Univox Jazzman JM115 Vintage Keyboard by Crumar

via this auction

"Here is a super hip and rare electric piano up for your consideration. The polyphonic 61 key Univox Jazzman JR115 keyboard was made by Crumar in Italy and was introduced in 1974. It was only produced for a few years, so this keyboard is definitely mid-70's. The two low octaves have their own level control which is helpful for blending these octaves with the upper three. While this is not the exact same model of Univox that Dr. John played on his 1973 smash hit "Right Place, Wrong Time," this Jazzman provides the same dirty harpsichord sound used on the song's intro. Every key on this 5 octave keyboard produces a sound, aside from the low F. The two low F#s only produce a kick drum sound, and the high E does not seem to project the same sounds that the neighboring keys do. The keyboard is in good shape, although is does show some wear. One of the hinges for the lid is missing a screw as well. Overall, it is an easy to use vintage keyboard that allows you to tweak the tones just enough to help you dial in sounds. This could be ideal for the home recorder or studio that is looking for a unique vintage key sound. There is a Wiki page for Crumar, if you would like to read up on the company's history."
