Echosonic Amp


Two Echosonics. Original cabinet design (left). 2nd generation cabinet (right).


The Echosonic was designed and hand-built by Ray Butts. While only 68 ever being built, the Echosonic found a unique place in history with a built-in tape echo (loop) unit. This patented tape loop echo system was one of the first guitar effects ever built, permanently installed in a high-quality custom-built guitar amp and speaker cabinet combo. First used publicly on a large-scale by Chet Atkins, Echosonic guitar combos have been used by many recording artists through the years including Luther Perkins (Johnny Cash), Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, and Scotty Moore.


Some of Ray Butts' family is involved with others to try and build re-issue Echosonic Amps to be available for sale.
