Tape Echo Maintenance

Hello, I own an Evans EE-3. It's pretty sure not as good as the Space Echo (the tape loop is only about 50 cm long, and the motor doesn't change speed, you have to move the recording head like on the echoplex), but it's got its own flavour, and who said you need the Space Echo to make dub? However I...

I play guitar in a dub band, we are bass, guitar and drums. Lee Perry and King Tubby were also recording engineers, a...

Fisher Space Expander Restoration Checklist (please help me)

Hello, I've been reading this forum for ages, it's a very valuable source of knowledge, but I only recently registered to this forum, because I aquired an old Spaceexpander really cheap. Needless to say it is trashed, so I will need to put a lot work into it. My skills with the soldering iron are ok...
