This is a comparison of the Strymon Volante with the Catalinbread Echorec. Both delay pedals emulate the sound of the legendary Binson Echorec- a magnetic drum delay. Concerning the categorization of delay pedals, guitarists mostly refer to analog delays, tape delays and digital delay pedals. But this true classic is often overlooked because it is pretty rare and only available in used condition.
Recently, I found the following request in my mailbox:
“I think, I actually would need a Binson Echorec, but they are in fact beyond price. I love the flutter echo mash, that the Echorec is able to create. In the meantime, I think, that an analog delay is able to produce every sound, I long for. Digital delays with analog emulation do not sound that nice to me. But at the same time, I don’t want to get into dept. Could you tell me, if the Ibanez Echo Shifter might be a suitable pedal for me? Especially in contrast to the Ibanez analog delay, AD9, mini or even the EHX Memory Toy? I have already tried to many sappy pedals. Right now, I do (still!) use the Hardwire DL8. But in my opinion, it is too cold and inorganic.”Continue reading “Ask the Dude: Is there a pedal sounding like the Binson Echorec?”
The Catalinbread Adineko is a pedalboard friendly digital delay. The 9V pedal dispenses with tap tempo, stereo in- and outputs, a looper as well as an input for an expression pedal or midi. Continue reading “Catalinbread Adineko”

At the moment flanger pedals are rather unpopular- maybe because they have been used far too often in the 80s or maybe because of their distinctive sound. But not all flange effects are equal and depending on the way of use a flange effect can sound quite interesting. Continue reading “Flanger”
To many guitarists the chase for the perfect overdrive pedal is a never ending story. And not only because of different ideas of sound, have other guitarist’s recommendations leaded to disappointment as not every overdrive pedal is suitable for all kind of sounds.

2017 numerous new pedals were put on the market. Especially for delays it seems that the Golden age has come. There have been some interesting innovations for both, the analog (because of the reissue of the MN2005-chip) and the digital delays. Continue reading “New Delays in 2017”
