Foxgear Introduces the T7EBABY

Foxgear Introduces the T7EBABY

The Binson Echorec-inspired delay will feature four playback heads and three operation modes: echo, rep, and swell.

With our other Brand GURUS we have been awarded about our Echosex series, reproducing the old Italian Echo Binson Echorec, with the appreciation of many big pro artists, our Echosex became quickly a big part on the tone of people like Steve Lukather of Toto, Guy Pratt of Pink Floyd, Albert Lee, Alan Parsons, Walter Becker of Steely Dan, Adrian Belew, Skunk Anansie, Lifehouse, John Shanks and Phil X of Bon Jovi, and numerous other big names.


With Foxgear, we released the Echosex Baby (mimic the Echorec Baby that Binson made back in the 70' with a transistor version of his Echorec that was smaller and cheaper..) and it was another success, being today one of our best selling products.

That's why we now wants to extend the Foxgear range, with a full reproduction of the old Binson's features:

  • Stereo Engine (input & output)
  • 4 Playback Heads
  • Motor Speed Adjustment
  • Swell Footswitch
  • Three working mode: Echo, Rep, Swell
  • 12 combinations of the four heads
  • Ture bypass assisted by golden pin relays
  • Analog MIX
  • Small size: 3,5"x5"

Size: the new FOXGEAR T7EBABY enclosure makes it one of most pedal board friendly of the "Binson-inspired" pedals: only 3,5" x 5"!! ( 9 x 13cm.)

- Connections: the FOXGEAR T7EBABY is equipped with full Stereo Input & output, and an internal stereo engine that works on a phase and split-frequency resulting in an unbelievable stereo 3D effect for an outstanding and lush ambient tone.

- Switching: Now available with 2 footswitches handling bypass, that is a real True Bypass assisted by relay, that lets you put it at the end of your chain between stereo pedals, and a very useful SWELL footswitch, to immediately recall the swell mode (reverb) in order to have two different presets for your ambient/echo tone.

- Motor Speed adjust: along with the other cool features of the old Echosex Baby, we've added this control, that let you increase the overall delay time, you can mimic a slowered speed of the magnetic drum. This allows the FOXGEAR T7EBABY over 880ms of long, lush delay, keeping the 4 heads in sync, no matter what combination of head you are using.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
