Powertran Transcendent 2000 Synthesizer w/ Filter Sweep Pedal

via this auction

You rarely see the pedal.

"Legendary 70's synth. The Transcendent 2000 was one of the first commercially available synths to be available to the public. It was sold as a kit and this one was built by myself. It was never used in anger and was put away with other band gear in a store room. Now I am having a clear out and it's up for sale.

There is lots about this synth on the internet. Designed by Tim Orr this type of synth was popular in the late 70's early 80's and in particular was used by Joy Division. These are fairly rare beasts , especially a working one. I have checked the synth out and adjusted some of the key contacts to give better contact / overtravel. This was a weak point on these synths as they are fairly delicate. So here we have a fully working example of this traditional analogue synth. All the keys work , all the controls work. Overall it is in good condition for its' age. It is monophonic ( one note at a time) but has some great sounds /effects. If you are not familiar with this synth please note it must be plugged into a sound system/ amplifier etc. in order to use it , ie. no built in sound system but that's pretty standard for a synth."
