  • A simple and efficient pedal

    Electro-Harmonix #1 EchoPublished on 02/22/13 at 02:03

    This is a Digital Delay, an input, an output (not stereo) and a 9V power supply plug with the classic - central. No battery compartment
    It consumes about 185mA so plan accordingly any power!
    The settings are classics, a Delay Time for tempo, feedback to the number of repetitions and a Blend knob for level, a feature of this pedal, I'll come back later.

    UTILIZATION

    In fact, the echo Blend mixes the original signal with a functioning "cross-fade", the higher the level the more you delay attenuates the dry signal. Positioned at 9-10am, it provides a well round, ideal for solos a little spacey to......

    UTILIZATION

    Once we understand how the Blend, easily found its proper setting benchmarks and LE
    In fact, the echo Blend mixes the original signal with a functioning "cross-fade", the higher the level the more you delay attenuates the dry signal. Positioned at 9-10am, it provides a well round, ideal for solos a little spacey to Pink Floyd.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Unlike some previous reviews I do not think you lose the signal.
    We need to find the right setting and the sound is really on top in both its clear that its full.
    I used several guitars, SG, LP, Telecaster Marshall amps on different VM and Class 5 in combination with other pedals or alone, and essentially live repet, and I have always been very satisfied
    on the other hand, for the right sound, you need a GOOD PSU. I have experience with power supplies of lower quality type HB 30 Euros PowerPlant, the sound quality is affected directly. Today I have a VOODOO LAB is the top

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 year, I love this pedal but I'll change to a model with Tap Tempo, it is important for me to have this feature live
    I think that in this price range, you can hardly find better, I would do this choice without hesitation

    Delay numrique emulate the sound of analog, no memorization possible.
    Trs simple configuration.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is very simple: Three knobs, a blend (which RULES mix of fact and direct), a delay time (duration of reptition between 0 and 2s) and feedback.
    The PDAL is very simple to use, no tap tempo, etc. ... but gnral chosen this kind of effect for this.
    The maunel like in a few words but we do not need more.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Well the main point: there is a delay numrique CHARACTERISTICS emulate the analog, the quality of the sound equipment is satisfactory trs, trs rendering is hot and respects the original signal. It does not have this cold and clinical cot other numriques delay.
    The possibilities are enormous and can CRER tablecloths and all kinds of strange effects by playing with feedback even if it oscillates prefe not as good as the memory man.
    Two points should be noted: the short delay and very short trs non-existent below 10 pm on the knob of time we do not notice anything except a little reverb, it does me no drang me because I mainly used for the long delay in combination with H2o for shorter delay.
    Another thing: the Blend knob is pretty Drout at first, it "s not an act but a mix level between the direct sound and the sound and effect, as and that 'you go up the level of the effect, we lower the volume of the direct sound is not perfect for the effects spciaux etc. .. but in a musical group is sometimes Gnant.
    So it takes some getting used to and this requires spending some time on rglages but after a while found the trick.
    I use the effects loop of 059 brunetti with other pedals (h2o, boss rc 20, volume pedals)) and pedals Autes Live (Wammy, POG, TS9, small stone), the sound quality is good trs.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 weeks.
    I like the overall color of his, I like less the blend knob, which eats a little lez direct sound.
    I tried a lot of other delay, there are the best but more expensive.
    Given the PU and my use I would do this choice.

    Digital echo which wants hot (but not really analog)
    connectors in / out, power supply 9V type boss.

