    Tough...haven't been made in many years. There
    was the Taurus and the Taurus 2. I haven't seen
    any around in a looong time. Might come up on
    Ebay though.

    Might want to check in Effects, or in the For Sale section.

    StudioLogic/Fatar and Roland both make foot pedal controllers that you can use to trigger any synth or sampler via MIDI.

    These are a WHOLE lot more flexible than the old Taurus pedals. With a couple of the right sound modules, you can trigger any sound you want. Bass notes.....hand claps....thunder claps......cannon blasts......

    Thanks Bruce,
    I so don't know about what is needed for midi. I guess I got some homework to do. That seems logical. No wonder the Taurus pedals are obsolete. I do like the idea of a one piece analog unit, though. Bob

    I just found out from an ex-Moog employee that they are planning to re-issue the Taurus. My guess is the will be crazy expensive.

    Big Briar did an email survey last year on price/features for the re-issue. But I have heard nothing about the results.Prolly looking at a Grand.
