VINTAGE TEL-RAY AD-N-ECHO OIL-CAN DELAY UNIT
This is a rare and sought after Tel-Ray Ad-n-Echo Oilcan delay!
This has been recently cloned in pedal form by Catalinbread with their Andneko. We loved that pedal and were THRILLED when a fully functioning REAL unit came in the store! Here's a description we found online, as info on these is limited.
"TelRay is a long-forgotten California electronics company that made "tape-less echo effects" in the 60's, before analog delay pedals existed. The mastermind behind this space age approach to delay effects was Tel Ray's head honcho, Ray Lubow. Instead of tape, "Adineko Memory System" used what looks like a tuna can filled with electrolytic oil. A tiny motor pulls a miniature rubber belt, spinning a flywheel armed with a pickup inside the can, acting like a recording head, sloshing it around in the oil to produce an echo. While some Adineko effects were designed to create delay and reverb, others produced a strange pitch-shifting effect, an uneven and somewhat schizophrenic warbling sound"
This unit lived in a pro studio its whole life and functions 100% and is super clean. It looks almost brand new.
