So here we have the Dawner Prince Boonar – another brand new take on the magic of the mighty Binson Echorec. As fully paid-up Binson fanatics this is the pedal that put Dawner Prince on our radar and we immediately had to get hold of one to try.
The Boonar simulates the full multi-head combinations of a Binson in Repeat or Swell modes. There’s an internal dip switch which allows you to switch between “original” and “modern” voicings as well as the ‘Drum Age’ control so you can dial in the sound that suits your taste.
I’ve been using mine and absolutely loving it for those multi-head and swell settings that I can’t do with my original Echosex 2º.
This listing is for the latest version.
Below is what Zoran has to say about it and a video demo. If you have any questions please get in touch.
Here also is Tone Report’s excellent Boonar review.

From Dawner Prince:
When we decided to revive one of the finest magnetic echo-delay machines ever built, we knew it will be everything but an easy task. Months of research, in-depth study, development and fine tuning were needed to bring it back in all its fame.
Boonar™ is an effects pedal precisely designed to deliver sound and feel of the legendary Binson Echorec, a multi-tap magnetic drum echo unit. Everything is in there and more: from thick, juicy tube tone, glorious multi-dimensional echo repeats melted with haunting reverb decays, variable delay time up to a full second and separate playback heads switching system to an amazing and distinctive external looks dominated by a gold finish and green pulsating “magic-eye” level indicator, all packed in an incredibly compact stompbox form.
Boonar shares the same analog signal path as original Echorec but we used high voltage driven FETs as tube emulators and replaced magnetic memory drum with a DSP unit. We developed a special DSP code that faithfully replicates all the characteristics of the actual Binson memory system that we named a virtual magnetic drum.
Reveal an authentic Binson sound and enjoy in magical echoes of the past!
