What we say:
At A Glance:
The perfect marriage of analog and digital is here in the form of the Wampler Faux Tape Echo! Combining an analog signal path with a ‘digital delay line’ keeps the signal strong and true! Other features include modern must haves like tap tempo and easily accessible sub divisions, you can achieve the classic tape sounds of old but with some added warmth usually associated with analog delays.
Features We Love:
The Faux Tape Echo keeps it real with authentic sounding tape echo emulation so no need to take your Dad’s old Watkins Copycat to the repair shop for the 50th time.
Utilising the tap tempo and subdivision button on the pedal can shape and change the delays sound and nature in a way that was impossible with the units of old.
Great For Any Occasion!

- Innovative analog/digital hybrid, essentially the best of both worlds.
- Fantastic and authentic vintage feels without the price tag or hassle.

- Wampler Faux Tape Echo Delay Pedal
Based on the hugely popular best seller of the previous models, the v2 offers the same purity of signal path, the same depth of tone on the repeats and most importantly, the addition of sub divisions on the tap tempo. With this, you can now have your delays come at ¼, 1/8, dotted 1/8 and triplet based on your tap tempo.
With our hybrid design (completely pure analog dry path with the digital delay layered on top) approach, you get the best of both worlds. You get the note clarity, much lower noise, and longer delay times from digital delays... You also get the lovely warmth and little exquisite touches that are usually reserved for analog delays. Nearly every part of the pedal, all of its major functions, are analog. The "delay line" is the only digital part of the signal path. It alone being digital brings clarity and focus to the task in a way that analog delay line chips can't really match.
But everything else, all the absolutely vital filtering to carefully finish the sound is pure analog. Every aspect of the modulation that gives the Faux Tape Echo pedal a unique function and tone and makes it desirable for people who want their delay tone to sound as good as tape delay units but without all the maintenance, supplies, and hassle. Your all-important fundamental dry tone is 100% analog, too.
So when we say it's the best of both worlds, we absolutely mean it. From country slap-back to ambient washes to straight-ahead rock and metal delay, the hybrid approach lets Brian make one pedal that can do it all.
The Faux Tape Echo takes everything great about the original, and adds to it that much-requested tap tempo with sub-division functionality that users have been asking for, as well as our well known emulation of the elusive and beautiful character that people look for in classic tape echo units.
