Really excellent example of a stunning 60s German valve tape echo – an uncommon “Super 61” fully serviced and sounding fantastic.
You need to get the levels right to get the best out of these machines, but they reward experimentation – they can be noisy compared to later solid state machines, but they have bags of character and ooze class and warmth.
The condition is excellent. The face is superb; the three knobs are not original but they look the part. The metal case has some scuffs but overall it’s looking great. Valves are vintage ECC83s and an ECC82, mostly Telefunkens.
The power socket has been converted to an IEC; the input and output sockets have not been converted but we have made three leads to allow it to be used with 1/4″ jacks.
(Please note: it is always possible with vintage equipment that some crackly pots/sliders may develop over time when equipment has not been used – even during shipping – this can usually be easily rectified either by use or judicious application of suitable switch-cleaning spray).
