Vintage Rhodes Chroma Analog Synthesizer w/ Road Case+

via this auction

Cool Chroma Paramater Chart below.

"Rhodes Chroma Vintage Poly Analog- 16 voice. 1982
Wooden weighted keys, 64 key range (E1-G6)
True audiophile quality, is basically a polyphonic version of an ARP-2600
(ARP was the original designer) Comes with the original factory patches.

The memory board was replaced by a modified board that has MIDI and CC functions and multiple banks. (see photo) You no longer need to disassemble the unit to replace the AA battery.
The power-supply was replaced by a much more efficient and reliable unit, thats smaller and lighter.( See photo)

A sustain pedal and variable pedal is included with the sale.

This unit has typical wear but nothing too rash, after all, its 35-years old, and is fragile by nature. I don't recommend live gigging.

Custom made facsimile page made on heavy stock ( included) that is very useful.(see photo)
The unit comes in its original ATA padded flight case, which weighs nearly as much as the Chroma itself. The gross shipping weight is 125 pounds.

This unit was recently serviced by the same person who created the modifications."
