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.

Inspired By The ARP 2600

The Studio Electronics ToneStar 2600 is a powerful analog mono synthesizer voice module, with its design inspired by the classic ARP 2600. The ARP 2600 was one of the most renowned synthesizer units ever created, used in a wide range of recordings, known for its authentic mimicking of acoustic instruments. The realism and optimal control the ARP 2600 provided, cemented its placed in synthesizer history. The ToneStar 2600 combines the best qualities of ARP, Moog and Oberheim synthesizers to create this modular powerhouse.

Powerful Sound Design Capabilities

At the heart of this Eurorack synth module is an oscillator that spans eight octaves, accompanied by a Sub control, allowing you to dial in an octave below the main setting for added depth. The sub control is ideal for creating basslines and other bass-orientated sounds. One of the most unique features is the integrated White Noise generator, complete with external input patching for optimal flexibility. The LFO boasts an ultra-wide-range, fitted with rate and depth controls for versatile modulation capabilities. With 26 potentiometers and knobs in total, the ToneStar 2600 gives you comprehensive control at every step, providing virtually endless ways to create sounds. This allows you to achieve everything from punchy basslines to cutting-edge leads, industrial effects and more.

Versatile Modulation

The built-in 4-pole (24dB/octave) filter, bases its designed on the ARP 4072, whilst eliminating the 12kHz cutoff flaw. This filter provides further modulation control over your sounds, allowing you to shape and mould the way your tones sound. The module features 21 patch jacks in total, giving you the ability to patch anything connection to another. Its normalled signals patch boasts controls that are arranged in the order of signal flow, designed to improve your workflow. The voltage-controlled ADSR envelope and additional AR envelope provides added expressive capabilities, allowing you to change the shape of your tones, providing extensive modulation options. The synths design exhibits the same 2600-style sustain sink behaviour, keeping in tune with the original design.

Design & Layout

The ergonomic layout provides quick and easy access to all parameters, with a wide range of patch points located along the bottom of the faceplate. The design is split into three main sections: VCO, VCF and ADSR envelopes. The sections are clearly labelled with controls for everything you may need to achieve the sound you desire. The large, precision potentiometers provide optimal control over each of its parameters, with each control clearly labelled for quick and easy access. The 21 patch points include everything from waveform connections to modulation inputs, gate inputs, ADSR out, VCA CV and more. The sleek and stylish design requires 36HP of space, ideal as the main keystone with your modular setup.
