Why settle for a lackluster echo and get something with a more personality. Tape Core, a contemporary stomp box that offers classic Tape Echo tone. Just like the original Tape Echo, the NUX Tape Core Deluxe features 3 reproduction heads yielding 7 different combinations of delay sounds. All of the natural sound, decay, modulation was created with our cutting-edge NUX TS/AC Technology!
Here's how the original Tape-Echo Machine worked: The Recording Head (which is not needed in our digital version) is on the far left. The ones to the right are what we use to digitally recreate the sound using TS/AC Technology. The Digital Recreation As in the original version, 3 Repro-Tape Heads allows for 7 different combinations. The distance between the Repro-Tape Heads determines the delay sound. Infinite Feedback Feature The maximum parameters of the REPEAT knob can be used to recreate the classic Infinite Feedback Oscillation effect that was, until now, only available on the physical machine. This trippy sci-fi effect, made popular by artists like Pink Floyd and The Steve Miller Band, allows for super-cool song intros, interludes, and endings.
True Bypass / Buffered Tail Bypass / T-Lock Tape Core Deluxe comes with a 3-way toggle-switch allowing you to change between 2 Bypass modes and NUX’s unique Tone Lock (T-Lock) function. T-LOCK MODE: A physical dead-man switch designed to protect your parameter tweaks during your performance. NORMAL MODE: True Bypass which bypasses the effects circuit.
