Tape Echo EF-X2 by Echo Fix

Looks a interesting new member to the tape delay family.

Taken from site.

Three core functions – tape echo, reverb, and preamp.

Independent inputs (and level controls) for Instrument-level and Line-level applications, plus balanced input and output at rear

Three echo playback heads, and a Sound On Sound Head giving 11 Head combination Settings in total

Adjust the echo’s Time and Feedback with Control Voltages (CV 0-5 volts) and compatible Expression Pedals

Bass and Treble control of the echo signal

Motor ON/Switch for tape slow down effect – or to conserve tape when only using the EF-X2’s reverb or preamp

State of the art DSP Reverb with independent controls.

Mute the reverb or echo signal with a dual foot switch pedal

Comes with a worldwide-compatible, 100 – 240v power supply (no step-down or other transformers required)

Built tough to last, by someone who’s repaired and upgraded more tape echo units than you can possibly imagine!

3 Years Warranty with peace of mind that this is made by a company that has been operating for over 10 years specialising in tape echo repair and spare parts.
