I’ve owned several tape echoes over the years, including a space echo and chorus echo. I strictly use them with guitar, drum machines and synths. The Echofix is the smoothest, and easiest to dial in. I especially love the onboard chorus, which helps fill out the sound. And the reverb is very versatile, especially having the spring and digital versions available. It’s not noisy like my Re-201, and the repeats are super clean—cleaner than any tape echo I’ve used. If you want to get into tape echoes, and want a great sounding reliable unit, I would wholeheartedly recommend getting the echofix!
