Echo, Echo Echo Echo pedals (sorry, had to do it) are great. They give you a shimmery, floaty tone which is popular in prog style bands and opens up new sound choices.... where you take it is up to you.
This has a 100% analog signal, true bypass and interchangeable tape heads for a flexible, high quality sound.
Try a few new things
Two expression pedal inputs allow you to control the delay time and feedback in real time for instant synth-noise at your feet.
The tape cartridge (available seperately) can be replaced in seconds and the high headroom of the circuit will allow you to use this pedal for processing line signals as well (keyboards, P.A. aux sends, preamps, etc.).
The difference between a super precise, accurate digital echo and the Replicator is that there is a certain amount of unpredictability in the sound of tape. It has its own life, almost. And that personality translates into a very natural sounding echo that we think feels more like an instrument than a sound effect.
T Rex - Small firm, big sounds
Being among the pioneers of the modern effects pedal manufacturers, Denmark’s T-Rex Engineering was brought to the world in 1996. Guitarists and engineers, Lars Dahl and Sebastian Jensen, conceived ideas and technical solutions to upgrade existing guitar effects as well as develop new effects. Aside from effects pedals, Lars and Sebastian also develop high quality equipment such as power supplies, cables, and pedal boards for guitarists around the world. Each of their pedals are designed to be something special and a highlight of your rig.
Here's what T-Rex have to say about this pedal
There once was a time when a ”bucket brigade” was a handful of firemen and digital processing was only used by computers the size of a house. Echo effects were largely done by using magnetic tape run by a motor – it was such a cool sounding concept, but the size, weight and ease of use was always a challenge for the players.
That was then, this is now!
The Replicator is T-Rex Engineering´s take on the ultimate tape echo unit, complete with a motor, magenetic heads and a tape cartridge. The goal was to make a tape echo unit that could nail the sound quality of the old echo units, but surpass them in features. Size, ease of use and super-fast tape replacing were obvious areas of improvement, but we also put in tap tempo, two playback heads for three output modes and a chorus mode that modulates the pitch of the echos.
