Here with a satin Vintage Sunburst finish, this Gibson Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute certainly has the looks, but backs them up with great tone and playability. The engine under the hood here is two Gibson humbuckers, a 490R Alnico II in the neck, and a 498T Alnico V in the bridge. It has a tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, vintage kluson style tuners, and trapezoid fretboard inlays. This Gibson Les Paul Studio '50s Tribute is in Very Good condition, with some minor wear on the back. Comes with a Gibson gig bag. USED
This used Maxon CP101 Compressor Pedal gives you clean, smooth compression with ultra-low noise and incredible transparency. Its 4:1 compression ratio is so subtle that it's sometimes easy to forget the unit is on until - you turn it off, that is. You'll notice note-to-note levels that are smoother and more consistent, chords and arpeggios that are tighter and more focused, and when used with an overdriven amp, sustain that will last for days. Best of all, it lends minimal coloration to your guitar signal and less of the note-attack alterations so common to other compressors.
At the heart of the CP101's circuit sits an HTV #P873 CdS (Cadmium Sulfur) Photocoupler. This light-sensitive component varies resistance based on the input signal to control the amp gain, increasing gain as the input signal weakens. Most other current-production compressors accomplish this task using a VCA (voltage controlled amplifier), but the multiple transistors packed into a VCA inevitably lead to high noise levels, which means lots of "hiss" from your rig. The optical circuit keeps the noise-floor low - so low that you can run the unit after a distortion and still retain near-silent operation.
With its ultra low-noise level, transparent operation, and natural playing response, it's the perfect compressor for players who hate using compressors. This Maxon CP101 Compressor Pedal is in Very Good condition, and comes with its original box. USED
A great value, this used Strymon El Capistan dTape Echo Pedal is in Excellent condition. Faithfully capturing and reproducing the warm saturation desired by so many, the Capistan delivers three different tape machine types: Fixed, Multi, and Single. Each of these has three modes, and ten tweakable parameters, making it a very versatile pedal. Go from the sounds of a distressed, worn out machine in desperate need of new tape, to the clean, studio-quality sounds of a freshly serviced machine.
The front panel's five control knobs double as hidden knobs for further tone shaping. Simply hold the Tap and Bypass switches simultaneously, and the dials become Tape Crinkle, Spring Reverb, Tape Bias, Low-End Contour, and +/- 3dB Cut/Boost controls. It also has stereo outputs, an expression pedal input with selectable control, and built-in tap tempo.
A truly remarkable stompbox, this Strymon El Capistan dTape Echo Pedal comes in its original box with all the extras (see photo).
