I bought it ages ago cos it was dead cheap.
If you’re even remotely into mid to late 70es italian poliziotteschi soudtracks, this is the string synth for you.
It is a big (in size) synth.
When i bought it it looked like this
I opened it up to clean it and realised this wasnt its original colour.
It really was taupe gray before, but the years had the plastic chassis yellowing
I decided to restore it to its original colour (or as close as i could…)
Good for bass and guitar alike
Syd Barrett’s hairy boost.. VERY WARM AND THICK. Perfect counterpart to Syd’s favourite amp settings, basically treble at 10.
Perfunctory build on eyelet board, with external vero for transistor testing, using 2N2613 as per original.
Very surprised by the final tone, i really like it.. Sounds very nice.
I broke out the wem copicat to have a better idea if it nails syd’s tone.
