Hi, I was wondering you found your "The Sweeper" pedal, because I have been looking for one of those for a very long time. I am also wondering if you knew where to get one or if your ]s is for sale. Thank you.

Obviously I posted in the other thread… found it new old stock at a local music store. Has long since been sold on ebay.

I have a phaser pedal from that same era, and the newer version of the distortion pedal (looks more like a boss pedal).

I came across an Electra Envelop Model No. 871 and I cannot determine the value of it. The only similar pedals I have found for sale on ebay is the Electra Phasers. One was listed at $350 and another at $289. Can you guys help me out? Thanks!

Here is a link to a youtube demo I made with the pedal.

Look for the Electro Harmonix similar model envelope filter - they made that one for Electra and if you find the correct one it will look exactly the same except for the cosmetic writing on it. See if you can find one that has actually SOLD too. I see people ask $300 for stuff like that but they usually don't sell. But FX are pretty "hot" sellers right now. I haven't seen one of those. It probably isn't very common, at least in with the Electra badge on it.

I got an old EH pedal and it brought pretty good money. If you sell it, you probably should mention the similar EH model as they EH collectors will be interested in it, and they will probably be the one to buy it. There are a lot more of them looking to buy one, and many probably don't realize the Electra is the same thing.

Also, it is a pretty good envelope filter! Good luck.

Thank you for the reply! I contacted the seller of one of the Electra Phasers on ebay. He owns a music store in Texas and has a vast collection of vintage pedals. He said it is very rare indeed and should bring $300-$350 on ebay if I am patient. With his info and yours, I know have a pretty good basis on what this thing is worth. Thank you very much!
