The Echo Fix EF-P2 is the latest release in the rather restricted niche of real spring reverb pedals, i.e. stompboxes utilizing the spring + tank technology found in the reverbs embedded in vintage amps like the Fender Deluxe.
The Australian company was already well-known for its authentic (and not exactly affordable) recreation of classic vintage evergreen devices such as the Tape Echo, which also features a spring reverb that at least in part inspired the EF-P2.
The case features four knobs for Spring Drive, Bass, Treble and Reverb Volume, and two displays: an illuminated window showing the springs at work and a VU Meter displaying the amount of volume sent to the springs via the Drive control.
Compatible with both instrument and line-in, the EF-p2 can be use either on your board or as a studio effect, something that’s facilitated by the high headroom and the Kill Dry footswitch that entirely removes the dry signal.
