1974 Conn Electric Band SN 008857

via this auction

"Very rare and works perfectly. This keyboard is in great vintage condition and ALL aspects function as designed. This is known for its striking appearance and unusual features. Among the 14 instrument names include “hill band”, “blast off” and “space junk” . Press the “adjustables on” button to activate the 7 ANALOG CONTROLS! The pitch selector has “high, normal, low, deep AND sub”! Six rhythms are available including “teen beat” and a tempo speed control. Separate left hand selects and volume control. A three stage SPRING REVERB adds to the (already significant) bad-assery of this instrument. To me it looks like something Brian Eno would’ve played in his Roxy Music days!"
