    Retrospec squeeze box for sale $600, Sounds amazing. Best bass compressor I've tried. Some trades considered. I'm located in Boston if you want to come try it out.

    I've never tried using mine for anything other than bass but I bet they would be cool to use with guitar, vocals or drums especially if you wanted to do something kind of crazy and squash the signal to oblivion.



    Earwaxsculptor,
    I once herd it's not braggin' if it's true:bag:

    I'm interested if you still have it.
    How old is it? I ask 'cause they're making them again.

    Where are they selling them?
    How much are they asking for them?
    Why wasn't I told of this?

    wow! Didn't know they are making them again. Heard a rumor for years but didn't/don't know if anything has materialized.
    This one I'm selling is an original, older one.
    Please let us know any info/ links of a reissue?
    Thanks!

    Found them by doing a web search. There's at least two audio retailers who are repping them now and one got back to me via e-mail this morning (Can't remember which one is which since he returned my e-mail without his firm name). $495.00 retail.

    Believe me, us Retrospec fans have done plenty of web searches. The few web stores that list them appear to be out of date, so I'd still like a link.

    Just ordered one from Joel:

    joel@ecstaticelectric.com

    They're out of parts right now but should have them
    in a few weeks. I can wait. They do carry the Juicebox too.

    Hey Vox did you get my pm?
    I know the trades are long shots but I had to ask.:ninja:

    Seriously that guy Joel is about to have a full inbox.
    All the internet research I have done led me to out of date websites that were from '97 when these were being made.

    Joel's one of two guys who are in touch with Ken the original designer/manufacturer and got him back into making them. I'd like to pick up another if the price is right.

    Yep, sent an email to him, didn't bounce back but I think this guy is going to be very surprised next time he opens his inbox.

    Got a reply this morning, looks like it is in the tentative stage and he didn't directly answer my questions about price, deposit, or a waiting list, but seems they are planning it for real...

    Thanks for the email.

    Squeezeboxes will be ready later in the year...probably within a few months. I will send you an email when we will know the defintiive ship date.

    Thanks....

    Joel told me it may be possible to have some done within a month or so. All depends on the parts.

    Is Retrospec still in business? I have a Squeeze Box I bought new 10 years ago at Maken Music which has never worked. The entire box is hideously microphonic, it goes into an oscillating loud buzz, and there is no effect. For ten years I have taken it to every top tech in Chicago, and no one can find anything wrong with it, saying it is "just a very bad design." That does not match the reputation of this device. I need to find someone to repair it, or the company to take it back.
