A classic effect, built for modern users - the EF-X2 couples the sounds you know and love, with features and reliability unimaginable in the past. In designing the EF-X2, the team here at Echo Fix began with the knowledge and insight gained from our work as the world's foremost experts in spare parts, servicing and repairing vintage tape echo units. Put simply, we know how tape echos should sound and operate.

We spent three years prototyping, rigorously testing, and meticulously designing in secret - while accounting for every possible application. We couldn't find a new production motor good enough so we made our own and invested in the latest high tech machinery to custom balance them in house here at Echo Fix. We could not find tape heads that sounded good enough so we had custom tape heads manufactured to our exact specs.

One of the other important things when it comes to reliable tape echo operation is the tape loop. We thoroughly researched tape and have a tape formulation that not only lasts a very long time but sounds incredible as well, that is how far we were willing to go to make the EF-X2 reliable and sound great!

What we have built is a warm sounding tape echo with a modern feature set that is at home in the professional recording studio, live guitar rig, bedroom production setup or in any other context you can dream up, we cannot wait for the EF-X2 to become an integral part of your creative process.

"During recording I am usually put off using tape echo units as I don't want to fall in love with a sound that I will not be able to replicate on tour. The EF-X2 enables me to record and tour with an amazing, consistent sound due to the quality and sturdiness of the design and construction." JOJI MALANI - GANG OF YOUTHS

IN LOVE

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I am IN LOVE with these delays. They way exceeded my expectations and I am notoriously picky about equipment. These things are incredibly easy to use, sound beautiful, and most importantly are super reliable and predictable. I use them on every mix session. Mike Bridavsky - Russian Recording

I can’t imagine going back to another older Space Echo

With the Space Echo being my ‘desert island’ effect, I was stoked when I heard that Echo Fix manufactured a new unit that had all the vintage charm of a tape delay with modern fidelity and dependability... I was one of those Tone-Freaks who lugged around an old RE-201 on tour — The thing was always giving me problems so I upgraded and got me a new EF X2! I can’t imagine going back to another older Space Echo... this thing has got to be the best tone acquisition I think I’ve ever made. It’s already been all over the new Vista Kicks record and you’ll for sure be seeing it on stage. Thanks Echo Fix

A great sounding tape echo

There are very few people who understand all the elements that go into a great sounding tape echo in the way Shane does. Multi head performance, preamp circuit, compander circuit, spring reverb, eq, sound on sound, the list is long and they all have to be dead on if it’s going to be a contender. Then if you actually want to be able to use it on more than just an occasional track in the studio it needs to be quiet, robust, and have comprehensive options for external control. When I First saw the Echo-Fix I had to try and temper my excitement, because it’s very rare that a product which promises so much actually delivers. Needless to say, Shane has nailed it and delivered a classic which captures everything I love about my vintage solid state tape delays in a package that is robust, reliable and ready for the road - Daniel Steinhardt (That Pedal Show)

So unbelievably impressed

We got the unit in the mail this last week and I’m so unbelievably impressed. Lost for words really. This is the best sounding delay we’ve ever owned and we started putting it on records already. Still getting the hang of it but it is so versatile there are so many ways to use it I can’t believe it. 

You all really changed the way we make music.

Thrilled to bits!

I'm absolutely thrilled to bits with it!

Thank you for making this thing! It's everything I had hoped it would be and more.

I didn't really know whether to believe all the fuss about real tape echo before ordering so it was quite a leap of faith, but so far so good and I'm the most excited I have been in ages about a new bit of gear. It's so much better than all the delay pedals I've tried over the years.

Before purchasing it I wasn't that fussed about the reverb and chorus features but you've nailed them. I've already got great tube reverb on my guitar amp (Swart) but the ones on the EF-X2 sound equally as wonderful. The mix of the DSP effects with the tape sounds great.

Thanks again, not just for a great product but for being a real pleasure to deal with.
