"An extremely rare chance to bid on a MacBeth M5N (less than 100 ever made) semi modular synthesiser designed by Ken MacBeth. This is the latest version of the M5 with the modded envelopes which are a lot "snappier" and the filters have been modded to improve S/N. Otherwise the M5N is just a new paintjob and and new slider caps. The sound of the MacBeth is just phenominal...from some of the videos and interviews on the web it seems that Ken took the best of his favourite synths (EMS VCS3, Arp 2600 and MiniMoog) and created a real analogue from scratch using discrete components (no chips) and to my ears this is a real success...its got the qualities of all of the synths which is weird as you end up saying things like "thin but warm", "fat and ethereal" which just doesnt make sense...until you hear the M5N.

This is made in EU, so is 230 volt, and needs transformer to operate in U.S..  

This is 65 pounds and has to be shipped by freight only.  Sorry for the high cost, but it is truly the largest and heaviest synth I own, moreso than a Moog, Arp or Oberheim OBMX
