Serviced and sounding superb. We’ve sold a few Musicaid Clap Traps as well as the later Simmons and some are better than others, even after servicing – this one is ticking all the boxes for us sonically and is capable of some wild (and very un-clappy) noises.

There are very few analogue Clap Traps in existence. Famously used (and abused) by Throbbing Gristle and The Human League among others… Sonically it offers a wide range – from huge oceanic crashing waves of noise to rhythmically-challenged helium finger pops (thanks, Ensemble control) – there’s also occasional near-realistic electronic claps in amongst the myriad options.

For sale serviced and in excellent working order.

The condition of this unit is excellent, with only minor scuffs and scrapes across the case.

240v unit.

It is always possible with vintage equipment that crackly pots/sliders may develop over time when equipment has not been used – even during shipping – this can usually be easily rectified either by a few turns or in extreme cases, with suitable switch-cleaning spray.
