Crumar italian synths | QUALITY?

Post by Nipo » Sat Apr 30, 2022 4:34 pm

Hey! I'm looking to buy a new Synthesizer, I've looked at a couple of Crumar synths, and they seem to sound pretty good in my opinion.

I'm just wondering, are they any good quality? Since they aren't made in Japan.
I've been mostly looking at models like the bit99 and the bit01.

Kind regards,

Not well made, plus they’re vintage. You will definitely need to budget for repairs.

They sound great but honestly you’re better off with something more modern especially for the money they go for. I’d be looking at any of the Sequential synths. The DSI Mopho x4 kicks a Bit One’s a*s. I never figured out how to get it to do the wierd random phase cancellation the Bit oscillators do, but that was not always a useful effect. It can definitely do the spiky bass thing and it’s way better at pads.
