The Foxgear T7E Baby is designed as a direct emulation of a Binson Echorec, the Italian echo unit that used a rotating magnetic drum rather than tape. Among others, the Binson range included the Echorec Baby and the T7E Echorec 2, which was used by David Gilmour from 1968 up to 1977. 

Foxgear pedals are made in China, but the company has its roots in Italy where it is part of a family that includes the boutique Gurus and Baroni-Lab brands. The T7E Baby is, in fact, based on the Gurus Echosex 2 T7E, losing that pedal’s integral valve but with pretty much the same functionality at a much lower price.
