About This Listing

Very very rare Italian string machine made in the 70’s. Branded also as Farfisa or Hohner , this is the original one, made by Elex, a very obscure Italian brand from Recanati.
It works great, cosmetically has some signs of age.

Sounds similar to the Elka Rhapsody 610, but with a few differences - the 'Ensemble' button does not turn the chorus on/off (as you mighty expect) the chorus is permanently on - instead, this enables the lower part of the keyboard from the split point down to play all 4 octaves simultaneously (eg for the C2 key, C2, C3, C4 and C5 all play simultaneously) - it is fully polyphonic and sounds massive. It also has a 'Bass' (presumably guitar) preset which plays bass below the split point. Unlike the 610, each of the Piano/ Harpsichord/Cello/Strings can be enabled/cancelled for each half of the keyboard (although, like the 610, there are separate level controls for each half of the keyboard with the addition of a level control for the 'Bass'). The only omission compared to the 610 is the lack of decay controls for the Piano/Harpsichord. There are separate outs for the 'Piano', 'Piano-Harp' and 'Bass' as well as a mix output ('General').

Shipping worldwide, we can discuss the cost in advance.
