Wampler Ego Compressor Pedal
The Faux Tape Echo delay has become a staple in Nashville and beyond from masterful session guitarists to studio house sound collections and of course seen on stages worldwide! Based around very carefully selected and very rigorously tested PT2399 delay chips the Faux AnalogEcho and Faux Tape Echo circuits allowed Brian to combine the note clarity of a sophisticated digital delay with an all-analog dry path (unaffected signal) and magnificent all-analog tone-shaping and modulation circuitry.

What does that actually mean for musicians? The answer to that is everything! With our hybrid design approach you get the best of both worlds. You get note clarity lower noise and longer delay times from digital delays. You get the lovely warmth and little exquisite touches that are usually reserved for analog delays. Nearly every part of the pedal all of its major functions are analog. The delay line is the only digital part of the signal path. It alone being digital brings clarity and focus to the task in a way that analog delay line chips can't really match.

But everything else all the absolutely vital filtering to carefully finish the sound is pure analog. Every aspect of the modulation that gives the Faux Tape Echo pedal a unique function and tone and makes it desirable for people who want their delay tone to sound as good as tape delay units but without all the maintenance supplies and hassle? Totally analog. Your all-important fundamental dry tone is 100% analog too.

Still they wouldn't be Wampler Pedals if they didn't listen to their users artists and dealers and take into account feature requests... In this case they'd have to plug their fingers in their ears if they were to ignore all the people shouting for TAP TEMPO! And let's face it Brian Wampler wouldn't be who he is if he weren't always thinking of a better way to accomplish something cool in this case a great sounding and more adjustable new modulation that will put the Faux Tape Echo's Faux Tape Reel into our most authentic territory yet.

This new version of the Faux Tape Echo takes everything great about the original and adds to it that much-requested tap tempo functionality that users have asking for as well as Brian's new idea in emulating the elusive and beautiful character that people look for in classic tape echo units. The time has come to unveil the Faux Tape Echo that everyone has been waiting for – and we've all worked hard to make sure you're going to love it!

If you are tired of wimpy sterile delay tones or just simply wish that your analog delay could get brighter the faux echo is your pedal! While the echoes are created digitally the base signal is all analog and is extremely transparent. The echoes are not sterile and brittle like a digital delay though - they are big full and FAT.
