"Hohner String Synth from late 70s made by Italian company Elex who made other string synths for Farfisa, Logan and whoever else asked them to build a model. if they asked real nice.

This thing is in awesome shape and sounds like a poor man’s ARP String Ensemble/Eminent Solina. Much closer to the functionality and sound of an Elka Rhapsody 490 but I think the ensemble modulation sounds thicker. The lowest F# not working when just using cello sound. Could be a case of reseating one of the socketed ICs. Your basic divide-down synth. The power supply has been recapped and some other cap replacements. I added a mod so you can dial in or remove the ensemble modulation. Gives another sound set for some combo organ type vibrato-less sounds. Separate power supply/swell pedal.

With the power supply/vol pedal, this is kind of heavy so would prefer to meet somewhere in the Atlanta area. Of course I offer shipping as well for a flat rate.

Run this gal thru some phaser and start working on that horror movie soundtrack or Klaus Schulze-inspired kozmik voyages. Very easy to work on but you wont need to do anything to enjoy immediately."
