|The M4000 has been
designed as an homage to the original MKII mellotron. It has revolving
drums, a chain-linked, failsafe cycling mechanism and the opportunity to
have more sounds at your fingertips.

8 stations, 24 sounds. That's the equivalent of 8 tape frames in one instrument.
Inching facility. In addition to the factory presets, program your own 'start' positions. Advance the tapes by inching to your new preferred position. This can then be programmed in for future use.
Cycling optical failsafe. Just like the MKII, the M4000 is designed to prevent damage to the tapes whilst the instrument cycles to the next station choice. If the keys are pressed during this operation, the unique optical keyboard scanner will shut down the cycling system.
MKII keyboard feel. Anyone who has ever played a MKII has commented on just how good the keyboard feels compared to the M400. The M4000 recaptures that elusive feel, making the keyboard light and very playable.
MKII playing height. Banish that bad posture for good! The M4000 has a much improved playing height allowing for a comfortable standing position.
Positively pressurised cabinet. Foul air can clog up your mellotron and wreck your tapes. The M4000 has the unique FILTRON air cleanser that sucks in filtered air from the base and gently pressurises the cabinet, keeping out stage smoke and other unwanted atmospheres.
Azimuth alignable tape heads. The headblock is the heart of your mellotron and the heads must be accurately set. The M4000 playback heads are mounted in revolving collars so that each one can always be positioned for correct response.
Choose your own tapes. The M4000 is supplied with a standard 24 sound tape set based on Streetly's most popular tape sales over the last 5 years. For an additional amount, we will be happy to execute a tape set of your choice from the extensive Tape Library now available from Streetly.
