PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Superb string/bass synth for sale serviced and calibrated by our synth tech. A rare and stunning-sounding synth that just oozes seventies cosmic goodness.

Pre-order listing – this is in stock but awaiting final calibration with out tech before shipping – shipping from 2nd September.

One of the most flexible and fine sounding analogue string/bass synths ever made with particularly lush sounding strings – the release is lovely.

The synth section has a that superb squelchy Roland filter – great bass sounds.

Quadruple BBD modulation effects – stereo chorus, ensemble and flanger modes – audio input allows you to use the modulation on external sources.

Cosmetic condition is excellent with minor scuffs and scrapes to the face. There is a noticeable chunk missing in the pitch bend panel as shown in the photos. The metal sections of the synth are showing signs of oxidation, especially towards the back of the unit. Please see detailed photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

It is a 100v Japanese model and will run fine on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use.

A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU.

We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.
