"This synthesizer is currently owned by composer Josh Ralph, who acquired it from the original owner, fellow composer Bob Dorough.

For those who are collectors, curators or artists who hold out for vintage gear that is "time-capsule" clean, this synth is of a condition that you will find none higher.

ACCESSORIES INCLUDED: This item comes as seen in photos, and includes only the following accessories:

External Synthi DK1 keyboard
Dust Cover
8 Pin Keyboard Cable
3 Prong Power Cord
27 Pins
19 Red
4 White

Manual Copy (Does not appear to be original)
PHYSICAL CONDITION: Near Mint - This historical item is in museum quality condition. The fact that it has survived in mint condition all these years is a testament to the two owners who have owned it. The wood has a vibrant finish and is without flaw. The paint and surface areas are clean and appear like-new upon examination. All knobs and pins are intact and in pristine condition. The knobs on the pots are very shiny and reflective, and the patch pins are vibrant in color.

Very Good - The original dust cover has a few light discoloration on it and one tiny hole on one of its top corners.

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent - Fully functional in every parameter. All knobs turn smoothly with no artifacts. The built-in speakers and amp work without a hitch. The joystick is a "joy" to play around with. Moving it around opens up new sonic worlds. All oscilators work as they should. We currently have a short demo video on youtube showing off some of the sound-effect type emanations one can get by just blindly patching and turning knobs.

This instrument is truly a spectacular invention. It is capable of creating new textures and sounds from moment to moment. It feels as though it merges with your mind and soul to create new soundscapes unique to your touch. This unique synthesizer is overall in excellent working condition. Collectors, don't sleep on it!"
