Electro-Harmonix has a reputation for quality delays and their #1 Echo guitar effects pedal is a prime example. The tone is ultra-high quality up to two seconds of maximum warmth analogue-sounding delay. Whether you're looking to create a subtle flutter, or a massive fold back on your chops that can develop into a stirring soundscape, the #1 Echo has you covered.
The #1 Echo is an impressive instrument that repeats any note, lick or chop you play through it with uncompromising accuracy. The pedal gives you the ability to control the duration of time applied between the note being struck and the echoed repeat, ranging from a rapid 10ms up to a lengthy 2 seconds. Along with the timing, you can choose the number of times that you want the repeats to be echoed for. The feedback control of the Electro Harmonix 1 Echo pedal sets the number of repeats and how fast they fade, while the blend control lets you adjust the balance of echo volume with the dry guitar signal, putting your sound exactly in the pocket you want.
With a little time spent experimenting with the #1 Echo, you will discover a wide range of tonal possibilities at your fingertips. Whether you create a subtle double-tracking illusion with a slight offset between notes, to a layered slapping together of notes with a longer delay. The longer the delay also means that you can create a thick, densely packed barrage of complex notes.
The pedal features a three control knob layout: Blend; Delay Time; and Feedback. The Blend knob determines the mix between the dry signal and the delayed effect (wet signal). The Delay Time knob controls the delay time of the Echo, as previously noted it ranges from a fast 10ms to a generous whole 2 seconds. The Feedback knob determines the minimum and maximum level of repeats that are heard.
Each unit is supplied with the US96DC-200BI adapter, which enables you to get performing as soon as your pedal arrives. As you’d expect, the chassis is built like an absolute tank, perfect for the seasoned pro on the touring circuit.
