Vintage and Boutique Tape Echo Units

Not every recording engineer of yesteryear had the luxury of recording in a real echo chamber, so the clever ones decided to use the magnetic tape they were already recording with to create a similar effect. Soon thereafter, artists and engineers were experimenting with these tape effects to create impossible-sounding delays and previously unheard forms of echo. The best units were prized for their versatility and unique echo types. Vintage tape echoes later fell out of favor with the arrival of integrated circuits and digital technology, but a fanatical market has sprung up to recapture the gritty and warm sound of tape echo -- find yours within this handpicked selection of old and new tape echoes here on Reverb.
