Product Description

An original Marshall Time Modulator A-5002 for sale

Designed in the late seventies by Steven St. Croix, these all-analogue units were way ahead of their time with sonic performance that remains exceptional to this day. It is a truly legendary effect that represents the pinnacle of analogue circuit design – see below for some of the history of how it began as a bet (yes, really).

These feature two analogue delay modules with a maximum delay of 52 ms each. Tony Visconti used one on David Bowie’s late 70s recordings (eg the main ‘Ashes To Ashes’ riff). Stevie Wonder used his on 'Songs In The Key Of Life' and 'Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants' and an MTM that was used in the signal chain to treat James Earl Jones' voice to create Darth Vader's distinctive flanged voice effect. Martin Hannett used his so extensively in the studio (most famously with Joy Division) that Martin Moscrop of A Certain Ratio told us they used to refer to it as the Marshall Time Waster...

Given its history and recording pedigree, it should be more than clear that this is a very versatile and fabulously-deep box of tricks that will surprise and inspire you: by no means is this just another me-too flanger..

Not always the simplest effect to operate: the various delay/phasing/flanging type effects from this analogue rack seem limitless and - unlike other modulation/delay racks we've used - controls interact in unusual ways and are not necessarily intuitive. It rewards perseverance with some amazing sounds, but treat it with extreme caution and operate at modest volume levels - the levels of feedback that can emanate from this thing can destroy speakers, not to mention your ears!
