The Echopet is a vintage analogue echo using Bucket Brigade Devices (BBD) rather than later digital technology. BBD devices had a short lifespan, as digital gear took over rapidly, but are sought-after for their sound

“Trippy Spaced-out Dub Delay… a┬ádub creators dream, the quality and sound of the echo, the warmth, the rubbery juicy echos, the spacey decay, and most of all the real-time playability of the unit is just great.”

“A gem of a unit, really not like anything else. A space echo 201 is different, and is very nice, but this thing has its own mojo completely. At a fraction of the price”

The EP-100 has two instrument inputs that mix to feed the delay line plus an output mix control to balance delay & the direct signal. Delay time & feedback are on pots so the delay time is continuously variable – a great feature when playing with feedback!

It’s possible to get the Echopet to feed back continuously and it does that trick without going into gross distortion. Sweeping the delay time pitch-shifts the feedback giving some excellent swooping delays which change in character as the high-end rolls off. It’s a great effect that can’t be replicated with other delays

When overdriven the EP-100 distorts nicely – the second Youtube demo showcases this quite well – see the Links tab for more links & demos

Supplied in a 2U rackmount which can be removed to use the unit freestanding. Tested & working 100%. Photos show the unit for sale
