KORG 900PS mono/preset synthesizer SN 770347

via this auction

"Made in Japan, from 1975-1977, the Korg 900PS is a rare model...."big brother" to the 700S. Having twin oscillators, 37 keys (with aftertouch via the keys, or by touching the metal rail on front), 29 presets, portamento, white noise & percussive or voices, plus "harmonics" using 4 octaves (like drawbars), and the famous "traveller" (like a filter)...all this adds up to a high-performance, hands-on synthesizer.
Running @ 220/240 Vac (fixed mains cord), weight is around 13 Kgs, dims being 85 x 40 x 15 cms. Everything works, except the on/off switch does not switch off, and there are two fader caps missing. Synth has been serviced, so all faders & switches are crackle-free, and is all safe & sound inside. The wooden end-blacks were tatty, so they have been repaired, then painted in black. Generally, the 900PS is now in a "very good" condition, better than normal for a 44-y-old instrument."
