Offered for sale is this Roland SBF-325 in superb cosmetic condition and excellent working order.
It has a few scuffs and scratches, but overall is in good order for a unit that’s around 30 years old (see detailed photos). It sounds amazing – true stereo flanging and chorus that is a tweaker’s delight; please bear in mind this is a vintage analogue unit and can be noisy at extreme settings when compared to digital effects. Some pots and switches can be noisy when they’ve not been used regularly.
From the same highly-regarded rack series as the SDD-320 Dimension D Chorus, the SBF-325 offers 3 different flanger types (mono, stereo, cross-fed stereo) and one chorus. They don’t come up for sale very often and are highly sought-after – easy to see why: it’s a very versatile unit, not only one of the best rackmount Flangers ever made, but also a very good stereo chorus. The controls are Feedback, Rate, Depth, and Center Frequency, and there’s Channel B modulation invert and audio phase inversion switches to give you lots of immediate control. And it has a CV input also. Goes from soft subtle thickening through hazy shimmers to crazy over the top flanging and jet plane wooshes…
(Please note: it is always possible with vintage equipment that some crackly pots/sliders may develop over time when equipment has not been used – even during shipping – this can usually be easily rectified either by use or judicious application of suitable switch-cleaning spray).
It is a UK 240v unit – buyers from USA/Canada and countries with a 110v mains supply will require a step-up transformer. For overseas countries with 240v power, the UK plug will be removed prior to shipping unlesss otherwise requested.
