About This Listing


We're selling this very very rare Hitachi Polyphonic Analog Synthesizer with Drum Machine.

The synth is in a good to fair state. Cosmetically the metal panels are in good shape, but the "wood" side panels have suffered a little. 

The synth sounds good, and all knobs are functional. The two filter cutoff pots are a little dirty, so that's why I don't move them at all in the video. The sound is good, though there is a very very faint high pitch sound. It might sound in the video, but if you're old enough (like almost myself), you might not even hear at all. 

I've added some estimates for shipping by UPS, but we can figure out later maybe lower shipping fees. 

Some info about the synth I found in this webpage:
