Overview

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.

Features
  • Up to two seconds of delay
  • Blend control
  • Delay Time control
  • Feedback control
  • On/off footswitch
  • LED indicator
  • 1/4" input and output jacks
  • Buffer bypass

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!

This delay features no tempo-tap, no 'modulation' settings, no 'boost', and (depending where you set the 'blend' knob) some overall signal loss. You might not mind what it won't do in your living-room, but this probably isn't what you want on your p-board for your serious 'stage-tone'. I bought mine used for 1/2 the 'New' price, and mine had velcro on the bottom (so someone had already taken this off their pedal-board...). If you have a stage-worthy delay with your presets all lined up, this unit won't replace ANY of that, but if you're upgrading from an analog 'slap-back only' type delay, maybe the longer time (2sec) of this digital pedal will help you. My Lovepedal Gen5 Echo is 1/2 the size of this, and has a 'modulation' control as well as a boost. I use bigger, more elaborate delays on my p-boards (one has a Vox DelayLab, the other an Eventide TimeFactor) with various patches lined up. This simple EH #1 Echo is more of a set-and-forget, leave it on the whole time kind of pedal (like amp-reverb). One of these and, say, an EH DoubleMuff in front of a living-room amp makes an adequate tone for jamming. This just isn't the delay for a pro stage-rig, however. I hope this helps you decide if this unit's what you're looking for.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO #1 Echo Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    You turn the knob and nothing much seems to happen then it starts getting a little better and when you start getting close it's WAY TOO SENSITIVE! In other words the pots are the wrong value and/or taper. Otherwise a super killer pedal and could be easily modified.

    Decent delay

    By Kyle Allen

    from Atlanta, GA

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO #1 Echo Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    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 MISS MY ECHOPLEX - NO MORE

    By brad Greene

    from Austin TX

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO #1 Echo Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    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

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO #1 Echo Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    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.

    Misleading Pedal

    By Joel Hebert

    from With The Fool On The Hill

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO #1 Echo Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I intend to replace this pedal with one that maintains the line level volume without change.
    Very basic controls, easy to dial in a good delay. But," those player's that prefer to ""time"" their delays to BPMs will just have to adjust by ear", since this pedal lacks divisions that you can dial in. The biggest drawback to this pedal is that there is a significant sound level drop when the pedal is on. The tone is clean, but it makes for unneccesary work to have to adjust volume levels when you want some delay. Not something that is easily done on a pedal board. An ideal pedal should not have any change in output
    It looks sturdier on a webpage, and is surprisingly lightweight. Doesn't have the weight of a Boss or TC pedal. Oh, and it's Made in China," not NYC as the graphic would imply. Just take the back cover off and there's a prominent ""Made in China"" stamp. So this is a touch misleading for those musicians who are partial to true American-made products.
    Decent pedal and easy to use", but the volume drop is a real downer.

    if i had only one pedal...

    By deckles

    from good ol' georgia

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO #1 Echo Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    ....it would probably be this onethe only bias part of this is that my wonderful amp does lack a reverb channel.HOWEVER...that is also what makes this pedal so fantastic. i can achieve a plethora of different reverbs with this because i have spent more than two seconds with the pdeal. ive owned it for idk how many years, probably since a few months after it came out and after all the pedals ive ever played it surprises me still. if it had a reverse switch then id pay an extra hundred dollars for it and worship it

    Electro-Harmonix #1 Echo

    By BlueStrat

    from Des Moines, IA

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO #1 Echo Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I consider the #1 Echo to be one of the better purchases I've made in the last couple of years. I originally purchased this pedal because of its ability to replicate a particular rockabilly sound I was after, but I soon found that it seamlessly fits into nearly any genre. This is an incredibly warm-sounding pedal with very little signal degradation, and it's become a mainstay on my pedalboard. Personally, I find the pedal's simplicity to be one of its strong points. It takes very little time to get it dailed in, and it works well in conjunction with other effects. If I need a very specific delay time, such as 800ms, I simply run a Boss DD-5 along side the #1 Echo. However, absent the need for a specific delay time, this is the delay pedal I use the most. I play either a late-80's Fender Strat or a Gibson ES-137 through a variety of Fender tube amplifiers, including an old Concert, a Blues Deluxe, and a Blues Jr. Give this pedal a try. I really don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Totally cool.

    By straydogstrut

    from San Diego

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO #1 Echo Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This is a pretty sweet delay pedal. It does only have the three knobs, so its kind of a set it and forget pedal, but you can still play with it a lot. Very clear sounding until you put the feedback know past 3 oclock, then you might get actual feedback. As for the volume drop thing, I never had that problem, so maybe it all just has to do with your guitar/amp/other pedals, cuz mine is great.

    Not sure about it

    By tc-fC6Bk

    from Ohio

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO #1 Echo Digital Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I got one of these for Christmas a few years ago. I couldn't ever dial in a decent sounding delay.It also had issues with volume loss. I sold it and bought the MXR Carbon Copy - (Nice!). I like EHX but the pedal I owned was not so sweet. Nice metal housing on this one.
