Wood Cased Jasper EDP Wasp Synthesizer

via this auction

"This powerful analog synthesizer is a recreation of Electronic Dream Plant’s 1978 cult favorite, the EDP Wasp. Nothing quite compares to the analog tones produced by this monstrous machine. From leg-quivering rumbles in the industrial realm to the pulsing LFO’s of techno, this thing can take you to the ambient landscapes of tomorrow or even the lead solos you crave on your prog rock group.

It is encased in a custom wooden case that used Moog as an inspiration. It will come with a top board that is fastened to the unit and serves as a wooden briefcase, nifty for rolling out of a gig and into the night.

Some issues with the unit: it was built from the ground up. So the knobs aren’t quite calibrated to be the exact degree where the markings say are, for example, square wave or triangle wave. On the filter section, the knob goes right in the middle of each of the markings instead of right on the dot. The bottom right knob is fully functional but for some reason swings to the right in an overt manner (it goes past the delay marking). The top right of the unit where in the input and output are is kept in place by a single nail. A while ago it popped out but I popped it back in. Worst comes to worst, some glue oughta do.

Everything is fully functional."
