Product Description

The Catalinbread Belle Epoch has tape echo sounds so authentic, you’d swear there was real tape inside the pedal! Inspired by the Maestro Echoplex EP-3 model, perhaps the most famous tape delay ever, the Belle Epoch features everything Catalinbread loves about the EP-3 in a small, maintenance-free pedal format.


  • MIX: Replicates the functionality of the Echo Volume control on the EP-3 and uses the same basic passive mixer circuit.
  • REC LEV: Sets how hard the "tape" or delay line is hit. It does not affect your dry signal and only affects the initial first repeat.
  • MOD: Influences the amount of random tape "wow" and flutter effects in the echoes.
  • ECHO SUSTAIN: Affects how much delay signal is fed back to the delay line to get multiple repeats.
  • ECHO DELAY: Controls the delay time, from about 80ms all the way up to 800ms.

Under The Hood

  • Gain Trimmer: This sets the gain of the preamp. It is factory-set just above unity gain. At maximum gain, you’ll be treated with a gloriously huge fuzzy boost that sounds amazing into a cranked amp!
  • Buffer/True-Bypass Switch: From the factory, Catalinbread ship the Belle Epoch in true-bypass mode. You can use this switch to set it to "buffer" mode, to counteract treble loss when using long cable runs.


  • Power Source: 9-18V DC
  • Current Draw: 60mA
  • Max Delay Time: ~700ms
  • Dimensions: 4.33” X 2.36” X 1.93”
  • Weight: 0.4 lbs
