This Vocu is for sale in NOS mint condition, boxed with instructions. A slim-line compact Japanese tape delay that will fit on your pedalboard, similar to the Hiwatt tape echo. For sale serviced and in excellent working order.

NOTE: Photos are of the item for sale. This unit is currently being serviced and will be available to ship soon.

Vocu stands for Vivid Output and Capable Unit - catchy! Cool and compact little tape delay - perfect for a (large) pedalboard). Sounds good and works well - uses the same loops as the Roland Space echo range - a full-featured tape echo that's a little larger than a paperback book. Instagram demo with our SH-7 below.

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).

CONDITION: Near mint - appears to be NOS/unused. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

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.

Requires a 15v Centre Positive supply.

  • It is a 100v Japanese model
  • A step-down transformer is required in the USA and UK/EU (or just replace the PSU with a correct one for mains).
  • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.
