DEWTRON Apollo vintage analog modular synth

via this auction

"Maybe it's an Apollo, I'm not sure by the descriptions. It was a DIY project from some ready-made modules of Dewtron at the ver early 70's. It was commonly known as an affordable alternative of the EMS synths as: VCS-3, AKS, and Synthi-A. This one was bought from the first owner, the one who built it in his youth. I'm sorry but I can't even start the process of renewing the instrument due to my duties and the lack of time. The machine needs reparation and I can't tell you much more. There's a huge stack of tech-description of each circuits as oscillators, noise generator, ring modulator, LFO, and specs and many original Dewtron product description booklets come with the machine. At least 100 pages. I can't test it, so take it as is. Wonderful mirror-cap potis and vernier dial knobs like on the EMS synths. Later I can offer you a very nice pin-matrix module."
