Faithful Sonic Recreation Of The EP-3 Tape Echo...

The Catalinbread Belle Epoch Tape Echo, has tape echo sounds so authentic you’d swear
there was tape inside the pedal! Inspired by the Maestro Echoplex, EP-3 model, perhaps
the most famous tape delay ever, the Belle Epoch features everything we love about the
EP-3 in a small, maintenance free pedal format. We felt that a “tape echo” pedal was much
more than just a standard digital delay with some “filtering” on the repeats. There are a lot
of subtle and not-so-subtle traits of the Echoplex that needed to be implemented in order to
be authentic. The preamp, the self-oscillation character, the ability to control the “record level”
of the signal hitting “tape”, the wow and flutter, the way the repeats decay, the way the circuit
interfaces with the amp and other pedals – all these things were important to get right. The
original unit was used as a musical instrument unto itself and this is what we captured with
the Belle Epoch.
