Catalinbread introduces its latest pedal, the Echorec, giving you the sound of analog magnetic drum echo in a compact and modern package.
The pedal is based on the Binson Echorec, a tube echo with 4 playback heads and a spinning magnetic drum made famous by Pink Floyd.
The Catalinbread Echorec is designed to faithfully emulate the effect that was used on Pink Floyd hits like Echoes, Time and Interstellar Overdrive.
Catalinbread did not stop at just mimicking, they improved on the original by giving it a modern and reliable build as well as a Delay Time control that gives you a full second of sweep compared to the original's 300 milliseconds.
A wealth of front panel controls offer detailed contouring of your sound. You can adjust the Mix, Swell, Tone, Delay Time and pick from different preset Programs. The mix knob lets you set the dry/effect ratio, the swell knob gives you control over feedback repeats and the tone control lets you shape the sound. The 12-way program select control lets you pick the sound of playback head 1 and all the possible combinations of playback head 2, 3 and 4.
Aside from these controls, the Echorec features an internal trim pot that lets you adjust the randomness and intensity of the modulation. There is also an internal switch that allows you to pick between trails or true bypass. With true bypass turned off, the pedal leaves effect trails even when the effect is off.
