Elka Soloist 505 Vintage Analogue Mono Synth

via this auction

"Elka Soloist 505 analogue monosynth from mid-late 70s. In good condition for it's age and good working order. It's a preset synth but with plenty of hands on controls for modifying your sounds. It is capable of some cutting leads through to punchy basses.

Just a couple of little niggles I need to mention. The slider cap is missing from the volume slider, it still functions as normal but you need to stick a pen or similar in there to move it. Also, the very top C sounds exactly the same as the C one octave below. There's a few marks and scuffs as you might expect for it's age but as you can see from the photos it's still looking great.

Other than those points everything works as it should and it sounds excellent, especially through some external effects."
