You missed it!


An amazing unit capable of some amazing textures and wild out-there sounds. Basically a synth effects unit for brass/woodwind players, it works brilliantly with guitar, bass and all sorts of sources, though passive instruments may require the use of a pre-amp.

Demo of the actual unit for sale below.

Serviced and working well.

Comes with original case and secondary controller/footswitch as shown in the photos.

CONDITION: Excellent cosmetic condition with minimal scratching or scuffs on the face. The edges of the case are showing a few minor dings to the black paintwork. The case and controller are clean with some scratches scattered across both. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition. 

Input is on a minijack socket. Whilst it tracks well and is extremely versatile – please bear in mind that this is vintage analogue technology so is not as perfect as modern octave/synth pedals…

Reputedly used by Kraftwerk, Neu!, Mothers Of Invention, and of course a variety of jazz players.
  • 115v model.
  • 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.
