Patch 2000

Hello,

I play since 1983 on this 79'guitar and always looking for this "magic Ampeg Box". Is it possible to find an original or subsitute ?

Thanks for answer

Hello;

Do you mean the pedals, or the synthesizer?

Philippe,

As always, good historical and technical info can be found on David Cox's web site:
http://www.hagstrom.org.uk/Patch2000SS.htm

A cool video is out there too, on many sites:

The pedal branded "ampeg patch 2000" shows up on ebay a couple times a year. $100 to $300 depending on condition.

There is no substitute pedal that I know of.

Two basses with the pedal have sold recently also.

To actually use the guitar and pedal as a synthesizer, you'll need an analogue synthesizer.

If you don't have the pedal, then that is the first step, then the 7-pin DIN cable, that you can build yourself, and then the synthesizer.

I am at the synthesizer purchase step myself. But with four other Hagström guitar renovations still in line, it will be many months before I get to the Patch.

That is about it I guess.

Re: Patch 2000

I recently posted an audio file on YouTube that was originally distributed by Ampeg to promote the "Ampeg Patch 2000" guitar synthesizer. the link is:

I am experienced in reparing these systems; if interested, email.
