“EDP WASP Synthesiser in full working order with Elby Designs MIDI retrofit which means it can be used with modern sequencing tools. Some cracks to the case which is not unusual for this model and battery compartment shows signs of corroded batteries however it has been modified to allow use of PP9 battery. Comes with non-original mains adaptor. ” Link

EDP, Wasp @ 04 April 2017, Comments Off on EDP Wasp Project Machine

wassp “A vintage EDP Wasp synth in need of a service/repair.

We have fitted batteries to this and had a poke around with a multimeter and there is power appearing across the circuit board, but there is no output from the speaker, line, or headphone outputs.

Physically, it is quite good. We are aware that the cheap plastic casing of these are prone to chips and damage, but the case on this is good with no chips to corners (there are some scratches). The very fragile internal battery tray DOES have a crack, but this is not visible when the item is assembled as it is internal (the battery tray is made of even thinner plastic than the rest of the item!). It is probably easier to attend to electronic components than to try to source a good case and keyboard for one of these.

Careful examination suggests that some components have been replaced (for example one of the pot shafts is of a different color, and some of the knobs appear to be replacements).

The keyboard appears good without some of the excessive wear that you see on some of these machines on eBay. When we removed the knobs in order to have a look inside, we didn’t consider that they had been fitted in any particular order but when we we put it back together, the yellow markers on each knob now point in the wrong direction. Therefore the buyer will need to reposition the yellow tops on the knobs in order to get them to point in the correct direction.” Link

The casing is damaged at the 2 rear corners and prof. repaired crack at the front upper side.
Typical of this synth with the plastic casing…, but it’s still in good solid condition for it’s age.

ELECTRONIC DREAM PLANT

VINTAGE SYNTH

NB: This video is not of the actual item listed, but used for demonstration purposes of its capability. Plenty more on youtube.

Legendary EDP Wasp by Chris Huggett, quirky looking toylike synth but a serious piece of kit, capable of rip roaring synth lines, fat bass…just straight up dirty with so much character. Great for all types of Electronic music.

This was recently serviced by SRS in Jan 2017 and is studio ready.

The casing is damaged in two corners typical of this synth with the plastic casing, originally designed that way to keep costs down. In any case this does not affect its functionality. Kept in a professional smoke free studio and tested prior to listing.

Comes with a non-original quality power adapter.” Link

edpwasp “Unfortunately the WASP got insured after further hard life and after storage it for bout 3 years.

Just the upper keyboard octave seems to produce some sounds some how right now.

Optical there’s a crack in the case at the lower left side, just taped at the moment.

Lower right side case is missing small part.

internal speaker works.

4 poti covers are replace by red ones.” Link

This synth was professionally restored by Dave Brown at Modular Synthesis and is featured on his website. Pictured of the inside are viewable there. Although the synth wasn’t actually broken it exhibited odd behavior due to aging components. Dave solved all the issues and it now works very well and sounds fantastic. Dave also installed an Elby MIDI interface which has the latest firmware. ” Link

Overall condition is excellent, with minimal signs of wear and tear. Unlike most Wasps this one doesn’t have the cracked corners on the casing, however there is a slight scratch on the keybed which can be seen but not obvious, this does not affect its use. (please see pictures).

Also comes with non original power adapter.” Link

edp-wasp “Absolut selten zu findender Vintage Synthesizer aus dem Hause Electronic Dream Planet. Nicht nur wegen seines einzigartigen Designs sorgte der WASP schon zum Erscheinungsjahr 1978 für Aufsehen. Mit seinem speziellen Klang, einer 2 Oktaven umfassende Folientastatur, einem integrierte Lautsprecher und der Möglichkeit mit Batterie betrieben zu werden, unterschied sich der Synthesizer optisch und klanglich von seiner Konkurrenz. Besonderes lebendig werden seine Sounds durch den 6 Wellenformen umfassenden LFO und seinen Multimode-Filter, der sowohl als Low Pass, als Band Pass oder als High Pass genutzt werden kann und bei höheren Resonanzen seinen eigenen, herrlich unsauberen Charakter entfaltet.
Das alles brachten seine Sounds auf Alben von größen wie Thomas Dolby, Duran Duran und Pink Floyd (Welcome to the Machine).” Link

EDP, Wasp @ 13 September 2016, Comments Off on Lot of 2 EDP Wasp Synthesizers

edp-wasp

Here is an Incredible opportunity to purchase two wasp synthesizers. These have both been extensively used in the 1970’s and 80’s by a local leeds band “Lynx”. They are no longer in working order but can be restored to their former glory. The keyboards are particularly well worn and indeed one of them has a broken key.

