Maestro's Echoplex tape delays are widely considered the gold standard when it comes to authentic, vintage tape delay tone. Decades later, nothing really captures the vibe, tone, and response of an old Echoplex unit. We're quickly reminded of just how great these units are when plugging into this lovely example from 1973.

While the EP-2 garners a lot of attention due to its tube-based circuitry, the solid state EP-3 has secured its corner of the tonesphere on its most legendary sonic merits. The preamp design and sound alone made the EP-3 the most popular Echoplex variant to date. EP-3s tend to be a little clearer and brighter sounding - a little more "hi fi" if you will - than its predecessors. In a band or mix context, an EP-3 will certainly make sure that both your dry signal and your repeats are heard. All that extra harmonic content really creates some tonal magic!

This particular unit is in excellent operating condition and sounds fabulous, having just gone through a routine service by one of our trusted local amp techs, (and self-proclaimed tape delay junkie) Stan Day. The cabinet is in very good shape with all of the typical signs of wear one sees with these 50 year old boxes. Earlier models like this were made from plywood and tend to be pretty resilient. It's missing its recording lamp cover, but still works as it should. The notoriously fragile handle has broken off of the cover, but the base remains. It's still got the original chicken head knobs, and the chassis and tape head cover are in great shape.

The Maestro Echoplex EP-3 is the tape delay by which all other delays are measured.

Priced with additional tape cartridge.
