WEM Copicat Tape Delay

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

Super solid tape delay if you’re a drone head and you’re on a budget and/or willing to put up with a little maintenance. First off, the unit itself works, the motor runs, all the playback heads work as do both inputs and the included foot switch.

I guess the biggest thing to note about this unit would be the fact that the erase head seems to not really do its job that well. Whenever the tape completes a loop, it takes quite a while for the delay to disappear, which it never completely does. You can always sort of faintly hear the sound in the tape but it just gets murkier and murkier (which now that I think about it could also be attributed to the tape itself). Regardless, I was making drones with the unit anyway so I never bothered to really look into getting it checked out. It’s my assumption that the sustain knob is supposed to dial the amount of repeats back, but it doesn’t seem to do anything which I guess also ties into the erase head, but it’s still another thing to potentially look into.

The play back heads can be fairly faint and lofi sounding depending on the tape you’re using for it, in my case handmade loops with very inexpensive tape (which I’ll throw in free of charge).

The plastic panel on the bottom of the unit is also damaged and the bottom panel of the foot switch is missing. For what it’s worth, I’ve had no issue with the footswitch as it’s basically the cable going directly into the switch itself (its a very strong connection) and the plastic on these specific back panels are known to be notoriously brittle, so much so that I’ve seen brand new replacement panels being sold before, unfortunately I can’t find any listings anymore.

So that’s pretty much it, if you’re willing to deal with these quirks, you’re in for a real treat. Do feel free to message me with any questions, thanks!
