Frequently Asked Questions

What are the shipping rates?

We offer free shipping on most items to metro areas in ACT, NSW, VIC, and QLD. If you are in a regional area we do offer great shipping rates, though it is often too expensive for us to offer free shipping. You can calculate shipping costs in the checkout and on item pages with your postcode.
Orders under $50 incur a minimum order fee to cover shipping.

Standard vs Express Shipping

Our shipping platform will automatically determine and display the Express or Standard shipping options that are available to you. If Express is not displaying, you're either located too far away from our store in Canberra, or the Standard shipping option will get it to you just as fast for the same price. Express shipping is 1-5 days, Standard 2-10 days depending on how far you are away from our store in Canberra.

What payment methods do you offer?

We offer secure checkout options like Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Zip Pay and Bank Deposit.
American Express payments are also accepted, although most AmEx transactions will require manual authorization after payment (Someone from the team will contact you to confirm the transaction after checkout)

GAUSS TAPE ECHO

Few delay effects are more revered, or iconic, than the tape echo machines of yesteryear. Their warm, fat tones have become the stuff of legends, but they can be hard to find, are pretty temperamental and typically expensive – that is until now. GAUSS TAPE ECHO is a vintage style echo pedal that realistically emulates the sound of those legendary tape echo machines, plays well with others, and is ultra-affordable!

Echoes of Yesteryear

GAUSS TAPE ECHO features a highly responsive and easy to use 3-knob interface with control over delay Time, Sustain and Volume. Our custom-designed, cutting-edge tape algorithm lets you create powerful subsonic pitch dives and self-oscillating spirals of psychedelia by simply manipulating the knobs in real time. An onboard Mod-switch lets you go clean, or add subtly natural and warm modulation to your echoes.

Vintage Tone, Modern Tech

Just as any good delay pedal, GAUSS TAPE ECHO gives your tone a sense of space and substance, by stretching it out a little bit, or a lot! It also fattens up the sound by adding a distinct sense of “more”. But it also gives you the sought-after timbre of the original tape echo machines complete with wow and flutter effects, and authentic bass drop-off on the repeats. GAUSS TAPE ECHO easily recreates any style echo, from the warm and organic tape delay of your favorite rock classics, to old-school ‘50s rockabilly slap-back.

Made to Last

Unlike the original tape machines, GAUSS TAPE ECHO is small and easy to transport. Its top mounted jacks make right at home on any pedal board, while the sturdy metal frame will stand up to obscene amounts of stage and road abuse. Also unlike the original designs, GAUSS TAPE ECHO features true bypass circuitry to keep your signal clear and bright – no matter what you throw at it!
