Black Corporation Xerxes SN 1839

via this auction

"'This is a near mint Xerxes. Comes with original box, rack ears, and materials.

The only reason I don't list it as mint is because it came from Black Corporation directly with a tiny mark which you can see in the photographs. I point at it with a pencil. THIS MARK IS ON THE REAR or TOP (however you choose to describe it) so it would not be visible while playing, nor when racked.

The Xerxes is perfect in EVERY other way. Black Corporation designed this synth after the Elka Synthex. It has DCO's just like the Synthex and the 3-way analog chorus is also from the Elka. My bandmate has a Synthex at his home and it sounds very much the same. But frankly it also has a bit of Juno in the sound. This is likely due to the DCO's and chorus - which sounds amazing."
