Nothing from anyone WOW these must be very RARE then? I was sure out of all these Deadheads someone would have known something about the Musitronics C-200 Volume / Wah Pedal. The one I have is an earlier edition it has a Red on Off rocker switch that lights up. Also has a gain pot on the side of the pedal base. I wish I could get more info on these how many produced, certain settings etc.
I know alot of Keyboard players like these old Musitronics. I see a few on Ebay right now too.
Im not ever selling mine, the boost in my signal I get just from having it in my chain is amazing, it makes my rig sound better. I read that Santana uses the C-200 or used to?
If anyone has any info or insight it would be great!

Jay

I wanted to respond when you first posted, but I don't have any other info than all the stuff that comes up with a Google search.
I've never owned one, but have the Mu-III, Mu-Octave Div, and Mu-Phaser II.
Here is the link to the primary Mu tech that I'm aware of (maybe he can answer your questions):

wow, a between-the-legs-buried-in-confetti shot! Is this photo available in large format? cuz I can't see the dang thing.

I guess in the Santa Barbara(?) shot, Jerry's pedals are moved out of harm's way for the opening band (Commander Cody?)

Here's a clearer (not-in-context) shot of the suspect. Thought this thread could use one:

that photo is in the closing of winterland dvd booklet and is by far the best, clearest shot. the scanned image is ok, but you need to zoom in to catch a glimpse.

here is a blow up of the evidence in question.

Jay, Carlos is also a huge user of the infamous Dumble amps. I didn't know about the C-200. How do you like the Mutron-V? I had one years ago aand could never get it to work. Found an M-III and never looked back.
Cheerio.
