Sidrax “The Sidrax Organ follows a lineage of electronic musical instruments based on touch. It was redesigned twice, first as Sidrassi, then as Sidrazzi. It has seven wooden bars that you press to express seven oscillators within. Each oscillator has its own fine tuning slider, embedded right within its bar. Also, there is a master pitch knob, and a master chaos knob. The master chaos knob makes the instrument go from pure triangle tones to a nest of noise. It does this by gradually increasing modulation from one oscillator to the next in a circular pattern. Sidrax has enough bars to construct sweetest melodies from the triangle waves, whereas Tetrax is a simple four-bar entity, with complexity of tone for funky bass.

There are 44 modulation points brought forth as banana jacks. They are arranged in seven columns, representing the seven bars. Their layout is shifted diagonally, to allow inputs in proximity to outputs. This is for touch-playability; you can make banana jack metal studs that can be squished by hand to gesture-patch the instrument. Inputs are cool colors: blue, green, and grey. Outputs are hot colors: red and orange. The grey jacks are parallel inputs with the master knobs: the one on the left is for master pitch, the right one is master chaos. The color allotment for each bar is as follows:

Two orange jacks, representing the press and release gestures on that bar in voltage.

One red jack, which is the pure triangle output of that oscillator.

Two green jacks, that are “glitch” inputs. They cause the boundary conditions of each oscillator to wire to the output of another. A modulation inspired by circuit bending.

One blue jack, an fm modulation input for that oscillator.

The Sidrax organ has a stereo-mini output on the back. This is because each bar, outputs in different channels during the press/release cycle. In addition to the stereo-mini jack, it has an power switch, and optional built-in batteries, or an external, 9volt battery snap.

As a bonus of this auction I am including a power adapter and 7 patch cables.”

sidrazzi “I will hate myself in the morning…

NICE Sidrazzi, beautiful woods. Fun and unique tonalities.

Includes power supply.” Link

plumbutter ” This is one phenomenal instrument. It lives and breathes a beautiful sound of its own. Out of everything I have to sell to go to Vet school this is the one piece I still want to hang on to.

I had this plugged into a Strymon Timeline and Bluesky and the results are literally awesome. There’s some patch sheets on Muffwiggler that got me started and then I just got into it from there.

I got this brand new earlier in the year and it still smells like fresh cut wood – awesome!

It comes complete with a stereo output jack, power supply and 26 PVC stacking banana plugs (various lengths) from Test Path so you’ll have everything you need to plug and play right away.

This is the ticket to unique one-of-a-kind sounds, atmospheres and drones in your music and film scores.” Link

Plumbutter “Ciat Lonbarde Plumbutter synthesizer/sequencer/drum machine in great condition. Comes with 15 patch cords and AC adapter. You may want to purchase some additional patch cords. It’s a rather esoteric instrument, so I’m assuming if your reading this you know what it is, but there is more info on the Ciat Lonbarde website. ” Link

Fun, but could not get into the programming GUI.
Sidrazzi is more my speed…..
Nice unit in good working order.” Link

Ciat Lonbarde Deerhorn Organ “The Deerhorn is a fantastic Theremin-like instrument by Peter Blasser / Ciat-Lonbarde. The Deerhorn organ is made up of three of these Deerhorns.

Each Deerhorn has an antenna, the circuit boards in the photo by the knobs and jacks, two oscillators, and two VCAs. The distance of your hand and rate of approach or leaving from the antenna control the volume of a VCA (one VCA for motion toward the antenna, another VCA for away. The VCAs then go to a stereo 3.5mm jack, which gives a stereo feel to the instrument). That control voltage is also available at the orange jack. It can be patched into the purple jacks to control the pitch. There are other jacks, and wonderful cross modulation possibilities exist.

This is the older style unit (no audio input).

I added a ground banana jack, it’s on the back, near the audio output, in line with the 3rd Deerhorn’s antenna. It works perfectly. I should say that I had to repair one of the tuning capacitors in one of the Deerhorns after it broke while I was calibrating it.” Link

Ciat-Lonbarde Sidrassi “Ciat-Lonbarde Sidrassi Organ from the days when Peter Blasser was making each instrument by hand and in very small numbers. The larger barres create an EXTREMELY sensitive and expressive experience. Tap gently for percussion noises, longer presses for very articulate control over organ sounds ranging from sublime to chaotic.” Link

Shbobo Shnth “Up for sale is a barely used Shbobo Shnth. I purchased this new direct from Shbobo/Synthmall. One of the most versatile devices created by Peter Blasser, you create your own patches on your computer and upload them to the device. Kind of like the Nord Modular of the Ciat-Lonbarde/Peter Blasser synth world. It can also function as a usb controller for software applications.” Link

“Ciat-Lonbarde Sidrazzi Organ – handmade by Peter B. One of the last handmade instruments produced in the old format. In mint condition, as received from Peter. This particular unit was in the last batch of Sidrazzis produced – they will not be produced again in this format. Ciat-Lonbarde synthesizers are some of the freshest and most interesting units produced.” Link

“Great rationalist version of Peters Rolz5.

Meng Qi’s circuit layout is art unto itself.

Many mods can be done easily. Separate outs, different values for gongs and filters, ect.

Uses a LOT of bananas to patch. No cables included. Can use alligator clips, or touch.

Cool, weird, not for the faint of heart.

Auction for unit and PS only.” Link

“Used by me, purchased directly from Peter. One of the switches gave out and I contacted Peter, he sent me a new one. It’s the red switch, obviously.
Up for sale is the long-discontinued and much sought-after Cocolase by Ciat Lonbarde

If you don’t know what it is or what it does, it might not be for you. This is NOT a plug and play box. Stereo sampling looping cross talk glitching.” Link
