The delays sound like an old Maestro Tape Echoplex. I lived and died by my Echoplex and also my Roland Chorus Echo for tape delays. The problems that developed with the tape delays were due to capstans hardening or wearing physically. This delay does that with age setting without the hassle the tape delays where physical vibration disrupts live performance.
