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.

It’s not difficult to replace the wiring in your pickups, but it takes some finesse. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. After numerous requests, this month we’ll have a closer look at changing wires on a single-coil pickup. As our guinea pig for this, I chose a standard Stratocaster single-coil, but it’s basically the same on all single-coil pickups and easy to transfer. It’s not complicated but it is a delicate task to not destroy your pickup during this process, and there are some things you should keep in mind.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
