Fulltone definitely mastered the tape delay and this one is the proof to that statement. The Fulltone TubeTapeEcho is literally a vintage EP-2 Echoplex with many upgrades that not only give you a better range of delay, but is also a much more reliabale unit. This one is brand new, ready to go with a new tape cartridge.
The improvements made to the TubeTapeEcho include;
*the preamp ran at over 200 volts
*higher quality heads
*improved the tape transport with ball-bearing guide posts
*2 tape speeds
*better quality tape
*an intelligent torque (and speed) adjusting DC powered transport motor.
* got rid of the hum by running the filaments on 12VDC,
*made it stereo
*gave it true bypass
*got rid of the Ep-2's sound-robbing Echo Cancel feature and replaced it with a relay-activated cancel function allowing for any cable length to the footswitch with no degradation to the sound of the repeats.
*gave it a separate Instrument and Echo volume control
*and put a tone control on it affecting only the repeats.
