Ashby Solutions presents the GIGGER HALFMOON™, a replacement tuned to the needs of the modern gigging tonewheel/clonewheel musician:
 
  • Rugged diecast aluminum case (tougher than Bakelite, or even ABS)
  • Durable epoxy painted black wrinkle finish looks great, lasts
  • Easily repaired and rewired, includes spare knob
  • USA-made Chorale-Off-Tremolo switch for solid feel and 'click'
  • Mountable with screws, or included VHB™ tape or Velcro® fasteners
  • Removable standard TRS cord for transport (attached cord optional)
  • Repairable cables with Neutrik metal ends:  right-angle on Halfmoon side to prevent catching on gear

  • Price includes FREE shipping to US customers

The Faux Moon is made for synths and organs that can't understand what a 'halfmoon switch' is.  It has a regular enclosure and the same knob, but with a center-return (like a Pitch Wheel).  The center position doesn't select anything; you push it left or right to make changes.  From a player's perspective, though, it feels 'natural':  push it to the left to slow the rotors, then slap it right to spool back up with a palm gliss!  It also supports organs that store a Leslie speed setting with each preset -- the switch and speed are always sync'ed -- as well as a few surprising products that can't work with a regular Halfmoon.

Parts/Mounting Kit #1     $5

This kit is for anyone converting our Halfmoon into a permanent installation -- for a church or stadium, for instance.
  • Mounting screws for the case
  • Strain relief for permanent cable attachment
  • Extra knob and case screws

 

 
Parts/Mounting Kit #2     $5

This kit is for use when neither the VHB tape nor Velcro are acceptable options to the player -- if the keyboard's road case is too small to permanently mount the Halfmoon, for example.
  • (4) strips of 3M Dual Lock® to mount the Halfmoon
  • (2) strips of Dual Lock for mounting to a 2nd keyboard, or for later
  • Extra knob
