The Minivan Echo, from Dwarfcraft Devices, is a distinctly dark echo effect that utilizes an ancient PT2399 chip that lends the pedal a distinctly analog sound. Sure, the pedal is capable of traditional, albeit shorter, delays that cover the most ideal ranges of the circuit. However, by turning the knob just a bit further, the pedal slips into sludgy, mangled territory that can eventually reach cacophonous levels of self-oscillation.
Users can connect an expression pedal for versatile control over the feedback amount, or insert a stereo to dual mono 1/4” cable to introduce external effects into the delay line. Different effects will have remarkably divergent impacts when mangled by the Minivan, so feel free to experiment with as many sources as possible.
