"One of the few remaining Logan Big Band on the planet, always handled with love and care. Recently serviced, this impressive string synthesizer looks great and works like a charm.

The Big Band is a six-voice polyphonic string synthesizer produced by the Italian manufacturer Logan from 1980 to 1982. Released in the same period of the Vocalist, it's an extremely rare machine, only around 1000 units produced.

The Big Band features a variety of sounds including Brass, Strings, Organ, Reeds (Musette + Accordion) and Piano (Piano + Harpsichord). The sounds are organized into 3 main sections delimited by red lines. Brass + String/Organ/Reeds + Piano/Harpsichord can be played at the same time or individually.

Brass : In the Brass section the controls are: Brass 16", Brass 8", Attack, Brilliance and two controls for Vibrato: Depth and Delay. The red on/off switch activates/deactivates the Brass section. This Brass sound is absolutely one of the most impressive ever.

Strings/Organs/Reeds : Here you can select one of the 3 included sounds at once using the 3 on/off switches. In this section there are String 16" String 8" and String 4" controls that also work for the Organ. Next to String controls there are two more for the Reed section which features Musette and Accordion. String, Organ and Reeds share the same Attack and Sustain controls.

Pianos : The Piano section features Piano 16", Piano 8", Harpsichord and the Sustain control which works for all the 3 Piano sources. The red on/off switch activate/deactivate the Piano section."
