Brand new stock. Assembled, tested and guaranteed by us. The definitive Pearl Syncussion clone, with built-in MIDI, trigger inputs and an onboard manual trigger button for each channel.
This unit is ready to ship (we also have cheaper preorders here).
Backed by our 1 year warranty, plus lifetime tech support for the original owner.
The Syncussion is right up there with our favourite percussion synths – we’ve serviced, modded and sold many examples and know it (literally) inside out; after getting our hands on one of the kits we really rate what has been done by PsyCo X. The case looks great and feels really solid; the sounds and functionality are excellent.
Originally produced in the late 1970’s, good examples of the Pearl Syncussion are hard to come by (and need modding with CV and split outputs). For this new version UK-based PsyCo X have retained the original CV and Trigger inputs (on separate outs), and then the addition of per channel MIDI controlled Triggering, Pitch and Decay greatly expands the possibilities.
MIDI: Supplied with the MIDI to jack oonverter you need to use this. For more info take a look the Midi Reference doc from the designers.
We use these a lot in our demos – there’s a few below and you will find more on our Instagram feed. And of course there is a tonne of Syncussion info and demos online, but get in touch if you need specific information.
Brand new! Assembled, tested and warrantied by us.
For sales in UK/EU the price will include 20% VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number - please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.
Supplied with a switching transformer for use anywhere in the world
Just a few of the times we’ve deployed these units in demos. They are great

Another throwback: Naked PsyCo X Syncussion clones hooked up to our modded KR-55 during final test and calibration. Reposting this because: 1. It was great to finally meet Simon Cox (Si Cox - now we get it!) last week - a top guy who is doing the lord's work down in the South West of the country. And 2. because we have one completed Syncussion left from this batch and you should definitely buy it (or wait until we get the next lot ready - they are here but won't be assembled for a couple of months). . #syncussion #percussion #supersonicgear #drummachine #psycox #synthstagram #synthesizer #electronicmusic #soundgas

This isn’t our *official* first @psycox_syncussion_sy1m demo. But someone stupidly left one on Gid’s bench and accidents will happen... . Gear accidentally being used: “bass” through Maestro W-3 and Telefunken Echomixer; “treble” through Sovtek Small Stone; Space Echo on the effect send from the desk. See something you need? Message now. Should have the first SY-1M completed very soon...

Is there any piece of gear more guaranteed to just make you grin 😁from ear to ear than a Syncussion? Ridiculously easy to use, endlessly inventive, and it has The Best Noises. You need one in your life, and we’re here to help with that - right now we still have a couple of our latest build of Psyco X clones available, and we also have a great example of an original Pearl, modded with split outs and CV control. Rare Evans Super Echo also available, and the Hammond... possibly.

"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."
“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’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.”
“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”
"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."
“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!”
"Packed with love and care. A stampede couldn't have crushed this thing. Works great and sounds like a dream. I love you Soundgas."
“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.”
"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!"
"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!”
“The Space Echo made its way to me - it looks and sounds beyond dreams, thanks guys for your great service and communication.”
"Finally, a company that tracks down all those brilliant curiosities that bring so much character and personality to a studio."
“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.”
"Soundgas offer a great service, sourcing esoteric gear that works great."
"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."
"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."
"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"
"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."
Here’s a quick update for all who’ve placed preorders for the Soundgas Type 636.
