Eddie Van Halen’s Univox EchoChamber EC-80A Tape Echo

Eddie was seen using this tape echo in the early days, together with an Echoplex EP-3 – which is a tape delay. Sometimes he would he two Univox, sometimes one, and they were usually mounted in a World War II–era practice bomb that was repurposed as a rack.
