Dawner Prince Electronics Introduces the Boonar

(PRESS RELEASE): Boonar is an effects pedal precisely designed to deliver sound and feel of the legendary Binson Echorec, a multi-tap magnetic drum echo unit. Everything is in there and more: from thick, juicy tube tone, glorious multi-dimensional echo repeats melted with haunting reverb decays, variable delay time up to a full second and separate playback heads switching system to an amazing and distinctive external looks dominated by a gold finish and green pulsating "magic-eye" level indicator, all packed in an incredibly compact stompbox form.

Boonar shares the same analog signal path as original Echorec but we used high voltage driven FETs as tube emulators and replaced magnetic memory drum with a DSP unit. We developed a special DSP code that faithfully replicates all the characteristics of the actual Binson memory system that we named a virtual magnetic drum.

Reveal an authentic Binson sound and enjoy in magical echoes of the past.


  • Authentic Binson Echorec emulator with up to 1 second of adjustable delay time
  • Separate playback heads switches for maximum of 16 possible combinations.
  • Unique Drum Age control simulating aging characteristics of the magnetic memory system

  • True bypass or buffered trails switching system
