One out of five or six units altogether (the one I used to have had serial numbers 4 and 5... make of that what you wish).

This is one I would not kick out of bed either, an extremely early Moog MuSonics Mini Moog, produced shortly after Bill Waytena´s MuSonics merged with Moog Music to produce the Sonic Six.

One out of maybe ten or fifteen still in existence:

EKO Compute Rhythm, third revision, built around 1977.

You don´t come across these very often, either: A Prophet 5 modded with Yamaha CS80 ribbon controller.

Not particularly analogue but one of the few digital synthesisers I´m still sort of lusting after: Yamaha DX-1 (and a GS-1, of course).

One more for the road:

PPG Wave Computer 360A in an interesting and absolutely roadworthy flightcase, as evidenced by a lot of interesting tags and stickers.

Nice stuff, Stephen.

My 2 cents (continued):

An EMS' failed attempt at a polyphonic synthesizer, the EMS Polysynthi:

Farfisa Polychrome:

Image

Farfisa Soundmaker:

Image

A rarer, wooden version of Farfisa Syntorchestra:

Image

And a rarer even Syntorchestra 4:

The Polychrome is nice. Wish I´d never sold mine.

The Polysynthi is dreadful, though.
