i have never used one myself but <A HREF="http://www.harmony-central.com/Effects/ ... l">harmony central</A> has a number of user reviews. <BR>some of these people are not very convinced of it. i guess you should try it out before buying..
HM, go to the musicstore and try it (well, hopefully you have local music instruments store which has a place with bunch of guitar-pedals where you can plug'n play). I would not buy it before hearing. It maybe ok delay for general use, however it looks to me like this product is a sort of a cheap-trick (i maybe wrong thou...), but my wild guess is that it is more about nostalgia for a look and feel of it and not much about the actuall result. In the ugly(est) case it may be just a "smart" company move to make common digital effect-box more attractive (in a unique way) for buyer, another words there are so many vary just digital delays, but there is only one of a kind "real echo" <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":)"> <BR>Here's quote from their own site: <BR><FONT COLOR="ff0000">Those tape echoes of the 50’s sure are cool. But they just don’t hold up. <BR>Reel Echo™ gives the perfect simulation of those great 50’s tape echoes. With some important added features:... <BR></FONT> <BR>When somebody say "<FONT COLOR="ff0000">perfect</FONT> simulation" it makes me wonder and "red flag" is up - watch out, be careful ...<IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":)"> <BR>************* <BR> <BR> <BR>/respects, <BR>/Mike Zee aka Dr.ZEE
also, <BR>from perspective of dub-pruduction (in general), this may be a very good addition in studio. Here's what I mean. If you look at it not from the point of trying to have Real Tape Echo, but simply as it IS. Let's say: this is a digital delay with a unique layout/design of specific parameter-control, so it is a great tool for dub-creativity in general. ...another words, use it not trying to recreate Real Echo, but to CREATE period <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":)"> <BR>It looks like Disappointment and 'negative' reviews are comming from 'expectation' to actually hear a REAL THING comming from a 'fiction' .... <BR>********** <BR>Also I really don't see any reason for this unit to be priced over $99 .... <BR> <BR>/Mike Zee
Hi,... I just got interrested to hear of any <BR>possible experrience, I don´t just order ;-) <BR> <BR>Line-6 got a rack-version also of some delay <BR>pedal with "retro-sound" also this one got <BR>mixed rewievs on harmony-central, but still <BR>it is more temptating than the danelectro <BR>I also got the RE-150 real thing now just <BR>not got time to test probably the next few <BR>mounths,...... <BR> <BR>Kocha uses the spring-king on some of his numbers there is some old postings somew- <BR>here here about the subject, I think it <BR>sounds ok on his tunes, so in lack of any <BR>real spring I did order straight away, it <BR>is a short type, and I plan to supply <BR>with some longer ones, as found in the <BR>19" MAM-spring, I was close to get a RE- <BR>501 last week but missed it, it was 150 kilomiters away and I have no-longer car, <BR>he would not send :-( , i also consder <BR>the new Vermona thing some time later if <BR>money allow, I have borrowed a RE-301 in <BR>orde to test the spring, this will tell <BR>if the Roland have an ok spring-sound, if <BR>not I will just keep RE-150 (tape-only) <BR>and keep look after a seccond-hand MAM, <BR>I have a phone-number on some old repair- <BR>man with lots of old tanks, I am able to <BR>build from those but fear it takes up to <BR>much time so spring-king for now <BR> <BR>yes I will post when I have some real <BR>experiense with the spring, but listen <BR>up the kocha tunes might tell you more <BR>than my own subjective opinion, I think <BR>a short tank might be usefull to drums <BR> <BR>Thanks for response to both <BR> <BR>Henrik
The springs in roland's echos are very "boingy" and are described buy some as cheap. For dub, this could be a good thing. I only used it for reverb when I had no other spring verbs. <BR> <BR>I keep the reverb turned off on my space echo most of the time, you cant re-inject the signal with it switched on or you get a big "howl" of feedback.
Hi I have recieved the Spring King, nice <BR>sound on guitar, no tests on drums until <BR>later, I will try to post some test later <BR>perhaps on the dubroom also so files can <BR>be attached, seemingly Mr Zee did not go <BR>and have a listen on Kocha´s tunes :-) <BR> <BR>If / When I find the time that is <BR>maybe I can even compare to roland on <BR>drum-response <BR> <BR>btw real-echo ships at 99 euro now but I <BR>decide to go for line 6 Pro echo in case <BR>I will try a simulator <BR> <BR>Henrik
Test started at the dubrooms board in Tech- <BR>Talk Forum <BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.xsorbit1.com/users/mdread/in ... 96&start=0" TARGET="_top">http://www.xsorbit1.com/users/mdread/in ... start=0</A>
I use both danelectro Spring + Reel Echo. <BR> <BR>You can hear it on my 2 last tracks (and perhaps older but i don't remember). <BR> <BR>If you want more info you can contact-me. <BR> <BR>Dub WISE POWA!! <BR> <BR>KoCha <BR>From the Almighty-Dub.com Studio
Yep <BR>Well just spend more time with your ears lads, <BR>Bla Bla Bla, just drift out a bit,I'm a sound man <BR>(live).I've got a real echo, when i stick it on the console i get weard looks,but when i dance on it ah. after the concert "uhh what the fuck was that" <BR>just a good bog looking echo man. So cut the bla bla and use your ears. <BR> love you all
