Vintage Siel Orchestra MK I

via this auction

"Picked this up from original owner along with a Crumar CPB-1 bass pedal.
Fired it up and works fine. See youtube link.
Was stored safely in warm dry location. Corner is chipped and could easily be restored. No volume pedal.

The Orchestra is a 4-part orchestral synthesizer produced by the classic Italian synth company, SIEL between 1979-1982 (later bought by ARP and relabeled the ARP Quartet). The Orchestra has 4 presets: Brass, Strings, Organ and Piano. The 4 tone color families can be played individually or two can be simultaneously played. They are also individually tweakable. Selected presets will light up LEDs to show you which sliders and buttons can be used to modify the sounds."
