1978 EDP WASP SYNTH


via this auction

"Legendary EDP Wasp by Chris Huggett, quirky looking toylike synth but a serious piece of kit, capable of rip roaring synth lines, fat bass...just straight up dirty with so much character. Great for all types of Electronic music.

This was last serviced by James Walker of SRS in 2017 and is studio ready.
The casing is in very good condition with a small hairline fracture on the bottom right otherwise its in superb condition for an almost 40 year old synth! The Wasp has been tested and in good working condition prior to listing.

Comes with the original manual and non-original good quality power adapter.
