Frank Eventoff Sonica Limited Edition Synthesizer #77
via this auction
"You are bidding on an extremely rare Sonica synthesizer built by Frank Eventoff in 1979. Only 650 of these were ever made. Very few are now known to exist. The body is carved of mahogany with brass plates and has a plaque with the number (#77). It comes with the original custom-sized case. Speaker cloth is torn but the speaker works fine and is all original. Picture shows fading, scratches and a crack on the bottom. Other than cosmetic, everything works fine.
It also features three buttons. Analog “Slider” which is a tremolo type effect, Analog “Tone” which is actually a tonal boost, and “Half-Step” which raises the note an octave. It features a built-in speaker, with an 1/8 inch output to connect to an amplifier or recording device. It runs on one 9-volt battery which is installed by accessing a plate on the backside of the device."
See the Sonica label at the bottom of this post for previous posts, and to get an idea of how often they have come up in the past.
