Here for the gear
Echocord super

Nice Find, I believe these are quite sought after, and are very well made, Ive repaired a few of these and I hope the following information is useful;

INST 1 pin 1 = input
pin 2 = ground
pin 3 = output (low level. Possibly reverb only)

i.e. INST 1 socket is a combined input/output

INST 2 & INST 3 pin 1 = input
pin 2 = ground
pin 3 = no connection

i.e. INST 2 & 3 sockets are inputs only, INST 3 bypasses the preamp and
tone controls so is less sensitive, there is a preset level control
for INST 3 at the LH front somewhere, may be within the tape
loop compartment ?

MIC1 & MIC2 Pin 1 = hot ? (Unsure of phasing)
Pin 2 = ground
Pin 3 = cold ? (Unsure of phasing)
Pin 4 = output (high level, possibly Dry + Reverb)
Pin 5 = output (low level. Possibly reverb only)

OUTPUT Pin1 = (high level, possibly Dry + Reverb)
Pin 2 = ground
Pin 3 = (low level. Possibly reverb only)

The two front panel remote conectors are for footswitch conections and will
have no effect on the operation of the unit if left unnconnected.

With an input connected and switched on you should be able to see the
'Magic Eye' responding this is an indication of signal onto the tape loop.

One of the controls below the push buttons (may be tone?) can pull in and out
and is called Norm/Direct this does have an effect on the output but can't
remember now ?

Finally, and I don't wish to be appear patronising be there is a tape loop fitted
isn't there ?

Again very best wishes for this as these are excellent retro units.
