Gurus Echosex 2 T7E Echo Pedal

Old Italian echo with more versatility! The Gurus Echosex 2 T7E pedal delivers delay time up to 740ms, with no mechanical parts for absolute reliability.
With the Echosex 2, Gurus wanted to recreate the magic of the "old Italian Echo" units, but with more versatility, and the option to set the delay time like a modern pedal.

The result is the Echosex 2 T7E. The T7E uses no mechanical parts for absolute reliability in any condition, with no maintenance needed. The wide frequency response of 7 Hz to 161000 kHz make it a modern piece of gear, able to be connected to today highest professional studio grade equipment. With the "Motor Speed Adj" feature, you have the possibility to increase the overall delay time, reaching the 740ms, keeping the multi-heads combinations in sync, so to make it suitable for a larger number of musical applications than its predecessor.

All features and controls of the Old Binson Echorec 2 T7E model 12AU7B and a Pure Class A Preamp Cascode J-FET ensure the highest audio quality possible. Includes multi-heads with 12 position switches + 3-way selector for echo, rep, swell mode. True bypass or Spillover mode selectable. Suitable for any kind of instruments or signals.

Enclosed in the same dimensions of the famous 1959 Double-decker pedal (8" x 5" x 2"), suitable for an easy fit in a pedalboard, the Echosex 2 T7E is not only a reissue of the "Old Italian Echo", but an improvement of it.

"Arrived Broken."
When I opened the shipping box, the pedal box looked like it has lived a hard life and been thrown around a lot. When I plugged the pedal in, it barely passed any sound. The switch sounded like something from the )0s, the pots felt pretty fragile and besides not working, this thing didn’t inspire confidence that it was rigged at all. From what j can gather, the company is no longer in business, so that’s strike one. zZounds apparently only has one unit and no specific date on when another. Ight arrive, so my options are to either wait indefinitely or take a refund...neither of which is ideal... I’m bummed out. This is supposed to be as close to the Binson Echorec 2 as you can get, but I’ll never know.
