Bode Model No V-7701 Sixteeen Channel Vocoder.Need I say more?!?

It doesn't get much rarer than this groundbreaking and historic vintage vocoder.

The Bode design was licensed to Moog for their vocoder, the only real difference being the rebranding. 

Harald Bode was a pioneer of electronic instrument design and responsible for many of the circuits and concepts we take for granted today. Most of his designs were incorporated into products for other companies (Estey, Wurlitzer, etc) but the most revolutionary bore his own name. The Bode Frequency Shifter and Bode Vocoder are arguably to most coveted of these. The model 7701 is a very rare version of the already incredibly rare Bode Vocoder. I have never seen another and it may have been an early prototype build though the build quality is top notch. It is entirely likely this is the only one or one of only a handful of units made. 

This unit is working and sounds incredible. I have been the owner for 20+ years and now its time for someone else to enjoy this piece of music history.
