The original ARP 2600 semi-modular synthesizer became an instant hit and was quickly adopted by lots of renowned musicians including Edgar Winter, Pete Townshend, Herbie Hancock and Jean-Michel Jarre, to name a few. Soon after the first models were released, ARP made a bright blue version of Model 2600 called the “Blue Marvin”, named after ARP CFO Marvin Cohen.
Now meet the Behringer 2600 BLUE MARVIN, a limited edition, ultra-affordable and even more feature-packed homage to the iconic ARP 2600 synthesizer. Compared to the original Behringer 2600, the BLUE MARVIN features a mechanical spring reverb, hand-picked components, uni-colour LEDs on each fader plus a super slick paint job that’ll make your setup pop! Conjure up virtually any sound imaginable with incredible finesse and ease. The pure analog signal path is based on the authentic ARP 2600 circuitry from the 70s with matched transistors and JFETs. Owning a BLUE MARVIN is like having your piece of history enabling you to re-create timeless classics or forge your own musical path.
Great care has been taken in engineering the BLUE MARVIN’s true-to-the-original analog circuitry, semi-modular architecture and triple VCO design, all of which come together to recreate the classic tones evocative of classic electronic music. This highly-focused attention to detail gives the BLUE MARVIN its ultra-flexible sound-shaping capability, which then empowers you to recreate amazing tones – from super-fat bass and tasty leads, all the way to full-on dreamy ambience from the far reaches of your imagination.
