Introduction
Setting Up
The Echohead pedal is a stereo delay pedal offering a
maximum delay time of 2000ms. From crystal clear echoes to
hypnotic reverse delays via the vintage whir of an old tape
machine the Echohead recreates six different delay modes for
you to explore giving you full control over the delay time,
feedback and level of every mode.
The Echohead's dual outputs offer the choice of using a
passive bypass for the main signal path to ensure complete
tonal integrity or allowing the pedal to spill-over allowing your
echoes to naturally die away. Combined the outputs create a
stereo ping-pong effect creating a wide dynamic field.
Always use good quality shielded leads.
Always use 9V regulated DC supply with centre negative rated
at 80mA or above.
Below is a complete run down of the Echohead's features for
your information. We have also enclosed a number of
suggested settings to help guide you. It should be
remembered that these are only suggested settings and you
should really experiment as much as possible.
Although it may seem obvious the first action in achieving a
good effected sound (be it duration / compression etc.) is to
find the perfect bypassed sound. This will then allow the
correct level to be set with the effect unit to allow a cut or
boost in volume and a realistic tone.
On clean channels it is advisable to set the gain (or volume)
to a setting of no less than one quarter maximum so as not to
get unrealistic results due to any volume dependent tonal
shaping on the amplifier preamp.
Features
1. 'In' Jack Socket
This is the input jack for connection to your guitar or to the
output of another effects pedal when linking pedals together.
A momentary footswitch (such as the Marshall Tap Tempo
pedal - PEDL-10040) can be connected to this socket to
control the delay time. By tapping the pedal at your desired
tempo the Echohead will automatically adjust your delay
time to match.

2. 'Tap Tempo' Socket
3. 'Out 1 / Left' Jack Socket - Passive Bypass
Out 1 is connected to a passive bypass circuit. The passive
bypass ensures complete tonal integrity by disconnecting the
output of the effects circuit when not in operation. When a
jack is connected to Out 1 the pedal operates in mono mode.
4. 'Out 2 /Right' Jack Socket - Spill-Over
Out 2 is connected to a spill-over circuit. When the pedal is
switched off the echoes it has produced are allowed to 'spill'
and naturally decay over your playing while the input feeding
the effects circuit is switched off. When a jack is connected to
Out 2 the pedal operates in mono mode.
When jacks are connected to Out 1 & Out 2 the pedal operates
in Stereo mode, producing a ping-pong style delay between
the two outputs. In stereo mode the delay time of Out 2 is half
the length of Out 1. No spill-over is present when the pedal
operates in stereo mode.
5. Mode
The Echohead offers six different delay modes. Selected by
switching the mode knob in to one of the six positions.
Hi-Fi
A solid delay line throwing out crystal clear repeats
of the input.
Analogue Filters shape the echoes, adding a subtle tone and
recreating the sound of the guitar cascading
through old analogue delay circuits.
Mod Filter Sweeping across your sound, synced to your delay
time, a modulating filter adds movement and depth
to the echoes.
6. Delay Time
Controls the delay time of the echoes from 20ms (fully anticlockwise) to 2000ms (fully clockwise).
7. Feedback
Controls the amount of output signal that is fed-back and
mixed with the input increasing the time taken for the echoes
to decay. Fully anti-clockwise no signal is fed back and only
one echo is repeated, fully clockwise and the entire signal is
fed back causing the echoes to sound indefinitely.
8. Level
Controls the level of the overall effect. Fully anti-clockwise
gives the least effect and driest (uneffected) guitar signal,
while fully clockwise gives the most effected guitar sound.
9. Foot Switch
For switching the Echohead on and off.
10. LED
Indicates when the Echohead is in operation.
11. DC Input
For input of a 9V DC centre negative regulated adaptor should
you not wish to use batteries.
Tape Echo The narrow bandwidth and unstable whir of a tape
delay inspired these harsh degenerating echoes.
The random wow and flutter of an old motor adds
a warm organic chorus to the dark textured delays.
Multi Tap Multiple echoes pulse out of the pedal providing a
dense rhythmic sound.
Sucking the sound out backwards, the reverse
mode trails out a series of hypnotic repeats
creating psychedelic textures.
