Malekko Ekko 616
The Malekko Ekko 616 is the newest offering from Texas based Malekko Heavy Industry. Having already mastered high quality analog delay pedals, Malekko is now offering guitarists a wallet friendly analog delay pedal that will astound even the keenest of cork sniffing tone snobs with its high quality delay and modulation.
Featuring 600ms of delay time the Ekko 616 also includes Malekko's switchable buffer/true bypass for integration into any rig. The buffered mode provides the full range of detail and clarity and has brighter repeats that decay slower than most analog delays. The true bypass mode yields darker, more Floydian repeats. The new design from Malekko has virtually eliminated clock noise. Dare we say the quietest ever manufactured. Add to that, adjustable modulation from mild chorusing to wild pitch shifts, and you have one serious contender in today's ever-growing guitar pedal industry. Malekko has brought the analog delay pedal to another level with the Ekko 616.

650ms Analog Delay Pedal
For years, Malekko has been synonymous with the best quality BBD delays available. Today the evolution continues with the EKKO 616, a full featured yet compact delay with external modulation controls, an optional buffer, internal level pot and 650ms of pure analog bliss!
The E616's specially voiced repeats allow a larger bandwidth to pass than most traditional analog delays. Turn the mix pot all the way up and the repeats will be slightly louder than the dry signal if needed, allowing greater flexibility. The regeneration pot will take you from a simple slapback to a nice gentle decay of a few repeats then all the way to taking off into outer space with just a turn of the pot! Engage the modulation button and the Malekko EKKO 616 takes on a whole new personality, from subtle chorusing or beautiful vibrato to way WAY beyond. The EKKO 616 also allows you to select your type of bypass between buffered or true bypass. Tired of annoying volume drops? An internal trimpot (labeled "gain") will allow you to set the EKKO 616's level to your specific setup.
At Malekko, we didn't set out to make a carbon copy of anything. Instead of looking backwards, we designed a new and visionary analog delay from the ground up.
Operates on a 9V battery or optional 9VDC neg tip regulated power supply.

|2015-08-23||Arielabe||10/10||Like a better MXR Carbon Copy, heavy and dark analog delay||Mod controls are teeny tiny pots.|
|2013-09-08||0xdfx||V1||8.5/10||Lovely warm repeats, modulation available, true bypass and buffer options||V1 modulation settings are verifiably, narrow range of useful modulation settings without getting extreme, repeats too dark for some tastes|
