PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Very good example of this solid state Echoplex just back from a full service. In excellent working order and good condition. These early transistor machines are highly sought-after for their preamp sound (just ask Jimmy Page or Eddie Van Halen)

We love Echoplexes, whether solid state or valve (we also have a couple of valve EP2s just back from servicing – get in touch if they’re not on the site) – a simple interface and a great sound – for us they are simply the best vintage single head tape delays you can buy.

Condition is very good with usual signs of age and use; some scuffs to the tolex; evidence of a non-original handle being previously-fitted; the instruction sheet inside the lid is a photocopy; the original plastic tape cover is missing. However, the cartridge has been rewound with new tape and this Echoplex is sounding excellent – great repeats and of course, that fabulous guitar preamp section.

Mike Battle was involved in the design of these machines – he was unhappy with the sound (so much so that he sold his stake in the company), but plenty of 70s and 80s musicians thought otherwise. In particular the sound of the FET-based preamp found favour with such guitar luminaries as Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Brian May, Tom Verlaine and Andy Summers. 

Naturally it’s a 110 US voltage unit – we can supply a high quality UK-made transformer if required.
