Tape-like goodness with a unique solid-state audio stage.
Designed by Andy Fuchs of Fuchs Audio Technology, the Plush REP-3 delay provides up to one second of pure tape-sounding delay without the hassle of mechanical tape transports and wearing out expensive tape cartridges. Andy’s objective was very simple: create a delay effect pedal that delivered the warmth and musicality of tape, without the hassles and costs of replacing tapes, belts, motors, and maintenance. Sure, everyone loves the sound of tape, so who needs all the hassles?
The Plush REP-3 solid state delay pedal features up to one second of pure warm musical delay. Using a unique solid state audio circuit topology which keeps the analog signal pure, the Plush REP-3 still retains the warm musical tones of an real tape delay. By using a unique power supply topology, the incoming +9V is converted to –9V for a total of 18 volts of maximum dynamic range, lowest noise, and musicality. The REP-3 delay pedal also features the same proprietary great-sounding digital technology used in many of Plush's other delay and reverb products. The enclosure is cast aluminum, and precision-machined. It features ultra-bright LEDs for highest visibility on stage or even outdoors. The control panel features LEDs for Echo, Mute, and Tempo indication. Wow and Flutter controls allow you to add pitch variation to the delayed signal allowing adjustment of both the frequency and depth of the modulation. At short delays, it provides a lush chorus-like effect, and at longer delays it sounds like a well-worn vintage Echoplex tape delay. The Plush REP-3 delay pedal operates just as simply as a tape delay: No fancy programming, or software silliness. It's designed by musicians for musicians.
The control panel of the Plush REP-3 delay pedal is clear, concise, and user-friendly. Controls are delay time, mix, wow, flutter, repeats, and fidelity. The fidelity control allows you to tailor the repeats from digitally clear to tape smoothness. The effect pedal's internal switch allows you to set the output to wet (delay only) for use through a parallel effects loop, or for stereo ping-pong operation. While the REP-3 delay may be used on a pedal board in-front of an amplifier for best performance, Fuchs Audio Technology suggests you use it in an effects loop. The Plush REP-3 effect pedal is simple to operate its unique retro styling is equally at-home in a studio, as it is on a stage. A vintage-style VU meter combined with a peak LED shows operating level.
All Plush effect pedals feature: Cast aluminum housings, industrial powdercoat finish, heat-cured silkscreen labeling, true-bypass, Cliff switch, Neutrik connectors, metal shaft controls, premium boutique-quality passive components selected for tone, mil spec fiberglass two-sided circuit board construction for consistent long-term performance, and a 5-year warranty. Plush FX pedals are made in the USA by Fuchs Audio Technology, a respected manufacturer of boutique guitar and bass amps.
