Rackmount version of the new 100% analogue tape echo with Spring Reverb and BBD Chorus.

Ready to Ship!

Now with an analogue BBD Chorus & Spring Reverb, the rackmount EF-X3R and tabletop EF-X3 boast a 100% analogue signal path.

Information from Echo Fix:

After the successful release of the EF-X2, this and the tabletop EF-X3 are the latest offering in Echo Fix’s line of tape delays. Built by the same team to the highest quality, this new machine includes many of our most requested features and builds on the momentum and trust gained after 3 years of making the EF-X2.

Stereo Output via Direct Head Outputs

Individual outputs for each head offer flexibility never-before-seen in a tape echo, with the ability to achieve a classic Stereo Ping-Pong delay effect by panning each head externally.

Unmatched Reliability

On top of this, we’ve implemented a new auto tape stop circuit to extend tape life.

Same Team, Same Peace of Mind

For nearly 15 years, we’ve been keeping tape echos alive. Now that we make our own, our standards are higher than ever. Rest assured that your machine will be the most capable, reliable tape echo on the market, supported by a team with some of the best customer service in the industry.

It’s Alive

If you’ve been in a room with one of our units, you’ll know what we mean by this. Used as an effect, they simply make everything sound better. But turn up the echo volume, dial in some feed-back and watch as our unit self-oscillates into life and becomes an instrument more than an effect. The EF-X3R will change the way you make music.
