Doepfer-COMP
YES IT’S A(NOTHER) MASSIVE C&C / TG GEAR SALE
Well I mentioned it last year and now here it is…
batch one of our studio clear out bonanza. The second batch will be later this year and will be mostly guitar pedals - lots of them.

So… in light of the fact that Cosey and me are drastically cutting down our future live performances (to zero as I write this) we’ve gone through our studio cupboards and decided to sell a whole bunch of gear we probably (hopefully) won’t be needing again. And no… we are not retiring (do musicians ever really retire?), we’re just spending a lot less time performing and a lot more (most) of our time on studio based projects - and trying to get some long delayed albums and releases out to you all.

The nitty gritty…
All of the items below have been used in the studio on numerous Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey or Carter Tutti Void albums by me, Cosey and a few items by Sleazy too. Some items have been used in live C&C and TG performances so won’t be cosmetically pristine as others that just lived in our studio - all the items are in working order and generally good condition and any ‘issues’ are noted in the descriptions. I have embedded links to various websites which include additional technical information about the items. Please visit these links first as they may answer any queries you have,.


In our previous sales potential buyers have occasionally asked me to reserve items while they raise funds… this is fine as long as it isn’t for more than a few weeks.

Most prices include insurance & postage, for those that don’t let me know where in the UK you are and I will get a quote. As I am VAT registered all the prices include 20% VAT (if requested a VAT invoice can be included with the sale) and I can also write a 'Letter of Provenance' at no extra charge (if requested). I prefer transactions to be by direct bank transfer but I will also accept PayPal. I am also willing to negotiate a discount for buyers interested in multiple items. Also - and I know this is like shouting at the Moon - but NO MORE TIME WASTERS PLEASE! I will just ignore anyone asking questions not related to actually buying any of this gear.

Please use this contact form for all enquiries regarding buying items on this page.

PLEASE NOTE (updated and enlarged because people are not reading this part!)
Due to past experiences I am only willing to sell/post these items within the UK, if you live outside the UK then there is no sale!

LUMANOISE
TR808 Cymbal Clone
Uses six fixed frequency square wave oscillators. The six oscillator cluster circuit came from the TR808 drum machine for creating it's classic cymbal sound and other metal plate sounds.

Each of the six oscillators has a dedicated volume knob and all six are fed though a -12dB resonant low pass filter. The filter's cutoff can be controlled by a top mounted LDR sensor.
