hey folks, just thought i'd share this-at the request of someone who helped me ID this piece, i threw some photos up of this guy:

description is in there, suffice to say it is an early synth that was apparently used for testing telephones. its a fun toy, much more useful as a processor than a synth, but still a trip using its own tone generator as well.

I have had a chance to buy TWO of these at separate times on eBay. Both times, I had doubts at the last minute, and didn't bid. Since then I have been looking for them every time I think of it.

One I could have bid on started at $99, and one was at $69. As I remember, they didn't go for much beyond those prices.
There used to be someone who had one for sale in an eBay shop that had his marked for $199 if I remember correctly. Those prices were all back in about 2004 or so, though... when a Minimoog was still about $1600, an Odyssey was about $750, and you could get an SH-1000, Delta, MG-1, CS-15, etc. for about $200.

A Minimoog was $1600? Wow, I thought they were low in price in the mid-late 90s. The Odyssey seems about the same in price though. I saw a MKII on ebay with the Moog copy filters for about that price. It was less than a year ago.
