Gecko Pedals Geckoplex EP-5 V2


Gecko Pedals Geckoplex EP-5 V2

A modern feature-rich delay pedal inspired by 1960-1970’s era tape delays.

Meet the Geckoplex, the no-expense-spared result of over 10 years in pursuit of our own dream delay pedal. Inspired by 1960-1970’s era tape delays, but with some more modern digital features added in, the Geckoplex EP-5 is about as close as possible to having an actual tape delay unit on your pedalboard. It is full-featured and versatile, handling anything from a simple slap-back, to creating dreamy, spacious science-fiction soundscapes that combine reverb with nearly endless, twisted, wavering echoes. Pair it with an expression pedal for hands-free control of any set of controls over any range in real-time.

Mount it on your pedalboard, or put it on top of your amp stack for some hands-on action instead. However you decide to use it, it has your delay needs covered, and is solidly hand-built to last a very long time.

Each Geckoplex is hand-crafted in small batches with genuine, quality components and individually hand-numbered. Absolutely everything, including circuit board assembly, machining, powder coating, screen printing, assembly, and testing, is done in-house right here in Eugene, Oregon, U.S.A.
