Earthquaker Devices Limited Edition Brain Dead Ghost Echo Vintage-Voiced Reverb

Sold out

Earthquaker Devices has teamed up with Brain Dead—a creative collective of artists and designers from around the world, with a graphic-led approach that takes cues from post-punk, underground comics, and skateboarding—to bring its designs to the Ghost Echo vintage voiced reverb!

The Ghost Echo is a spooky take on the haunted* amp-top spring reverberation units of yesteryear. This analog/digital spring reverb emulation machine boasts a terrifying 30ms – 150ms of pre-delay, controllable via the Attack knob, for everything from a quick rockabilly slapback to viscous pools of ectoplasmic reverberations. When playing staccato, you’ll hear the tortured trails of the reverb, resulting in more of a slapback or echo sound. Legato playing will reveal a massive ambient “depth” that fattens up the sound.

Attack: Adjusts the length of the pre-delay, from 30ms at minimum to about 150ms at maximum. When the Dwell is set to self-oscillate, this will change the pitch of the oscillations.
Dwell: Adjusts the length of the decay. This will start to self oscillate around 3 O’clock, the pitch of the oscillations can be changed by turning the Attack control.
Depth: Mixes in the wet signal with the dry, unity is around noon and everything after is boosted.
