EP-103

Online

Features:

• Vintage Echoplex EP-3 tape echo warmth and modulation
• Age control varies delay tone from pristine to dark and dirty
• 40-750ms of delay time

The EP103 Echoplex Delay is the size of a Phase 90, and it delivers the EP-3's legendary tones with a simple control interface and a hi-fi all-analog dry path. The Delay control sets the time between repeats - from 4 to 750ms - the Sustain control sets the number of repeats, and the Volume control sets the output level of your repeats.

Where the sound of this pedal really shines, though, is in Age mode. By default, your pedal performs as a perfectly-calibrated, factory-fresh tape echo machine would - bright and clear tape with subtle wow and flutter modulation. A quick push of the Volume knob lets you "age" the sound of your repeats, darkening the tone, upping the tape saturation (distortion), and increasing modulation and tape distress as you turn the knob clockwise.

The EP103's delay signal gets the same tonal conditioning that the EP101 Echoplex Preamp provides, while the dry path is left untouched. For the full EP-3 experience, put that secret sauce on your dry signal by running the EP101 in front of the EP103.

The Echoplex Delay also features tap tempo functionality, for up to 4 seconds of delay time, when you hook up an M199 MXR Tap Tempo Switch. The dry path is all analog with Constant Headroom Technologyproviding a full 20 volts of headroomand a choice of true relay or trails bypass. The EP103 can be set for 100% wet mode along with stereo input and output modes. No tape cartridges required!

The sound of this pedal is just wonderful. Especially its modulation, which adds a dimensional expression on the amp. It reminds of the EHX Memory Man, but in a smaller package and with the details from the real Echoplex. It is also friendly with other delays - I use it together with a Catalinbread Echorec (another monster pedal) and surprisingly they produce a "multi-tap delay" in miniature, absolutely gorgeous resulting sound. This Echoplex is highly recommended!

I've had this pedal for a while now, and think its pretty underrated. It just has a vintage and natural sound to it.
