The latest EHX reissue of a 1978 rarity with modern updates!
The Electro-Harmonix Slap-Back Echo is a late 70s rarity reissued with a classic tone and few modern updates. A single, short delay has been utilized to add depth and rhythmic effect to countless records, was popularized in the 1950s, and is still unmistakable. The EHX Slap-Back Echo’s simple design delivers the classic sounds from subtle doubling to intense bathtub reflections in a pedalboard-friendly package.

Housed in EHX’s Pico-sized chassis, the all-analog Slap-Back Echo features Gain and Blend knobs as well as a Time switch. The Gain knob controls the input signal before the echo circuit and also adjusts the overall volume at the output with a boost of up to +20dB. The Blend knob mixes the dry signal and the echo signal from 100% dry to 100% echo. The Time switch selects between three different delay times: 45ms, 65ms, and 100ms.
The EHX Slap-back Echo comes equipped with an EHX 9V power supply, is available now and features a U.S. street price of $81.00.

I just got mine today and I’m not loving the tone. It seems to suck the sparkle out of the high end of my nice clean tele. Even with the Gain and Blend knobs all the way down it still colors the tone a lot. Am I doing something wrong?
