Yamaha SB-100 Professional System (used by Tony @ King Crimson Live on Friday's performance 4/10/81)

Sorry, this listing has ended.


The vintage Yamaha SB-100 Professional System Board was the master board for 01 series pedals. This specific unit was used on what is arguably King Crimson�Û¡ÌÝå»s most famous performance: the televised live performance on ABC TV�Û¡ÌÝå»s On Fridays show (04-10-81).

About the show, DGMLIVE notes:After the final night of the tour proper in Vancouver, the Crimson crew headed to the studios of ABC to rehearse and record their spot for ABC�Û¡ÌÝå»s flagship comedy vehicle. Touted as a rival to Friday Night Live, ABC�Û¡ÌÝå»s Fridays enjoyed a run of three years.

On the night King Crimson played �Û¡ÌÝÌ�Elephant Talk�Û¡ÌÝ�À_ and �Û¡ÌÝÌ�Thela Hun Ginjeet,�Û¡ÌÝ�À_ they were sandwiched between show regular, comedian Rich Hall and Easy Rider star Peter Fonda. The two numbers make for a pretty interesting not to say edgy contribution on a show whose musical guests were generally a tad more conventional. After this show went out, just five days later the team were in Japan to conclude a truly momentous year in the KC calendar.While it�Û¡ÌÝå»s not too tough to find an SB-100, it is harder to find a complete unit. What�Û¡ÌÝå»s more, this unit ships in a custom flight case with a sticker from Yamaha�Û¡ÌÝå»s Shibuya Shop.There is only one of these in the world that carries this much provenance. It�Û¡ÌÝå»s your chance to own a piece of history.

Tested and works perfectly. Pots need a little cleaning. Board has original tape markings for effects settings onÌ´Ì_Elephant TalkÌ´Ì_and Thela Hun Ginjeet. Comes with custom flight case.

Signed postcard & Official Tony Levin guitar pick included with sale.
