T-120 VIDEOTAPE ECHO
The Sound of Nostalgia
Inspired by the garbled audio that accompanies worn-out and poorly aged budget bin video tape, the T-120 Videotape Echo gives you exactly the type of sound that you're hearing in your head when you look at it.
Feed your guitar through the T-120, and the recorded playback will be the sound of low bandwidth tape being fed haphazardly through a magnetic read head by an uncalibrated, unbalanced feed mechanism.
The T-120 Deluxe is offered as an optional $80 USD upgrade to the T120 for those that want more out of them. It takes the features and sound of the standard model, and builds upon it, offering several additional features:
- Soft Switching
- Echo Trails
- Secondary Footswitch, enabling swells of the echo repeats. Swell function can be used even in bypass mode for momentary operation
- Stereo spread output via TRS output jack.
Please note that Tap Tempo is not currently an available feature, and will not be for the foreseeable future.

The current waitlist time is over a year. It may well go quicker, but be prepared to be patient. I don't have a more accurate estimate. Please don't email me asking for one.
I take orders for T-120s in bi-weekly batches of roughly 20, taking from the top of the list. At the start of each batch, I contact the people nearest the top of the list to let them know that I can now take their order. They will then be able to purchase one of the units being built, via PayPal.**
When the batch is built, I will send the pedal you reserved off to you and provide you with a tracking number so that you can impatiently await its arrival :)
**To be clear, no payment gets made upon joining the waitlist. I don't accept any payment until I am building your unit. This also means that I don't accept periodic instalments of payment. I do not use Venmo. Please ensure you have a PayPal account set up when you join the list or at the very least by the time your name comes up.
The waiting list was originally implemented when Demedash Effects was nothing more than a part time occupation, to let me take orders and build pedals in a way that made sense around my schedule.
Now that it has been a full time occupation for over a year, I am finding that the waiting list system is poorly suited to such a popular pedal. It has inherent inefficiencies that make it difficult for me to easily get pedals into the hands of those that want them, and creates an enormous amount of extra work on my end.
As such, in addition to going through the the waiting list as I have since I began selling the T-120, I will occasionally drop batches for first-come, first-serve sale as well, in order to get more pedals out into the hands of those that want them in a more timely manner.
The waiting list can still be joined by emailing me with the following information:
- Email address where I can contact you
- Instagram handle if applicable
- Confirmation that you've read the waitlist details
