Product Description

Rapidly becoming a modern mix classic: a Telefunken Echomixer for sale serviced and modified - ready to put to work in the studio. Sought-after by award-winning producers, engineers and artists.

A testament to early sixties German engineering and build quality (although with the age of this tech we are having to use two of these for every one fully working one we produce now...).

This unit has been serviced and earthed for electrical safety and sounds fabulous: these units have a particularly smooth unspring-like sound when used lightly.

It can be a very clean-sounding unit but overloading the inputs can work wonders as you push the germanium circuitry.

Channel A is for unprocessed signals, Channels B & C pass through the spring reverb.

Please note that this is a very sensitive spring unit and will need to be positioned away from vibrations and knocks.

===

Of course it sounds great with guitars - but we've found it really shines as a studio effect with whatever you put through it: keys, synths, vocals, loops, beats... it has a character that is very had to replicate digitally and sounds great in the mix - almost plate-like (and of course you can always give it a little kick if things are getting too polite during the mix...).

Try using a little tape delay before sending to a spring reverb, or use a digital/plug-in reverb and send the wet output from that to the spring to add character.

Condition

Very clean for a 1960s unit. Has a few scratches to the finish but nothing serious. Click on the photos to zoom in and see more shots (note that the wet only switch had not been added when the photos were taken - it will be on the rear panel).

Voltage Information

220/240v unit. A step-up transformer will be required for use on 110/120v supplies. Please ask if you need advice on what to use. We do not recommend using cheap, generic Chinese mains transformers.
