Maplin ETI 4600 Synth

via this auction

Some info via the seller: "Ok...., as far as i can tell its a finished project all parts there on the circuit boards with just a few wires to connect, keyboard and power supply socket which i have.
I had an external power supply made up by a professional who knows his synths, (ex BBC tech)
he has been inside these beasts before.
He thinks the power supply may have been taken out and an external one used as inside is a reverb tank that could have been picking up interference from the original, Makes sense.

The keyboard itself looks as if its never been played as its in excellent condition and is still in need of fixing down, about 4 screws i think but all the wood inside it fixes to is fitted.

This will definitely need servicing and some of the pots/controls are a bit stiff so some spray could well sort them out, also as you can probably tell if you know these synths is that its missing all its coloured caps, i personally think it looks far better like this and not like a toy but again these can be easily sourced if you wanted it totally original.
It has 6 of the original pins for the matrix board and i will supply info as to where to get more if you want them, i have collected all i could from the web about this synth which includes the original building and setting instructions plus other stuff."
