The Faux Tape Echo delay has become a staple in Nashville and beyond, from masterful session guitarists to studio "house sound" collections and of course seen on stages worldwide! Based around very carefully selected and very rigorously tested PT2399 delay chips, the Faux AnalogEcho and Faux Tape Echo circuits combine the note clarity of a sophisticated digital delay with an all-analog dry path (unaffected signal) and magnificent all-analog tone-shaping and modulation circuitry.

What does that actually mean for musicians? The answer: everything. With Wampler's hybrid design approach, you get the best of both worlds. You get note clarity, lower noise, and longer delay times from digital delays. You get the lovely warmth and little, exquisite touches that are usually reserved for analog delays. Nearly every part of the pedal and all of its major functions are analog. The "delay line" is the only digital part of the signal path. It alone being digital brings clarity and focus to the task in a way that analog delay line chips can't really match.

But everything else, all the absolutely vital filtering to carefully finish the sound is pure analog. Every aspect of the modulation that gives the Faux Tape Echo pedal a unique function and tone and makes it desirable for people who want their delay tone to sound as good as tape delay units but without all the maintenance, supplies, and hassle? Totally analog. Your all-important fundamental dry tone is 100% analog, too.

From country slap-back to ambient washes to straight-ahead rock and metal delay, the hybrid approach makes one pedal that can do it all.

This new version of the Faux Tape Echo takes everything great about the original, and adds to it that much-requested tap tempo functionality that users have asking for, as well as a new idea in emulating the elusive and beautiful character that people look for in classic tape echo units. The time has come to unveil the Faux Tape Echo that everyone has been waiting for.

Truly a great delay pedal

By Garry

from New Jersey

Owned a few delay "devices" loved tape stuff in the old days, pain to operate and to keep operating properly and most modern units suffered from tone suck not this one, fantastic tone, ease of operation, don't knoow about durability at this point but the construction seems top notch. This pedal is perfect for my needs, totally happy with my purchase and GC did a great job of processing my order very quickly even over the Christmas season, totally a great purchase all around! Price is a little high compared to overseas mfg. but when you consider the fantastic tone and what appears to be great quality AND built in the USA, pretty easy decision to make, Wampler......that guy knows his stuff!

Great Pedal

By Tim

from Las Vegas, NV

Save your $ and buy this pedal instead of the others in the lower price point. I own a Boss DD-3 and an MXR Carbon Copy and lost interest in both fairly quick. This pedal produces a very organic tone that the others can't. Many options of sounds to choose from and isn't as complicated as it might appear. Use it for echos or old style tape type delays. I've been playing around with it a lot and it sounds great where ever the settings are. Like anything else, you get what you pay for and Wampler pedals sound awesome. Give it a try and you'll see what I'm talking about.
