Re: Space Station Re: the finite nature of things
Wacky on Mr. Sullivan's Space Station casualty rate. I bought one new
when it came out, haven't had any problems, picked up a used one a few
years later, it's also not been a problem. The other guitarist in my band
also made extensive use of one and never had any problems. I've seen
2112's for about $200, and it also includes a way to put a 10-second
looper into a patch--someone on the list has documented this.
The Reverberator seemed to have a bad signal:noise to ratio in my unit,
and the control pedal swept from off to on way too quick. I remember the
ducked reverb setting being the only thing I could find a use for.
I also remember hearing that all the XP series were the same except for a
rom and the external paint/lettering.

Thanks for the 2112 info...probably easier to find than a Space Station.
Regarding SS vs. Reverberator: While it's true that the casing is the
same, the circuit of the Space Station is apparently unstable, at least
according to my pal Mark Sullivan, who owns 4 Space Stations, only two of
Regardless, I still really want a Space Station; I'm just unwilling to pay
"vintage" prices for something that the Daddy's chain was blowing out for
$99.99 only 2 years ago. (I wish I'd known about THAT sale!)
As for the Reverberator, they apparently are inconsistent, because while
you hated yours, mine is marvelous... I a/b'd it with the
great-for-the-price EH Holy Grail, and the EH lost. The 'verb'rator gives
me the Country Joe/Bay Area/Summer'o'Love dark plate thang, plus the
amusing and useful "Infinite" setting.
