I should get a better picture of the graphic, it is cool. This was one of the last of these pedals that Morley built, and I think the design was originally a Tel-Ray. This one I have was probably made around 1976-77. Oh, it'll self-oscillate all right. Massive pounding oscillation. I have to be careful with the expression pedal on that effect because of it. > If you have audio from that performance, I'd love to hear it. > > Daryl Shawn > www.swanwelder.com No, I'm afraid I don't. I do have a couple of proof of concept looping pieces I did the week before that show with the same gear. http://www.subscapeannex.com/other/contact_samples.mp3 (mp3, 8 2/3 min.) contact mic, Buick transmission parts, the rest of the rig in the picture and http://www.subscapeannex.com/other/contact_samples_two.mp3 (mp3, 5.5 min.) Contact mic, Buick transmission parts, Pentium III heat sink, electric toothbrush (I wanted a drone I could morph into a bassline). Oh, and one 3-second sample of another item that isn't from any of the above, about a minute before the end. Sorry about that. I still have the heatsinks in question, too. best, Steve B Subscape Annex http://www.subscapeannex.com/ >> The Morley echo thing is a Morley EVO-1 "oilcan" electrostatic delay >pedal. >> Five pounds, and with a built-in carrying handle.
