Melos EM-110 Echo Chamber Tape Delay

The MELOS range of Analogue Echo Chambers were very popular in the 1980's used by various Stations. The Melos range were initially Analogue Cassette Tape units, to be later updated with Analogue BBD electronics. Melos made various Echo Chambers in their product range with the Melos EM-110 being a popular unit used on CB.

The MELOS Echo Chamber uses tapes to create echos - there is only one tape head and the tape is a long loop inside a cassette rather like the old BETAMAX video tapes - the point being that the tape rotates quite fast and if there was only a small loop the tape would soon wear out.

The unit is solid construction with a carry handle,textured black finish and anodised facia. There are two inputs and two outputs for low and high impedance respectively and 4 controls for input level,balance between signal and echo,the number of repeats and the time delay between echoes. 

A footswitch control hidden in the rear allows bypassing - and is also where the fuse and cassette are stored and the mains cable should you wish to move it around,so it is not bad for gigging.

Gadget Labs Wave/8:24 PCI Soundcard Prof 24-Bit Digital Recording

Full Description & review:
Official Site:

The Wave/824 is a professional 24-bit interface with 8 inputs and 8 outputs of digital audio with an integrated MIDI port. Priced at under $500*, the Wave/824 sets a new benchmark for value in 24-bit multi-channel recording technology.
The Wave/824 is a complete system that includes PCI card, rack-mount patch box, and basic recording software. "Since the Wave/824 features are modeled after popular 8-track recorders, it's very easy to hook-up to other studio gear and start recording", said Rob Ranck, company founder. "It includes active-balanced audio connections that connect to nearly any analog equipment including mixers, preamps, amplifiers and monitors. It's the central hub of a digital desktop studio based on a Windows PC or Mac. Users can also expand to 16 or 24 analog channels by installing multiple Wave/824 interfaces."

Jolana Tajfun (Typhoon) Bass, 1964

Jolana Tajfun (Typhoon) and Tajfun II came out in 1964. Jolana started making basses in the beginning of the 60's. The first Jolana bass models were Basso IV and it's sixstring version Pedro. Tajfun was basically the same instrument with some upgrades. The body has a deeper cutout for easier upper fret access, the controls were changed from volume, tone and rotating switch to sort of the mid' 60 Jolana scheme with individual on/off switches for each pickup and a master volume - see 1963 Futurama III with similar arrangement.

Histrory & Info: &

The Tambura reproduces the sound of a conventional tanpura but, does it all through electronics. There are many different tuning capabilities ie; pitch, tone, key, tempo etc...

Jolana Jantar Bass

Jantar bass were made at Horovice in the end of 80's. They were the last "pair" in Jolana history, and since then there were no matching guitar-bass couples with similar body outline. 

The bass has a bolt-on neck; body is made out off beach-blocks (glued together). It has the same pu's as used on the D-Bass and the RK-Bass, with three pots: a volume for each pu and a common tone and huge transparent (2 cm height) knobs. Both pu's can be selected separately or together by a toggle switch.

The finish is three color sunburst, neck & head are painted too. Tuners seem to be trustfull. No quotes on playabillity (I'm not a bass player), but after testing it it seems to be ok: enough output and feels good in my hands. The bottom of the body seems to be borrowed from Alembic designs - or a leftover cut-out from a Gibson open book headstock. The bass bears a 1057 serial number on the neck. As far as we know, Jolana serials say nothing about production dates, these are codes that relate to necks only.
