If you are tired of wimpy sterile delay tones or just simply wish that your analog delay could get brighter, Wampler Faux Tape Echo Delay Guitar Effects Pedal
is the perfect choice! While the echoes are created digitally, the base signal is all analog and is extremely transparent. The echoes in the Faux Tape Echo are not sterile and brittle like a digital delay though - they are big, full and FAT.

The Faux Tape Echo is basically the Faux AnalogEcho crossed with a unique circuit the speeds up and slows down the echos, just like a real tape echo. It isn't modulating like other tape echo emulations though. Many of them sound like a chorus pedal in the background. While that is a cool sound in itself, a tape echo's ‘flutter’ created modulation tones by the recording tape slightly speeding up and slowing down - that's why Wampler duplicated the modulation circuit to do the same thing.
