Thank you for purchasing our MB33 Retro.
The MB33 Retro is manufactured completely in Germany, including assembly, mounting, casing, print and packaging – which is something, we are particularily proud of.
My thanks go to Hans Thomann and Bernd Siegismund from Musikhaus Thomann and Hari Rupp from the Music Store in Cologne, without whom this project would not have been possible. Thanks also to Artur Grönke and Harry Brandes, both of which have contributed greatly to the development of the MB33.
As with all analog devices the tolerance within the individual components is different from each other. Thus each MB33 is unique and always sounds somewhat different. This is what makes up a large part of the appeal for analogue instruments. Thus creating a much smaller device due to the SMD construction, it still contains all relevant components of the original.
The MB33 Retro was, like his predecessor, developed by Dipl.Ing. Stefan Schmidt.
Stefan Schmidt is one of the best engineers worldwide in this field , emphasized by building his own synthesizer „Schmidt“, a high-end synthesizer, used in all the top studios in the world. As with the original it was despensed of the on-off switch, since the power supply consumes almost 20 times more electricity than the MB33 by itself.
