The holy grail of envelope filters, the ultimate funk pedal.
It has just come back from a service/calibration – our tech who knows how to get the best out of these old monsters and it’s sounding superb and very squelchy, as you’d wish.
We’ve sold quite a few of these pedals and always have one in the studio; this one is in good working order and more than ready to continue oozing out filthy funk for the next 30-40 years.
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.
CONDITION: Has the usual scuffs and wear but we’ve fitted an original set of knobs and overall it’s looking pretty good. The battery cover was missing so we’ve added a replacement. Oxidation on the base has been treated with rust-killer. Click on the photos to zoom in and see more shots.
An original Musitronics Mu-tron III for sale in full working order. This is a great analogue envelope filter (auto-wah) from the legendary Musitronics Corporation – built to withstand everything 70s musicians could throw at it – with a solid aluminium and steel case and chunky controls this vintage Made In USA pedal weighs in at over 1.5kg.
It sounds huge, fat and glorious – whatever you choose to put through it: guitar, bass or keys, it exhibits pure bona fide funk credentials. This is the real deal.
“the biggest, baddest, funkiest envelope filter of all-time”
Stevie Wonder, Bootsy Collins, Jerry Garcia…
Guitars, bass, Rhodes, synths, clavinet – all work well with this pedal – it instantly transports you back in time (sonically rather than literally of course) and works its analogue magic on digital sources breathing warmth and life into soft synths and samples. This pedal is what our re-amping box was made for…
These pedals have been reissued by Haz Laboratories, but though they look the part they’re a pale imitation: the originals just have that thickness and sonic mojo that the reissue units lack. We’ve tried many reissue pedals against vintage originals and while some do a passable job, most fall short when compared to the real thing. In addition, original pedals should hold their value or offer a good return as an investment.
