A very cool (if also quite bonkers) piece of kit, this is essentially a guitar synth/fuzz/octave effect unit; however it can also produce interesting results with other instruments as well. Capable of some amazing effects, beats, textures and wild out-there sounds – works brilliantly with guitar, bass, synth and all sorts of sources.

Fully serviced and tested – it’s in excellent working order and very good condition indeed.

Whilst it tracks reasonably well, please bear in mind that this is vintage analogue technology so requires more precise playing than modern octave/synth pedals for the bass section to be effective. The percussion section is just crazy – there’s nothing like hitting your guitar strings to play the bongos… The tambourine is especially good – one of the best we’ve heard: very 60s.

Condition is good – has some signs of age and wear, scratching where the panel has been cleaned in places, but nothing major or that affects the functioning of the unit.

YouTube demos below (the second is the G-2 version but it is still very informative. With thanks to the uploader).

For sales in UK/EU the price will include VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number – please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.

  • It is a 115v unit and a step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU.
  • We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.
