BINSON ECHOREC PE 603-T6: 'SOUNDGAS SPECIAL'


We're tape and disc echo specialists and always have a good selection of vintage echo machines. 
Check out our other listings for more serviced Binsons, valve and solid state Copicats, Roland Space/Chorus Echoes.

I've personally collected Binsons for many years and have sold many exceptional examples to very satisfied customers (see feedback examples below). 

If some of the wording below seems familiar, it's because other sellers have taken to copying my descriptions verbatim for their own listings. This description is relevant to this unique machine only: the PE-603 T6 'Soundgas Special'. 


We've sold dozens of Echorecs in the past ten years; we understand how they should sound and function. Along the way we've learned that many Binsons sold on Ebay as working well (even ones that have been serviced and rewired) are not always up to scratch. 

We guarantee that this machine will not disappoint: see the YouTube demo below (coming soon) to hear for yourself how good this machine sounds.

Offered for sale here is this unique Binson PE 603-T6 disc echo in excellent cosmetic condition (see detailed photos below) and superb working order.

The PE 603 series were the most advanced machines Binson ever produced - this model is effectively a six head Echorec 2 in a very robust and heavy metal case.

The stock six head 603 was already a formidable machine, but this one has been modified to Soundgas specification to include:

Variable Speed Control;

Extra switchable record head;

Guitar level input.


We had a brand new complete and unused platter, disc and head set in stock which have been fitted to this machine so it's as close to new condition operationally as possible and should give many years of service.

This unique modified machine is an excellent example for the sonic adventurer, maybe less-so for a Binson purist. 


The extra record head allows longer delay times and, in conjunction with the original rec head, many new multi-head patterns. 


The rear three-position head selector switch controls which record head(s) are in use: 

1. With the original rec head switched in it's a stock 603; 

2. With both heads switched in, you open up a whole new palette of multi-head repeats.

3. With just the second rec head, it's a 603 but with longer delay times. 


As a result of the modifications you have 108 delay patterns to chose from as opposed to a stock machine's 36. 


The vari-speed control allows precise tempo-matching, though you will notice increased levels of noise at higher speeds, and less clarity at lower speeds (the treble control can be adjusted to compensate). 


The standard bulbs were blown and have been replaced with green leds for a very funky appearance in the darkened studio or stage.


The classic bloom-like Swell setting, combined with the additional head patterns makes this a fantastic and unique mix effect.


It sounds wonderful and inspires creativity when you play through it - whoever buys this will be getting a great machine in top operational condition which should give many years good service. 


The motor starts well and spins happily and without issue. It will go into self-oscillation very swiftly on certain settings if required (this can be adjusted via the internal trimpot for more subtle or extreme effects, but it's been set-up for optimum performance) and it's capable of all sorts of cosmic noises - Binsons do tend to encourage experimental noise-mongering. The repeats are not hifi - this is after all 50 year-old technology - if you want perfect repeats, buy a digital delay. 


The voltage selector had been removed when we bought it, so it's a 240v model and would require a step-up transformer for use in the USA/Canada.


These machines need regular use and maintenance to remain in good working order.

There are currently no operational issues with this unit at all, but please be aware that these units require looking after and that regular maintenance is the key to keeping this in good working order. They are very delicate: minute adjustments are made to the heads' positions for optimum performance, so it is possible that this machine will need to be calibrated again after shipping (most withstand shipping with careful packing, but the buyer should be prepared to have this done if required).

(Please note: it is always possible with vintage equipment that some crackly pots/sliders may develop over time when equipment has not been used - even during shipping - this can usually be easily rectified either by use or judicious application of suitable switch-cleaning spray).


Binson Echorecs are amazingly-engineered machines: where a tape echo's (ie Copicat) input sound is recorded to tape, on a Binson it is recorded onto a circular spinning disc which has replay heads poisitioned around it. It is possible to select single and repeating echoes - these units have a sound all of their own. They look fantastic at night (or on a darkened stage) with the magic eye valve gowing green and the backlit plexiglass fascia.


Binsons were one of the must-have pieces of equipment for bands in the early sixties, alongside the Fender Stratocaster and Vox AC30. Famously-used and abused by Barrett, Gilmour, Waters and Wright of Pink Floyd in the 60s and early 70s (Echorec 2s are very much in evidence on Live at Pompeii and can be seen on photos from many Floyd live shows), Binsons are increasingly sought-after today by studios, mix engineers and producers for their unique sound: Michael Brauer (Stones, McCartney, Coldplay) famously has an Echorec 2 in his arsenal of vintage delays.


This is a vintage unit and may not take kindly to being shipped. It will be well-packed, but if it's not behaving as it should on receipt, please get in touch. Please be aware that to own a machine such as this, you must be prepared to have it regularly checked over and maintained by a competent technician: it should withstand being shipped, but further calibration may be necessary.


We are passionate about supplying high quality vintage gear to our customers and go the extra mile to ensure complete satisfaction. 

Shipping discount available if paying by bank transfer.
