Product Description

Relisted - this item did not make its reserve price in the auction and so is now available at a fixed price.

Super-rare Elektor Formant modular synthesizer and matching keyboard for sale as part of the Soundgas Nils Frahm Auction.

Read our latest blog about the Nils sale.

Complete with the original manual and build instructions (in German) for all modules - English version is here.

Nils told us he'd used this on many recordings over the years. It can be seen in the photos taken when we visited Funkhaus last year.

These were built from kits around the end of the 1970's and according to Nils this one was built to a high standard. As noted above we will be servicing this for the buyer before it ships. Also we will be trying not to fall in love with it too much.

More Elektor info/history here.
