When the Echoplex EP-3 came out, guitar players were hooked by the way
its preamp sweetened up their sound. Soon, the EP-3 made its way onto
the records of top guitar players—from Jimmy Page to Eddie Van Halen and
Eric Johnson—as much for its tone conditioning ability as its tape echo
effect. Now, you can put the EP-3’s legendary secret sauce right on
Dunlop’s EP101 Echoplex Preamp recreates the magic of the EP-3’s front
end, featuring a Field-effect Transistor (FET) just like the original
and following the exact same signal path. The Gain control allows you to
boost your signal by up to +11dB, with light asymmetrical clipping at
higher settings for a bit of nice organic grit.
The Echoplex Preamp runs on standard 9-volt power and contains power
management circuitry to guarantee constant headroom performance
throughout the normal life of a 9-volt battery. With a heavy-duty Phase
90-sized housing, a replica EP-3 knob, true bypass switching and a
status LED, the Echoplex Preamp is built to take a beating on the road
so you can leave your fragile vintage piece at home.
