EKO Bass Pedal K3

via this auction

Posting this for the pics of the inside below.

From the listing: "I bought these on eBay from a grumpy man in Shropshire in 2009 thinking I would give them the breath of life. I was particularly interested in the one and a half octave range as I was play a plain old 13 note C to C unit in the band I was in and wanted more notes.

Alas, they’ve sat in a corner of my workshop for a decade and three house moves and having given this a lot of thought I've reluctantly come to the conclusion that I’m not the one to get these old bass pedals up and running.

What you see in the photos is what you get. The sides/feet disintegrated at some point and were thrown away. As you can see, the base, included in the sale, is also in the process of disintegrating!

I’ve tested them and they power up and make some noises and I think all the pedals work, the photo with the lights shows those that fire up. The volume is a little scratchy but should clean up okay. I suspect the electrolytic capacitors will all need replacing along with some of the lights a thoroughly good clean and a new case! In short they need the love and attention I don’t have time to give them to get them back up and working as they should."
