A very cool Japanese 4 head tape echo – a Mirano Echo Chamber T-4 for sale serviced and in great working order.
This Mirano-badged echo from Japan’s Hawk Technical Works has a similar features to the Hawk HE-2150A, but with the benefit of an extra replay head. There’s a small backlit meter and inputs/outputs are all front-mounted and via quarter inch jack sockets; this, along with an absence of phono sockets suggests this was aimed at the more serious professional user. It may not have the instant appeal of the 2150’s spinning reels, but the repeats are of a very high quality: this is a seriously-good tape echo. Messing with the tape speed on the shortest delay setting yields some unusual psychedelic warble effects, whilst on longer repeat settings, this echo shows its class. An uncommon and excellent tape delay.
We landed a selection of these vintage Japanese machines recently – read all about them in our Hawk/Mirano tape echo and spring reverb blog post.
Here’s a quick demo of the Mirano T-4 we posted to our Instagram:
