PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an extraordinary piece of kit that we have totally fallen in love with. Essentially it is several of the legendary effects that Tom Oberheim designed for Maestro, all in one beautiful, super-sized unit (the scale may not be obvious from the pictures but it’s about 55cm long – the buttons are the same ones as one the classic Maestro PS-1A phaser).

In excellent working order. Fully serviced by James Walker at Synth Repair Services. Fully tested by us, because it’s just so good and begs to be played with: put a beat, guitar or keys through it and then just start experimenting, stacking the effects and cracking a big smile… Here’s a recent demo featuring the actual unit for sale (before we had re-attached the logo badge). Scroll down for more demos.

These units are rare and not well known, but as soon as we got this one and heard it we had to track down another so we could keep one for the studio.

This unit is in very good condition – some minor dings and signs of age, mainly to the edges; the logo badge is worn and has been re-attached; the fuse holder is a replacement.

From left to right the effects are:

  • Waveform
  • Filter & Sample/Hold
  • Phaser
  • Envelope
  • Sub-harmonic
  • And there is also a sensitivity control that affects the envelope and sub-harmonic

110/120V unit. You will need a step-down transformer for use in the UK and Europe. We can supply high quality UK-made transformers and do not recommend using cheap Chinese transformers. You can see our US-UK voltage transformers here on ebay – but you can also buy direct (just let us know). You will only need the basic 50va unit for this machine.

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.
