Early 1970's Dewtron Mister Bassman Bass Pedal Synth

Pics of the inside below.


"1970's Dewtron Mister Bassman synth pedal in excellent working condition. Made famous by Yes, Pink Floyd, & Genesis in the early 70's these bass synth pedals seldom come up for auction. This one is relatively clean for it's age & seems to function close to properly. It has a big lush synth bass sound, very deep & round. The pedals play up and down the chromatic scale in both octave settings. Yellow pedals three & four from the left play the same note, not sure if that's the design of something that needs to be fixed. The sustain causes some interesting things to happen with pitch. With the sustain button engaged the pitch's rise up- a cool effect, but not what I believe the unit supposed to do. You'll notice that the batteries have been replaced with a couple of power adaptors & a newer power cable. The Sustain & Octave buttons are long gone but still engage properly. Other than that everything appears stock. I'm told this one may have belonged to Mike Rutherford but unfortunately have no way of confirming this. Really wonderful synth bass pedal, lots of fun for creating & arranging!.."
