NAMM 2023: Danish effects firm T-Rex has been catching everyone’s eye at this year’s show with the long-awaited release of its Binson Echorec Magnetic Disk Delay – a reproduction of the original Echorec circuit, complete with spinning drum.

The original Echorec worked on a magnetic disk, which uses a thin wire, rather than a tape to imprint the delay signal. It is responsible for some of rock music’s most iconic delay sounds and was used heavily in Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin recordings. Listen to David Gilmour’s guitar on Time or John Bonham’s ricocheting drum sound on ’Zeppelin’s When The Levee Breaks to hear it in action.
