The first and only complete catalog (as of June 2012) dedicated to Binson Echorec delay units, used by, among others,the Pink Floyd on every album since 1967 “The Piper at the Gates of Down” up to 1977 “Animals”, is now online at AudioExMachina’s blog.

Years of hystorical research have been condensed in a single document (more data will be added periodically) trying to help readers to identify and compare features of every model ever built.

A comprehensive table collects info about number of magnetic heads, tone controls,  tube or transistor architecture, feedback path, and more. Visit the AudioExMachina’s Echorec Bible from the main menu at the top of this page or by clicking here.
