Today I saw @BrooksCS mention that he picked up a Danelectro Reel Echo Tape Simulator and was loving it. I’ve never been too impressed with Danelectro stuff in the past (I think mostly related to durability – I have to say some sound great though), so I was surprised by this tweet, so I wanted to take a closer look. Right off the bat.. I was pretty impressed with some of the sounds I was listening to on YouTube and for the price… I think it’s worth a closer look.
Here is the official description of this pedal:
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.
