Uncommon, vintage BBD echo in excellent condition, complete with the original cover and footswitch. Serviced, working well – this is also the best-sounding one of these we’ve heard – so good!
Features the unique Rotafaze setting which adds modulation (designed to simulate wow and flutter of the tape echoes it was simulating) – hear it in the demo below featuring a previous unit we sold.
Four buttons control delay time and four buttons are for Swell which is number of repeats. Will go into wild oscillation if you push the Swell fader up.
Condition is excellent, with only a few minor signs of age across the unit. There is a sticker on the front from the shop that originally sold it (shout out to anyone who remembers Yardley’s in Birmingham!) but this just add to the character of the unit so we have left it on. Corners of the cover are repaired with black tape – it’s not the strongest thing, but we’ve never seen a Mantis complete with it before.
Has a wet-only out so is studio-ready.
