About This Listing

Schulte Compact Phasing 'A' in excellent working order and good cosmetic condition.

Made in Germany in the early 70s by Gerd Schulte Audio, these stereo analogue phasers found favour with some of the most iconic artists of the seventies, including Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, JM Jarre, and Rainbow's John Lord and Ritchie Blackmore. Its use by many of the early seventies' most influential German groups has lead to it becoming known as the 'Krautrock Phaser'.

It took years of hunting to find one of these for our studio - not many were made, and they don't come up for sale very often as people tend to hang on to them. I'll certainly not sell mine in a hurry - the thick filter-sweep style stereo phasing is unlike any other phaser we've had - utterly addictive and inspiring to play through - a mix essential for me. 

 Though it's capable of some very subtle and lush effects, it's when you really crank it up that things get interesting: it has a sound (and a life) all of its own and at extreme settings is almost filter-like. It's not the most intuitive phaser to use when you first get started - the controls interact in unusual ways - but it rewards perseverance with some amazing sounds. 

Output is via a stereo jack, the original footswitch is missing, but we have a custom dual footswitch available for purchase separately (not included in the sale - shown in the photos).

It's a UK/EU 240v model, but can be jumpered internally to operate at 110v - otherwise a step-up transformer can be used.
