2x Transcendent 2000 Analogue Synths w/ Docs

via this auction

"Synth 1: ( with the Washburn sticker on the front) I built this myself from the kit and gigged and recorded with it extensively hence it shows plenty of signs of wear on the woodwork in particular. The only problem it ever had was that the bucket brigade noise chip would fail and need replacing from time to time. This seems to be a design weakness with the original chip, there may be a better chip nowadays that could be used instead. The whole synth was working perfectly when I put it away into storage a few years ago.

Synth 2: Was built by my good friend Paul Phippin, a sound engineer for the BBC at the time. He was more engineer than musician so stripped all the 741 chips from it for other projects he worked on over the years, these are very cheap to replace ( about 31p each from RS components ) but consequently this synth definitely does not work but on the up side it has been stored in its original shipping box so the case and wood work is in much better condition.

It is possible to trigger one synth from the other ( or via a 1v / octave sequencer ) which opens up a world of possibilties to make some really phat sounds."

You can find a demo video of this auctual synth here.

"The T2000 was sold only in kit form and this unit has been very well constructed (see interior photo) with a nice style of large knurled control knobs chosen, and unusually a small Roland style knob added to what is usually just the stump of a potentiometer for overall tuning.

Although this unit has never been anywhere near Martin Hannett or any member of Joy Division or New Order AFAIK, it was the unit featured in the book "Analog Synthesizers" (2nd Edition 2019, pp. 364-5) and for many sounds on the CD "Sequencer Loops" (2002) by Mark Jenkins of which a brand new copy is included.

Joy Division Producer Martin Hannett Red Transcendent 2000 Synth in Case w/ Extras

via this auction

"If you know about Martin Hannett Joy Division engineer and producer you will know about his legendary modified Transcendent 2000 synths. this is the type of synth which he introduced Joy Division to in 1978 and the sound of synth that was used on a lot of Joy Division recordings.
This is his legendary red Transcendent 2000 from his cache of Transcendents. Fully working and in its original Hannett flight case, this belonged to the man that produced Joy Division early New Order, U2, Stone Roses ,Magazine, Buzzcocks, John Cooper Clarke, Happy Mondays, Nico etc

you may see cheaper Transcendents but none as good as Hannett's all maintained and ready to use and a great ivestment

like all Hannett gear it will climb in value over the years

it comes with a copy of the book on his equipment with a large section about his Trancendents

will come with note of provenance"

FIVE MINUTES WITH - Transcendent 2000 + Meris Polymoon + Mercury 7

Published on Jan 3, 2020 sonicstate

"A rare treat in the form of the Powertran Transcendent 200 DIY Kit synth from the 1970's paired with the Meris Polymoon and Mercury 7 pedals.
Even though the Transcendent is a bit broken, it's still got it."
