The team's opinion: You will learn to love this Malekko Ekko 616 Delay! At the same time Malekko offers very convincing modulation effects. This is of course the case for this unpronounceable but endearing effect pedal. Like most delays, the Malekko Ekko 616 offers the traditional Time, Mix and Regen knobs to best define your echoes.
However, the mini knobs dedicated to modulation allow you to go from a warm and organic slapback to a "deteriorated" Delay like old analog tape! By gauging these knobs gently, it is possible to obtain a very significant chorus! Speaking of warmth, this little boutique Delay lets you tackle the Pop/Rock/Reggae register of the 70s and 80s. If you're a fan of the sound of Andy Summer (Police) or The Edge, this effect pedal is for you !
Attention, this pedal is part of the vintage tradition! It will therefore be more comfortable on Clean / Crunch than on large saturations. If you are looking for a modern delay, I invite you to turn to the Mr Black Dark Echo. The Malekko Ekko 616 Delay, on the other hand, excels both on the front of your amp and in the effects loop.
