Up for sale is a gorgeous and rare Italian made Vintage 70s Crumar Orchestrator String Machine / Polyphonic Synthesizer. It’s in good condition with normal wear. It was recently professionally deep cleaned internally and externally and serviced. I think you will be surprised by how incredible this keyboard plays and sounds in person.

One of the richest and lushest sounding 70s string machines ever made in part to its officially licensed Moog Filter on its brass section. It can sound very very similar to the legendary Arp / Eminent Solina and even Arp Omni (Joy Division Synth) but has more tricks up its sleeves.

The Crumar Orchestrator is one of Jonny Greenwood's favorite keyboards and it's been used on a ton of Radiohead songs both in the studio and live. It’s been used by a bunch of other artists as well to this day due to its warm and immediately nostalgic sounds.

Everything works perfectly except the top octave of black keys. They work perfectly for the Violin, Cello and Brass sounds (the best sounds) but currently don't trigger the Piano and Clavich sounds on keys F#4, G#4, A#5, C#5 and D#5. All of the white keys up there work as they should. All of the other keys work as they should. It doesn't come with the lid. Priced accordingly.

My parter and I will use the utter most care securely wrapping and packing this keyboard to give it the best odds of making it to you safely as well as pay for Reverb Protection. Since this is a heavy fragile vintage keyboard we are selling it as is.

Hope it finds a good new home!
