Maplin EC-444 Analog Delay #2


In stock


Analog BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) delay line. Like many early analog delays, the EC-444 was sold under various names including Better, Maplin, Sargent and Echorder

The EC-444 is a neat, great-sounding analog delay with simple controls. Maximum delay is fairly short but it has the typical BBD delay sound and sounds great with feedback

For longer delays, put it in series with a clean digital delay and feed back from the end of the chain – analog delay sound with digital delay long delay times…

“Pure, dirty analog delay. The Maplin Echorder is a low-fi but spectacular analog delay unit which is a breath of fresh air in today’s ultra clean digital effect days.”

“The sound cannot be imitated digitally, so these analogue effects are so highly sought after”
