70s Japanese tape echo employing 8-track cartridges.

Serviced and working well. Note that the echoes on this are not clean – this is old technology and has its limitations even after servicing; however, there is plenty of character to the sounds that this machine produces. It distorts well when overdriven, and you can control the volume of the echo and the dry signal of each of the two inputs independently.

Part of the Hawk range we are big fans of – there’s usually more Hawks in the Spring Reverb and Tape Echo sections of the site.

We will add a demo of this unit soon but if you need to hear something in the meantime then get in touch.

In excellent cosmetic condition with very few signs of wear across the machine. 

It is a 100v Japanese model and will run fine on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use.

  • A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU.
  • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.
  • For sales in UK/EU the price will include VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number – please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.
