Multivox MX-880 Duo Sonic Synthesiser SN 899052
via this auction
"As far i can see these were made in the Same factory in Japan as the Roland SH-2000 and an early example of a clone (to all intensive purposes looks the same and sounds the same apparently) but a few people also say this is the same as the MX 2000 which it isn't, it has a different control panel and a black face colour, it also has its own personality. Anyway, worth doing some research as i've never seen another one of these and cant find any decent information about it online, I gather its 1973 and one of the earliest synths made and Multivox were an American company in the 70s who made a few weird synths.
It sounds amazing, the filter is super rich and all the presets and faders work, including the assignable aftertouch (first aftertouch in synth?) and has a few tweaks on it, however the 2nd Oscillator is very quiet so it could definitely do with a service!!"
