Vintage CRUMAR 2003 organ / synthesizer / string / brass ensemble

Never seen one of these before. This is the first one featured on the site.


1. CRUMAR 2003 organ / synthesizer / string / brass ensemble: first startup in years
The Crumar 2003 is a very rare instrument which combines the best Crumar had to offer in the late 1970's. It includes one of the best solid state drawbar organs, a monophonic 1 VCO synth, a brass / piano / string section and the Nerve Centre 15 accompanyment section which produces lot's of spacy stuff. The brass / piano / string combination was also offered in standalone instruments like the Orchestrator and Multiman. Strangely enough these are traded for a lot more money then this combined instrument but then again: It weighs a ton and takes up a lot of real estate. This one is a bit of an old banger but I simply cannot bring myself to getting rid of it. It's simply too rare. For more info on my creative adventures visit Have fun!
2. CRUMAR 2003: some general maintenance and startup tips for old organs / synthesizers / keyboards
This is the second video about my rare Crumar 2003 organ. It shows the electronics inside and contains a few general tips about starting up old electronic instruments after years of neglect.
3. CRUMAR 2003 organ/ synthesizer / brass / string ensemble video 3
Here's the 3rd video about my old Crumar 2003. It's similar to the startup video but a bit more compact and made with th asssitence of a camera(wo)man. It's just as unproffesional in about every other aspect though but real vintage synthesizer and keyboard fans might still like it. For more about my creative adventures visit:
