleines Gehäuse und dennoch hat man alle wichtigen Regler außen angebracht, so dass kein nerviges Klicken durch Menüs (s. Modelling-Pedale) oder Abrufen von sekundären Funktionen durch Drücken irgendwelcher Schalterkombinationen (s. Strymon El Capistan) notwendig ist.
+ Im Gehäuse sind noch Trimpots für Modulation der Repeats und Gain des integrierten Preamps, die man nach Gusto anpassen kann.
+ Mit einem internen Schalter kann man zusätzlich festlegen, ob das Gerät im true bypass Modus arbeitet oder, ob der Preamp immer aktiv ist.
+ 9-18V Betrieb
+ Meiner Meinung nach wertet der Preamp den Sound unauffällig auf, macht alles etwas (bei dezenter Gaindosierung) dynamischer ohne Matsch zu produzieren.
Aber das ist etwas sehr Geschmackabhängiges, was jeder für sich testen bzw. entscheiden muss.

NEGATIVES:
- Der Mix-Poti ist sehr temperamentvoll auf dem ersten Drittel des Regelweges. Kleine Veränderungen bewirken da sehr große Sprünge im
Dry/Wet-Mix. Daher ist dieser Poti etwas fummelig zu bedienen. Daher kommt mein Punktabzug.

Alles in Allem ein tolles Echopedal. Der Preis ist schon ziemlich heftig, aber in Anbetracht der Vielseitigkeit und der Klangqualität geht das schon in Ordnung. Ob und wie nahe das Pedal nun an das originale Echorec kommt, kann ich nicht beurteilen, weil ich das Original nie hatte. Mir ist es eigentlich auch egal, denn das Pedal tut genau das was ich wollte und gesucht habe.

Cheers!

ECHOREC
Oita, 15.09.2017
Kvalitní a zajímavý delay s ¨irokou paletou nastavení. V?rn? kopíruje originál Binson. Ovládání jednotlivých typ? zapojení hlav echa je trochu ne¨ikovné - po?ák plynule p?echází na 12 ti nastaveních a není pevn? v ka¸dé pozici. Dal¨í minus je v ur?itém ruchu na pozadí který je sice slabý a le je tam i v zapojení true bypass. Zvukov? velmi originální, hodí se spí¨ na v?t¨í echa, ambient, plochy atd..

ECHOREC : le must
29.09.2016
Oui, rien à redire au niveau du son et des possibilités. Ne vous fiez pas à l'adjectif Vintage, car si effectivement la reproduction des chambres d'échos Binson, Echolette, et autres Dynacord est bluffante (je les ai utilisées toutes, en leur temps), on tire de cette Echorec des possibilités très actuelles également, et la qualité Catalinbread ne failli pas, avec une construction exemplaire et des réglages "off" supplémentaires comme la marque nous habitue.
Comme chaque fois, l'envoi de Thomann et l?emballage ont été parfaits.
