This is for all the early-adopters, the wait-and-seers, the got-it-for-Christmasers, the sold-it-and-bought-it-againers, and those still haunted from selling it. Who still has love for the Catalinbread Belle Epoch? I just ordered one from Musicians Friend at a price I couldn't pass up. My setup is still simple: Classic Player Jaguar/BB ProCoRat RI/Line 6 M5/Bearfoot EGOD & RRB/VP jr/DE7/Bassman RI. I was thinking I might really love the Epoch since I have the Bassman and no effects loop, so why not take a chance on a delay that shines out in front of an amp? I don't really use the M5 for delay, weirdly, and moreso, I find I like the reverb up front, after the Rat. Then the M5 has some additional use as a Muff, a para EQ, a tremolo or odd modulation. Plus, I just really don't like the sound of it last in the chain, for whatever reason. Muddies up the DE7 when it's in close proximity. I know this setup is kind of not conventional, it's just the placement where everything works well together. But anyway, I want a delay that stands out. The DE7 is so good at nice underneath tones, and great at near oscillation and being soupy when you want it, and still great for leads -- especially with fuzz. I guess I want a complimentary tape echo simulation to the DE7 that contrasts basically by being more "up front." If I needed another type of delay sound, I could always turn to the M5 for now. I just let loose a a Supa Puss I didn't dislike, I just want to keep the space as tight as I can until I decide on a board and what I really need. Also, I've been looking for a reason to try a Catalinbread pedal for a long time now. Will I be pleased with the Belle Epoch as a first impression?
