Rare Hohner Little Lady String-Orchestra Synthesizer SN 17710

via this auction

You can find a demo of the Hohner Little Lade here.

via the seller:

"Ultra Rare Hohner "Little Lady" - String-Orchestra / Synthesizer / Rhythm-Machine / Keyboard !

This keyboard is very, very hard to find, I think.
Similarly, there is almost no information on the net.

Very, very good technical and optical condition.
Extremely clean - the surface, all the keys, the switches.
The real wood is still beautifully preserved.

Everything is working perfect (here is one exception = read down below under "XXX") -
All sound registers can be mixed or switched as desired.
It has a vibrato and a sustain switch.
For the last lower octave there is a separate bass-sound (additive switchable)
All sections have their own volume control.
All sliders work without scratching !!
All key contacts work as on the first day - no contact problems at all !!

Something about the automatic accompaniment-system -
It can also be operated without the acoustic signals being switched on acoustically.
The bass sequencing will still change with the selected rhythm - this results in quite interesting sequences !
Thanks to the memory function, you only need to tap a bass-key, then it is automatically held (this also works without the automatic accompaniment).
Of course, the respective rhythms can also be switched acoustically.
The keyboard has a built-in loudspeaker (at the bottom) - this works also perfectly (without distortion).
On the back there is a line-out socket for an external amplifier.
And an output for a pedal (pedal not included).

"XXX" - There is, however, one technical error (or I'm doing something wrong):
If one of the rhythms is switched on acoustically, a single slightly higher "bass-sound" (tonally a single "B") sounds automatically.
I can not get it away.
Otherwise everything is absolutely working perfect !!

The Hohner comes with its original service instructions / schematics (also a rarity) !!"
