MATRIXSYNTH: Buchla 259 Complex Oscillators

Buchla 259 Complex Oscillators

via this auction.
Details:
"Once upon a time, Don Buchla had a garage sale. Synth geeks familiar with Don and his work AND lucky enough to be on his call list when crazy things like this happen, got a couple of weeks to buy the NOS stock of 200 and 100 series inventory that he had left. I bought a fairly large pile of it for The Audities Foundation collection. The last modules to get finished where these 2 oscillators. The parts are NOS from Don or new parts currently manufactured to orginal spec. They were assembled by the very talented Mark Verbos in New York this last winter and function beautifully. I have been testing them in our studio system for the last 3 months and found NO issues." via Chris

    I guess this means Dave Kean wants to sue you.

  7. Stop for a moment...
    I didn't know Mellotron still existed...
    And they are selling those crap for 6000$ ?
    I mean... are they REALLY selling those?....

  8. i think it means that David Kean owns mellotron and is making sure people are aware that the company is still under ownership so people don't try to make money off of his company. which i am sure he has a lot of cash invested in.

    its not like Arp or something thats out of business.

  10. Why is the mellotron comment in a thread about Buchla oscillators.

    I wish I could afford the Buchla oscs, they look like fascinating pieces.

  16. why are those buchla oszillator so expensive

    Supply and demand. New old stock Buchla 259s don't come around every day.

    However, given that the auction closed without reaching the reserve price, it would seem the seller overrated the demand.

  17. the seller actually sold them for 50% more then he expected and ended the auction early

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ah ha. Well, that makes more sense then. Like I said, an essentially brand new pair of 259s is a fairly uncomon event.

  19. Looks like the sole bidder lives in Nigeria. Hmmm.....

  20. since chris muir sent the link, did he purchase as well. i'm sure he'll read this so, chris? you've got space for one in your e :)

  21. No way I could find the budget for these. If I was given one, I could certainly find the space, though :-)

    I'd love to be able to outbid Rick on the 191 that's on eBay right now, but that isn't going to happen either, I'm afraid.
