The Echosex 2 brings back the legendary sound of the Binson Echorec sans reliability issues!
Individually numbered units!
The Gurus Echosex 2 implements a Binson Unit for a characteristically psychedelic sound. This particular edition is numbered to 500 units, with each individual number engraved on the exterior.
The Echosex 2 is supremely-engineered pedal consisting of a combination of different components. These include a tube preamp design, an expanding distortion resulting from recurring feedback, and inherent low-level noise and grit that allow for a distinctly filthy sound. On top of that, the pedal itself is constructed from supremely durable material and boasts a double triode 12AX7B.
As far as front panel controls are concerned, the Echosex offers control over all crucial parameters—including Volume Echo, Age of Damage, Length of Swell, and Bass/Treble.
Volume Echo is essentially a mix control over the dry/wet signal where the latter is mixed into the former in increments up to 50%.
Length of Swell affects the repeat amount in relation to the feedback, it begins at 1 and ends somewhere in self-oscillating oblivion. This control works in tandem with the Bass/Treble control in order to saturate the repeats in mind-numbing psychedelia, affording enhanced dynamics over every note.
Age of Damage alters the unit’s echo characteristics; more specifically, it changes the historical period emulated by the Echosex’s circuitry, transforming the resulting echoes into distinctly unique variations.
To generate repetitions, the Echosex sidesteps the sterility of many digital delays though the implementation of a PT2399 processor routed to the unit’s Bnison System, which consists of tube preamp-heads simulation-filters.
