DSP Reverb and Spring Reverb blend setting. Also allows Spring Reverb and Chorus blend.

Switch that converts the reverb section to chorus. This will allow you to switch back and forth from Reverb to Chorus effect.

Independent inputs (and level controls) for Instrument-level and Line-level applications, plus balanced input and output at rear.

Three echo playback heads, and a Sound On Sound Head giving 14 Head combination Settings in total.

Adjust the echo's Time and Feedback with Control Voltages (CV 0-5 volts) and compatible Expression Pedals.

Bass and Treble control of the echo signal.

Motor ON/Switch for tape slow down effect - or to conserve tape when only using the EF-X2's reverb or preamp.

What's new in MKII ?


After several years of production, the Echo Fix team has taken the opportunity to add a number of useful improvements to the EF-X2.

Toggle Switch Access:

The Spring Reverb and DSP switches can now be operated from the front panel. This makes it easier to toggle between the various effect settings, whether that’s spring reverb, DSP Reverb, DSP Chorus or a blend between analogue and digital effects. Users can also see the settings at a glance, without opening the lid of the tape echo.

Rear Outputs:

The rear panel houses 3 TRS balanced outputs, allowing users to access a duplicate direct signal, a wet effect only signal (of the spring reverb and DSP), and the echo signal without the direct.

Auto Tape Stop:

The rear panel also includes the Auto Tape Stop On/Off toggle switch. This was designed to extend the life of the tape loop, motor, and roller, by disengaging these features when the echo unit is powered on, but not in use. With this switch in the ON position, the motor will turn off and the pinch roller will disengage after not receiving signal for approximately 5 minutes. Once the unit receives signal, the unit will operate as normal.

A classic effect, built for modern users - the EF-X2 MKII couples the sounds you know and love, with features and reliability unimaginable in the past. In designing the EF-X2 MKII, the team here at Echo Fix began with the knowledge and insight gained from our work as the world's foremost experts in spare parts, servicing and repairing vintage tape echo units. Put simply, we know how tape echos should sound and operate.

We spent three years prototyping, rigorously testing, and meticulously designing in secret - while accounting for every possible application. We couldn't find a new production motor good enough so we made our own and invested in the latest high tech machinery to custom balance them in house here at Echo Fix. We could not find tape heads that sounded good enough so we had custom tape heads manufactured to our exact specs.

One of the other important things when it comes to reliable tape echo operation is the tape loop. We thoroughly researched tape and have a tape formulation that not only lasts a very long time but sounds incredible as well, that is how far we were willing to go to make the EF-X2 MKII reliable and sound great!

What we have built is a warm sounding tape echo with a modern feature set that is at home in the professional recording studio, live guitar rig, bedroom production setup or in any other context you can dream up, we cannot wait for the EF-X2 MKII to become an integral part of your creative process.
