BRAND: Watkins


FUNCTION: Tape Delay Echo

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: This listing is for an Exceedingly Rare Watkins Copicat MKII Analog Tape Delay Echo Owned by Matt Hyde.

ACCESSORIES INCLUDED: This item includes a box with 9 extra tape loops and does not include any additional accessories.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Good- Overall, this unit is in fine shape given its age and pedigree. In its original case, this Watkins Copicat dates to the early 1960's and has some torn tolex, quite a bit of missing paint and scuffs on the inside. The top latch is missing completely, and only one of the side latches is functional. The handle works, but metal parts are cracked, and the rear vent grille is missing. Overall, its mechanically sound and looks to have the original pedal, knobs, and output plug! 

WORKING CONDITION: Very Good- What a sound! The concept is simple, record on the first head, and playback from the second, third and fourth. Each playback head has its own button to enable, as well as a single feedback knob and overall volume. Both inputs have input drive volume control and are working great. The tape motor is working awesome and sounds solid. The only issue is a bit of noise, but that's part of the charm and vibe! Armed with spare tapes, this unit should last another 60 years!

*Please note that this is a 240V unit, and a step-up transformer will be needed to use it in parts of the world running at 120V.
