The J.C. Deagan Electravibe, Model 515, is an amplified case vibra-harp/vibraphone with a three-octave F-F range. This extremely rare instrument was produced by Deagan from 1970 to 1982. This vibraphone is the perfect instrument for a gigging player, as the the instrument is easily disassembled and the legs and pedal system compactly store in the case (under the lid), which carries quite easily. It is also perfect for a studio musician or any musician who is looking to experiment with vibraphone sounds, as the piezo pickups on each individual bar are routed to a preamp that then sends out the signal, which can be run through effects pedals/gear and played through an amp or run directly into a mixing board. The output jack is 1/4", like that on an electric guitar.
This vintage Deagan Electravibe is in excellent functional condition and good cosmetic condition. It has a bit of scratching here and there. The electronic pickups, effects section, and preamp are in perfect working condition. This Electravibe has a superb sound. The damper system within the case case is in excellent functional condition as well. It is tuned A=440. It comes with the original power cable.
