Crumar / Steiner Parker EVI Electronic Valve Instrument Synthesizer
via this auction
"Jazz licks never sounded better than humming through this bad boy, the Crumar EVI, originally designed by Nyle Steiner of Steiner Parker fame and rebranded by Crumar. The EVI is a monophonic analog synthesizer controlled by breath, and styled after a trumpet.
Sun Ra Arkestra vet Marshall Allen famously rocks one if you've had the great pleasure to see him perform.
Apart from rusty, busted latches, this unit is sublime, with all functions working properly. It sounds huge, especially on the lower end of the dial where crazy low frequency bass tones really move some air.
2 oscillators, 3 waveshapes ( Sawtooth, Square, Rectangular ) selectable and doubled.
Volume,Breath Level, Resonance, S.E.D. ( Spectral Energy Distribution ),Tune controls
4 Switches for Wave select and Touch Modulation(ON/OFF), and Signal Output.
Breath Controller has four playing keys and unique octave shift roller (8 octave)
and 3 knob( Tune,Scale,Portamento), 3 adjustment (TM sens,Breath zero, sens)"
