Buchla Music Easel 218R 208R rev1 in Haliburton Case

via this auction

"Buchla Easel Clone rev 1. It is powered and housed in a Zero Halliburton case. It was repurposed from a former photographer and you can see some notes on the inside of the top case. The wiring for the case has not been finished or started. It is a larger case with the idea that you could put 1-200 module next to the 218r (again not finished). The Easel itself (218r 208r) is powered. The IEC power cable comes out the back. The Synth sounds fantastic and is very much alive. The bass is insane! Reverb is dark... I like the "swampy" sound of the rev 1. This was supposedly built by Roman but I can't prove that. FULL DISCLOSURE --- Other things to note, all of the sequencer notes light up but the step it is on lights up brighter. Tracking over 3 octaves can sometimes go out of tune (probably would benefit a calibration but it is not necessary). Sometimes the pulsar does not trigger when you self trigger it (this is a known issue with some REV 1). Includes Pomona Cables and Banana short plugs. Everything you need to get started."
