Mk II Violins

The most famous Mellotron sound ever in the history of Mellotrons. Think 'Nights In White Satin'. Think about That Sound you always dreamed of playing whilst dressed in a Wakeman Cape made from your mother's bath towels. Think monolithic. Think massive. Think huger than Huge Jock McHuge himself. Think about three middle aged women scratching their instruments in one of Harry Chamberlin's bedrooms in 1952.

Arguably the most famous Mellotron sound of all time - progressive rock might never have even happened without it being available (a collective guilt that the entire Bradley family must learn to live with for the rest of their lives) - its users are simply too numerous to mention.

No Mellotron sound collection is complete without it, and no Mellotronist is worthy of the name if he or she cannot play the intro to Starless on it. And yes, you can hear the bumping of a violinist's chair on two of the notes - you just have to find out which one.
