Eddie Van Halen’s Echoplex EP-3

Eddie used the Echoplex EP-3 tape delay during the early years. He would usually have two of them when playing live and had separate pedals on his makeshift pedalboard that controlled the Echoplexes.

Eddie’s dual Echoplex setup.

It’s a piece of plywood with two controls for my Echoplex on it,, an MXR Phase 90 that I’ve had for years, and an MXR flanger.
