Fresh to you from the cedar forest forges of the Oregon coastline comes the Belle Epoch Deluxe from Catalinbread Mechanisms of Music. This is the Deluxe version of Catalinbread's long time staple the Belle Epoch Tape Delay, based on the beloved Echoplex EP-3 Tape Delay Machines of the 60's and 70's.
The Echoplex EP-3 Tape Delay machine was used on countless stages and recordings over the last several decades. Everyone from Jimmy Page to Bob Marley came to rely on the unique tape delay tones produced by the fabled machines. With the Belle Epoch Deluxe you can achieve the sames tones produced by the EP-3 without the giant reel-to-reel tape machine and all of the inconsistencies that plagued the original machines.