The Second picture and subsequent 4 pictures are of the better of the two synths. The casing is in good order and it still carries its original serial no sticker. The jack points are good and show little signs of rust and all button covers are intact.

The seventh and following pictures are of the poorer of the two synths. It has no battery station protective back. A couple of the dial covers are missing and the jack points are rusty. Also there is a pice of the casing missing as in the illustration.

Neither synths work although they both produce a tantalising crackle.” Link

EDP, Gnat @ 13 September 2016, Comments Off on EDP Gnat Special

edp-gnat-special “Up for auction, a very rare Electronic Dream Plant (EDP) Gnat Special Synthesizer. This is synth is in unique and is capable of wonder vintage analog synth sounds. The synth is working, the oscillators can be very brilliant, raw, and deep with bass ranges. Combined with the juicy analog filter it’s synth heaven. The Enhance mode oscillator sounds particularly amazing, its the best sounding bass oscillator you’ll have at your disposal. Used in a professional sound design studio, smoke free.

Synth collectors take note, this item has an interesting history/provenance. I purchased it directly from one of the EDP founders Adrian Wagner (also a descendant relative of the composer Richard Wagner). He signed the bottom. This unit is a very early Gnat Special, there isn’t a serial number. ” Link

Some seriously Dark side of the moon sounding stuff with little guy! Its instant Moog, Arp, Roland all rolled into one. Its really that awesome. Check out some videos on you tube for ref. Some of the hard plastic is broken off long ago. Its just plastic after all these weren’t really thought of as made to last decades or anything. Legend has it Pink Floyd, The Who used to give these away as XMAS gifts. Can imagine finding this under your tree? Anyways sans some of the plastic being broken its in good shape. Its not mint probably a 7 as far as condition goes. Only works with power supply as the moment. ” Link

Also the foil sticker over the jack panel is a bit bumpy, and a couple of screws are missing, but they shouldn’t be hard to replace.” Link

einen alten Synthesizer der Marke WASP, hergestellt 1978 von der Fa. EDP (Electronic Dream Plant) in Großbritannien. Es war der erste, kostengünstige Synthesizer. Die Experten werden ihn kennen. Allen anderen empfehle ich eine Recherche bei Wikipedia.

Dieses Exemplar wurde nur kurzfristig genutzt, da die Band, die ihn angeschafft hatte, sich kurz danach auflöste. Die letzten 35 Jahre hat dieses Gerät gut verpackt auf einem trockenen Dachboden verbracht und wurde erst vor kurzem “wiederentdeckt”.

Er ist optisch in einem guten Zustand. Die Funktion kann nicht geprüft werden.” Link

This thing is like a TB 303 on steroids PLUS some! I don’t have the power adapter, but it is common and easy to find. Also runs off batteries (no battery leak, also very good!) Please look at all the photos because I know how “look” is a subjective thing. Will take it to UPS store to be professionally packed, which I will charge as part of shipping (it’s just safer that way). Vintage analog synth, so sold “as-is,” but it is leaving 100% in working condition. ” Link

I had it serviced about 4 years ago & the engineer sourced a Tascam P.s.u that complies exactly power wise to original spec. A couple of the knobs are non standard but otherwise she’s in great nick. The sound is wonderfully powerful with no hiss or noise you can find on Japanese analogs synths. I would much prefer the buyer to collect in person as these synths are delicate but if I have to post I will use a courier service so it may cost more than usual. Your chance to own a fantastic sounding unique bit of synth history..” Link

“This little piece of British synth history I am selling following the death of one of my studio’s owners, an elderly gentleman who collected synths and cherished them dearly. I’m not a synth guy but I shall aim to describe the unit as best I can 🙂

Cosmetic condition is good; there are no cracks or splits in the casing. One knob is missing (on the pitch pot as shown) but this I reckon could be picked up cheaply for someone in the know, and it doesn’t affect the operation.

Powering up the unit, all the controls function (although my knowledge is limited of analogue synths, they all control the sound as I’d imagine. The control pot fourth from bottom right feels a little wonky so it might want to be replaced. The two link sockets on the top right are untested as I don’t know exactly what they do.

