Rory Gallagher’s Watkins Copicat Tape Delay

Mentioned briefly in a 1982 interview by Rory, as his main go-to delay for an old-school rock sound.

I always have a small delay on one of my amps, like a Memory Man or a DOD, but if you want anything like that authentic Rock ‘n’ Roll sound, then you have to have tape echo. The Copicat is great for that, but you can also set it with a very shallow delay and it can compensate for dead halls.
