Vintage Synths on the Local News...

The above link is to a story that the San Francisco ABC affiliate did on our synthesizer collection. They contacted us through Facebook a week ago asking if we'd be interested in them doing a story. I said yes, and they came by and filmed it on Friday.
It's a little embarrassing, but it was fun, and there's some good gear p**n there.
Enjoy!

*EDIT: here's the link to the new story by the local Fox affiliate:

Wow.. awesome!
This isn't just a museum, but a shrine for all that is still good in the world. ;)
Nice to see the talented Tara Busch also making a cameo appearance.

Well done - it's a nice collection and it's great you're able to let the public learn about it and get to experience them first hand.

I'm pretty sure that's her around the 1:38 mark and then again towards the end.
Never met her in person, but from the pics and videos I've seen plus her synth obsession leads me to this conclusion. :)
