One of the best modern tape echo pedals on the market just got a fresh facelift for 2022! Check out the brand new Belle Epoch Deluxe V2 from the fine folks at Catalinbread! In addition to the new look, this version now works with the new Catalinbread CB Tap, a dedicated tap tempo switch that works seamlessly with the heralded tape echo.
Exact EP-3 circuitry, from the 22 volt power rail, to the JFET preamp (later spec), to the mixer stage, to the high gain silicon transistor based record and playback amplifiers, to the feedback loop.
All circuitry is faithfully reproduced and fine-tuned from the original EP-3 specifications. The only thing missing are the record and playback heads, with a 24-bit high-fidelity digital delay line taking the place of the tape. All-discrete, through-hole construction with orange drop 225P capacitors, carbon composition resistors, germanium diodes, and other premium parts.
