Last of the great Japanese monophonic preset synths, this features all the groovy late 1970s add-ons in the vein of the ARP Pro-Soloist and Roland SH-1000/2000.  Built-in spring reverb, aftertouch-controlled  growl/bend/vibrato/wow/filter, flanger, repeater, portamento AND glissando.  I bought this and used it on an album for a project that no longer exists, so looking to send it off to a new home.  I have always used the instrument with a 120V-to-100V step-down converter to meet the Japanese electrical standard, and so recommend that you do the same.

The fake wood has some damage on one of the side panels as you can see in the photos. The synth was fully serviced in 2018 and the only electrical thing that the tech said they would eventually replace was the aftertouch strip - there are aftermarket solutions available (such as the one for the Arp Prosoloist) which would rejuvenate its sensitivity to the way it was when it left the factory. It works well, you just have to press down on the keys firmly, so I didn't opt for that. I've made a short video which shows this as well as the rare glissando function.

I've never trusted the generally crappy headphone jacks on preset synths from this era, so I can't speak to its functionality. There's a USB-powered LED strip visible in the pictures which added some fun lighting - it comes right off for those looking to keep things vintage ;)  It does not come with the original "music stand" metal attachment nor the plastic cover I believe it came with originally. I can send a copy of the manual via PDF if you're interested, don't hesitate to reach out.  I can also include a Japanese-made Sanyo TSD-015U step-down converter for an additional $40.
