I ask because I owned the Re-20 but I also have owned an RE-201, RE-150, TTE and several other tape echoes besides my current RE-301. It tape echo
eccentricity has only ever been its "saturated tape delay" and "wow and flutter
characteristics".. For that alone it has merit for many.. although I find that
the coloring of the dry signal is what makes it unique and how it affects the
dynamics of the amp..
Thanks for that TV.
First I have to say that I play guitar like a 5 year old kid. Not a good one but an average 5 year old. I wouldnt spot the diffrence between my Gretsch and a broken $25 guitar even if someone hit me in the forehead with them.
Same goes probably with delay effects. I play so lousy and slow that I can play the echo my self on the guitar in between the notes and chords.... (Didnt Carl Perkins have a technique where he played the echo effect on the guitar?)
I do not know if there is a diffrence between RE-201 and RE 301. It was more of curiosity if there was a model simulating the 301.
Finaly TV, love your music and I bought your album Songs of justice. And I promise that my next investment will be the Nocturne.
