Dawner Prince Electronics Releases the Boonar

Boonar is an effects pedal precisely designed to recreate vintage Binson Echorec multi-tap magnetic drum echo-delay.

Imotski, Croatia (November 20, 2015) -- After months of intensive in-depth research and development, Dawner Prince Electronics managed to bring back the sound and feel of the legendary Binson Echorec, one of the finest echo machines ever built.

Everything is in there and more: from thick, juicy tube tone, glorious multi-dimensional echo repeats melted with haunting reverb decays, variable delay time up to a full second and separate playback heads switching system to an amazing and distinctive external looks dominated by a gold finish and green pulsating "magic-eye" level indicator, all packed in an incredibly compact stompbox form.

  • Authentic Binson Echorec emulator with up to 1 second of adjustable delay time
  • Separate playback heads switches for maximum of 16 possible combinations.
  • Unique Drum Age control simulating aging characteristics of the magnetic memory system

My years-long search for the “right” Bigsby-outfitted box finally paid off. Now how do I make this sumbitch work in my band?

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love. High-end Gretsches are pricey enough that, for a long time, I just couldn’t swing it. Years ago I had an Electromatic for a while, and it looked and played lovely, but didn’t have the open, blooming acoustic resonance I hoped for. A while later, I reviewed the stellar Players Edition Broadkaster semi-hollow, and it was so great in so many ways that I set my sights on it, eventually got one, and adore it to this day. Yet the full-hollowbody lust remained.
