Hermida EPH-3 Tape Echo SimulatorACHTUNG: Limitierte Auflage!
The EPH-3 is probably the best delay I have ever played period! The way it handles dirt boxes is nothing short of amazing, never does the unit get in the way or wash over your tone. Lush, fat, warm tones thanks to the FET preamp and recovery stage make this custom build from Alfonso Hermida a must have for every guitar player.
The LovePedal Hermida EPH-3 is a stunning tape echo simulator that brings across the full character of a real tape delay in a box that will fit on any pedalboard. Its old school design and simple controls remind us of some classic 80's pedals but trust me this sounds is much crisper and much clearer than any of those old circuits.
While some tape echos are filled with switches and controls that take hours to fine tune. The EPH-3 on the other hand is beautifully simple that just works as soon as you plug them in. Your top three controls are your standard delay options with Mix, Delay and Feedback which gets you the core sound. The extra fourth control is what really gives you that classic tape sound. Dubbed the flutter control this knob gives you all of the imperfections in the tape that would have appeared in the true analogue gear.
A common issue with tape echos is that they muddy up your sound that can effect your tone when you use it with a heavily driven tone. This pedal doesn't have any of these issues so you can easily place this in the effects loop of any high gain amp without any negative effect on your carefully crafted tone.
