Four-Head Sonic Echo

Only one left in stock.

The original Binson Echorec P.E. 603 was used by many artists from the early 70ā€™s onward, including Led Zeppelin, The Shadows and Pink Floyd. The Floyd used the 603 on stage during the Dark Side tour and also on Live at Pompeii.
Ā 
The P.E. 603 had a magical sound and the POMPEII aims to revive these echoes of the past in a smaller, lighter pedal format with improved sonic performance.
Ā 
Pompeii provides everything from classic slap-back up to 740 mS of delay. It can generate single repeats like a standard echo, but its multiple tape head combinations are where the unit truly shines.
Ā 
To fully re-create the original magic, the POMPEII circuit is set up as a true ā€œmulti-headā€ echo, sharing the same first twelve switch positions as the early machines. This 12-position rotary switch selects different ā€œtape-headā€ combinations to create a vast array of multi-tap/beat-split delay effects. Head combinations are displayed graphically on the panel, back lit by classic ā€œItalian greenā€ lighting.
Ā 
The Swell mode creates a reverberation effect through the use of all the heads simultaneously. Both wet & dry signal pass through a 12AU7 tube for the warmest sound with maximum transparency. A cascading FET circuit is employed to mix gains and buffer the signal.
Ā 
A great deal of time was also spent developing POMPEIIā€™s feedback and tone circuits. As a result, the interaction between the Feedback and Tone controls can create incredibly beautiful and lush multi-dimensional sounds.
Ā 
The original P.E. 603ā€™s motor could be modified to change speed, lengthening the time between recording and playback heads (and therefore repeats). This was called the ā€œvarispeedā€ mod.
Ā 
By applying the same concept via an ultra-low harmonic distortion circuit, POMPEII can achieve a delay time of 740ms with the Varispeed knob turned to its maximum setting.
Ā 
Thanks to great signal dynamics the POMPEII can be used either in front of an amp or in an FX loop at instrument or line level without making any adjustments.
Ā 
POMPEII not only sounds gorgeous, but looks gorgeous as well. A custom-designed chassis with laser-etched plexiglass faceplate and hammered-silver finish completes an image that truly echoes its inspiration.
