Sir Drive a Lot, 24.10.2016
... the Malekko Ekko 616 MKII can do quite well!

I was looking for a new delay for my guitar effectboard, and I ordered some analogue and digital versions for comparison. The 616 has already inspired me in some videos, so it was with it.

I tested mainly with a Squier Telecaster on a 90's Trace Elliot Tramp Hybrid on a Trace Elliot Tramp 4x12er box, a slightly beautifully colored Kombi the harsh effects gladly forgive times.

Haptically and visually, the Ekko 616 comes to my taste; Simple, simple, but in an enormously chic, red livery. The packaging is appropriate; No "accessories". All controls run pleasantly, not too lightly. One has the feeling rather a tool than an article for the showcase to get.

The operation via the usual time / rain / mix controls is self-explanatory; Delay times up to 650 ms are available. For the switchable modulation, there is Speed ??/ Depth, a buffer can be activated via another button. Inside a level pot for boost or cut, which was already set for my taste, however, already reasonable.

The sound - great. The typical "wash" analog delays is there, but the bandwidth felt in the repeats is huge. Quickly, the part is driven into the oscillation or huge surfaces built up mainly in the overtones and high frequencies simply creamy sound. Even in decent settings the part simply delivers: Warm, large. It is rather hard to find settings that do not sound good. Not as brilliant as a digital delay, but still very, very clear.
And not just the guitar makes the 616 fun; On the bass it does not sound any worse!

But the modulation did not impress me too much. Not that she does not sound good, quite the opposite. However, the corresponding Depth knob is only "zero" over "extreme" to "brutally exaggerated". A light weight can only be achieved with a lot of fingertip feeling. Too bad, a somewhat more practical control range would have been great here. The speed regulator, however, is completely okay; Small but good to adjust. When activated, the corresponding LED indicates the speed by flashing. A bit sad, but not a broken leg.

The price may be a little steep, but the Malekko Ekko 616 MKII definitely does not have to hide behind the likes of Keeley's digital or the MXR Carbon Copies; A great delay.
Who like me does not often change the pedals, it will handle it and gets something decent.

The 616 was not at the end. Why? Malekko supplies the 616 also in the "Dark" variant: darker sound and housing color, similar innards. I have a bad-tempered brother, just fits better to my style, but they do not give quality.
