This tube echo is the first Earthtone step towards a psychedelic and wonderful world. Rose wants to be a real alternative to the digital pedals following the path of great effects of the past like Aiwa and Echoplex, but with its own personality; the idea was inspired by the legendary song “Mistreated” by Deep Purple, whose introduction led the path for blues rock ballads.

Sometimes guitar players in search for a 70s sound try to work on the natural distortion of the final valves, but that becomes a compromise when you use a common delay, because the sound after the delay loses the warmth of tube distortion. Earthtone Rose can resolve this thanks to the section piloted by the 12au7 valve.
The echo analog circuit assisted by its famous PT2399 allows the signal repetition and the control of the intervention of the tube. New sound solutions are obtained thanks to a tube amplification section that reaches up to 10db of gain
