Pink Floyd made the Binson Echorec famous starting back in Syd's day, but it all culminated when the band had 4 of these arcane units on stage at the Pompeii Amphitheater. The Bins... read more

Enter the Catalinbread Echorec. It does everything the Binson Echorec did without the maintenance troubles and costs of the old tube unit. The only sonic liberties Catalinbread took was extending and making the delay time variable, from 40mS to 1000mS. THey figured that if they were going to take this liberty that the delay time knob should be continuously variable, so you can twist the knob warping the pitch. The original Binson was actually true bypass, which turns all the echoes off, making scene changes abrupt. Catalinbread's is as well and also has the option to have trails when you bypass the pedal. Finally they added three combinations of the 4 playback heads that were missing on the original unit.
The feature-set is as true the the real deal as possible. With one very different additional control - delay time. This allows you to go from the stock old school unit maximum delay time of about 300ms all the way to 1s delay time.
12 way selector chooses the following playback head combinations:
|01 = 1||07 = 1&4|
|02 = 1&2||08 = 1,2,3|
|03 = 2&3||09 = 2,3,4|
|04 = 3&4||10 = 1,2,4|
|05 = 1&3||11 = 1,3,4|
|06 = 2&4||12 = 1,2,3,4|
There is an internal trimmer that adjusts the randomness and intensity of the modulation. Howard designed a dry audiopath that we don't want to ever turn off, so we decided to include a trails, true bypass switch... We're pretty sure you will always keep your Echorec on trails mode, cause the audiopath is THAT good!
