since years i've got these two dynacord echocord super s75 tape delays, both only half functioning, but that was okay for me. i got them cheap and loved their shortcomings.
however, the better-functioning (this could be wired as send) died somehow. it fall back to the functionality level of the worse-functioning (insert only) + some pretty ugly humming-noise.
the insert-only way of wiring (use one of the 4 mic preamps on the front for input, do the level adjust etc... and then get the output on the back) always annoyed me. the more-functioning could be wired with one cable from the back. i'm done. i barely used them because i was to lazy to set them up.
now i'm thinking of selling those.
but not without replacement. it may not be a tape delay - a used tape-delay is out of my money-range these days. a good emulation would be just fine for me. but the sound-on-sound has to be fine, it has to do nice pitching when changing the delay time, and charming wobble. let's do some namedropping!
