Behringer Buys Tears for Fears Synths for R&D - A Peek at What's To Come?

Some pics and notes Behringer shared on what they picked up from the recent Tears For Fears auction. Note the Eventide H3000.

"Day 2 of our amazing treasure hunt story. Tom and Jordan just picked up some massive and rusty flight cases. What do you think is inside?"

"Oh and one more thing :-)
We also acquired one of most sought after and rare flagship synths of the '80s, which was on tour with Tears for Fears.
The Yamaha DX1. Only 140 units were ever made and when the product was launched in 1982, the price of the synth was a staggering US$ 14,000."

"Here is the rest of the 40 year old iconic products which we bought from the "Tears fro Fears" auction.

PPG Wave 2.2, EMU Emulator II, Prophet 5, Hammond C3 with 2 Leslies plus 2 LinnDrums.

Right now we're bringing them to our Kidderminster Care center so we can give them a lot of love so they'll shine again.

Our people are super excited and they can't wait to fire them up. We'll keep you posted."

"Here comes jewel number 1 we bought from the auction:

The Eventide Ultra Harmonizer H3000 which is one of the most iconic harmonizers of all times.

These are all original units from the famous British band “Tears for Fears” who toured with these instruments for decades.

Best of all they come with original patches and presets and of course the road-proven flight cases:-)"
