The Danelectro Reel Echo Tape Simulator Pedal reproduces the sound of those '50s tape echo units perfectly and it will hold up a lot longer than they will. The Reel Echo from Dano simulates the sound perfectly and adds a Warble switch to replicate tape pitch deviations. A lo-fi control rolls off high frequencies of successive repeats just like tape while a Tube/Solid State toggle lets you pick your vintage. The Sound on Sound button works just like the original so you can play over the lick you just recorded. The Danelectro Reel Echo gives you up to 1-1/2 seconds of delay.

I had one of these for over 10 years and its the best echo ive used. Just has a great sound. I usually use it in tube mode with warble on. I just cant get rid of it. its here to stay. The only thing i wish is that they make a smaller version so i can cram more pedals on my board.
Well, it's not an Echoplex, but it sure as heck sounds like one! If you can't afford an Echoplex but want one, get one of these. Now I can get Eric Johnson's clean tone AND echo!
The Reel Echo Tape Simulator by Danelectro is the best ?echo? device you can buy on the market. Sure, you could go out and find one of the old analog devices, but it is my humble opinion that the Reel Echo does just about everything the original delay systems were capable of with less hassle and cost. One of the drawbacks of the early ?reel-to-reel? devices was the need to replace the tape every so often to maintain fidelity. For the musician in need of reliable gear, these analog devices were not always dependable. I have owned the Reel Echo pedal for over a year now. While I will be the first to admit that the knobs and switches are flimsy, the Reel Echo pedal eliminates the hassle of a tape and produces a consistent array of echo and delay effects. I am usually scornful of digital emulation, but this pedal doesn?t sound like a digital effect. It produces a warm tone and has been an excellent addition to my repertoire. I hope you?ll be as surprised as I was by the versatility and ?analog-like? warmth of the Reel Echo Tape Simulator.
