The holy grail of envelope filters, the ultimate funk pedal. Comes complete with custom switchable voltage power supply for worldwide use (more info below).
It has just come back from a service/calibration – our tech 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.
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 and is still (for us) “the biggest, baddest, funkiest envelope filter of all-time”
VOLTAGE: Will run on two 9v batteries or mains power. The original power supplies for these are US-only, and very uncommon, so we have had this modded to use a modern switching power supply so it can be used anywhere in the world. It’s actually a re-used laptop supply – a clever and environmentally friendly trick from our tech! Supplied with a UK or EU plug; US and Canadian buyers note – you will need a source a standard “figure of eight” lead to plug into the power supply.
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.
Good cosmetics overall. Has the usual scuffs and dings but it’s pretty good for a vintage Mutron. Knobs are original. Power socket has been replaced. See photos for more information.

“If not a new language, then at least a very challenging, old dialect that will take me some time to assimilate. I’ve been waiting a long time for the challenge. Thank you @soundgasltd, she’s a beaut...and nobody prepares and packs like you fine folks.”
"Just received my Roland RS 505 Paraphonic! Thanks so much - arrived very promptly, well packaged, in great condition and sounds amazing! Best seller."
“Imagine the perfect eBay.... with everything you never knew you wanted… and you can rest assured that your vintage and rare wobbly sound device will turn up on time and in one piece and possibly in even better condition that when it left the workshop. Soundgas - literally amazing."
"Still in shock! Can not believe how good the seller is. This product was inspected, and shipped from the UK to the USA quicker than orders from my home state. Highly recommend these guys."
"Excellent equipment, wonderful service. I fully recommend Soundgas to anyone in the vintage gear market and I will definitely be a return customer. The gear itself was exactly as advertised and in great condition."
“The Space Echo made its way to me - it looks and sounds beyond dreams, thanks guys for your great service and communication.”
"Soundgas offer a great service, sourcing esoteric gear that works great."
“I’ve bought a number of items from Soundgas recently, and have been really impressed with their service. It takes the stress out of buying vintage gear to know it’s been properly (and faithfully) serviced or restored. Their after-sales service has also been exemplary. Highly recommended.”
"Soundgas provided the absolutely top service in terms of item quality as well as service and communication. Shipping was fast, packing was top notch. These people deserve the best reputation they already have. Many many thanks, guys."
"When you are spending big money of vintage gear it's nice to have the confidence of impeccable service, sales and support... some of the best in the industry! Impeccable people, incredible equipment… my poor poor fiancé"
“The perfect place to hear, learn about and then buy your most wanted piece of vintage music gear! I've not only managed to buy a rare piece of equipment I really wanted, but I have the guarantee it's been serviced, and I got it from people who are clearly passionate and knowledgeable about what they do, as well as super friendly and responsive by email. Thoroughly recommended!”
“I have bought two Moog synths from Soundgas over the past year, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about their selection of vintage products, the level of service, diligent responses to email, and expedient shipping with copious protective packaging. Soundgas is an impressive operation. My synths also sound amazing! These folks have made my vintage keyboard dreams come true in short order!”
"DREAM. COME. TRUE. My music has taken me around the world a few times...and if you are like me and absolutely adore vintage gear...Soundgas is the stuff of LEGENDS. It's the shop that people like us search for our whole lives- fantastic and rare selections, and the technical know-how to repair and or mod these vintage items to get them into shape to flow with your modern setup."
"Finally, a company that tracks down all those brilliant curiosities that bring so much character and personality to a studio."
"The packing job to get it over to the US was superb, and the sound and performance of my Space Echo exceeds all of my expectations. I hope to do business with Soundgas again in the future. Many thanks!”
"Soundgas has an unbelievable selection of the cool, old stuff that’s hard to find. Tony knows his stuff and goes out of his way to make sure the transaction is a smooth one. Thanks guys!"
"Packed with love and care. A stampede couldn't have crushed this thing. Works great and sounds like a dream. I love you Soundgas."
“I purchased a completely overhauled vintage valve Binson Echorec 2 T7E modified with varispeed, wet-only output, and a new paint job from Soundgas in early 2018. Tony and his team did an amazing job during every step of the purchase”
“If you are a vintage audio gear head then this is the place you have been looking for all your life. Pretty much any piece of classic or obscure kit that you are after is available here... But the clincher for me is that the gear they sell has been restored by their top techs (unless otherwise noted) which is really very important when dealing with, for example, synths from 30 years ago.”
