Rare rack-mount stereo phaser from the Roland Studio Series (RSS). Sounds incredible - undoubtedly one of our favourite phasers, and indeed effects of any type.

Roland PH-830 for sale in full working order.
It’s a monster. We just used this unit at Synthfest as part of our demo set up and even with a simple random pattern from a Syncussion through it (and with all the other gear going around it) people were drawn to the sound.
In very good cosmetic condition with minor signs of age to the face. The edges and rack ears had some wear and have now been re-painted black and now present well when racked. There are some oxidation spots and rack rash to the top. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

100v Japanese model. For customers on 220/240v supplies we will supply a high quality step-down transformer free of charge with your purchase - let us know if this is not required. On North American mains (115/120v supplies) this unit will run without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use. We do not recommend using cheap, generic Chinese mains transformers - please ask if you have any questions about powering this unit.

PH-830 feedback work out - this is right up there with the best phasers out there. It can do subtle, rich shimmer, but (perhaps unsurprisingly🙂) here we’re seeing what it can do to when things get weird. One channel is routed into the other to turn it into a monster rack Bi-Phase and then it goes to work on RE-150’s oscillations. This thing has such a huge range - just about managed to keep the wild, plunging frequencies from clipping on the recording... Rare, remarkable, and for sale on the site now ➡️➡️

Roland PH-830 Stereo Phaser on test - here turned into a Bi-phase with one channel routed into the other. An incredible sounding phase shifter with potential for independent CV control of each channel. Like most of the RSS Roland Studio System racks it is both rare and ridiculously well made, and it’s available now if you’re quick. Not listed on the site until tomorrow so email us at [email protected] now to secure it. .

“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.”
"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!”
"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’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.”
"Just received my Roland RS 505 Paraphonic! Thanks so much - arrived very promptly, well packaged, in great condition and sounds amazing! Best seller."
"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”
“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!”
"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!"
“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."
"Finally, a company that tracks down all those brilliant curiosities that bring so much character and personality to a studio."
"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."
“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.”
“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."
"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."
"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!”
"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."
