An early-mid 60s valve (tube) Binson Echorec 2 model T7E disc echo in really excellent condition and superb working order, fully serviced, restored and calibrated.
Our restored Binson Echorecs usually sell within hours. If you are interested in getting one of these machines in excellent working order and backed by our guarantee and aftercare then please contact us now and register your interest.
This unit is undergoing a full service and calibration with our Binson specialist (it has already been rewired) and will arrive back with us in superb working order – we then thoroughly test and fine tune it to our complete satisfaction. We ensure that our Binson buyers get a machine in top operational condition which should give many years good service. We guarantee complete satisfaction. The price you see here is a guide price only – the final price will depend on the work required.
The condition overall is excellent – the case has been refinished at some point but it has been done well.
UPDATE – we now stock the Echosex 2º LTD pedal from Gurus Amps, an Italian-made reincarnation of the Binson Echorec sound in pedal form. Doesn’t do everything a Binson does but the sound is right and… it’s only £379. See our full Echosex listing and video demos here.
Binson Echorecs are amazingly-engineered machines: where a tape echo’s input sound is recorded to tape, on a Binson it is recorded onto a circular spinning disc which has replay heads positioned around it. It is possible to select single and repeating echoes or reverb-like swells – these units have a sound all of their own. They look fantastic at night (or on a darkened stage) with the magic eye valve glowing green and the backlit plexiglass fascia.
Binsons were one of the must-have pieces of equipment for bands in the early sixties, alongside the Fender Stratocaster and Vox AC30. Famously-used and abused by Barrett, Gilmour, Waters and Wright of Pink Floyd in the 60s and early 70s (Echorec 2s are very much in evidence on Live at Pompeii and can be seen on photos from many Floyd live shows), Binsons are increasingly sought-after today by studios, mix engineers and producers for their unique sound: Michael Brauer (Stones, McCartney, Coldplay) famously has an Echorec 2 in his arsenal of vintage delays.
