If so, then i've got a problem. I just got an original EP-2 for 300 bux because it has this one issue... It does not record over your old material, it is like stuck in something like the "sound on sound" mode of the later solid-state echoplexes. In other words, it just keeps playing back your old material instead of recording over it and working as an echo should... very annoying. Other than that it works fine. Electrolytics look to have just been replaced. Brand new fullltone tape cartridge, and I cleaned the entire tape travel path including pinch roller with teh proper cleaning stuff and demagnitized the heads thoroughly. What's up? Any ideas?
