Restored valve Binson Echorec 2 for sale with varispeed motor and custom finish. Working well and sounding very good indeed following an extensive rebuild.
Preliminary listing – full photos to follow.
The varispeed mod works well – there is some mechanical noise from the new motor at higher speeds and the repeats become much darker and less prone to feedback at very slow speeds (the speed control range is wide – this allows some unusual effects).
This machine has had a significant amount of time from the tech during the restoration and is looking great, but please note that this is a vintage unit, not NOS. The heads have been refaced and the drum rewound, all boards cleaned and rewired where necessary and the chassis stripped back to bare metal and refinished. It is working superbly, but is a vinatge machine so some crackle/noise is possible from the pots/switches. The custom powder-coated finish is very distinctive and classy – a great and unique looking machine
First demo below – further down are demos of a previous machine we sold.

Naturally, the axe-slingers amongst you will be drooling over the way these machines languidly exude classic Dave Gilmour/Pink Floyd timbres, but we’re hot under the collar about the way this one reacts to abuse: feed it a hot signal from a drum machine, crank up the input gain and swoon at the rich creamy tube overdrive and filthy distortion on the repeats. Tony’s no stranger to Binson abuse, and he’s been getting busy discovering just how good this one sounds when pushed – demos are doubtless already appearing on our Instagram feed by now.
