Hi guys,
I'm not working at the moment so I set myself a limit of AUS$60.00. By the time I get money exchanged, pay for the money order and postage, etc, it adds another AUS$15.00 to the bid.
In 1985, a TCO-1 sold for AUS$79.00, TMD-1 sold for AUS$95.00 and TOD-1 AUS$85.00. I cannot find the receipts for the rest of the pedals. I remember the Delay was the most expensive at around AUS$110.00.
What I can't figure out is we originally imported a box of each type (40pcs per box) and 2 boxes of TOD-1 and TMD-1. We had 2 only of the TEB-6 Effects board - (not the best to use, very cumbersome)
I have been scouring all the classifieds in Australia for any Tokai products and cannot find any. Instruments or effects. BOSS has such a stranglehold on the effects market here I would have thought Tokai pedals would be easier to come across at decent prices.

Will keep searching....
Peter

Peter, it's the same here in Sweden, for many years you could not find any Tokai's but suddenly a lot of them has surfaced. I bought another Metaldriver yesterday, a black TMD-1 in good condition. Half the price of the TMD-2 I imported from Finland some time ago. I will keep one of them at home and one where we rehearse.

Maybe a good place to start your collection Ned:

TDS-1 Distortion
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=858179056

TXC-1 Exciter
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=858181410

Both in the US. The Exctier is boxed and has a manual with specs for all the Tokai pedals - could be good info for the site.

Thing is, are these exciter pedals any good? What do they actually do?

James, I'll let you know about the exciter when I receive it. I just bought one from Germany, it should be here in a week or so.

Peter,

Theres a Tokai compressor on eBay now. Its in the UK, so shipping may make it expensive, but here it is anyway:

Thanks guys for the info about the TCO-1.

I have made a bid so we'll see what happens there.

Hi barry,
Thanks for the tip.
I sent this guy an email but got a return saying it could not be reached.
If you can organise it for me, I will send you the money via Money order immediately.

regards
Peter

Just got a TMD-1 MetalDriver (black metal box version). Haven't had a chance to really crank it through my amp, but sounds pretty good at low volume. Does seem to suck a bit of high end from your tone when switched off though (I guess its to be expected as its not true-bypass). As to sounding like a Tube Screamer, I've got to admit to never having used one so not sure there (the op-amp is not identical to the JRC4558 that the TS808/9 used - it says IR94558 and SHARP on it, so who knows?).

Michael - are you using yours on a clean amp or using it to push a crunchy amp a bit further?

James,

At the moment I'm using it on the clean channel of my Peavey Classic 30. The tone controls are very efficient so be sure to try out different settings. It's definitely better than the tube screamer I used to have. Using it together with the TCO-1 compressor I get a really singing tone with great sustain. I will experiment using it on the overdrive channel of my amp as well, I haven't had time to do that yet. I will now get rid of my Boss DS-2 and Korg programmable classic overdrive. I find the Tokai TMD, TOD and TDS overdrive/distortions so good I don't need any other distortions any more. They also sound good together with my old Peavey Bandit 65 transistor amp. I mostly use my Tokai strat or Fender USA/Squier Japan frankenstrat, both have SD Little '59 humbuckers in the bridge position and single coils mid/neck.
