SHERMAN FILTERBANK PROTOTYPE - #31 of 40 Made


via this auction

"One of just 40 prototype units hand-built by Herman Gillis (aka “Sherman”) in 1996. Excellent condition and full working order.

These original units did not have MIDI.

NOTE: This unit is working well but will be checked internally and tested by our techs. Shipping will be 10 working days from purchase.

According to the Sherman website just 40 of these Belgian beasts were made. No MIDI and the back “panel” is plastic plumbing pipe. No frills – all thrills.

Serial number: 31 – signed on the back by Herman!

In terms of functionality and sound it is obviously closer to the early Filterbank 1.

Very clean with almost no signs of age or use. A small amount of scratching around one screw is all we can see.
220/240v unit. A step-up transformer will be required for use on 110/120v supplies."

This one was spotted and sent in via M Me.
