Rare Schaller Rotor Sound for sale in very good cosmetic condition and excellent working order.

NOTE THAT THE PHOTOS ARE FOR A PREVIOUS UNIT – the current one is in similar condition: minor scuffs only, and full working order. Photos will follow soon – if it doesn’t sell first…

This mono unit features controls for Intensity (dry/wet mix) and Speed.

Dating from the mid-late sixties, this has an unusual circuit design using 19 inductors and has a unique sound. It works superbly – unless you really want a realistic Leslie effect (in which case you should buy a Dynacord CLS-222 or Neo Ventilator). I love what it does to beats especially, but it will add movement and interest to any source and makes a great mix send effect. I’ve heard that Kraftwerk used them, but can’t recall the source – I would expect these would have been pressed into service on the Krautrock scene as Leslie emulators weren’t overly common back then.

We have two of these in our studio – we like them that much…

If you turn the Intensity knob fully clockwise you get a wet-only setting – the resulting signal seems quieter than it should be, but this is completely normal.
