Amazingingly fat and versatile, up for sale is the Crumar Composer.
Mono synth, Poly synth, Organ and lovely String machine. 
Individual outputs and volumes for each section.
This machine is the king of the Mono - Poly String Machines, the Farfisa Soundmaker and Syntorchestra, but richer and more versatile.

See the video for a great educational runthrough of each section. 

The breath controller works, with a breath tube, you control the attack of the mono section.
The mono-section aftertouch works, wiggling your finger affects the mono section's vibrato. 

We have two Composers and they both have the same set of stubborn but minor quirks:  

For the first 10-20 minutes, when Poly and mono are engaged, switching mono preset makes the poly section jump back to it's first preset. This only happens for the first 10-20 minutes after the machine has been switched on, after that no issue. 
The Mono section Pitchbend on these are generally not great, it works, but hard to dial in that smooth, Jan Hammer bend. 
The string section attack control is long right away, a bit hard to dial in a a 0.5-1 second attack. Everything below or above is easy, and the attack on 0 is still smooth, that typical Crumar String sound.

Estetically in very good condition, a small tear in the wood panel on one side, with small scratches here and there. 

Feel free to ask us anything.

220 Volts with European plug.

Ships from Italy with EMS to the US and other continets, insured trackable shipping for Europe depending on which country, 5 day delivery, but please allow for more time due to customs.
