Echo Fix EF-X2 Tape Echo with Spring Reverb and DSP Reverb/Chorus - Green
A classic effect, built for modern users - the Echo Fix EF-X2 Tape Echo couples the sounds you know and love, with features and reliability unimaginable in the past. In designing the EF-X2, the team at Echo Fix began with the knowledge and insight gained from their work as the world's foremost experts in spare parts, servicing and repairing vintage tape echo units. Put simply, they know how tape echos should sound and operate.
Echo Fix spent three years prototyping, rigorously testing, and meticulously designing in secret - while accounting for every possible application. They couldn't find a new production motor good enough so they made their own and invested in the latest high tech machinery to custom balance them in house. They also could not find tape heads that sounded good enough so they had custom tape heads manufactured to exact specs.
One of the other important things when it comes to reliable tape echo operation is the tape loop. Echo Fix thoroughly researched tape and have a tape formulation that not only lasts a very long time but sounds incredible as well, that is how far they were willing to go to make the EF-X2 reliable and sound great!
The result is a warm sounding tape echo with a modern feature set that is at home in the professional recording studio, live guitar rig, bedroom production setup or in any other context you can dream up, the EF-X2 will become an integral part of your creative process.

This is one of the coolest pieces of gear I’ve purchased in 30 years. Calling it “gear” is inadequate — it’s literally a work of art. It’s clear that every single detail was considered and executed perfectly. And talk about customer service — I had a setup question and Shane called me personally from Australia to answer it! All that aside, of course you’re primarily buying this for the sound, and it’s beyond amazing. No pedal can do what this does. Holy grail of tape echo. If you’ve considered a vintage Space Echo, this will give you all of that magic without the headaches of restoring and/or maintaining old gear — built by the guy who understands the Space Echo better than anyone. A+.
This Shit Rules!! So yeah... diggin’ it!
