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

Boss

There’s nothing quite like a real tape echo, and this machine delivers.

Now we need to figure a way to make it stereo!

I am inspired to make new music with the EF-X2

I previously bought an old Roland RE-150 and was not in love. It needed work to bring it up to 100%, and I never really got a chance to find out if I loved having a Space Echo. I emailed Shane, Director of Echo Fix, for his opinion in if I should scrap the machine (not literally), try his Ef-X2, or try to work on the Re-150. He gave me some of the most honest feedback I could have hoped for, and at no point did I feel like he was pushing me towards buying his product. I decided to sell the Re-150 and take the plunge for the Ef-X2. Spoilers, I am glad I did. The machine is all the fun of the old Space and Stage Echos, and none of the headache. I am mainly synth driven, but I couldn't resist plugging a stratocaster into when it arrived. That clean tone through the pre-amp killed me, all of a sudden I wanted to play guitar again. It sounds great running as the main effect loop from my board as well. I heard an interview with David Gilmour where he discussed picking up a different guitar from time to time will inspire you in new ways, the EF-X2 should be thought of in this way. Yes, there are digital recreations of tape echo, but the tactile sensation of the knobs and the tape will inspire you in a different way than a digital recreation. Make no mistake, this is not a budget piece of gear, but as I age I am realizing that 1 nice piece of kit is superior to having an entire effects rack in a stomp box. I am inspired to make new music with the EF-X2, Thanks Shane (he really…

Unbelievable.

Yes. It is that good. Been purchasing from Echo Fix for years and have been loving my refurbished RE-201, but the EF-X2 is on another level entirely. Using this on everything now!
