Dunlop EP101 Echoplex Preamp
Dunlop’s Echoplex guitar preamp is based around the legendary EP-3 preamp, which played a crucial part in the rigs of iconic axemen such as Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, and Eric Johnson. Like its predecessor, this preamp doesn’t just boost your signal, but also adds the bonus of an echo tape effect as well as a warm-sounding overdrive to your tone. The gain control on the Echoplex allows you to boost signal by up to 11+dB. Small enough to not take up a prohibitive amount of space in your rig, the pedal is also very easy to use, as it only features a single knob. The Echoplex is also true-bypass, meaning it won’t color your tone when it’s in your rig but not in use.
