In great condition, these systems have seen very little use.
Three wireless belt-pack systems which I used on two guitars and bass. This pack would be ideal for any gigging band.
I built my own power supply for these things which is included in the sale (see last four pictures). It’s a 1U 19” rack and comprises three independent, ultra-linear 12 volt power supplies; much better quality than the Shure wall-warts (sorry, Shure)
All are on frequency range 854 - 865 MHz.
PRICE: £350.00 plus £15.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance.
Since Palmer brought out the PDI-03 in the late eighties, I’ve always been a massive speaker simulator fan. In fact, I was the first person in the UK who bought the PDI-03.
A speaker simulator connects between your amp and your cab. It’s normally used to deliver a consistent signal for recording while also giving you the option to reduce (attenuate) the energy going to your cab. This means that you can get that power amp crunch at more reasonable sound pressure levels.
Unlike some, the Sequis Motherload is proper! Let me elaborate; it provides a truly inductive load, err… like a speaker, which means that it responds to what’s going on in the amp, as if the amp was actually connected to a speaker. The more common resistive loads, just aren’t as good, I’m afraid. Electronically, they don’t ‘move’ and hence produce a more compressed as opposed to open sound.
It’s in lovely condition and comes in a smart case. The switches and dials on the front make the Motherload very versatile and it can easily simulate any mic’d cab.
The Sequis Motherload is my only 16Ω load and was used between my old amps and my single Marshall 1960a which of course, is 16Ω. Since I’m selling those beautiful amps and the cab, the Sequis Motherload is another very reluctant sale.

I’ve had this tripod and head for almost fifteen years. My only outdoors tripod, it’s been everywhere but has proved the indestructibility of the brand! Made from carbon fibre, it’s very light but seriously tough.
Whenever you see documentaries on TV where the crew are traipsing through the jungle or up some mountain, this is the tripod / head combination that you see them carrying. It’s an industry standard for a very good reason.
Minimum height: 0.78m (measured by me so approximate)
Maximum height: 1.72m (measured by me so approximate)
The E-Image EI-7003 dolly was only used with this tripod indoors.

The famous Roland XP-80; the keyboard version of the JV-1080 used on so many dance hits from the nineties. This keyboard is in great condition with very few signs of wear. Everything works perfectly, say no more.

You’re here ‘cos you know what this is, right? This once industry standard synchroniser is in perfect condition. I bought it years ago from some guy in Australia and it’s been a real workhorse over the years. Reliable and solid. Power supply and cable will accompany this sale.
Take a step back to the nineties. The Roland RSP-550 quickly became a classic effects unit able to deliver all of those time-delay based effects and reverbs which the company had perfected over the decades and became famous for.
The RSP-550 is just awesome, easy to program, easy to back-up, easy to control and sounds brilliant. The inputs and outputs can be switched from -20dBm to +4dBm and with a couple of isolators, can be converted from unbalanced to balanced. I just love these units and quite honestly, they piss all over many plug-ins. Equally suited as part of a guitar or bass rig where they simply excel or in an effects loop either live or in the studio, these machines are gorgeous. On top of that, it’s getting harder to find stuff like this now-a-days. In fact I've just had a quick look on eBay again and no Roland RSP-550s. 🙁 Good thing I'm keeping one for myself!
A convenient little box loaded with features, the Roland KC-60 has a built-in 3-channel mixer. Input 1 can be switched between mic and line levels while inputs 2 and 3 are fixed at line-level. The auxiliary input has a pair of RCA phono sockets making connection of a media player simple. If 40 Watts isn’t enough for you or you need to feed another mixer or recording system, the KC-60 has sub-bass and full-range +4dB outputs.
It’s light, convenient, loud and sounds great (it’s Roland), perfect for gigs and rehearsals.

A fine example of an iconic eighties keyboard controller with only a few scuffs, I’m actually offering two of these here; buy one get one free. Having said that, I’m not sure if the white one actually works. I only bought it for spare parts.
This red Axis is seriously unique. I used to work for Roland in the eighties and I don’t recall a version with reverse coloured keys ever being released.
As already mentioned, this isn’t in perfect condition but it does all work.

If you have a lot of MIDI outboard gear or synthesisers, then you need one of these. Roland developed the A-880 in the late eighties so they’re quite old. I have a few of these ‘cos they’re just so reliable. The well laid out buttons easily allow you to select an input and route it to as many outputs as you like. NOTE: It doesn’t support MIDI merge so you can’t select two inputs and rout them to one output.
I have three of these. One is perfect, one has damage on the rear around the MIDI input sockets and one has a damaged left rack ear. Both units are totally functional but were damaged in transit when I originally bought them off eBay many years ago. I have therefore chosen a price for the damaged units that I feel reflects their condition. The last picture shows the damage on the unit with the damaged rack ear. I didn't think photographing the unit with damage to the chassis around the MIDI inputs sockets was worth it, to be honest.
PRICE: £130.00 plus £15.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance. THIS ONE'S NOW SOLD
DAMAGED UNITS PRICE: £110.00 plus £15.00 p&p to UK mainland. Cost of shipping includes insurance.
The picture below shows the damaged rack ear on one of the units I am selling.
