#1 Echo Digital Delay

Electro-Harmonix has a reputation for quality delays and the #1 Echo is a prime example. The tone is ultra high quality up to two seconds of maximum warm analog-sounding delay. The feedback control sets number of repeats and how fast they fade. The blend control lets you adjust the balance of echo volume with straight through signal, putting your sound exactly in the pocket you want.

This is a text copy of a letter written to Mike Matthews by an enthusiastic fan from Keiv-Ukraine.

Hello, dear Mr. Matthews!
My name is Enno. I am 27 years old. I live in Kiev, the country - Ukraine.
I play guitar in electro-rock band. For 2 years I use only your effect pedals.

From the first time I realized that the sound of Electro-Harmonix - is my sound, with whom I and my music will grow and develop. This weekend I bought a HOG pedal. Random. I went into the store and could not resist this pedal. On this day, I just got paid. So, I took all the money that I had and bought a HOG! On the way from the store to home I became upset, because completely no money left for the next month. But! When I turned on the HOG at home, I totally forgot about the money! I felt such joy as a child! Thats why I writing you this naive letter, like to Santa Claus! grin Only emotions without etiquette!
Thank you for your work! Thank you for all the guitarists in the world music that I grew up!
Music - an integral part of my heart, and Electro-Harmonix - an integral part of music.
This means that you are also a part of my heart and running through my blood!
As soon as I could afford it, I immediately bought English Muff’n, then Echo #1, and now the HOG. I am sure they will be with me throughout my life. When I recovering from the financial impact by HOG, I will buy foot controller for it ... I think in winter grin

Now I tell everyone Kiev musicians about the magnificence of HOG pedal. It turned out that none of my friends Ukrainian guitarists do not use HOG (should be noted that I know a lot of them and I live in the capital). And generally in Ukraine they know little about Electro-Harmonix and looks on your pedals as a sort of exotic pieces. I can not understand why this happens ...
In Ukraine, there is only one normal store, where you can buy EHX units. The most that I can do - is to tell about Electro-Harmoniks as many people as I can. That’s what I’m doing. I hope so, I take little part in your great work!

So! I sincerely thank you for what you have! What you do not given up! What continues to make for all of us as old and new devises! I wish you good health! And keep rocking! The world needs you and your team!

Greetings from Ukraine!
Sincerely yours, Enno Koyalo.

P.S. I think that this letter is unlikely to reach Mike Matthews, but sent it anyway! I think that Mr. Matthews would be pleased to read it - is unlikely to come from the Ukraine a lot of letters. Thanks to the whole Electro-Harmonix team! You are cool!

Dear Enno,

All of us at Electro-Harmonix, New York city are so happy to hear from you and read your letter.

We work our asses off to try and bring out the most interesting sound effects…. So when we hear of a very satisfied customer and fan,  it is gratifying and motivates us more to keep on working.

Rock & Roll… And hope you get that hit real soon,

Mike Matthews
