With the characteristic warm tones of the vintage tape echo machines of old, Gauss Tape Echo epitomizes the rich psychedelic sounds of Gilmour in the 70's, Page's wild oscillating explorations and Van Halen's pitch altering fireworks. Gauss features ultra-saturated delay tones with authentic low end attenuation and authentic wow and flutter that really thickens up your tone. It also works perfectly for 50's slapback, elevanting your Scotty Moore licks into rockabilly heaven.
Few delay effects are more revered, or iconic, than the tape echo machines of yesteryear. The warm, fat tones of the vintage reel-to-reel tape units have become the stuff of legend, but they are hard to come by, pretty temperamental and typically quite expensive. Gauss Tape Echo realistically emulates the sound of those legendary tape echo machines, plays well with other effects, and is pretty darn affordable!
- Tape style echo delay pedal
- Mod switch for turning on authentic warm modulation
- True Bypass
Gauss Tape Echo features a highly responsive and easy to use 3-knob interface with control over Delay Time, Sustain and Volume. Our custom-designed, cutting-edge tape algorithm lets you create powerful subsonic pitch dives and self-oscillating spirals of psychedelia by simply manipulating the knobs in real time. An onboard Mod-switch lets you go squeaky clean, or add subtle and warm modulation to your echoes.
Just as any good delay pedal, Gauss Tape Echo gives your tone a sense of space and substance, by stretching it out a little bit, or a lot! It also fattens up the sound by adding a distinct sense of "more". But it also gives you the sought-after timbre of the original tape echo machines complete with wow and flutter effects, and natural bass attenuation on the repeats. Gauss Tape Echo easily recreates any style of echo, from the warm and organic tape delay of your favorite rock classics, to old-school '50s rockabilly slap-back.
Unlike the original tape machines, Gauss Tape Echo is small and easy to transport. Its top-mounted jacks make it right at home on any pedal board, while the sturdy metal frame will stand up to obscene amounts of stage and road abuse. Also unlike the original designs, Gauss Tape Echo features true bypass circuitry to keep your signal clear and bright - no matter what you throw at it!
