Vintage Stylophone 350s

via this auction

"Vintage Stylophone 350s that was made in England. This unit works well, and has fresh batteries (takes 2 x large PP9 9 volt). This machine has some very awesome capabilities. It has two stylus, one of which is for the reiteration effect, basically a two speed on/off tremolo, which can be used in tandem with the main stylus. Also, the photo effect is super fun, you can choose vibrato or wah wah, and with your left hand proximity, increase or decrease the effect (not unlike a theremin). With the rocker switches you can get many different variations of the Stylophone tone. Sometimes the rocker switches take a couple of attempts to engage as they should, but all switches work. The unit is in excellent cosmetic shape."

Vintage Rhodes Chroma Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"The Rhodes Chroma is a vintage polyphonic, multitimbral, microprocessor controlled, subtractive synthesis, analog synthesizer. This Chroma is being sold as is. It does not make sound. When I plugged in the synthesizer and turned it on, no display or lights came on. The power supply hummed and I immediately turned it off and unplugged it. This Chroma is in good physical condition inside and out. It has some kind of tape residue on the wood side panels and one of the plastic tops of the number 2 left hand controller is missing.

The Chroma uses an Electronically Reconfigurable System which allows the VCOs, VCFs and VCAs to be reconfigured or patched like modular synthesizers but without the patch cords. Instead, the Chroma digitally stores all of the parameters which determine a sound. The Chroma has better patching capabilities than most modular systems and it is fully programmable."
