I just picked up the Dunlop EP103 Echoplex Delay pedal, as well. Like all my MXR Pedals, I just scribble in an "11" on all the knob parameters to make them go just a little more. Works like a charm...

;)

I'm sure my pick slides will sound just like Tom Scholz once I get done "modding" my unit!

I wish you the best of luck with that!

Be prepared though, it's all surface mount technology so have your magnifying glass ready.

It does sound VERY close to a real echoplex when it comes to just straight up delays and echos. But when you get into trying to warp the sound and do HSP effects, that's where it falls short. I mean, some effects aren't bad, but pick slides just don't sound right for sure. It definitely has the warble, which works great for some effects, but not so great for others.

I'm pretty convinced now that nothing will ever sound the same as using a real tape echo.


Agreed! Back to the Fulltone......
