Vintage Chroma Polaris Synthesizer SN 300730 For Sale From Lead Designer


via this auction

"This synth was manufactured in the early 1980s by Fender. I was the lead designer, and over the years I've collected a few of them. This is a six-voice synth with a 61-key velocity sensitive keyboard. It has selective pitch bend, which lets you bend some notes in a chord while keeping others fixed. It has a MIDI interface, and includes a built-in sequencer. And it has a nice fat sound.

This one shows some routine cosmetic wear on the outside. Much of this could be touched up quite effectively with a black magic marker, although the pictures show it as-is. Both membrane switch panels have been replaced with brand new ones, the CPU was replaced with the faster one used in the later production runs, and the RAM was expanded to the maximum 64K for maximum sequence storage space. All calibrations and adjustments have been performed. Everything works."
