Binson Echorec Repainting
This photograph shows a test panel paint job for a customer who wanted their Binson Echorec echo-delay machine to be restored to ‘as new’ condition. To achieve this beautiful finish two coats are applied to the bare metal. A metallic silver base coat is applied first and then this is overcoated with a translucent gold. There’s a huge amount of depth to the finish and variability in the gold second coat that gives it an almost ‘sunburst’ appearance where the paint gets a little darker towards the edges. It’s a very challenging process to get right, however it looks spectacular when done properly. The work was undertaken by Brian Hammond of Potteries Powder Coating, a local company who do the powder coating for all Effectrode pedals.
