Yamaha E1010 Analog Delay Unit Used Fully Recapped and calibrated. This delay sounds amazing!
Classic analog delay by yamaha. This unit works great and sounds great. It shows typical wear for its age.
The Yamaha E1010 is a Classic Analog Delay introduced in 1978 used extensively in recording studios. It has a maximum delay time of 300ms, bass and treble control, as well as modulation options. The unit has a distinctively rich and warm analog sound.
Released in 1978 (Though our owners manual says March 1979.), this is the big brother to the E1005. With a max delay of 300ms, some easy switch buttons for general delay times (10ms, 75ms, 150ms, 225ms, 300ms), bass and treble tone control, and mod speed and depth, this is a rich warm delay and versatile chorus delay. Plus some killer flanging with those tight delays.
Feedback will go into sonic destruction mode, so dub and loop artists have snagged this one in a big way. Inputs on the front and back and a separate direct out make this a solid piece for stage or studio. It's been described as one of the cleanest analog delays and also one of the worst sounding.
There's noise for sure, but when you get the gains and input/output just right, it's fairly quiet. Noise or not, the sound is just sweet. Warm and flexible.
