Brian Wampler’s “Analog Echo” is loaded with a digital delay chip, but with pure analog circuitry surrounding in order to achieve tape echo or Echoplex-type delay tones with a 650ms maximum delay time.
After plugging in my Tele, I was suprised how good this pedal sounded. It reminds me a lot of the old TC Electronic Analog Delay—smooth and clear at the same time, with tons of tonal potential. With the tone control, you can dial in all shades between warm analog and a fat tape echo tone and with a slapback setting, you can easily mimic the old famous Sun Records “tiled bathroom” rockabilly tone we all love so much. Compared with my old Boss DM-3, the Wampler Analog Echo sounds fuller and warmer, more focused and without any signal degeneration at longer delay settings. This pedal is a keeper and a “must try” for everyone who is serious about a good delay tone. – DW
you want an excellent analog-sounding delay, with an extended delay time without any signal degeneration
you need a cold, sterile, digital-sounding, ultra-versatile stompbox with a lot of knobs, presets, tap tempo, reverse delay and other gimmicks
