Jimmy Page’s Vox “Long Tom” Echo Deluxe

Jimmy Page started using a Vox Deluxe Echo tape delay around April 1969 and continued using it until the end of the 1970 US Tour when he replaced it with a Maestro Echoplex EP-2.

Jimmy used the “Long Tom” version of the Echo Deluxe, popularized by Hank Marvin of the “Shadows”. The unit worked basically by recording the original signal on a tape and playing it back with a slight delay, with the option of increasing or reducing the volume and the delay time with the knobs seen at the front of the unit.
