Yamaha GX-1 Coming up for Auction

Via Peter Forrest of Spheremusic. For those of you that do not know who Peter Forrest is, he wrote the excellent "The A-Z of Analogue Synthesizers" and he runs the Vemia Auctions on Spheremusic which once had Brian Eno's gear listed. You can find the A-Z books in the book section on the right of this site.

"The superb ex-Mickie Most Yamaha GX-1 complete with its two tube-amped speakers will be coming up for auction on VEMIA at www.spheremusic.com , November 3-10.
It might seem a bit early to publicise it, with the auction finish two months away - but it's going to have a reserve of around 15000 UK pounds, so people will need time to organise selling the grandmother or yacht or doing the odd hour of overtime.
It's in the UK, and unlike one or two of these rare monsters, it's in very good condition.
I'll know more in a few weeks' time.
Peter F"

  2. I totally won't ever log in to their most hideous web site ever.

    Such garbage coding. It's an offense against everything Web 2.0.

    Hopfully Russian hackers will format the damn thing.

  3. Has enough time passed to admit that the synth trumpet solo in that Led Zeppelin song is really dorky?

  4. I just bought a condo, otherwise I could have easily lived in the GX-1 instead. Easily.
