Lovetone designer sells his last 3 cherry-picked Lovetone pedals

Lovetone designer Dan Coggins is auctioning his last 3 cherry-picked Lovetone pedals at VEMIA!

In November he already sold a Ring Stinger, ? Flanger and Wobulator, this time a Meatball, Cheese Source and Doppelganger:

Lovetone Meatball

Lovetone Meatball s/n 1383, circa 2004 – a dynamic/envelope filter that can offer hi pass, lo pass, and band pass filtered sounds - both static or dynamic - and may be blended in with the input/straight signal. Bi-directional sweep modes and an FX Loop post-trigger to retain dynamics and allow e.g. fuzz to be inserted before the filter and selected by the Meatball in one click. It is possible to modify one signal with another using this box. A very useful tool for both stage and studio!

Ex + (i.e. “near mint”) condition. Packaging is VG+ condition with some scribbles and wear. The original manual and setting sheet are both in Ex- condition. Original (blue) colour with original silver silkscreen. Fully tested and working with a 3-month warranty from Dan Coggins / Dinosaural following the Auction close date. A brand new “light jack” will be supplied. Dan: 'This is one that I “cherry-picked” to keep for my own use some 8 years ago. I will include a signed certificate of providence and authenticity.'

Lovetone Cheese Source

Cheese Source s/n 0035 – this effect combines the two smaller “Brown Source” overdrive and “Big Cheese fuzz pedals combined together in one Meatball-sized package.

This is the pedal that Lovetone's Dan Coggins “cherry-picked” to keep for his own use some 11 -12 years ago. He will include a signed certificate of providence and authenticity. The pedal is in Ex condition: some very minor marks only (undetectable via photograph). Packaging is VG+ condition. This one is circa 2000 and is one of the rare early ones with a “red-orange” paint job with a purple silkscreen. Fully tested and working with a 3-month warranty from Dan's new company Dinosaural following the auction close date.

Lovetone Doppelganger

LIt’s a Doppelganger Mk 2 (these have in addition to the early version spec. a direct output for pseudo-stereo effects, a slow LFO rate switch and a square wave option switch for LFO 1). s/n 0496, circa 2000 – VG + (i.e. very good condition owing to a few blemishes –see pics, otherwise it would be in EX condition. Packaging is moderate-good condition with some scribbles and noticeable wear and has no Lovetone stamp or inner carton. I have used bubblewrap to accommodate this. The rubber mat was removed ages ago and lost so I have “made good” by fitting four rubber feet. The original manual is included and is in Ex condition. Fully tested and working with a 3-month warranty from Dinosaural following the Auction close date. A brand new “light jack” will be supplied. The Doppelganger is/was a four-stage optically modulated phaser-vibrato with three footswitches, one for bypass, one to select phase-vib and a third switch to select twin oscillators with independent rates and depths as an alternative to the main LFO. The main LFO may be bi-phased in a figure-8 pattern on the two notch bands for a subtler sweep. The blend of signal is adjustable and there is a resonance control. The sweep of both low and high frequencies is adjustable and there is provision for a pedal to alter rate as well as option to use a “light jack” for optical control of rate (as with the Meatball, this was a retro-fit possibilty so needs plugging in half-way to work!). In bypass it is possible to select hard-wire bypass or carry the signal statically via the phase filter for a “spectral EQ” sound quality – very musical and nice for treating instrument sounds at mixdown in the studio while not necessarily sweeping them. Again, this is one that I “cherry-picked” to keep for my own use some 11+ years ago, it’s a very nice sounding one. I will include a signed certificate of providence and authenticity with it.
