Product Description

UPDATE April 5 2022: Much progress has been made on the rebuild - see new photos added to the listing, and you can also hear a first test of the incredible wet-only mod in this demo.

We now are ready to offer this Binson Echorec 2 T7E for preorder - includes full restoration/rebuild, super slow varispeed motor and our brand new valve buffered wet-only output mod. We also have a clean Baby Binson for preorder. Given the amount of work and parts required to get them to our standard these will be the only Soundgas Binsons ready before autumn 2022.

The amount of time, parts and modifications we are putting into Binsons eclipses any found elsewhere. As well as the donor machine shown, we will be using a mint, period correct metal case, and other parts, to create a truly stunning example. We will also break another to make a good set of original 60s heads (which once relapped have superior performance to heads from later machines or new replacements).

All our machines are completely stripped of old wiring/components and rebuilt from the ground up for optimum performance. The new valve buffered wet-only output mod is our latest upgrade and offers a significant improvement in signal quality.

All this comes at a cost, but with a Soundgas Binson you truly get what you pay for - the very highest possible quality machine - as near to a new (but substantially improved/upgraded) sixties Echorec as you could wish for.

Will be supplied overhauled and working flawlessly with our super slow varispeed and wet-only modifications. All Soundgas Binson restorations are completed in house by our senior echo tech Max Dawson and come with 12 months' warranty (UK/EU/USA/Canada only) plus lifetime tech support for our customers. Supplied complete with our Binson manual and an original case in excellent order; Tony is on hand to answer your Binson questions prior to ordering, or in the future.


The Super-Slow Varispeed Motor offers the full functionality of a standard Binson but with the advantage of being able to tempo match the repeats. Binsons have fixed-speed motors which will run fast in the USA (unless they are specific export models) due to the different mains frequency, which is something Pink Floyd discovered on the eve of their first US tour. The tempo of their songs was determined by the Echorecs' repeat patterns so their tech spent a sleepless night moving all the heads to compensate. In addition to allowing tempo-matching to the song, and longer echoes (allowing a Baby Binson to achieve similar echo lengths to an Echorec 2), the super-slow motor offers the option of much longer, darker, dirtier repeats. This can get properly gnarly when pushed into distortion at slow speed. Please note that at the very slowest speeds there is very little fidelity or feedback: this should be viewed as a bonus for special effects use rather than more traditional guitar echoes. A control knob is placed on the side of the machine near the sockets for motor speed.

Wet-only output requires an extra socket (located on the side) and is for use with a mixing console or effects loop.


<span style="font-family: merriweather, georgia, times new roman, serif;">This shot is of the machine we will be starting with, however the case and many other parts will be swapped in order to produce a machine that functions to an exceptionally high standard, and has the looks to match. Please get in touch if you need more information.</span>
