I'm a big fan of late Rainer Ptacek, a "bluesman" who was playing on a National guitar with a "vintage tape delay echo blue box", and I was wondering what it could be...The main info is that he used that since the 80's (at least..), and that he could achieve 1-2 second loops, stop, play again the same loop, overdubbing it...
Ask that to Watkins Music, and Mr.Charlie Watkins answered "I don't think that would be a Copicat - which always used a fixed 10.5 inch fixed loop. And the only blue ones we made were 1958 and would have been difficult to modify. We did make a transistor model with endless cassette and play back and dubbing facilities but it was a disaster and I dropped it after making about 50.".
Ani idea/info appreciated...

There are a no. of models that can do endless play and overdubs , eg. Simms Watts Echo Deck , Watkins Halle Cat (thats a mixer though) and the higher versions of the stage echos and space echos , i think.
If its very old , it might be an Echoplex , but im not fully sure if they had these faetures or not. You may want to have a look at the specs for the klemt echolette alos , as theat may also do it.
Peace , nem.
