Hello folks, Do any of you guys use (or just owned) an original Echorec for slapback? I use to have one in the late 80s (an original Echorec 2, that my first guitar teacher gave me for 100 dollars or something like that), unfortunately it stopped working after my first attempt to clean tape (and my mother threw it into the trash thinking it was some kind of broken VCR player, that's the sad part or the story...) so I move to an Ibanez AD7. To be honest I don't remember how it worked at the time (I was too young and too unexperienced to know the good from the bad tape echos), so I'm trying to have some feedback from you fellas. I've been dragged deep into Space Echo's stories by the Stray Cats saga (even if all I know about I learned it reading specs on Tavo Vega's Nocturne website...), especially now that a whole line of Nocture Pedals explained me the reason of "that" sound. I actually own an old (mid 90s) Memory Man Deluxe pedal that has a special effect on my sound (don't ask me why, but the Level knob acts like a sort of boost on my overall tone, a real boost that saturated the signal giving me more grit), something that doesn't happen on my RE-20 (probably because it's digital I guess...) so I was wondering... I have the chance to buy an Echorec 2 again for a fair price (and with the help of some pedal swap)... do you think it could have the same effect on my signal like, you know, and old Space Echo or some old tape machine with top electronics? Giving me more grit, brightness and note separation? The Binson owner it's really far from my home, so frankly I don't like the idea of just go there and try it with the risk that nothing happens and I just loose money on a useless trip. I rely on you, fellow Gretschers!
