    Anyone else use an Ampeg Scrambler original/clone?

    I doubt anyone has an original.. there were only 250 or so made. If you own or have used a clone, what are your thoughts?

    :D

    I can do clips later...

    I hesitate because I don't know if I should.. :scowl:

    Minds will be blown and I don't want to be responsible.

    Builder for FUZZROCIOUS PEDALS
    Jimmy Rocket built one and sold it a couple of months ago.
     
  8. I had a RI and a clone too - pretty cool pedals, and work great on bass once you set the wet/dry balance sufficiently, but unortunately the lack of an actual master volume means that if you find a tone you really like, it might not have enough volume to represent itself in a band mix.

    heres a clip i did ages ago of my Paisly Tubby Quasar scrambler clone:

    and a very old clip of my Scrambler:

    On a side note: I've currently got the Ampeg Sub-Blaster Octaver - and it is one of the best octaver's ive ever played and will actually blast subs.

    AWESOME! will listen at home tonight.
    Good to know that there are other options for getting these!
    The pINK eLEPHANT has a master volume so I think you should check it out.
    PLENTY loud enough for a band setting.
    Not as loud as a BAM but LOUD.


    OH MAN, i know.
    I never NEVER should have sold mine.
    I still regret that. I have the Octron 2 now and its suboctave, while good.. is NO sub-blaster.

    I had an original but left it at a guitarist's house back in the 70's. :( I've heard there were actually something like 3000 of them made and an original is now worth something like $1000.
     
  12. Yeah the originals go for megabucks, but even analogman says that the reissues are just as good, if not better than the originals. shame that the RI's are also rare now, I should have kept mine, but the sub-blaster wont be going anywhere any time soon - although with my OC2 and POGII it does have some pretty stiff competition.

    Ya. IIRC they said they said reissues are actually thicker and fatter. Thats the funny thing about reissues. They either suck, or are at least as good, if not better, than the original, and either way, it never drives down the price of the originals, and people still act like they're so much better. I listened to a demo comparing the original A/DA Flanger to the reissue, and the reissue is better IMO. It's thicker and fatter, and less subtle, which I personally like. I also prefer block Phase 90's to script Phase 90s.

    Speaking of which, can anyone do a bass demo of an A/DA Flanger or Final Phase? I'd be fine with either an original or a reissue.

    GODDAM IT YOSI! WHY DID I ASK FOR CLIPS!?!?!?!? I'M GASSING HARD FOR THAT QUASAR AND WITH YOUR ECONOMY THE WAY IT IS RIGHT NOW, THEY COST LESS THAN $120!!!! I'M TRYING SAVE UP MY MONEY AND NOT SPEND SO MUCH ON GEAR!!!! :mad::mad::mad:

    Anyway, good clips. Thanks man! I was wondering what a Scrambler sounded like on bass. :)
