    Product Description

    Despite the huge popularity of modern digital delay effects, the organic character of good ol' tape echo never seems to go out of fashion. The warbles and characteristic ‘broken’ sounds are what helped put delay on the proverbial map, and it's a sound that's still favoured by many for adding a little extra texture.

    Now TC Electronic have unveiled a brilliant digital replication of a classic tape echo effect that comes in at entry-level prices. Everything from super-saturated tape warmth to short slapback delays are possible! 

    Here's what TC Electronic have to say about the Gauss Tape Echo:

    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 legends, 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!  


    • Vintage echo style delay pedal
    • High quality digital circuitry
    • Authentic tape echo tones
    • True bypass
    • Top-mounted I/O
    • Compact but roadworthy design
    • Highly affordable
    • Runs on 9V battery or optional PSU
    • Power consumption: 9V DC and 100 mA

    Great sound. Be aware of the volume drop when pedal is engaged. But this does not affect overall quality.
