Current inspiration…the RadioShack Reverb.

I’ve wasted a couple of hours this week just playing with this. Like a lot folks, this was my first ‘studio’ effects unit. I thought I was the man when I had this, my Roland TR-606, Casio SK-1, and two tape decks. It’s a really cheap analog delay. Plus, the delay time is very small. Normally that would prohibit it’s usefulness, but it’s has both line level and microphone inputs, so you can patch the unit into itself while still using an input.  That creates this wonderful lo-fi distorted, feedback drone thing that’s really expressive. I’m going to use this a lot this year. BTW- There’s a plug-in version of it, but the damn thing costs more that the hardware ever did. Not cool.
