Exploring 2 Welson Stereo Symphony !

video upload by Vintage Audio Institute Italia

"Welson Stereo Symphony - sometimes called Welson Stereo Orchestra.
A rare, Italian string machine from the mid 70's with brass, trumpet, Piano and Harpsichord presets and multiple panning controls.
We just got two of these back from repairs so thought we'd make a comparison video.
To our ears they sound very similar, as should be, but some presets do differ a bit.
This could be because of ageing components and calibration, or the fact that only a small number of these were ever made, at least compared to the Solina String Ensemble or Logan String Melody, and small production runs don't have the same consistency as the large ones.
Volume and sustain controls for each presets at the split point, maybe a bit excessive but anyways - this is a great sounding instrument in our opinion.
Playing around with the preset and Orchestra pan options gives you a wider range of sounds than your normal string machine."
