The “Master Blaster” sound effects module (Only £33.75)

The Master Blaster is a compact all-in-one amplifier and speaker combo (0mm in diameter by 60mm high,) making it small enough to fit into an OO railway building let alone a G Scale/16mm gauge railway building, model boat or tank, or even under the stairs in your doll’s house.

The unit has an on-board rechargeable lithium battery, which gives you around 3 hours of use from one charge, and takes around an hour and a half to recharge. The unit is recharged via the included USB lead, which fits any computer. So when your computer is on, simply plug the unit in to a spare USB socket and it will cost you NOTHING to recharge. You can buy a charging unit if you wish.

Modelsounds have created a library of looped sound effects, of broadcast quality, and when you buy your Master Blaster we will include one of these sound files, and a MicroSD card for free! All you have to do is to take the unit out of the box, turn it on, hit the “repeat” button (so the sound file loops) and just press play. It’s as easy as that!

You can order additional sound files for only £9.99 each, supplied on similar Micro SD cards and swap your sounds around to suit your requirements. You could go from the sound of a busy terminus station, to a country park, a busy town street, a beach, to an engineering workshop - to name but a few of the twenty different sound files currently available.

Of course, when you buy two or three units, these could be placed around your railway for even greater dynamic sound effects, with a different sound file played on each one!

P&P £4.50 for the sould unit.
