Elektron Sidstation Ninja

via this auction

"If you're clicking you know how rare and desirable these synths are - the all-black Ninja edition of the Sidstation was the most limited production run. They go for a lot - there's currently another "Ninja" on Reverb for $1,886 (+ $125 shipping), so mine is priced to move at $400 less. Only 50 were ever made - unlikely never see another one of these for anything close to this price! Has blue LEDs and looks / sounds awesome.

The Sidstation is the guts of a Commodore 64 with an analog filter and custom software to bring out the power of the original, NOS chipset. Three syncable oscillators produce 8bit waveforms, with wavetables, ring modulation etc. Can make classic video game tones, but can do much more - has a much more raw and powerful sound than a standard analog synth.

Excellent condition sonically and cosmetically. Comes with original power supply, and you can download the manual from Elektron - who went on to make the MachineDrum, Analog Four, Digitakt etc., so they are still going strong."
