It didn't occur to me to actually blog about it until Sara suggested it, but we've been listing a ton of really cool vintage effects pedals in the FMO Gear Shop lately. If you haven't stopped in for a while, you should definitely check it out. Among some of the noteworthy listings have been a Ludwig Phase II Synthesizer, WEM Rush Pep Box, John Hornby-Skewes Zonk II, Audio Matrix Mini Boogee, Mu-Tron Bi-Phase, Mu-Tron Flanger, Systech Overdrive, Ibanez AD-80 Analog Delay, Electro-Harmonix Talking Pedal, Electro-Harmonix Queen Triggered Wah, Lemon Studio Sound Stretcher A, Maestro Filter Sample/Hold, Keio Singing Geisha Synthesizer Traveler, with several more items yet to be listed.
After a rather lengthy lull during most of the recession, the FMO Gear Shop has seen a surge of activity over the past couple of months with all these new listings. We've had a few vintage pieces that came in and got sold so fast, we hardly had time to play with them. Alas, payroll and overhead are great motivators for moving things along, so away they go... I've also decided to scale down my collection of vintage keyboards and analog synthesizers. So we'll be selling a Fender Rhodes Stage 73 Mark II electric piano, RMI 368x Electra Piano and Harpsichord, Univox Mini Korg analog mono synth, and a Multivox MX-440 String & Brass (a string ensemble identical to the Roland RS-202).
