prices depend on whether it is the original tube echoplex or the slightly
later solid-state version made by Maestro. Try to guess which one is worth
$250 is probably for the solid state version. You can tell those because
they are in a black case. The tube version was green. The tube one is
prized, probably going for $450 and up if you can even find one. If you
to sound like Hendrix or Eric Johnson, you want tubes. Either one will
probably give you that tape hiss/warmth that some people like so much. This
is all heresy, of course, cause I've never actually use either one.
You can get tapes form Jim Dunlop.
