Catalinbread Belle Epoch Deluxe EP-3 Tape Echo Emulation Effects Pedal Black and Silver
The Belle Epoch Deluxe features the exact circuitry of the EP-3, from the 22-volt power rail to the JFET preamp, to the mixer stage, high-gain silicon transistor-based record and playback amplifiers, and feedback loop. The only differences are the record and playback heads, with a 24-bit high-fidelity digital delay line taking the place of the tape. It also has all-discrete, through-hole construction with orange drop 225P capacitors, carbon composition resistors, germanium diodes and other premium parts. The original EP-3 was used as a musical instrument unto itself, and that same versatility and potential is captured in the Belle Epoch Deluxe.
