didnt see anything like this on a previous post and i thought maybe you all would like to get a good look at this guitar. The creator and luthier recently passed away..so sad, he was a true visionary. Rolf Spuler of Switzerland. This is the Paradis Avalon guitar. This one is made or pear tree. Only 100 or so of these were ever made. The headless version is the original “early” design. Each saddle is a separate pickup for that individual string, so there are 6 pickups. The guitar has an umbilical cable that plugs into the PloySubBass rack mount unit. This device does several things. It routes each individual string’s output to its own separate output jack, and it prioritizes the LOWEST note being played at the time to a poly sub bass processor, which drops that note by two full octaves. The PSB unit also delivers a stereo output, a mono output, an additional tuner output, but thats not all…. there is also a GK 13 pin outlet, which – in this case – drives an Axon AX100 guitar midi converter, because since all the strings are separate, you can have strings playing on the lowest strings, and a flute or piano on the high strings via a JV2080 or similar synth module. Really cool. The guitar itself is a work of art, yet absolutely functional and very sophisticated. The pointed head is actually 2 LOW frets for the low E string. There is a small thumb actuated button which acts as a ‘spike’ or ‘capo’ for the low E, which effectively makes it an instant Drop D tuning mechanism, the difference being your chord fingering doesnt have to change!

 

Very cool!

That low E extension is actually an idea adapted from bass viol – there’s an extension device made for bass viols that does the same thing with (IIRC) keys similar to those found on a sax or clarinet to stop the string for the low notes. Been awhile since I saw one though….

Roland GR-1 Guitar Synthesizer (incl. A/C Adapter,GK2A Pickup,13 pin Chord)

Roland GR-1 Guitar Synthesizer (incl. A/C Adapter,GK2A Pickup,13 pin Chord) in Musikinstrumente, Pro-Audio Equipment, Synthesizer & Soundmodule

I’m selling one of my five Roland GR-1 Guitar Synths, with the expansion card (200 additional Tones plus the 200 that come with the unit). ) And my programmed sounds installed If you want them. I can bring it back to Factory settings if not). You can install the included GK-2A Pickup on any steel string guitar (Acoustic or Electric). The unit contains Digital Reverb, Delay, Chorus and Flanging. It also has a Four part multitimbral via midi 2000 note internal sequencer.

The Synth comes with an AC adapter, GK-2A Pickup and Synth cable Group 3-4 card and a new internal CR 2032 disk battery. The expansion card alone is not sold anymore and is worth over $100 by itself. Practically all of the GR-1’s on E-Bay don’t have the card. The GK 2A synth pickup is also worth over $100. If you want a second GK-2A Pickup for another guitar, I have them ($125).

The GK-2A can be mounted on the guitar with 2 sided tape, screwed into the guitar surface with spring adapters (included) or mounted on a custom bridge right in front of the regular guitar bridge. My friend and Luthier custom fit the bridges to the guitars and attached them with 2 sided tape. then holes were drilled into the Custom bridge and either Rubber tube spacers (which I prefer) or small springs were used for the GK-2A height adjustments. If you do buy the GR-1. I can help you fine tunes the GK-2A Pickup adjustment.

The price for the Expanded Synth, Group 3/4 Card, A/C adapter, GK2A Pickup, Synth Cable, New internal battery and my Programmed Sounds is $400. If you look on E-Bay, you will see that this is a very fair price, especially with the Expansion Card, GK-2A pickup, new internal battery, custom sounds, etc. I have rotated this unit with my other GR-1’s so it’s in great shape.

Boss 20 G GK Effect – Poly Octave – Oktaver

Boss 20 G GK Effect – Poly Octave – Oktaver in Musikinstrumente, Gitarren & Bässe, Zubehör

Das einzigartige Octaver-Pedal

Dieses Gerät erzeugt eine zusätzliche Oktave unter den gespielten Tönen. Da der GK-Tonabnehmer (Voraussetzung) jede Saite einzeln abnimmt, kann die zusätzliche Oktave einzelnen Saiten zuordnet werden: Z.B. nur den Saiten A und E, so daß mit der Gitarre gleichzeitig Bass gespielt werden kann. Auch das Spielen von oktavierten Akkorden ist erstmals in der Geschichte der Effekte möglich. Das Pedal hat zusätzlich drei Akustikgitarren- und drei E-Gitarren-Simulationen sowie einen heftigen Distortioneffekt für oktavierte superböse Gitarrensounds im Nu-Metal-Stil! Die Tonerkennung funktioniert wie beim Roland VG-88, es gibt daher keinerlei Tracking (Anschlagsverzögerung).

Features

Das weltweit erste polyphone Octave-Pedal für Gitarren mit GK-Pickup

Oktaven lassen sich einzelnen Saiten zuordnen

Eingebaute elektrische und akustische Gitarren-Simulationen plus Distortion Effekt

Weltweit einzigartig: Erlaubt das Spielen von Akkorden bei aktivierter Oktavierung

Stabiles Gehäuse mit zwei Pedalen und einfacher Bedienung über Drehregler

Programmierbare Octave-Bearbeitung

Dank des GK Pickup-Eingangs ist der OC-20G Poly Octave in der Lage, Oktaven für unterschiedliche Saitenkombinationen zu erzeugen (wie beispielsweise 5. und 6. Saite), während andere Saiten unbearbeitet bleiben. So können Sie z.B. eine Gitarre-Bass-Kombination erzeugen – weltweit einmalig!

Gitarren-Simulation und Distortion

Zusätzlich stehen sechs unglaubliche Gitarren-Simulationen zur Verfügung: Drei elektrische und drei akustische. Ausserdem ist es möglich, in Kombination mit der eingebauten Distortion wirklich kreative Effekte wie z.B. einen “New-School” Metal Sound mit einem um eine Oktave nach unten transponierten Bass zu erzeugen.
