Just to be clear, my Echoplex and a second delay (a late 70s Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man), are in my signal chain. The Memory Man is used only for the oscillating dive at the end of “Eruption” in place of my Univox EC-80 A Echo Chamber which is in repair at the moment.

I want only the reverb going to the wet amp, not the delay from the Echoplex. The delay from the Echoplex should go to the Marshall only as far as I can tell.

In other words, it seems like if I’m trying to capture the studio sound then the Echoplex delay should be into the Marshall and the reverb should be into the wet amp?

If the Echoplex was on the original guitar track and then the reverb was applied to the entire track afterwards, does my idea of having only reverb in the wet amp with my Echoplex delay going to my Marshall make sense? Or am I way off base?
