Logan/Hohner String Melody mkI 1974 - Analogue Synth


Published on Jan 30, 2020 Enzo Boldrini

"The Logan String Melody was a portable keyboard produced in two versions from 1973 to 1982. Manufactured in Italy, it was sold under both the Logan brand name and re-badged as both a and product. The Vox version was called The String Thing but still featured the Logan brand name on the back of the case.

The keyboard consists of four octaves split into two nearly equal sized ranges. In each of these ranges a combination of three string sounds can be mixed using faders labelled Cello, Viola and Violin. Each string sound is pitched one octave apart. In addition to the separate sets of faders for the string sounds, each range has a sustain and release fader. The lower range also features a simple synthesiser that is controlled from using faders labelled Bass and Perc."
