Selling an ex-LucasFilm Lexicon 224XL rackmount unit, w/power supply and six original cards, as a parts unit. Or you can buy a clone LARC and SBC board, fabricate a front panel for it, and you'll be off and running as the owner of one of the best digital reverbs ever made.

The 224XL is a classic vintage reverb released in 1984, and used on hundreds of hits back in the day, and in many LucasFilm movies, since this one was owned by LucasFilm (Star Wars / Indiana Jones / Labyrinth, etc.) as shown by the sticker on the back panel. It still sounds incredible in the modern studio. The 224XL fits so well in the mix, perfect for drums, vocals, anything you throw at it.

Unit not been tested for functionality. All the boards appear to be populated as shown in the photos. I bought this as a spare parts unit some time ago but never got around to using it (I don't own a fully functioning 224XL to test these cards in). It is missing: 1) front panel (can be fabricated and silk-screened) 2) LARC remote and cable (a clone is available and originals show up from time to time) 3) SBC board (clones are available online). 4) May need a new power switch and power LED installed. The OPT slot was for an optional NVS memory board, a clone of which is also available online.

Lexicon 224XL case, DMEM, T&C, ARU, FPC, AIN, & AOUT cards (as shown), integrated power supply (standard US Voltage).

Shipping a vintage item means that things can shift and connections between chips and sockets can shift and it is possible that servicing may be required after arrival. Many chips and components are very rare and difficult to source, and can easily be swapped out with faulty components. As such, I do not accept returns on vintage gear. I have a lot of experience shipping vintage equipment and will make sure it is well protected on its way to your door.

For the past 25 years (when I haven't been making music) I have spent my spare time scouring the Internet and pawnshops around the world collecting, repairing, and maintaining only the most pristine examples of each piece of gear I could find. I have driven (and flown) many miles to find the best examples for my collection. My interests include vintage synthesizers, drum machines, effects, guitars, and basses, with a focus on the "golden era" for each category. Each piece has been meticulously maintained, serviced, and used in my air conditioned, non-smoking, fully functioning recording studio. I have recently decided to downsize and streamline my studio by selling off key pieces of gear, some of which are nearly unobtainable in such pristine, fully-functioning condition. I have been buying and selling gear since the mid-90's, with a 100% feedback rating on the main auction sites. I pride myself on my packaging skills and have received positive feedback for the same.
