The Echoman, designed by guitar effects guru Howard Davis, is a simplified monaural version of the Memory Analog Delay. It is a state-of-the-art design based on Davis’s highly successful Deluxe Memory Man, acknowledged as among the best if not THE best analog delay pedal.
Up to 600 msec of delay time with no aliasing distortion. Buffered bypass with a 900K input impedance guarantees no tone sucking (loss of highs) due to pickup loading. Wide bandwidth – good high frequency response even at long delay settings. Feedback control allows self-oscillation if desired. Blend control allows adjusting the output from dry signal only to delayed signal only. High-tech filtering and noise reduction circuitry guarantee an excellent signal to noise ratio, even at long delay settings.
• Designed by guitar effects guru Howard Davis • Time, blend, modulation and feedback controls • Chorus/Vibrato effect • True bypass • 9V DC power supply, can also work with out power (no LED) • Current Draw: 10mA • Compact, rugged metal chassis • Size: 46w x 94d x 50h (mm)
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Connect the 9VDC center negative adaptor to the power in jack, guitar or other instrument to the input, and amplifier to the output. If the power polarity is incorrect the pedal will not work, but will not be damaged. With the MODULATION DEPTH turned all the way down, set DELAY, BLEND, and FEEDBACK for the echo effect you want. If desired, turn up the MODULATION DEPTH and set the MODULATION switch for the effect speed you want, chorus or vibrato.
Other settings FOR CHORUS EFFECT Set BLEND for equal levels of dry and delayed signal, DELAY very short,MODULATION DEPTH high. FEEDBACK can be added to enhance the effect.
FOR VIBRATO The delayed signal only is modulated. Set controls for the sound desired.
FOR REVERB EFFECTS Set DELAY short, MODULATION DEPTH all the way down or low, and BLEND for equal dry and delayed signal levels. Set the FEEDBACK high for multiple repeats that slowly die out. Feedback settings just before self-oscillation occurs will produce a "bathtub reverb" effect that can be varied with the delay and modulation settings.• ABY can be used in two ways, the signal path can flow from A/B to Y, or from Y to A/B
