Gurus Echosex 3° (Hi Voltage preamp, Small box, with Tap Tempo)  12V Psu Included. Evolution of the legendary Echosex 2° with 260 V tube preamp and TAP TEMPO.

The NEW Echosex 3° reproduces a single Head of the vintage Binson Echorec but with the ability to move that head to change the delay time like a modern delay with the same vintage sound!, Gurus has improved the preamp section which now runs at 262Volts (Just like the vintage Binson!) this makes for huge headroom, results in accentuating the harmonics. This improved input section is now impossible to saturate even with strongest signals from powerful humbuckers, active basses, Fx loops or Keyboards/Synths… The tone is pristine and dynamic, Gone is the “hiss” found in longer delay time settings however there’s no loss of the “dark” character of the vintage “Tape” or “Magnetic-Drum” echo units.

True bypass with golden pin relay, the unit is super quiet with no perceptible noise Plus the slightly smaller box and new “top jack” configuration will make for an easy fit into any pedalboard.

Set the level of the repeats.

Set the delay time, increasing counterclockwise. From 35 up to 730ms.

Simulates the wearing out of the mechanical parts, adding a beautiful 3D modulation until noon, up to a slight random pitch shifting at max value.

TONE: Affects only the repeats like in the old Italian Echo, getting it brighter or darker, depending on how the feedback is settled.

LENGTH OF SWELL: feedback control. from 1 single repeat to infinite and self-oscillation.

BYPASS: on/off of the effect.

TAP TEMPO: Sets the delay time, working in conjunction of control 2, the LED shows the bpm as selected by the footswitch.
