"1970s Univox K-2 Korg Mini-Korg 700S monophonic analog synthesizer in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Made in Japan by Korg, the K-2 was distributed to American markets under the Univox brand. An early, classic, straightforward monophonic all-analog synthesizer, the K-2 can most notably be heard in action on the Cars’ recordings.

Korg’s very first synthesizer was the Mini-Korg 700 and offered a single oscillator, while the improved 700S provides a pair. Sawtooth, triangle and square waves define the textural cut, while both low and high-pass filters can be used to tame the tooth. The intuitive layout is comprised of a smattering of substantial-feeling knobs and sliders, with controls labeled Bender, Traveler and Expand for the auto-bend, filter and envelope, respectively. Thick, textural tones emanate from this analog inspiration with ease.

Cosmetically, this Univox K-2 is very clean with all of the original knobs and screenprinting intact. The hardwood end caps show some minor edge wear and scuffing, and this synth comes with its original case."
