From slap-back echoes to experimental sounds to great classic rock sounding echo, the Magnetic Echo does it all.

The Magnetic Echo pedal simulates tube tape echo sounds by using the PT-2399 and a little bit of modulation. Tape echos have long been regarded as a warm and very guitar friendly form of delay. The Mag-Echo achieves similar results by using a touch of Lo-Fi delay, a filtered echo response, and some modulation. Modulation, or "Wow and Flutter" in the tape world is a slight pitch shift or wavering that occurs as the tape is pulled across the heads. The modulation we use is similar to what we use in our Seafoam Chorus, a slight wavering of pitch on the trails of the repeats. With a simple set of controls for the delay - Time, Regen, and Level and with the "Wow and Flutter" controls - Depth and Rate you can create some very vintage or rather unique tones.

Delay Time - This Time control roughly sets the length between your repeats between 40ms and 600ms. This range is well suited for classic, vintage delay sounds that are great for slap-back or medium length delay times.

Regen - This control sets the number of repeats. You can set this for a single slap back echo or turn it up for a runaway, self-oscillating or self-regenerating echoes. (Now go back and twist the Time control for some crazy sounds!)

Delay Level - The Level control is your mix, how loud you want to hear the echoes.

Depth - Turn this control to achieve deeper and deeper chorusing and pitch shifting on your echoes. As you raise the control the Depth and Rate LED will start to glow giving you a visual indication as to the amount of modulation you are applying to the repeats.

Rate - This is your Flutter control. It's another way to control how poorly your tape echo is performing! Not that any tape deck was every in this bad of condition, but it sure sounds good to have a little pitch modulation on your echo! Using these controls gives you a nice way to create unique and very musical delays.

  • 40-600ms of delay with modulation
  • Wide range of tones, from vintage to experimental
  • Time, Regen, Level, Depth and Rate controls

Comments about Keeley Magnetic Echo Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

I'm admittedly late to the delay "game". I do not, nor have I ever, desired to sound like "The Edge" and I mistakenly thought that's about all that delays were good for. Was I wrong! I wanted to thicken up my tone, which I felt was great (tone-wise) but at times 'thin' with my Fender U.S. Strat. While searching for answers, I stumbled across "That Pedal Show" on YouTube (r) (highly recommended BTW) and although they didn't review the Keeley Mag Echo Delay, I did get a good sense of what a delay should (and shouldn't !) do. From there it was talking to folks and nights of reading / watching reviews. I've been a Keeley modded Bluesdriver fan for over a decade and know of Robert's relentless pursuit of tone. My budget was LOW and expectations high. I could go into painful detail but it came down to the MXR Carbon Copy; the new Ibanez Mini Delay and the Keeley Mag. The MXR to me seemed just a tad 'filtered' (lacking a better description); the Ibanez seems excellent BUT limited in function- should I ever decide to venture into fields unknown to me. It didn't hurt that there was an "open box" Mag Echo available here on MF either. I've been experimenting for 3 days with the Mag Echo and will use it this Sunday on the Worship Team I am on. (We ARE NOT the typical worship team- I'm blessed to have some real talent with years / secular experience behind us- not the typical cookie-cutter worship stuff. just MHO). I'll also use it with my originals band once we get down to things. I have, thus far, found it to be 'warm', very toneful, articulate and full of range / settings. Admittedly I will not initially be using it in "space ranger" mode but may eventually venture there. I have full confidence in anything that Robert produces and the pedal seems robust enough for even the most brutal of road warriors. For right now tone, girth and a little slap-back WITH modulation (VERY useful, that modulation, IMO) and I'm happy! Will try to remember to re- review in 6 months or so...

    Comments about Keeley Magnetic Echo Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I use one of these pedals through my FX Loop, and one in front of the amp. You can set this pedal as extreme as you like, or dial it back just to add a touch of color to your tone. You cant go wrong... The only thing that I would say is close to bad is the blue light is a little bright and makes it hard to see the controls, but it looks cool
