ray the amazing delay

philips EL6910 serial #507 1960. the tall and handsome ray the delay. 216kg. ray gets played as a tight and twisted space delay maker. he makes extreme excited and churning close up … and up to … longer rattleee delay timings. the regen mixer chassis has momentary regen mute and ‘preset full on’ button switches that are large and springy and playable. the 4 head amps have indivdual gain controls. they can be quite clean and also very very dirty. heres a 3 meg mp3 of ray churing and clacking into a rythym track. and heres another mp3 of that rythym track with one more completely ray-ed up sound. (thanks for that beaut sound dirac).

if you want to hear what hes like on a sound of yours … send me that thing. i’ll ray it up and blip that rayed thing right back.

he was made in zurich by exiled valve rocket scientists out of old valve rocket parts. those crazy guys! everything about how ray is designed and built is mental expensive over the top military like. cast iron with extra steel. 28 special quality tubes. 8 split layered class A signal transformers. and a 600 rpm precision bearing power turbine disk system recording/playing back across a paper thin air gap. nope. the v.s.t plug in does not exist.
