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… Demo with beats from an Ace Tone FR-1 below, scroll down for a synth demo as well:

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.

The condition is excellent for its age with the only real wear being on the edges and the odd mark on the face. Click on the photos to zoom in and see more images.

Price includes VAT at 20% (for sales in UK/EU) – buyers outside the EU please contact us for tax-free prices. VAT-free sales possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number.

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.
