Designed as a sturdier alternative to tape echoes, guitarists and engineers quickly fell in love with its warm, gooey sound. Since then, Crucial Audio has released a series of popular devices, including several based on the original Echo-Nugget design, including the Studio-Nugget. This rackmount version is custom-voiced for studio use and also comes in a stereo version. Continue reading →
