ECHOLTD2° is an echo unit that maintains the same technical characteristics as the old model; slightly increase the size so as to accommodate the two delay time controls, the magic eye, the wet-out and the buttons that select the tone filter. We have put all our attentions into evolving a better and more comfortable design.
The preamps are composed by the two triodes of the 12Ax7 valve and buffered directly with mos-fet, so as to preserve all the purity of the sound. The polarized valve in this way inserts a very musical natural compression that makes ECHOLTD2° unique. The bypass circuit in addition to performing its priority function, resets the feedback in an analog way so as to allow a new re-use with matching halos.
ECHOLTD2° was built as a limited edition numbered in 500 pieces to celebrate the 25th Anniversary.
ATTENTION! The peak current of the tube in the preheating can exceed 1A (1000mA).
The HISTORY SERIES is equipped with an internal voltage doubler circuit. For this reason it’s necessary to use a stabilized power supply capable of guaranteeing a maximum working voltage of 12VDC with 500mA continuous.
ECHO 1 time ranges from 75 to 420mS while ECHO 2 from 75 to 580mS.
TONE CONTROL works in the same way as the previous version, offering the additional possibility of selecting two different filters. These filters modify the “halo” scene allowing you to sculpt the desired sound better.
The “Magic eye”, displays the input signal. (Always On) This is pre-calibrated by the factory in order to understand the progress of the signal and when it is advisable to reduce the gain level of the input using the dedicated 0/-10db button.
Now with the gain buttons on the main panel it’s easier and more immediate to reduce or increase the levels of the input and output.
It can be connected between instrument and amplifier, in the effects loop and in the recording devices.
