Meant to be performed with the feet, this monophonic bass synthesizer frees up a user’s hands to play another instrument simultaneously—a valuable asset during live performance. Taurus pedals were used extensively by many progressive rock groups of the late 1970s and early 1980s, including Genesis and Rush, who sought a heavy and lush sound. Though the instrument was commercially successful in its heyday, it was never manufactured in large numbers and remains a rarity.
