The Yamaha EX-1 Electone PAS System is the home version of the famed GX-1 Synthesizer introduced in the late 1970's, and used by Keith Emerson, Stevie Wonder, etc. When sold new, this piece listed for about $30,000 USD.

The solo keyboard can provide synth sounds similar to those used by Keith Emerson on "Fanfare for the Common Man" and "Peter Gunn".
