Product Description

Great with guitar and synth, but also (as can be heard below) capable of destroying beats if you find the sweet spots in the settings.

Essentially this is several of the legendary effects that Tom Oberheim designed for Maestro, all in one beautiful, super-sized unit (the scale may not be obvious from the pictures but it's about 55cm long - the buttons are the same ones as one the classic Maestro PS-1A phaser).

In excellent working order. Fully serviced by our in-house tech; the sliders on these can become very sticky, but this one has had plenty of time spent on it cleaning and re-lubricating the slider tracks. Fully tested by us - because it's just so good and begs to be played with - put a beat, guitar or keys through it and then just start experimenting, stacking the effects and cracking a big smile... Demos below.

These units are rare and not well known, but as soon as we got our first one and heard it we had to track down another so we could keep one for the studio.

From left to right the effects are:

  • Waveform

  • Filter & Sample/Hold

  • Phaser

  • Envelope

  • Sub-harmonic

  • And there is also a sensitivity control that affects the envelope and sub-harmonic


This unit is in excellent condition with a few small scuffs to the edges and on the face. Some of the slider caps are slightly off centre but this doesn't affect the functioning of the unit. The original case is worn but functions fine. See photos for more info on cosmetic condition.
