Great analog preset monosynth, ridiculously cool sounding - one of a kind!
There are two Moog ladder filters in this thing, not one, which makes it sound nice and fat. 
Check out the video for a run through of the presets and filters, great for library / afro funk lead and bass sounds, real greasy!

This is a rather limited keyboard, but it sounds special, very 70's, great basses and leads and the Moog filters have a very wide range and nice bite. 

4 octaves plus the octave down option, a total of five. 

11 modifiable presets: Flute, Trombone, Trumper, Clarinet, Cosmic, Guitar, Hawaii, Telstar etc.

Attack, Decay, Vibrato depth, Cut Off (1st Moog filter) Wah (2nd Moog filter) and Bend (a slight upward bend at the start of the tone). Octave Down. No portamento. 

Loud output (as you can hear in the video) with low noise, so great for running through pedals, compressors, echos and amps.
Some outer wear and tear but it plays great, the buttons still have bounce to them, the keys have good action, a joy for technical players, these synths are generally very well built, still good for runs on the road. 
There's a 5 pin DIN pedal input on the back - not tested.
This synth was incorporated into the Elka Space Organ 705 X, apparently used by Jean Michel Jarre. 
220 Volt European version. 

Includes original Elka case, in quite bad shape, but usable with some tape, or fixable for someone handy. 

No returns, sold as is. Shipping cost is estimated, not final.
