Michael, a chance to replace your TDL-1:

Its an early silver box version.

Everyone else, why not start your collection with a nice TMD-1:

I recommend the TMD-1 for anyone who wants a good overdrive. If you like the tube screamers get this one, it can even sound exactly like Tokai's own TOD overdrive.

I just swapped a Boss super phaser for an old Metal Driver my friend had. He will be bringing it round this weekend, still in the original box. I was with him on the rainey day way back in the early 80's when he got it from Allen Gordens in Leytonstone(if my memory serves me well)
We tried it with a strat through a marshall head, I sat and played while my freind twiddled the dials. He was after Gary Moores "Corridoors of Power" era sound.

Just a note....
I would like to extend my thanks to LondonBarry for his help in the purchase of a TCO-1 for my pedalboard.
It works great and really complements my other Tokai pedals that I have now taken out of storage.
I hope you got the return letter, Barry

best regards
Peter Mac

A couple of days ago I found a Tokai TDL-1 delay at a local music store. This is a great delay, a lot better than I remembered from the 80's. I traded mine for a digital Yamaha multi effects processor in 1990, what a mistake! The delay is like new and cost less than $50US! Now I only have to find a TFL-1 flanger to complete the collection .

I know Luis, I've actually paid too much for a couple of the Tokai boxes, but to me they were worth it. I have all of them except for the flanger now which I will try to find. I never knew how good the Tokai effects were in the 80's, I only bought the delay (which was very expensive in Sweden back then). I mostly used an Ibanez effect with compressor/tubescreamer and chorus in one box at that time.

Here's my collection:

TDS-1 Distortion (one gray and one black)
TOD-2 Overdrive
TMD-1 Metaldriver
TMD-2 Metaldriver
TDL-1 Delay
TCH-1 Chorus
TPH-1 Phaser
TXC-1 Exciter
TCO-1 Compressor

Javelin, this'll probably drive you mad, but only this morning I received my first and only Tokai FX unit; a second-hand TFL-1 for ?30 GBP! Found it on Loot.com

Needed a few screws tightening and a new battery, but otherwise *very* good condition - haven't had a chance to play through it yet, but I'll let you know what I think!

Hi Michael,
That is quite a good collection, hope you get the "set". There was a TEB-6 on eBay last week which is the first I have seen in 15 years. It was around US$60 - a steal. If you want to know the real price, drop me an email.

You still require a TOD-1 as well as the TFL-1. The TOD-1 has slightly different set up and sound than the TOD-2.


My collection is smaller-
TEB-6 Effects Board
TCO-1 Compresser
TDS-1 Distortion
TOD-1 Overdrive
TFL-1 Flanger
TDL-1 Delay

Good luck, buddy

Hi Peter,
I thought the TOD-1 and 2 were the same except for the different boxes. The Metaldriver is the same inside the box, the pcb in the TMD-2 is actually marked TMD-1! They sound exactly the same so I thought it was the same with the TOD. Of course it's possible that they have different components even if they have the same cirquit board. I've also tried to find the effects board but I don't know if they were sold here in Sweden, I've never seen one.

PS. I haven't forgotten about the MAT neck, I just haven't been able to get back to that music store yet. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! DS.

Mike
