1970's Seamoon Studio Phase Vintage Phaser Effects Pedal (Made in the USA)
Seamoon Ltd. was established in Berkeley in 1973, when Craig Anderton, who later gained fame for his articles and columns in Guitar Player magazine, and for his book Electronic Projects for Musicians, solicited a music store in hopes of selling a pedal he developed.
Sometime in 1975, a young Berkeley musician named Dave Tarnowski started working for Seamoon. He got the job after walking into Skatzenbag Music and impressing owner John Lang with his technical knowledge. “One thing let to another and I started working on some musical effects,” says Tarnowski. “The first musical effect I designed for them used early bucket brigade devices from Reticon. These are earlier than the bucket brigades from National or Panasonic. I actually did some R&D work at Reticon Corporation. I picked up a few of the chips to see if I could make a time modulator.”
Tarnowski designed the Studio Phase, an impressive phase shifter with intensity, shift and speed controls that originally retailed for $129. Other products in Seamoon’s line at this time included a cosmetically updated version of the Funk Machine, and a distortion box called the Controlled Tone Preamp, which featured volume, tone filter and distortion controls. A product called the Two-Track Delay was announced in the summer of 1976, but it was never released to the public.
