The Catalinbread Echorec has been in the making for several years! This multi-tap delay is based around the legendary Binson Echorec, an arcane tube echo which incorporated 4 playback heads and a spinning magnetic drum as its recording medium. The Binson is probably most famously known for Pink Floyd's use of the unit, and has long captivated musicians for both its rhythmic and ambient characteristics.

The Catalinbread Echorec has 12 programs which allow for all combinations of the 4 delay heads (something the original was never capable of.) The original also has a fixed speed, and thus a fixed delay time, while the Catalinbread Echorec can go from 40ms-1000ms. The repeats give you the ability for a single repeat or can go into spaceship feedback. The tone control is very useful, able to be tonally flat or dark and resonant on one side or bright and bubbly on the other. The mix allows for 100% wet or dry signal. Inside the pedal you have the ability to run in true-bypass or trails mode, as well as a trimmer for gain and modulation.

Not only is the Catalinbread Echorec extremely versatile in its controls, the audio path was designed to be big, lush, and even more dynamic in its feel than the original. Catalinbread has always designed pedals with this thought in mind, and continue to make effects that are extensions of your instrument rather than mere boxes at your feet.

Handbuilt in beautiful Portland, Oregon by a mostly caffeine-fueled staff of musicians, gear heads, and artists.

Comments about Catalinbread Echorec Multi-Tap Echo Delay Pedal:

OH MY GOD!! This box is lushness incarnate! I had one of the Binson Echorecs back in the day and this thing comes so close that I can't really tell the difference.

If you know what the original sounds like, you will be very pleased with this box.

    Comments about Catalinbread Echorec Multi-Tap Echo Delay Pedal:

    Great multi tap (2-4 delays or single if you want to be mundane) rhythmic delays up to 1 sec. Great tone control and easy to dial in between slapback and crazy self-oscillation/space ship takeoff!

    It is also touch sensitive for incredible dynamics and works before or after fuzz/OD-- intended to work before the amp like the original and has a preamp with adjustable gain that can be 'always on'.

    Running this into SFT or DLSIII pedals or others sounds phenomenal!
