The Ekko 616 Dark is proudly made by us in-house in Portland, Oregon using the highest quality components!
The Ekko 616 Dark: muted, brooding, syrupy nastiness resides under your clean sound in a glorious mass of rich delay and heavy overtones. Gloss black on flat black, the menacing look of the Ekko 616 Dark is the perfect reflection of its heart of darkness.
The sound is infused with the legacy of our long-discontinued hand built Echo 600 Dark.
The Ekko 616 Dark is a full featured yet compact delay with external modulation controls, an optional buffer, internal level pot and 650ms of pure analog bliss! Every detail of the E616 Dark was scrutinized, data sheets compared, parts swapped, and hours of listening followed before we were satisfied. These resulting hand picked components of the highest quality are used to achieve what we consider the nicest sounding, darkest analog delay pedal we’ve made!
The Ekko 616 Dark is based on the Ekko 616 MKII yet voiced to have delays with the high frequencies rolled off, like a low-pass filter set to about 400Hz. This allows sparkling guitars to reside over a dark background of morphing overtones
