Rare Dynacord EC 280 vintage desktop echo box

"ow, this really is a unique specimen. It's pretty large, it's old, it crackles and sometimes pops, but everything works and when you get her tuned right, you will be in vintage audio reverbecho heaven. I'm sure Boards of Canada have one of these in their studio. It lets you route signals in all sorts of odd ways (I've used just this and a mixer to pretty amazing affect!) and create the most detuned, odd, dreamy and sometimes downright dreadful audio you ever heard. Because its some sort of weird hybrid, its pretty unpredictable, apart from that theres one knob that always delivers the detuned weirdness! you can feed anything into this and get amazing results, it sounds especially good after a preamp and before ableton live on a guitar signal. It's old, so there is some case damage, but she's 75% cosmetic. functionally its hard to say because its difficult to know what everything is supposed to do, but it all does what you'd expect, so it's 99% functionally perfect in my opinion. it's just got a lead coming out the back, no batteries, no PSU hassle. it works on UK voltage. not sure what else to say apart from that this is a close to unique opportunity to acquire a legendary and very rare desktop reverb unit."
