  2. Nice Cat, but the seller seems so ignorant that I won't be buying this one.

  3. But he's correct about it blowing those other synths away. Especially this non-SRM version. The CAT is always so underappreciated because it doesn't say "moog" or "arp" on it.

  4. It doesn't blow the others away.
    Each has its strengths and minuses.
    Quoting just the strengths to make a sale is preying upon the ignorant.

    Try modulating both oscillators on a cat for vibrato effects.
    It's not so easy to turn two knobs at the same time, is it?

    A Minimoog is so different from a Cat that comparing them just makes the seller look dumb or dishonest.

  5. yeah, it's a silly description. but the CAT is still an amazing synth. Right up there with the other top monos.

  6. This Cat does look really clean cosmetically. But replacing pots, cleaning j-wires, wobbly notes, re-tuning osc often? Sounds like alot more work than I care to get into. The Cat is worth it though, if you know what you're doing or have a good synth tech. I have 2 and since I know jack about electronics, I paid to have mine serviced-worth every penny. I agree the seller has completely over-hyped it though. Arrogant and absurd description.

  7. Dissing great synths to make a sale?

    No surprise why the bidding is so slow.

    Cats cost a lot to repair too, but at least they have a mewg filter.

  8. Seems this cat has stopped eating Moogs and Arps for lunch.

  9. It's back with new wording. The seller didn't know about the word spamming policy.
