Blast off! "Telstar" on guitar and effects pedals

The Clavioline was one of the first electronic synths in existence. Built in 1947 by Constant Martin it was featured in the song “Telstar” in 1962. That’s what you’re about to hear, recreated with a guitar, amps, and EHX gear.

You can read more about it on Bill Ruppert’s EHX post but it’s still fun to hear yesterdays high tech recreated with, essentially, today’s retro tech.
