Echoplex, Echorec, Maestro and Other Vintage FX Units
Black Volt has had the privilege to repair some amazing and rare gear over the years and this category definitely boasts some highlights. We recently restored David Gilmore's Echorec unit that he used to record Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" Album. These larger vintage FX units are very specialized machines that are extremely sensitive and require the utmost care and skill to bring them back to life. There are not many options when it comes to servicing and maintaining your prized Echoplex or Echorec, sorest assured that you are in good hands when you bring your FX unit in for service at Black Volt Amplification.
