Based around very carefully selected and very rigorously tested PT2399 delay chips, the Wampler Faux Tape Echo circuit allowed Brian to combine the note clarity of a sophisticated digital delay with an all-analog dry path (unaffected signal) and magnificent all-analog tone-shaping and modulation circuitry.

What does that actually mean for musicians? The answer to that is "everything!" With Wampler's hybrid design approach, you get the best of both worlds - from country slap-back to ambient washes to straight-ahead rock and metal delay. You get note clarity, lower noise, and longer delay times from digital delays. You get the lovely warmth and little, exquisite touches that are usually reserved for analog delays. Nearly every part of the pedal, all of its major functions, are analog. The "delay line" is the only digital part of the signal path. It alone being digital brings clarity and focus to the task in a way that analog delay line chips can't really match.

But everything else, all the absolutely vital filtering to carefully finish the sound is pure analog. Every aspect of the modulation that gives the Wampler Faux Tape Echo pedal a unique function and tone and makes it desirable for people who want their delay tone to sound as good as tape delay units but without all the maintenance, supplies, and hassle? Totally analog. Your all-important fundamental dry tone is 100% analog, too.

This new version of the Faux Tape Echo takes everything great about the original, and adds to it that much-requested tap tempo functionality that users have asking for, as well as Brian's new idea in emulating the elusive and beautiful character that people look for in classic tape echo units.

This is one of my favorite Tape Echo pedals that I've owned. it sounds fantastic and extremely versatile. It sounds fantastic too. but then again so does pretty much everything Wampler. I would definitely suggest this pedal to anyone looking for a great reverb pedal. This is a real hands on product review from [email protected] Sam Ash Indianapolis

It took five minutes to know that this was going to replace my Line Six DL 4. I really wanted something easier to dial in and that took up less space on my board. Tap tempo was a key feature, so after several months of review reading and YouTube demos, I decided on this over other delays. I'm so glad that I did. I don't have anything agains the DL 4, or any of my other delays, but I loved the tone out of this thing right out of the box. My only con (So far) is that when taping the tempo, the flashing light stays with the knob setting, so it will be out of sync with the actual delay tempo. That's not a deal breaker, but could take some getting used to, especially when that light was my reminder to change settings on the DL4.
