Rare original Script Logo MXR Phase 45 Pedal dating from 1974/75 for sale in good condition and perfect working order.
These early production pedals are highly-prized by collectors for their rarity, and by players for their sound.
As is often the case with these old pedals, the original foam that protected the circuit board has long since perished.
It is fitted with a 9v battery and ready to play.
Built like a tank – made in the USA.
This is in good condition for a vintage foot pedal that’s nearly 40 years old with scuff and dings to the finish as you’d expect – see the detailed photos.
Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen – many guitarists and keyboard players have sculpted their signature sounds with early MXR pedals.
Guitars, bass, Rhodes, synths – all can sound great through 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. It is a great studio mix tool – perfect for adding a thick velvety analogue swirl to whatever you care to put through it.
These very pedals have been reissued by Dunlop, but the originals just have that sound – and mojo – that new 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.
We have other vintage MXR units available – please get in touch if interested.
We can't stop here, this is bat country! Our next auction (November 22nd) features some head-turning, show-stopping synths, however we also wanted to put the spotlight...
