T-Rex Engineering Replicator Tape Echo Guitar Effect Pedal & Case B Stock

Factory B Stock

May have some light scratches if any. 

Tested and Fully Functional.

Comes with box, manual, power supply, extra tape cartridge and carry bag.

This tape delay is properly set up.  However, you may need to adjust the tape heads to get your desired sound after shipping.   There is a thumb screw on the tape release spring loaded switch that adjusts the height of the heads.  If they are adjusted too far away, the delay will go away.  If they are adjusted too close, they will pinch the tape and it will not move.  The tape itself may not move the cartridge wheels, this is normal.  The tape cartridges have an adjustment screw located on the wheel to change the tension of the tape.   If the tension is too slack, the tape will be a bit sloppy and not move the wheels, but still work.  If the tension is too high, the tape will not move.   Please keep all this in mind when spending your first day with the Replicator.  This unit has been thoroughly tested and works perfectly.  Tapes do wear and are not covered under warranty, nor do we know how much time they have been in use. 

REPLICATOR TAPE ECHO

There once was a time when a ”bucket brigade” was a handful of firemen and digital processing was only used by computers the size of a house. Echo effects were largely done by using magnetic tape run by a motor – it was such a cool sounding concept, but the size, weight and ease of use was always a challenge for the players.
That was then, this is now!
The Replicator is T-Rex Engineering´s take on the ultimate tape echo unit, complete with a motor, magenetic heads and a tape cartridge. The goal was to make a tape echo unit that could nail the sound quality of the old echo units, but surpass them in features. Size, ease of use and super-fast tape replacing were obvious areas of improvement, but we also put in tap tempo, two playback heads for three output modes and a chorus mode that modulates the pitch of the echos.
 

Two expression pedal inputs allow the player to control delay time and feedback in real time for instant synth-noise at your feet.
The tape cartridge (available seperately) can be replaced in seconds and the high headroom of the circuit will allow you to use this pedal for processing line signals as well (keyboards, P.A. aux sends, preamps, etc.).
The difference between a super precise, accurate digital echo and the Replicator is that there is a certain amount of unpredictability in the sound of tape. It has its own life, almost. And that personality translates into a very natural sounding echo that we think feels more like an instrument than a sound effect.
