About This Listing

Up for sale is a very rare and unique piece of test-equipment-cum-modular-synth, the Bradley Telecom Model 2A Jitter & Hit Synthesizer. This was made from the late 70's to the early 80's for those working on phone lines, and is basically an analog synth/noise generator that is designed to mimic common problems found in phone lines (noise, clicks, etc.) It has a sine oscillator, a modulation oscillator, various other modulation sources, an envelope that's more or less Attack/Decay with variable time ranges, a noise generator, etc. You can patch it using Banana cables (which i did with success with my Serge system) and features a proper 1/4" input & output.

It's quirky, glitchy & weird. RJd2 is allegedly a fan & user of several of these, and there's some videos of some in action with a quick Googling.

Plan on shipping being expensive: While it's built into its own case, it's very heavy and i don't know how delicate the parts inside are, so i'll be taking it to be packed professionally....i'd expect at least $60-$100 in the lower 48 states. Honestly, i don't know what it's worth, i got it in a trade and it's not really integrating into the setup as much as i'd hoped (even with the Serge to play with) so i'm going to pass it on at $650 or best offer. If you're local to Chicago, come pick it up and get a local discount too.
