  • Cheap tape echo

    So I really want a tape echo.

    I've done my research but most the stuff I've come up with is 200 plus. I'm looking for something that sounds similar to the tape on the dd20 with the long washed out trails and whatnot but with a way smaller footprint. Looking to spend a hundred fifty max new or used.

    Any thoughts

    Sometimes you can find one of these cheap. I have had a couple, they are neato.

    I assume you're meaning a tape echo sim. I would look for a used Line 6 Echo Park (or the Behringer clone if you don't care about it being plastic). The tape mode sounds sweet and the modulation on it makes tape slippage and flutter sounds. Real cool.

    Or if you can find a used RE-20, go for that.

    I'm a moron. Forgot you said smaller than the DD-20...

        catalinbread has a new delay pedal based on the echoplex coming out soon.   i bet it'll be real nice.

        The Echo Park is not modelled on the DL-4. Much better character to it than DL-4's tape.

        The SMMH has a nice stereo modulation mode, but not a tape sim mode.

    Working...
