The Catalinbread Echorec has been in the making for several years, and is finally here!  I fell in love with the Echorec sound years ago when a few vintage units came thru' the shop here.  Nic and the crew at Catalinbread have outdone themselves with this pedal.  It is everything you can want out of a vintage echorec with the addition of lower noise floor and much more delay time.  It is simply beautiful.

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 always design pedals with this thought in mind, and continue to make effects that are extensions of your instrument rather than mere boxes at your feet.
