PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is quite simply a stunning 70s stereo tape echo. You need this. You want this. This is not just another Space Echo with some slightly tweaked features.

We’re big fans of much of the output from the Japanese producers of the Hawk (aka Mirano) gear but with this HE-2250 they definitely did something special. The only issue is that we can’t easily grab a quick demo that really shows what it can do because Instagram videos (where we put up our quick try-outs of new gear) are in mono. However, we have put one below to give some idea, and we’ve recorded some stereo audio-only demos it and if you want to hear them then get in touch.

We’ll add some more information about this machine soon – the “mirage” and “reverse” functions could do with some explanation. But this is a very well designed and built, and superb-sounding, piece of kit.

And not only that but it has the looks to match and the condition is superb – pretty remarkable for a unit from the 70s.

It has had a full service, followed by some thorough testing from Tony (before we had to prise him away from it).

  • It is a 100v Japanese model and needs to be run at 100v only
  • A step-down transformer is required for use on North American or European supplies..
  • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers – for 220/240v mains we can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required; for use on 120v supplies we recommend a converter like this.
