Echo Fix EF-X3R Tape Echo Unit - Vintage King Exclusive
Rack-mountable version of the EF-X2 tape echo unit made in exclusive collaboration with Vintage King Audio featuring an analog BBD chorus and analog spring reverb for a 100% analog signal path
The Echo Fix EF-X3R is the latest offering in Echo Fix’s line of tape delays. This VK editions was designed in collaboration with Vintage King Audio and built in Australia, to the highest quality. It EF-X3R includes many of the most requested features and builds on the momentum and trust gained after 3 years of making the EF-X2. Now with an Analog BBD Chorus & Analog Spring Reverb, the EF-X3R boasts a 100% analog signal path.
Individual outputs for each head offer flexibility never-before-seen in a tape echo, with the ability to achieve a classic Stereo Ping-Pong delay effect by panning each head externally. On top of this, Echo Fix have implemented a new auto tape stop circuit to extend tape life. Both the input and outputs are mono, however the individual outputs for each head allow you to pan the mono source externally, achieving a wide stereo ping-pong delay due to the different delay timings of each playback head.
For nearly 15 years, Echo Fix have been keeping tape echos alive and now that they make their own, the standards are higher than ever! Rest assured that your machine will be the most capable, reliable tape echo on the market, supported by a team with some of the best customer service in the industry.
If you’ve been in a room with one of Echo Fix's units, you’ll know what we mean by this. Used as an effect, they simply make everything sound better. But turn up the echo volume, dial in some feedback and watch as the unit self-oscillates into life and becomes an instrument more than an effect. The EF-X3R will change the way you make music.
