We are delighted to offer this rare and powerful Mk 1 Steiner-Parker Synthacon for sale in full working order.


Demos of our first quick tests below!

Commission sale. Offers invited.

It’s become ever-harder to track down these elusive beasts, especially in Europe. Not only were very few made, those who have them tend not to want to part with them. Going on first appearances, you might ask what is so special about this handbuilt American three oscillator monosynth? On closer inspection, one’s eye is drawn to the rows of colourful switches that control the clever modulation routing that is one of the features that makes this synth so appealing. 

Nyle Steiner’s original Mk1 Synthacon is monophonic, as opposed to the later duophonic Mk2 units: the earlier ones are said to have the edge sonically over. Certainly the reaction to the first demos we put on instagram (see below) has been one of considerable excitement at the noises coming out of this machine.

CONDITION: In good cosmetic condition for its age. There are some signs of age to the face, including small spots of oxidation and minor staining in places. Woodwork has some wear. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.

Commission sale on behalf of a client. If you have gear that you want us to look at selling on your behalf then please look at our Commission & Consignment page for more information and get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Two demos. Both very quick tests. This thing is off the chain… 🙂
