The #1 Echo is part of the Electro-Harmonix line of Micro (xo) guitar effect pedals, with a small die-cast housing. But don't let the size deceive you - it produces some of the finest digital echo available, with a full two seconds(!) of maximum delay time. Echo/delay effect is controlled by feedback and delay time knobs. A blend control lets you adjust the amount of delay in your signal to make sure the Micro #1 sits exactly where you want it in any track or performance.

A rugged footswitch selects whether the #1 Echo pedal is engaged or bypassed, indicated by an LED. When in Bypass mode, the output jack is connected to the input jack through a buffer. It's equipped with standard 1/4" instrument I/O jacks. The barrel connector is for a 9-volt battery eliminator capable of delivering 100 mA of current. The inner ring of the 9-volt battery eliminator must be negative, the outer ring positive. The unit's battery may be left in or taken out when the eliminator is in use.

Decent delay

By Kyle Allen

from Atlanta, GA

I have just recently bought this pedal to go along with a main delay I have as well as a reverb to stack 2 delays with reverb to get a really washy, ambient sound for modern worship music. It is a very clean, digital delay. Very versatile as far as the length of repeats as well as the delay time. It works well as a stacking delay if you are using it secondary. The reason I gave it 3 stars is because there is a pretty big signal loss when engaged. It doesn't suck tone when it is not engaged though which is nice. You really need to have a clean boost pedal of some sort to get the most out of this pedal. Luckily, I have a clean boost pedal but if you don't have one, I would go with another delay just for the loss of volume when you engage it.

I did not review this pedal before purchase,I bought it on impulse....WOW! Love it! I've been playing professionally for over 30 years and used an Echoplex in the late 70s. This is a digital pedal that almost replicates the analog tape echo sound i've been looking for without the $$$$(I still miss the extra noises from worn tape and heads). I won't bore you (ie:brag) about my setup. The slap-back is excellent (think Led Zep Good Times Bad Times). NO TAP TEMPO? Real guitarist don't need no stinking TAP TEMPO. Learn how to play with the basics. Then you can get something with Tampon Tempo. As an EX drummer for J. Winter once told me, "FemProds have ruined good musicians". AS far as complaints about "Volume Drop" in the effects loop; Go and buy a VDc (VOLUME DROP compensator) MANUFACTURED by Tension Audio Resonance Devices. When all your friends ask, just tell them you got your VD from (a) TARD. I'm going to buy a 2nd #1 Echo, so that one can be used only for Slap Back. For the money, you can't go wrong.

few sources for great products

By michael gilchrease

from grass valley,ca

ive been a guitar player for 35 years and have always trusted electro harmonix, i have used their products successfully the whole time...the 1 echo combines great quality with great tone and ease of use....digital with the analog sound has combined to make this pedal a very desirable unit in any guitar players arsenal--- and there are only two sources of musical equipment i will ever shop, and guitar center happened to have a better discount than the other outlet(most of you know who), so whenever i am in the market for a guitar, amplification, live equipment, effects units i will always check with guitar center for that extra discount, and they have come thru tremedously.

It's analog?

By ProCoJayBo

from Columbia, PA

I don't what these 4 star reviews are about. Anyone looking to buy this pedal should already know that it doesn't have a tap tempo feature. NO BRAINER! It's analog with a classic feel. A clean signal might be the most important thing about a delay. If you're playing a Tele' you're gonna want the delay to sound like your playing it twice. The SlapBack is also to perfection. This is a five star product unless you bought it thinking it had more features than it did. BOOYA!

only one thing missing

By mo

from Fullerton, CA

This pedal is awesome. It was my teacher on how delay pedals work. I get cool sounds from it all the time, and i'm amazed at how clean the sound comes through.. this is pure delay. but. one thing missing... Tap tempo. if this had taptempo i'd give this a 6 stars.

awesome... but still lacking.

By mochi

from california

I gotta say. this is a awesome pedal. the sound is unhindered by this pedal. very clean. you can get some pretty cool sounds out of this.. different knob positions can give you lotsa fun. If it had a tap tempo, this would be the ideal delay for anyone, but it doesnt have it... its very nice, a bit light, for its looks, but does its job... its a good pedal if your learning how delay pedals work...