    UTILIZATION

    3 knobs certainly, but not so simple ... a multitude of possibilities are offered the user. aa air Drout at beginners, but after qq minutes, freelance fast action knobs.
    there is no manual ... but hey, there are only 3 knobs (dj I say?: o))

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound quality is great but if you want a delay hot / vintage, go your way. it's digital. however, the sound palette is poustouflante, and as usual, we EHX gte with non-standard option.
    time below 10 is a lightweight cho, del begins to feel the delay.

    time below 10 is a lightweight cho, del begins to feel the delay.
    2 hours to blend del, it's weird. the attack on the cho is stronger than the note played.
    feedback can go up to infinity with virtually no loss of sound.
    set the blend at 3 o'clock, the time trs down and bottom feedback ... and you're making the guitar exprimentale fawn Syd Barrett

    OVERALL OPINION

    While the delay is good but not great and can be rglages Drout if not properly made.
    BUT, it is a part of pedals that the purest spirit of EHX: new sounds, exclusive range of sounds. It will delight aficionados of the brand as it dcevra purists delay. I presqu'envie to classify the margins of the delay pedals.

    I strongly recommend to try at least to be aware of the power of the BTE, but personally, this is not the MODEL I choose as the first delay, despite the relatively attractive prices (around 100)

    What are the effects, types of effects available?

    It is a delay, so voila, no need to say more

    Are they edited? Via a publisher Mac / PC?

    No

    Is this a rack or rack-mount model?

    No

    What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)

    I know I had this pedal 2 days

    What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)

    Jack in / out jack and transformer.

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration is simple?

    Much less than it seems, it was a reason for my choice at first, but the button Blend complicates things and we find ourselves obliged to compromise, so we can not seem to fine tune.

    The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

    Yes, 3 pots, it's just the function of the......

    The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

    Yes, 3 pots, it's just the function of the blend which is not great and even a detailed explanation would not have changed.

    Editing sounds and effects is easy?

    I've just answered that question once we have understood that the blend requires a compromise, it's simpler.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?

    Yes, I also chose this pedal for this, the answer is faithful to the signal sent and is not always the case for delay.

    Which instruments do you use?

    A tambourine ..... er not a guitar.

    Which instruments do you use?

    Ben is a delay that makes the ... delay, so no choice.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For how long have you been using it?

    I used 2 days

    Did you try many other models before getting this one?

    Yes, MXR carbon.

    What thing do you like most/least about it?

    Most: the signal fidelity
    Minimum: this blend button, which depending on the setting that you hear little note played and much reproduced or vice versa. The problem is that even adjusting it to 12 H (50%) there is always a lag. Then I had a major loss when noise j'enclenchais the delay. Very important when I plugged in direct, a little less in the effects loop but that was really annoying, especially since this loss was even more important with the distortion pedal.

    That to be a very good pedal, it just lacks a button level, to offset this loss of signal.

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?

    I say anyway, that the report is good, it is one of the least expensive delays.

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

    No, I visited the store after 2 days to buy another model.

    The Electro-Harmonix # 1 Echo is a digital delay pedal that is designed for use with electric guitar.  The pedal has a 1/4 inch input and output and requires 9 volt power.  It isn't a rack mountable piece of gear as it is a stomp box.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration of the Electro-Harmonix #1 Echo is extremely easy to follow and understand.  The pedal simply has three knobs that includes parameters for blend, delay time, and feedback.  That is pretty much all that there is to the pedal, so as you can see the make up is extremely basic.  Even those who don't know too much about delay pedals will probably be able to understand everything going on here without a problem and for this reason......

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound quality of the Electro-Harmonix #1 Echo is quite good as far as digital delays go.  I always try to use an analog delay when I can, which Electro-Harmonix has plenty of in their line, but this is a cheap substitute for one if you can't afford the Memory Man or another analog delay.  I have used the #1 Echo with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb for recording for the most part and have definitely be pleased with the tones that I am able to get.  While I don't believe that the sound of a digital delay will ever beat an analog one, the #1 Echo has a sweet sound nonetheless.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using the Electro-Harmonix # 1 Echo in the studio for about a year and it has definitely served me well.  It is great for getting a clean delay tone but definitely lacks the warmth that a true analog delay will bring to the table.  On the other hand, the price of this pedal is much cheaper than an analog delay would be, making it viable for players on all levels and budgets.  If you are looking for clean delay pedal that is easy to use and won't cost too much, I would definitely recommend the Electro-Harmonix # 1 Echo.
