    So i got my Subdecay Echobox last night. Been playing with it and i must say it's awesome. Much clearer than my DD-3 and the modulation effect is badass. Gotta love that Blue LED to enhance the tone :D.


    Anywhos, the construction is pretty solid. One of the screws on the knobs was loose so i had to tighten that up and the inside looks like someone got a little too excited with the glue... But all is well! I like the little signature and date they signed on the backplate, mine was born on 3/5/08 :] The pedal isn't too big which is cool. Same size as EHX boxes. This is definitely a keeper!

    Here's some more soundclips...I'm using my crappy 1980's computer mic so excuse the quality.

    Just some normal delay action.

    Here's my favorite part about the Echobox.. Modulation.

    The modulation is interesting, I assume you are knob twiddling WHILE that clip is going on.

    Yeah, the screeching noise is the repeat knob and then the low warping noise is the time knob.

    I'll post more after lunch :]

    I'd like to hear it just doing modulation with the time turned right down

    Apparently if can get chorusy sounds like this but also huge modulating drones so I'd like to hear it with the time low and repeats high and the modulation high :D

    If you don't mind

    I really like the Echo Box proto that Tayste lent me. The repeats were spectacularly clear.
