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

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 18 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.

It has scuffs and signs of age/wear but is in good condition overall. The only major cosmetic detail is the damaged side section. The plastic case has been punctured at some point and has been patched, see the photo for more detail.
