Catalinbread Belle Epoch & Echorec

Some like 'em and some don't, but I bet everyone has at least a couple — Analog Delay, Digital Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tube Overdrive, Transistor Overdrive, Fuzz, Octave Fuzz, Tremolo, Vibrato, Compressor and the list goes on!

Nah, just your run of the mill cry baby, I love the sound tho - and I'm *really good* with the thingy.... lol....

Hey, I gotta get another echorec.
I tried the setup I have (with the carbon copy feeding into the echorec) with singing, and it's *exactly* what I've been looking for - for years.

I have to really dial the mix back so it's ever so slightly heard when I pause but it made my voice so thick and juicy it's just hard to believe. On really long notes my voice just sparkles! So awesome it gives me the willies!!!! It really gives you the feeling that you're on stage singing live with lots of stuff for your voice to bounce off of.

I already have an extra carbon copy for the Mic, so at least I don't need to make two purchases, lol....

Well that is interesting, is it like a doubling but not shifted?

It's kinda like a phase shift that is based on the vibrato of the notes you're singing with long notes, with shorter notes it's a lot more like singin' in the shower :wink:

Sounds interesting.. I'm going to look into an mxr m238 iso brick. If it fixes the ground loops and can supply a few hungry pedals I may get two. It gets pretty good reviews and seems to be a good bang for the buck @ $150.

I'm going to have to curtail my spending, lol, just too many deals lately

I picked up a used catalinbread echorec last night for the mic $186 and it's painted blue, some special edition or other....
Image

and while I was perusing I noticed a TC T2 reverb with some pretty special effects. It's dsp but pretty damn good dsp. Everywhere else has it for $149, these guys have it for $99:
http://proguitarshop.com/tc-electronic-trinity-2.html

check out the demos at the bottom of this page
http://www.tcelectronic.com/t2-reverb/

I think they're running a carbon copy (or similar) before the reverb too. Each demo starts off with a sample of what's going on before engaging the T2 and you can hear an echo

And then this morning I won an auction for 2 matched tun-sol 6l6's with brown base for $23.00 :shock: :shock: :shock:

Image

Woof, man, I gotta knock it off. Also got an old 6l6 organ amp to harvest the iron for the 6g9-b I'm cloning, another $100. HUGE Iron, enormous stacks of beautiful iron :mrgreen:

Damn, I'm WAY over budget. I'm glad it's only Christmas once a year!!!!!!!!!

Have you tried the echorec at 18v? I have the mxr supply on the way and I'd like to use 18v with it to free up another 9v out. I'll try both, just asking your take on it if you've tested both ways.

I was going to try that.....

I have several 18v power supplies, but it just sorta fell off the to do list and I forgot about it

heh :wink:

ok, i just sent myself an email to remind me to try this - since I'll be setting up the new one for the mic I can plug into that to do the comparison

Silence finally.. I put the mxr iso brick on the effects board. It made a big difference in the noise floor. Very very close to plugging straight into the amp. I'll probably pick up another for the other board to power to the dirt pedals, vibe and wah.

I have the voodoo labs pedal power 2, very quiet. Should be for the price I paid for it! The MXR is $50 less

grumble... grumble... :dumass: :say_what:

Pedal Power 2 may be a better pedal, it gets pretty good reviews. Reverb has these discounted right now to $128.

Next year, I'd like to trim down essentials what I use to one board to maybe one of these or a pedal train.
