Roxy Music's Brian Eno's Custom Dual EMS SYNTHI


A few pics of Brian Eno's custom dual EMS SYNTHI via MarkEC on the AH mailing list. You can see the custom SYNTHI in the video posted here.

Peter Forrest, author of The A-Z of Analogue Synthesizers chimed in with the following:

"I asked Robin Wood and got this reply, which he said was OK to relay.

'Nice to see a few photos of this beast, usually only seen in OGWT video footage (or should that be TOTP?)..

This was a special built for Roxy by Gerry and Brian Rodgers, quite possibly after they had split from EMS when they were trading as RSE (Rogers Studio Equipment).

According to Gerry there were problems with its reliability. Also Gerry says Eno was 'sacked' by Roxy partly because of the instrument, so it's 'working' life was short. Information not easily substantiated..'"
