Buchla Electric Music Box


YouTube via wotgorila.
"This is an old Vintage Buchla Electric Music Box was rescued from a dumpster and reconditioned by my friend chuck. As you can see, it takes a while to set up, chances are the previous owners could only get it to make fart noises and chucked it."

Update video re-posted here.

  5. so that's where that other marf went. since i lost my job, i'm sure finding a marf, matrix mixer, etc is in store for me.

    i hope for that fella's sake he gave no indication of where that video might have been shot, god help him if there is a synth nerd the the nsa or cia.

  7. My neighborhood dumpsters only contain old beige computer cases, eggshells, coffee grounds and rotting potato peelings. Next year, I'm planning to move to a better neighborhood where you find TB-303s at garage sales and modulars in dumpsters.

  8. My best find dumpster diving was something called an 'absorbing clamp' that I sold to a company in Switzerland for $5 grand US.

    A PM-S'd up buchla would be so much sweeter.

  12. I found an old Rhodes 88-key electric piano on the street waiting to get picked up by the garbage truck. All it needed was a new fuse. $300. Meh.
