“This boutique and exquisite handmade piece is the 19th Swarmatron of 66 total made by the Dewan cousins.
Purchased new this item is $4000 just to get on an 8 month+ waiting list. It is unlikely that many more of these will be made.

This instrument quickly gained public interest after Trent Reznor took home a Golden Globe and an
Academy Award for best original score in David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’ in which the Swarmatron was the featured instrument
and was responsible for the incredible cinematic tension the score was noted for.

Played using two ribbon controllers, the Swarmatron orchestrates a symphony of seemingly angry yet musical bees.
This extremely rare synth has been cared for intensely over the past few years and shows very little cosmetic wear.
It is as chaotic as it is musical, it is as inspiring as it is challenging.
With the option of Fine Tuning + CV control for Pitch / Gate / Filter / Swarm this beast has the option of being as tame as you want it.” Link
