The Faux Echo v1 was always regarded as one of the best sounding Tape Echo pedals available on the market, and V2 has taken that legacy to the next level!
One of the most important functions (though sometimes hard to find) on a delay is having a tap tempo to allow you to sync the repeats with the tempo of the song you're playing. The Faux Echo has a tap tempo along with the sub-divisions switch which gives you access to:
- Quarter note repeats
- Dotted 1/8
The Faux Echo leads the way with an all-analogue signal path with the digital delay repeats over the top. Giving you the precision and accuracy of the digital delay with the warmth of the analogue signal. The 'delay line' is the only part of the pedal that is actually digital, so can you rest assured that no artifacts will enter your signal path.
Here's what Wampler say about the Faux Tape Echo
Now in it’s second incarnation, the Faux Tape Echo v2 brings you everything you want from a standard delay pedal in the ultimate gig friendly package.
Based on the hugely popular best seller of the previous models, the v2 offers the same purity of signal path, the same depth of tone on the repeats and most importantly, the addition of sub divisions on the tap tempo. With this, you can now have your delays come at ¼, 1/8, dotted 1/8 and triplet based on your tap tempo.
With our hybrid design (completely pure analog dry path with the digital delay layered on top) approach, you get the best of both worlds. You get the note clarity, much lower noise, and longer delay times from digital delays... You also get the lovely warmth and little exquisite touches that are usually reserved for analog delays. Nearly every part of the pedal, all of its major functions, are analog. The “delay line” is the only digital part of the signal path. It alone being digital brings clarity and focus to the task in a way that analog delay line chips can’t really match.
But everything else, all the absolutely vital filtering to carefully finish the sound is pure analog. Every aspect of the modulation that gives the Faux Tape Echo pedal a unique function and tone and makes it desirable for people who want their delay tone to sound as good as tape delay units but without all the maintenance, supplies, and hassle. Your all-important fundamental dry tone is 100% analog, too.
So when we say it’s the best of both worlds, we absolutely mean it. From country slap-back to ambient washes to straight-ahead rock and metal delay, the hybrid approach lets Brian make one pedal that can do it all.
The Faux Tape Echo takes everything great about the original, and adds to it that much-requested tap tempo with sub-division functionality that users have been asking for, as well as our well known emulation of the elusive and beautiful character that people look for in classic tape echo units.
