Streetly Electronics Mellotron Tape Library


The sound of a solo trombone (see the GC3 Brass entry if you need more than one trombone at once) as heard on Manfred Mann's 'Ha Ha Said The Clown' and on the tail end of the Beatle's 'The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill'.

Of course, you lose the 'slide' effect on the Mellotron, but judicious and skilful use of the pitch control has been used before in order to do a fair impression. Rumours that given enough time a Mellotron will do this anyway are unfounded.
