Custom Silver Metallic Emu SP1200 Vintage Drum Machine w/ Forat Upgrade
via this auction
via the seller: "For sale here is an Emu Sp1200 with an amazing custom paint job by Bruce Forat. I've owned quite a few custom Forats and I will say this one is my favorite, incredibly amazing job the silver sparkle and lettering and graphics, even down to the custom silver knobs and sliders, it's really an amazing dope look. So classic.
It also has servicing / upgrades making this machine a breeze to use. It's fully functional and in amazing shape. All the buttons and pads trigger perfectly, pots are scratch free and the outputs are clean without hiss.
Cosmetically its near minty shape, the paint job is near perfect, looks really fantastic. The screen is so incredibly bright that it's hard to even show it properly in the pictures, but it looks awesome in person. Check out the pictures below for more details.

- pads refurbished
- sliders refurbished
- all inputs outputs cleaned
- disk drive checked
