You missed it!


A slim-line Japanese tape delay that will fit on your pedalboard, very similar to the VOCU VTE-2000 tape echo. For sale in near mint condition and excellent working order, complete with original packaging, manual, 100/120v PSU and a spare tape.

Scroll down for more info. Here’s a demo of the machine for sale (using the 808 we also have available now):

Will accept mic, instrument or line level inputs, has three delay modes – 150-600ms, 500-1600ms and a combination of both short and long heads. Has mix/wet-only switch (Cue/Mix Direct) for use as an effects send, controls for Master Level, Echo Time, Repeat and Echo Level as well as Input Level. The Flutter control engages an off-centre plastic wheel against the pinch roller to introduce extra warble and sense of a machine less well-maintained (the lever will rest at the mid point giving a sensible level of flutter, or can be pushed harder against the pinch roller for momentary bouts of extra warbliness).


Comes with a 15v centre positive power supply that is designed for 100 and 120v supplies. For use on 240v supplies you will either need to plug that into a voltage converter or source a 15v DC centre positive supply for your country’s voltage.

Condition is excellent with minor signs of use/age.

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.
