Vintage Digital


Classic Recording Studio Equipment

MXR was founded in Rochester, New York in 1972 by Keith Barr and Terry Sherwood. Starting life as a guitar pedal manufacturer they ventured into studio rack effects in the mid 1970s. The MXR Model 126 Flanger/Doubler is perhaps the most recognised of those rack effects, and you can still find these distinctive looking effects in studios around the world today. During the mid 1980s they did a deal with fellow Rochester natives ART to produce the MXR 01A Digital Reverb, which is clearly a rebranded ART 01A.

The MXR Model 129 Pitch Transposer is a classic piece of audio equipment that was released in the late 1970s. The unit was designed to allow musicians and audio engineers to transpose the pitch of audio signals up or down by a fixed amount, ranging from one octave below to one octave above the original pitch.
The MXR Model 113 Digital Delay is a self-contained audio delay line which utilizes sophisticated technology to achieve a new standard of professional quality. The culmination of an intensive design program, the MXR Model 113 Digital Delay is unparalleled in versatility, ease of operation, and creative application.
For more than 30 years now, both engineers and musicians have relied upon the MXR Model 126 Flanger/Doubler as one of best-sounding bucket-brigade* flanging effects ever made. Through its signature flanging, doubling, and delay effects, the MXR Model 126 Flanger/Doubler imprints a very unique sonic signature on guitars, bass, keys, drums, or just about any source needing depth and movement.
In 1985 it would seem MXR employed the team at ART (Applied Research & Technology) to produce a digital reverb, based on the ART 01A, and it even had ART listed as the manufacturer on the front panel.
