The legendary Echoplex tape echo provided the echo and delay sound for countless tracks from the 60's and 70's including many by Led Zeppelin. This Catalinbread pedal aims to reproduce the sound of the vintage tabletop machine in a compact, pedalboard-friendly format…and this new for 2017 Catalinbread Belle Epoch Deluxes takes the original pedal up to the next level! The Deluxe honors the EP-3 lineage by faithfully reproducing the original EP-3 specifications part for part – the only things missing are the record and playback heads – with a 24-bit high-fidelity digital delay line taking the place of the tape cartridge. Exact circuitry reproduction of the 22v power rail (running off a standard 9vDC power supply) helps to achieve that expansive plugged-into-the-wall sound. The JFET preamp (later EP-3 spec), mixer stage, and high gain silicon transistor-based record and playback amplifiers and feedback loop lends to the big, warm feel expected from these legendary musical devices. Catalinbread’s addition of the expression pedal control over delay time, delay playback head volume, and even rotary speed and filter sweep behaviors expands the legacy of the Echoplex as a performance instrument. Then they went further and added a momentary footswitch for echo oscillation, tunable via an internal trimpot, for even more sonic potential that even the originals did not possess! This is a great delay pedal with a ton of user-friendly features that are a must-have for any delay aficionado!
