Wampler Faux Tape Echo

Product Description

Wampler Pedals

As close as we could come to a tape echo machine… the faux tape echo is basically the analogecho (which is a favorite of many guitarists such as Brad Paisley) crossed with a unique circuit the speeds up and slows down the echos, just like a real tape echo. It isn’t modulating like other ‘tape echo’ emulations though… many of them sound like a chorus pedal in the background… while that is a cool sound in itself, a tape echo’s ‘flutter’ created modulation tones by the recording tape slightly speeding up and slowing down – that’s why we duplicated the modulation circuit to do the same thing.

If you are tired of wimpy sterile delay tones or just simply wish that your analog delay could get brighter, the faux echo is your pedal! While the echoes are created digitally, the base signal is all analog and is extremely transparent. The echoes are not sterile and brittle like a digital delay though – they are big, full and FAT.

Max delay time: about 600ms
