A brief Mu-Tron history lesson..
The Mu-Tron III by Musitronics Corp. first came out in 1972. Since 1996 the Q-Tron developed by Electro Harmonix has been the successor to the legacy which is the Mu-Tron. In early 1995 Mike Beigel was commissioned by Mike Mathews (owner of EHX) to reinvent the sound of Mu-Tron, today EHX still sells that sound as the Q-Tron.
(Q-Tron, Q-Tron+, Micro Q-Tron, Sterio Polyphase, Bi-Filter, Enigma and Riddle)
1996 EHX Q-Tron
1998 EHX Q-Tron+
2000 EHX Mini Q-Tron
