BOSS NF-1 Noise Gate, Japan 1979 • € 90

BOSS NF-1 Noise Gate (silver screw, transparency switch), Japan 1979

The NF-1 is just a simple noise gate that cuts off the signal once the level falls below the threshold set. Basically it is a reversed SG-1 and can be modded to work like a (much more valuable) Slow Gear. This particular sample is in exc.- condition and comes with original box and manual. And it is the most sought after first version with transparency switch and silver screw.

Colorsound Overdriver • € 390

Colorsound Overdriver, England 1976

1976 Colorsound (Jumbo) Overdriver. This example is in very nice all original condition, except for an additional power socket - so you can run it off a power supply, battery snap still present and working though. This beast is loud and sounds fantastic. Famously used by Jeff Beck, Marc Bolan and others. No battery included.

Electro-Harmonix Crying Tone Pedal, USA 1979 • € 175

Electro-Harmonix Crying Tone Pedal, USA 1978

This Electro-Harmonix Crying Tone wah wah pedal is as cool as it gets, excellent condition, working flawlessly, almost immaculate.

Electro-Harmonix Bad Stone, USA 1975 • € 150

Electro-Harmonix Crying Tone Pedal, USA 1978

Up for sale is a very rare Electro-Harmonix Bad Stone Phase Shifter v1 from 1975, the first year of production. This is the coveted 18 Volt version (2x9 V block) with the Color switch. It is in incredibly beautiful exterior shape and internally all original (the two battery terminals might not be original), however it is not working properly. Dry signal is there, switched to effect (wet) there is a slight volume drop. Wet signal can be altered with the blend knob but it sounds more like a tone control. When you turn the internal trim pots, you can hear clearly all kinds of phase shifting, but only when you turn the pots manually. Seems that the LFO does not sweep automatically. This might be an easy fix (or maybe not), but since I am not an expert in electronics, I am unable to fix it myself. For more details see the photos, pics form part of the description. No batteries included!

Ibanez BPL Bi-Stage Phaser, Japan 1985 • € 75

Ibanez BPL Bi-Stage Phaser, Japan 1985

The Ibanez BPL is an exceptional phaser that still flies under the radar. This particular sample is all original, in near mint condition, fully tested and working flawlessly.

Ibanez MSL Metal Screamer, Japan 1985 • € 120

Ibanez MSL Metal Screamer, Japan 1985

It is still a well kept secret that the Mteal Screamer of the ephemeral Master Series was actually a Tube Screamer that wasn't given its legit name due to zeitgeist reasons - metal was king, blues rock was lame...

So this Metal Screamer is probably the least expensive original 1980s Tube Screamer you may find out there. It's in exc.- condition, all original and it sounds just killer!

Ibanez PH99 Classic Phase, Japan 1997 • € 110

Ibanez PH99 Classic Phase, Japan 1997

This is really hard to come by: an Ibanez PH99 Classic Phase, undoubtedly one of the best Phaser pedals ever made in stompbox size. The PH99 is in near mint condition, fully tested and working flawlessly.

Ibanez SML Super Metal, Japan 1985 • € 60

Ibanez SML Super Metal, Japan 1985

Ibanez SML Super Metal, made in Japan 1985, has two JRC4558D op-amps, some paint chips, batery connector is fixed with duct tape, other than that in great working condition.

Lemon StudioSound Digi Delay, Germany 1979 • € 680

Lemon StudioSound Digi-Delay, Germany 1979

Extremely rare Lemon StudioSound Digi Delay, made in Germany in 1979, in excellent cosmetical shape and perfect working order. The unit was recently serviced by Gerard Daleiden, the original owner and pedal builder of Lemon StudioSound. He confirmed the impeccable condition.
BTW: This "Digital Delay" is truly analog with eight TDA1022 bucket brigade delay chips, each with 512 stages. This is a European 220-240 Volt version.

Ricken's (JEN) Fuzz FR III, Italy 1975 • € 250

Ricken's Fuzz FR III, Italy 1975

Up for your consideration is a Ricken's FR-III Fuzz effect pedal, manufactured by JEN in Italy in the 1970s. It features almost the same circuit and many similar components to the legendary VOX Tone Benders, which at the time were also being made by JEN.
Awesome condition with just some minor paint chips, technically everything is working flawlessly. No battery included.

Top Gear 4 channel Mini Mixer, England 1970s • € 95

Top Gear 4-channel Mini Mixer, England 1970s

This is a Top Gear 4 channel Mini Mixer, made in the 1970s in England by Top Gear. It dates back to Top Gear's paramount years in the market, which was during the mid 1970s. This mixer is in excellent working condition and in overall beautiful exterior shape.
