Fulltone Custom Shop Tube Tape Delay
Excellent condition, never gigged, comes with carry case, instructions & virtually as new tape cartridge. Hand Made in the USA.
In my opinion this is the best delay available…. With 3 tubes in the circuit the device also functions as an incredibly detailed, warm and rich pre amp that adds a whole heap of tube goodness to your tone! The unit can be run in bypass mode and controlled using a looper foot switch which gives you lots of options. Using the guitar level control, you can boost the front end of your amp with anything from a volume lift to a mild boost to a full tube preamp drive. (Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, John Mayer, Robert Plant, Vance Powell, Tom Petty, Buddy Miller, Jack White, Dan Auerbach, T-bone Burnette, Rich Robinson, John Fogerty and many others agree!)
The sound of the delay is like nothing else, no digital unit comes close to its tube driven warmth, the complexity of the delay and its shimmering beauty. The TTE uses real 12AX7 tubes for the Record and Playback functions (plus a 12AT7 in the Erase/Bias section), not to mention a handwired audio path. From a quick slapback to over two seconds of delay and space like echoes the TTE does it all. The unit is built like a tank using only the best components. Its simply a work of art.
From the FullTone site:
FullTone Tape echoes are the best sounding and feeling echo devices you will ever play through. It's not easy or cheap hand-building Tape Echoes in the USA, in California, none the less. It is an intense labor of love and a source of pride.
The Fulltone TubeTapeEcho is quite literally what would happen if you took a vintage EP-2 Echoplex:
*ran the preamp at over 200 volts
* put better heads on it
*improved the tape transport
*gave it 2 tape speeds
*put better quality tape on it
* installed an intelligent torque (and speed) adjusting DC powered transport motor.
* got rid of the hum by running the filaments on 12VDC,
*made it stereo
*gave it true bypass
*got rid of the Ep-2's sound-robbing Echo Cancel feature and replaced it with a relay-activated cancel function allowing for any cable length to the footswitch with no degradation to the sound of the repeats.
*gave it a separate Instrument and Echo volume control
*and put a tone control on it affecting only the repeats.
