This is an extremely rare Atlantis 1 Echo Unit – one of only 300 ever made.
Shadows fans know the Atlantis 1 as the holy grail for emulating all of Hank Marvin’s classic echo sounds.
The Atlantis 1 is a handmade, rack mounting analog delay, emulating the sounds of the following fabled vintage tape echo units –
Vox Long Tom
Meazzi PA 304
Binson Baby Echo 2
The sound is amazing, very warm and organic repeats with a beautiful breakup.
The controls feature a preamp section with Volume, Hi-Norm-Lo Input toggle switch and Tone control.
Next is the Tape section with Speed, tone character Filter (to emulate early Shadows songs) and Wow & Flutter (tape echo ‘imperfection’ control).
The Echo section has a Repeat (delay length), Echo (effect volume), Bank 1 & 2 select toggle switch and a Select button to choose Echo model.
This is a 240V machine, so no need a step-down transformer in Aust.
This Atlantis 1 comes in its original box, complete with a power cord and 3 x booklets with presets for just about every Shadows song ever recorded.
