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

What an incredible piece of equipment

What an incredible piece of equipment. It has survived a trip around the world and sounds incredible, so 4 stars for that easy. The fifth and final star goes for their great customer service. Shane himself will respond to messages and in an extremely timely fashion. The unit was supposed to ship sooner, but becuase of the pandemic had to ship later. GIVEN the current situation, they were still able to deliver and it only took a week extra. No complaints, great seller. Will continue to support!

Such a fine piece of gear

This has always been the effect I've wanted since I was a teenager back in the 70's. The only difference now is these are built rock solid, sounds perfect, and have a lot more features. Un-like older units, this is super quiet and versatile. The sounds produced are natural, clean, and ambient. Such a fine piece of gear, no doubt, truly worth the investment. Shane and his team are awesome. They provide a great level of service & communications, with an exceptional attention towards detail.

Superbly well built and wonderful sounding echo unit

Superbly well built and wonderful sounding echo unit, from an outstanding seller. Able to get the unit built and shipped from Australia to the US despite all the virus restrictions in both countries. When I had a question, which turned out to be user error, the company owner called direct and talked me through it.

Excellent

Love it!!

I'm honestly a bit of a novice when it comes to tape echos. That being said I still found it easy to get used to the functionality of the unit. I really do love this machine and use it as much as I can. I like experimenting with the sound on sound function the most and getting the perfect amount of feedback to make the repeats go on and on without creating a over powering hum. It takes some getting use too so I can see why these aren't for everybody. I guess if you have an expectation that its going to sound just like a tape echo from the 70's or early 80's then this may not be for you, especially if you get the Echofix without the spring reverb mod. Old tape is going to sound different than new. All in all I have no issues with the unit it is clearly well made and designed. Haven't needed to clean the heads yet but the good people at Echofix.com threw in some extra tape and some long q-tips etc... for ordering their machine. 5 stars all around!!!
