The new offering from Catalinbread is quite a stunning achievement . Not only have they created a pedal that is pretty much smack on the old Echoplex EP-3 sound but they have made it accessible to so many more players now that its in stompbox form and a lot more affordable than a Ridgy Didge Echoplex! The Echoplex was used by such people as Jimmy Page, Eric Johnson and Eddie Van Halen to name a few.

Catalinbread have managed to create a pedal that is exactly like running through an EP-3 Echoplex, The Belle Epoch has the same tone shaping effect and slight signal boost as the original EP-3. Catalinbread designed it to create the same degradation of repeats as the EP-3 and even the sound of the tape head traveling across the tape can be heard! The experience of a real EP-3 Echoplex is what happens when you click the switch. I'm not sure how they did it but they did!
