Catalinbread Belle Epoch Pedals: 20% Off (opens in new tab)
Catalinbread’s USA-made Belle Epoch Tape Echo and Belle Epoch Deluxe Echo Unit CB-3 delay pedals are now available from Sweetwater with a huge 20% discount. Painstakingly reverse-engineered these truly wonderful-sounding stompboxes provide all the vintage magic of the original Maestro Echoplex EP-3 analog tape echo units. Prized for their luscious delay sounds and overdriven preamp tones these hardwearing pedals are built for life on the road.
The Catalinbread Belle Epoch Tape Echo (opens in new tab) features a discrete preamp, adding the kind of ‘70s rock magic that originally made the EP-3 so popular with guitarists like Brian May and Jimmy Page.
In terms of controls, Echo Delay sets the delay time (anywhere from 80ms to 800ms) while Echo Sustain regulates delay feedback. Adding further realism, the Mod knob recreates vintage tape-style wow and flutter, while Rec Lev sets the level of the initial repeat. A Mix knob allows for wet/dry balance control (100% either end.)
The Catalinbread Belle Epoch Deluxe Echo Unit CB-3 (opens in new tab) provides even more creative options including expression pedal compatibility in order to control delay time, delay playback volume, filter sweep, or rotary speed for the roto-swirl function. The footswitch on the left allows for instant psychedelic echo oscillations while the on/off footswitch on the right can be set for true-bypass or buffered for delay trails.
Catalinbread’s Belle Epoch delay pedals have proven to be extremely popular with guitarists in recent years – their digital emulation of the classic Maestro Echoplex EP-3 tape delay units providing ultra-realistic vintage-style echo.
However, unlike these decades-old analog tape machines the Catalinbread Belle Epoch and Belle Epoch Deluxe don’t require expensive ongoing maintenance to keep them in optimum condition. Engineered to withstand the rigors of touring these high-quality pedals are built to last.
