We are selling this gorgeous and rare ELKA OMB 5, Italo Disco Machine from 1985 similar to Solton Programmer 24 + Elka Drumstar 80 and Linn Drum.

The OMB 5 from Elka aka “One Man Band” is an FM and PCM Rom based synthesizer arranger instrument. There are two FM synthesizers on board along with a PCM / Wavetable synthesizer for drums. With this synth you practically have (in addition to synths) a one Drumstar 80 (Elka) and a drum with similar samples Linn! This is a great machine for a trip in the 80s and for Italo Disco, New Wave, Synthwave productions.

CONDITIONS: The unit is fully working and in very excellent cosmetical conditions! There are some minor traces of use and the internal fan, as in all OMB 5 of the world, is a bit noisy. Other than that it is a truly perfect gem!

IMPORTANT: The synth has not been used for many years and therefore - even if it works very well at the moment – it’s possible that in the future it may need a replacement of the electrolytic capacitors or in any case some maintenance (it's a very inexpensive repair that all OMBs sooner or later require).

THIS ELKA OMB 5 IS FULLY WORKING AND IN VERY GOOD COSMETICAL CONDITIONS. IT WILL BE PACKAGED IN A PROFESSIONAL WAY (PLEASE, READ OUR FEEDBACK) BUT IN ANY CASE IT WILL BE SOLD AT BUYER'S RISK, WITHOUT WARRANTY AGAINST POSSIBLE DEFECTS DUE TO TRANSPORT: WE CAN'T OFFER ANY REFUND!

This is your chance to get your hands on a truly legendary Italo Disco machine. A great machine for a trip in the 80s and for Italo Disco, New Wave, Synthwave productions.

Included the super rare instructions manual in English (PDF copy) and Schematics (PDF copy)!

Very hard to let this one go, but it's not getting enough use and it's just time to move on.

See photos & condition description for condition details, but feel free to ask questions.
