Oberheim OB-X Vintage Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer

via this auction

Imagine strapping that around your neck as a keytar. I remember the first time I heard Edgar Winter played the ARP 2600 as a keytar, and thinking that was insane. It wasn't until I saw a video and some pics that I realized it was just the keyboard.

"Here is classic vintage polyphonic synthesizer from the best years of poly synths. If you know the OB series well then you know that the OB-X is the best sounding of all of them thanks to it's largely discrete voice architecture lifted straight out of the SEM-based systems. The filters are supreme and, that bit of looseness in the tuning gives loads of thick and raw character while being edgy with bottom end that is just apocalyptic in size. All 8 voices are present and the unit is fully functional."
