Here we have a vintage Yamaha SHS-10 keytar synthesizer that I've modified with
12 Glitch toggle switches, 1 slide glitch switch and 1 glitch control knob.
These are incredibly fun and creative machines full of unlimited, experimental sounds.

I based the mods around sounds I was hearing on "Touch", by Morton Subotnick 
as he played the Buchla. Its a fantastic album you should listen to If you have'nt

Works as a normal Yamaha SHS-10 until you turn on a glitch. Different mods will create
different textures, pads, electricity sounds and so forth.

I rarely mod these as the stock price is already around $200 and they're labor intensive.
Photos are of the actual keyboard you're considering.

I've been circuit bending and building devices for over 2 decades. My circuit bent gear is
employed by famous and amateur musicians and recording studios the world over.

 I'll try to get a demo video up but these machines are really diverse and would require
hours of demos to give a small example.

If you enjoy creating with different sounds similar to the Buchla, you're going to thoroughly
have a blast playing this keytar.

Please visit my website for more examples of my work.
Seach bentstruments on Youtube for my music if interested.