The only real issue is that the very bottom key doesn’t work, which I gather is a common issue which can be repaired. Considering the crazy sounds this thing makes, I wouldn’t consider 1 out of 24 keys to be a massive deal, but again I’m not a synth guy!” Link

EDP, Wasp @ 10 June 2014, Comments Off on EDP Wasp

“I am offering a EDP Wasp synthesiser with new power supply (not shown in photograph). I have owned this for the last 34 years and it has been mostly stored away in a cupboard. I offered this for sale about 3 years ago, and found out that one of the oscillators was not working. Since then I have had it fully repaired by ‘Vintage Synths’. The Wasp is now in full working order, with no cracks in the casing, and is in very good condition.

The only minor blemish which you can see from the photographs, is the hand painted symbol at the top near the internal speaker.

Also included is the original Wasp owners manual, which is in good condition for its age. There is a small amount of writing in the notes section at the back of the manual.”

It has recently been professionally serviced by Ben Rossborough at Cyberwave EMS and is fully functional.” Link

Will be nice to midify and install in 19 rack after restoration.

Here’s everything I did and it worked for testing:

1) It powers up (need correct DC power).
2) Keyboard triggers and sound comes but no pitch change.
3) All knobs seem working (change sound) but may need adjustment or replacement.

EDP, Spider, Wasp @ 22 April 2014, Comments Off on EDP Wasp and EDP Spider

“Here is a rare EDP Wasp synth & EDP Spider Sequencer with interface link cable. The Wasp is a two oscillator synth with a quirky touch sensitive keyboard and an onboard speaker.
The Spider is a simple step sequencer.
Both are in great working condition although with all these old units there is cosmetic damage.
Firstly the Wasp casing has been extensively repaired where the casing has cracked, this has been painted to match the finish of the original case. The Wasp has also had a 9v adapter cable hard wired to it so it now runs solely from mains power ( not sure if it will work on batteries or if this has been bypassed ). The Spider is in better condition however the lettering on the fascia has faded and the three yellow buttons on the knobs have been replaced with laminated yellow discs as they had been lost in the mists of the 80s! The synth was recently repaired and given a full service professionally and sounds fantastic with all keys and functions fully working. The sequencer operates by a 9 volt battery and records and plays back, the buttons all work although the transpose buttons are a bit quirky! The synth dates from the late 70s and was made in the UK. There is lots of info on the web about EDP and the synths have quite a cult following. Both units come with non original copies of their manuals. Wasps rarely come up with the matching sequencer so I’ve priced this accordingly. Any questions please ask. Pickup is preferred however if you wish to risk your own courier I will pack well. Sorry UK only.” Link

“Electronic Dream Plant Wasp monophonic synth in need of repair

This bid is for an EDP Wasp, dating from the late 70’s .

Favourite with collectors and experimental sound creators.

This one is in slightly shabby cosmetic condition and there are no screws to the bodywork. The keyboard shows a bit of wear consistent to its age. 3 corners are chipped and there is a break in the casing strip to the bottom of the keyboard (where taped). The battery cover is missing. There are two missing yellow indent caps for the knobs and it has been wired directly for a 9v power supply (hence the wires shown).

This Wasp is not working though has not been looked at. This is sold as spares or repair and comes with no guarantee and no returns.” Link

“EDP Wasp classic analogue monosynth in need of repair

This is an EDP Wasp, a classic analogue monophonic synthesizer dating from around 1978. Famous for its powerful dual-DCO sound, compact design and innovative touch-keyboard, the Wasp is a favourite with collectors and experimenters. It features a proprietary digital connection system, but can be controlled by interfaces such as Kenton’s, or modified for use with MIDI.

This one is in good physical condition; the keyboard shows very little sign of wear, the case has only some very minor wear and chipping at corners, the battery cover is intact, and there’s no sign of battery leakage. Some of the screws may not be original, and one knob cap is slightly mismatched in colour – replacements are easy to find if you’re bothered.

However, it’s in need of complete servicing as it’s functioning poorly, with one oscillator silent, the filter malfunctioning, and intermittent faults with other functions. It should be possible to have it repaired, as the Wasp was designed using easily available off-the-shelf components, but it’s sold as is with no guarantee and no possibility of return.” Link
