Analog-like Echo

New for Feb 2018 - now available with the True Bypass/Tails dual switch daughterboard. Note: this option has a top-edge DC socket, and the footswitches are different heights - no biggy eh? Only standard bypass available for now, no OptoPuss option.

Like its not-so-distant cousin, the Echo Blue Delay, this is a PT2399-based digital delay with an analog direct signal path. As such you'll get pretty much more of the same - a natural-sounding delay with the warmth of a vintage tape echo. First repeat is clean, subsequent repeats start to darken and degrade. A great alternative to more clinical devices - this has soul. After spending some time with this fella we're of the opinion this is a little cleaner and brighter than the EBD, and the addition of a Tone control gives you a few more sonic possibilities. Short slap-back is especially fun.

No FuzzDog dirt control on this one though, so if you want to get really messy with your repeats then the EBD is mos def still the way to go.

Delay time is between 25 - 600ms, and with a current draw of under 30mA you can have top notch groovy delay on the board without eating up too much juice.

If you opt for vertical-mount pots they have round shafts, so you'll need knobs that fix with a set screw. You can wire up 'normal' splined shaft pots if you prefer.

There's an extra pad on the board to enable easy incorporation of a modulation circuit, but you'll have to sort out your own favourite LFO for that.

Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.

Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.
