About This Listing

HC Coron AD-500 Analog Delay 1980 Japan in excellent condition and in full working order. These machine have a special slap back function, which makes them desirable for certain kinds of music.

Where does the term HC come from as in " HC Coron " ?
In the 70's a distributing company called " Holland Centre " founded by the fam. Stafhorst  imported Coron pedals, but had them rebranded into HC Coron. HC is an abbreviation of Holland Centre. Most HC Coron pedals can be retrieved in The Netherlands for that reason.

Extremely uber rare analog delay made by HC Coron in 1980. Most collectors know of its existence but never encountered one in the wild. A few recording studio's have one mostly used for the warmest analog delays.

Quoted from 1981 Coron brochure :
"The Analog Delay provides a reliable, completely electronic means of simulating Echo and Reverberation. Until now all echo and reverb effects relied on moving parts: springs, tape loops, and other mechanical gear that could wear out or break down in the middle of your play. The Mix control provides adjustment of the ratio between original and delayed signal. The Repeat control allows the user to return a selectable amount of the delayed signal back to the input to be delayed again, thus providing multiple echos with varying delay times. The Delay control increases the time that the signal is delayed. The Input Level control can accept a wide range of signal level for fine condition by adjusting its level. A slid switch of Output gives you low or high level output. A slide switch of Delay shift gives you twice or half of Delay time from its position. This Analog Delay is designed for three way power supplies: two 9 volt dry battery, 18 volt D.C. adaptor, & 12 ~ 20 volt A.C. into non phase adaptor jack. That 18 volt D.C. adaptor you can use + or - center lined D.C. adaptor unit. The foot switch for repeat ON/OFF can be used for: ON position gets echo or repeat delayed signal, and OFF position gets like a CHORUS sound or just one delayed signal by adjusting Delay control. LED lamp indication for Analog Delay ON & Repeat ON, which is easy to be known."
