A herd of Binson baking in the shimmering heat of the Sorrento sun… well, Staffordshire actually. Here at Effectrode we don’t only build radical all-tube effects pedals, we also repair, restore and rebuild Binson ‘Echorecs’ to an exceptionally high standard. Now, our interest isn’t just a burning passion to keep these fabulous vintage echo-delay machines working at their best, it also revolves around a serious ongoing research & development effort to discover just what makes the Echorec tick. The ultimate goal: to design our own Effectrode echo-delay unit, the Echorec 3°. The Binson factory in Milan, Italy ceased production and closed its doors decades ago, and our dream is to resurrect the magnetic drum echo sound, create a modern magnetic tube delay machine that not only captures the complex, rich, 3-dimensional tone of the original Echorec, but surpasses it. A brand new Echorec was capable of generating beautiful, lush, crystal clear repeats with no loss of top-end and was also extremely stable with near-zero wow-and-flutter. To this end we’re currently going to great lengths to figure out how to machine and manufacture high-precision mechanical parts, such as the magnetic drum, idler wheels, etc to the same exacting standards as they were fabricated back in the 1950s and 60s. It’s incredibly difficult, problematic and expensive work, almost impossible, however we’re convinced our labours will ultimately yield something truly special, exceptional and magical. Stay tuned-in to this channel for further exciting developments in the wonderful world of all-tube effectification—great things are coming!
