Musicaid Clap Trap

via this auction

"A rare early analogue Musicaid Clap Trap in good cosmetic condition and very good working order.

I recently had this serviced by Synth Restore in Bedford so it’s ready for studio use or live!

There is minor wear and tear but overall it's in good condition. One knob is missing its white cap.

There are very few analogue Clap Traps in existence. Famously-used (and abused) by Throbbing Gristle and The Human League among others...

Sonically it offers a wide range - from huge oceanic crashing waves of noise to rhythmically-challenged helium finger pops (thanks, Ensemble control) - there's also occasional near-realistic electronic claps in in amongst the myriad options. This is a very early unit and is pretty wild compared to the later ones - some ear-piercing resonance at higher settings make this a contender for serious techno-abuse."
