This listing is for a Metasonix Vacuum Tube synth rig, fully loaded with Metasonix modules and a rare Monorocket High-Power Case in rare bright yellow.  

All of the modules and the case are in excellent condition with some of the modules having their original boxes, no surface scratches (except for rack rashes on some modules), dings, discoloration, spots, or any major cosmetic issue with the modules or case. The Tolex on the case has come unglued on the edges, but that has an easy fix. Please see below. I listed it as in “very good” condition to be conservative.

This is an awesome rig,  working its way into rare vintage. Unbelievable the sounds you can get out of this thing, especially with certain reverb and delay effects.  Everything from raw, gnarly, creamy distortion to a warm, ethereal flutelike or organlike timbers.  I’d keep it if I could, not only as an instrument but also as an investment.  Years will only add value to it.  

Note 1: I’ve listed this item on other sites. I may remove this listing at any time if sold elsewhere.
Note 2: I’m interested in a straight sale only. No trades, please.

Note 3: I'm selling this rig as a single unit.  I will not separate out the modules for individual sale.
4: please check my feedback score on eBay for reference.
Below are the details of what is included:

• 2 x R-55  Limited Edition Thyratron VCOs.  The R-55's are essentially the VCOs from the legendary S-1000 Wretch Machine.  These are very rare, hard to come by.  Includes original boxes.  Out of production. Sold out everywhere;
• 1 x R-51 Vacuum Tube VCA/Distortion.  Includes original box.  Sold out everywhere;
• 1 x R-52 Vacuum-Tube Multi-Mode Filter Module.  Includes original box.  Sold out everywhere;
• 1 x R-53 Vacuum-Tube Waveshaper/RingMod Module.  Includes original box.  Sold out everywhere;

• 1 x Malekko Performance Buffered Mult;
• 1 x Intellijel Buffered Mult; and,
• 1 x Monorocket 9U High Powered Case specifically designed for running the R-55’s. Originally $1199 at Big City. In perfect functional condition and excellent cosmetic condition, no rips, stains, cuts, scrapes, etc.  In pictures, you will see the Tolex coming unglued on some edges.  I don't bother to fix it because it doesn't bother me, but if you'd like to glue it back, Eric Teagan with Monorocket said it's because the glue on the Tolex becomes dry and that it could be easily fixed with a hairdryer. (Yup, a hairdryer.  When used carefully.)   No need to add more glue.  Actually, he recommends you don't add glue. Just carefully and gradually heat up the unglued edges and stick 'em back on. 
Always kept in a smoke-free home studio, never gigged, never taken out of the house, never abused, always babied. 

Item will be immediately shipped upon clearance of payment.  It'll be properly packed and protected.  I assure tight communication throughout the transaction.
