Valve (tube) Binson Echorec B2 disc echo in superb condition and excellent working order: serviced, restored and calibrated.
With original case in good condition but with damage around one hinge.
Soundgas are vintage echo experts – we specialise in Binsons, Copicats, Rolands, and Echoplexes.
In stunning condition following a complete restoration/rebuild and with a NOS recording drum – almost impossible to find at any price now. With original wooden carry case in good condition but with repaired damage around one hinge – the case should be viewed as being of cosmetic use rather than practical. The metal top cover has also been repainted but the colour match is very close to the original.
Selling on behalf of a good customer, this stunning valve B2 has had the works from our Binson tech, including full mechanical and electrical rebuild, a brand new old stock drum, relapped heads and repolished face and plexi cover. The overall condition is superb – an excellent example of this less-common Binson.
It has been thoroughly tested and fine-tuned to our specification. We ensure that our Binson buyers get a machine in top operational condition which should give many years good service.
We guarantee complete satisfaction.
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 £369. 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.
We can't stop here, this is bat country! Our next auction (November 22nd) features some head-turning, show-stopping synths, however we also wanted to put the spotlight...
