4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Dreadbox Abyss 4 Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer

Details
The Dreadbox Abyss 4 Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer features five global modes with four individual analog voices, based on the same oscillators used across the Dreadbox range. The four voices are comprised from one oscillator and one sub oscillator per voice, with a rotary knob that allows you to blend between waveforms for added versatility. The Dreadbox Abyss VCO section includes detuning and vibrato modulation, as well as a polyphonic glide slider to smooth envelope transitions between notes. The VCF (voltage controlled filter) is based on the renowned Dreadbox Murmux Synthesizer, including a 24 dB/Oct,and a four pole resonating low pass filter. There are also three built-in effect stages as well as independent LFO's that can be assigned to these effects. With its wide-range of in-depth control, the Dreadbox Abyss is ideal for creating a wide range of sounds from cutting-ending leads, to lo-fi basslines and more.

4-Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer

The Dreadbox Abyss 4 Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer features all-discrete analog component for capturing the warmth and grit associated with analog circuitry. The four individual voices are comprised of one oscillator and one sub oscillator per voice for ultimate control. The four global play modes include Multi for one voice per MIDI channel, Unison and all voice together. The polyphonic design allows you to play multiple notes together, allowing you to play chords and more. The built-in ‘Chord Mode’ enables you to hit a root key and have it play a chord of the four voices with a selectable rotary switch. A clever rotary knob allows you to blend between waveforms for added versatility when it comes to creating sounds.

VCO Section & Voltage Controlled Filter

The Dreadbox Abyss features a VCO section which includes detuning and vibrato modulation controls, as well as a polyphonic glide slider that will add a smooth envelope transition between notes. A modulator on the VCO also includes independent rate and depth controls for creating lo-fi sounds and more. The Voltage Controlled Filter (VCF) is borrowed from the classic Dreadbox Murmux Synthesizer featuring a 24 dB/Octave, 4 pole resonating low pass filter. The filter can also be used as a digital ADSR envelope generator, allowing you to further shape the sound of the filter. Also featured is a dedicated Voltage Controlled Amplifier with digital ADSR envelope generator, allowing you to create snappy sounds such as percussion and more. In addition, this unit also includes an OTA drive circuit knob for suturing the amplifier.

Built-In Effects

The Dreadbox Abyss also includes three dedicated effects stages. Two independent LFOs can be assigned to any of the time-based effects with both independent rate and 4 x LFO waveforms to choose from. The Abyss features a 1024 BBD reflect effect, designed for chorus/phaser and flanger type effects, ideal for adding a new dynamic to your sounds. A lo-fi delay effects is also included, borrowed from the Dreadbox Erebus synthesizer as well as a four-stage analog phase shifter. The OTA Drive circuity and four modulation wheel choices provide added modulation for changing depth, rate and more. For added convenience, the effects can all be controlled via CV, perfect for using the Abyss for music production.

Design & Connectivity

The compact yet robust design of the Dreadbox Abyss Synthesizer makes it ideal for live and studio use. Its aluminium case and highly durable design makes it a synthesizer that is built to stand the test of time. With its all-discrete analog design and white noise generator, the Dreadbox Abyss gives you an unprecedented amount of control when it comes to creating your own sounds. The rear of the Abyss features MIDI through and In connections as well as CV inputs for Phaser, Delay, Reflect and Cutoff for optimal control. Also included are Main Out, Dry Out and Signal In inputs. The OTA Drive circuity and four modulation wheel choices provide added modulation for changing depth, rate and more.
