Vintage & Original 2013 Buchla Music Easel (BEMI) w/Box and Accesories

Very Good Condition, some marks, slightly wobbly knobs (as originally intended by its designer), and signs of use (see pictures), Fully Functional. This a September 2013 original BEMI Easel back when Don Buchla was still around, synth is soon to have its 10th year anniversary!

Some would call it vintage, so price would only go up! Not in a rush to sell it.

Comes with Quick Start Guide, Banana Shortening Bars, Assorted Banana Cables, Case Keys, BEMI Carrying Pouch for Accessories, 5 Manual Program Cards, 1 TiniCable, Power Adapter, and Original BEMI Box.

Points to consider for this early version:
• 218e is Rev. 1. MIDI IN only. 
• 208e is Rev. 3. Although compatible with Buchla's iProgram card (sold separately), and Buchla's Aux card (sold separately), it has only been used with the original manual program cards with resistors, best experience in my opinion. Check with third-party card manufacturers for compatibility.
• No Firmware Card Port, so the Easel could have been from an early batch.
• Audio 1/4 jacks are Left and Right Out, no option for Sustain In.
• Internal Power is limited to 2 sockets (208e and 218e). Upgrade is possible through third-party vendors, and at owner's risk.
• Reverb is subtle, but definitely not a Strymon or Eventide type of effect. You could upgrade it, or simply use external reverb effects.
• Amazing for what it is, and not for what it could be, or has presently become. Anything after has been done without Don's blessings.


Will ship insured inside original box, and inside a slightly larger box. Will upgrade shipping to UPS 2nd-Day Air if purchased at asking price.
