Thinking of buying one to replace my dead dd-3...thoughts on the echo?
I like mine alot. It is a very functional and under rated pedal
have it. despite the fact that i don't need delay in my playing and so don't use it (trying to sell), it is an awesome
delay. cheap, has tap tempo extension, all modes are useful, good size
and shape. recomended for shure
I heard it's more fragile than the BOSS counterpart?
It seems pretty heavy duty to me. Solid metal enclosure, metal knobs, old style stomp switch. I have had one twice now. I traded away my first one that I bought new and missed it. When I saw one come up for $50 used I jumped at it.
Beware these Marshall pedals. They look robust but the switch and power jack are prone to failure. A friend and I ordered echoheads when mf.com was blowing them out in 2008 or 2009. Neither lasted a year.
Well no wonder they broke. They were probably really used pedals and they were liquidating it.
I've had a Marshall Vibratrem pedal since the late 90's and it's never missed a beat and still sounds as good as any trem pedal that costs a lot more. So, here's one voice saying that these pedals are as good as any available.
Had a Jackhammer for years and it never had an issue.
Built like freaking tank.
Yeah my EH-1 seems very robust, only had it about a month so can't speak to long term endurance, but nothing seems flimsy at all. I was tossing a coin between it and a DD-3, the Echohead just had better tone, IMHO. Try them both and see which you prefer, they are very different delays,,,,,,
