echosex 2 is the gurus amps reissue of the legendary binson echorec the notorious echo unit world-wide known and brought to celebrity by artists like pink floyd which became its embodiment. this is not just
a re-run. we decided to make our up-to-date interpretation without affecting its features but fixing, thanks to the modern technologies, some limits of the original machine like:
we realized the device in a stompbox format, sized for being comfortably placed in a pedalboard.
there is no mechanical part in need of maintenance.
the delay time can be set from 60 to 660ms.
the signal path is fully analog and tube-state, we recreate that òbinson systemó made of tube preamp/head simulation/filters.
thanks to the dip-switches on side panel, you can set in&out levels from -10db to +4 as in the original binson echorec, to better fit high output humbuckers, active guitars, active bass, keyboards, drum, mic
preamp and whatever you want to plug into; and programming the bypass button to choose if you want its stops delays or fade out when bypass it.
every original binson was unique, because of the different wearing of the mechanical parts based on their usage. this led to a very specific feature: when the mechanical parts were worn, especially the rubber
wheel pushing the disc, a sort of modulation in the delay time arouse. for binson-sound lovers, that was a really distinctive and sought after feature so, we replicated and synthetized that peculiarity in
echosex 2 with a single control called òage of damageó according to the nice and genuine binson naming. tone control only affects repeats, in conjunction with the feedback control which sets
quantity up to an endless self-oscillating level and works on the brightness of each repeat, just like the original model. this thing is a real òcreativity machineó a fascinating device that
catches you from the very first notes thanks to the warmth of its tone, the authenticity of its character and the creative opportunities it offers acting on the controls.
