The Gecko™ is everything you’ve ever wanted from an echo. It’s got warmth, tone and versatility in a very small package. Its vintage digital echo chip gives you clean repeats while maintaining the warmth and smoothness of your tube amp tone. This little guy doesn’t just climb the walls, he bounces off of them as well.
