“The synthesizer is in Good working order and The stickers willl be removed upon sale. sometimes when in oscillator sync mode, and on square wave mode, the uppermost E sounds slightly more quiet than the other keys. this is not really noticeable and I never had any problems with it (especially bc I never use sync mode) Also the 2′ organ section does not sound on E or F.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Bit 01 Rackmount Analog (DCO) Synthesizer – Made in Italy – Vintage 80s -RARE

This is the expander unit for the Crumar Bit One, or a standalone synth.

Cosmetic Condtion:
Near-Mint. No major scratches. This unit does not have a silver sticker with Serial Number. The post for the Upper Volume slider has broken off, but is an easy fix.

Physical Condition:
Power supply was recently repaired, and brand NEW CEM3328 low-pass filters installed. Patches have been loaded, and unit is ready to rock. Recently serviced in 2018 by Bruce B of East Bay Analog Repair in Oakland.

Some great features:

Velocity Sensitive (adjustable Attack Velocity)
6 Voices with CEM3328 low-pass Filters
Full SYSEX MIDI Capable with MIDI In/Thru
Very programmable synth with control assignable to many parameters
Bi-timbral capability

All 99 of the Original factory sound patches have been loaded. The patches in the Bit01 are different than those inthe Bit One keyboard, to allow for more range of complementary sounds.

Strengths: Piano/organ, bass (think Juno 60), de-tuned brass, sounds are possible with some programming knowledge.
Weaknesses: Strings” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Very rare vintage Crumar DS-2 analog/digital synth. In good cosmetic shape – all knobs and sliders are there and front panel looks good. Has some tape residue on the back. Does not have the lid.

**Has some major functional problems** – it will need work: Only one of the VCOs seems to work and the poly section is not outputing, many of the sliders and pots are scratchy, the VCF and filters seem to work correctly, all keys seem to work, the bender bar is hard to move, and the Pitch poly pot is a little warped. Still makes some cool weird sounds, but definitely not in normal working order.

” CRUMAR TRILOGY,polyphonic analog synt!
CEM and SSM vintage chips.
Nice condition for its age.
Sounds strong analog.
Few scratches on woodsides and front panel.
Crumar Trilogy is very collectable,the prices go to 900-1200 USD,check on internet.

This synt is not in mint condition and need some tunning and fixation to work perfect,so I set the price lower.

I checked this synt ,and will describe the issues I found on this synt
NEED SOME FIXATION,SERVICE!
1.There are preset cards inside the synts,but the preset button on the front panel stuck on preset number 6,(see picture)it doesnt move when other presets are pushed.
2.Ocilators 1 and Oscilators 2 ,VCF filter,LFO ,drawbars and pots works,few pots dont affect the sound when rotated,maybe it is lack of my understand of this keyboard or circuits isssue.
3.The envelope doesnt work althrough I found it is not dead.When I disconnect the connector on the board inside ( see picture)then the envelope start to react but the VCF filter doesnt work.Or vice versa.
3.The synt output connector on the back panel is dump ,but it works fine.
4.Jostick plastick missing,oscilator sync button accept after few pushes, and envelope release potenciometer cap missing,but it can be move up down

Generally,the synt works and produce nice analog sound but there is some circuits mess or connection issues beetween oscilattors, VCF and envelope.Need proffesional touch.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

The hard case is well worn but still functional, it has protected this synth well over the years.

it was used in a band when bought as new back in the day, by my friends son who used it and after a few years the band split and this synth was put into storage where it stayed until a few years ago when it was found and given to me to play with, which i have briefly but i am not really a synth player but do play piano, i havent got time to learn how to play this properly so i want it to goto someone who can better appreciate and get the best out of it cos its got a great sound and there probably arent many left in the world anymore.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

dbe “This is the Crumar Unique DBE synthesizer from Italy. It has the most 3 dimensional fat sounds I’ve heard in a synth short of an OBXa. When I got it 2 voices were out. I’ve recapped the power supply, replaced the memory battery and replaced all the filter ics. Now all the voices are working but one is less expressive as the others. I suspect the one of the filter chip holders might need to be cleaned but I haven’t investigated it any further accept that it’s more noticeable when playing some voices than others. I think it is quite useable in the shape I am sending it, however, this is being sold as is, for parts or repair, to be clear.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

stratis “Here’s the first of two (yes two!) Crumar Stratus Polysynths that are being sold as spares or repairs units. The unit had been working apparently and then after a period of no use no longer functioned. It has had it’s CEM chips removed from the voice cards I’m afraid, though these do not contain the oscillators. This is a divider oscillator synth and so shares the waveform generation with the organ section. Check out any of the online demos of these if you need to know more of what these machines are about.
The wooden endcheeks are showing signs of considerable wear and some of the graphics are a bit thin on a few functions.

Crumar @ 19 July 2016, Comments Off on Crumar Bit One

bit_one “Im not going to go thru the specs. The Crumar Bit One is a bit of a rarity and oddity. So, if you are still reading – you know what it is. There are none currently on eBay in the UK.

Its capable of some weird and wonderful sounds when programmed. Thunderous basses and wonderous effects abound. It is fairly unique in that certain parameters (not just amplitude and filter) can be affected by key velocity. The presence of a second LFO is also interesting.

It is in very good shape considering its age. I have had it a relatively short while but am looking to buy an Alesis Ion or Korg Z1 with the proceeds. I would consider a direct swap for said synths.

It has a few minor issues:

1. A couple of keys only play when hit hard or wriggled. Obviously a contact issue and I have confirmed this by using an external MIDI keyboard.

2. There is some very light scratching to the fascia on the right hand side.

3. Three of the keys look to have either burns or melting. Again – they are fully playable – its a cosmetic thing.

Everything else is working fine – LEDs bright, sliders clean and audio output good. Both pitch and mod wheels are working. Note to buyer – you MUST use both upper and lower outputs on the rear. The weird architecture means that the 6 voices are shared across the two outputs.

I shall be sorry to see it go, regret it in 5 years time and be looking for one on ebay again. Such is the life of a synth head.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Bit 01, Crumar @ 24 May 2016, Comments Off on Crumar Bit One

bitone“With regret, I’m selling my vintage Italian 80s polysynth…Crumar Bit One.

This synth works great…EXCEPT FOR ONE THING…I am having difficulties getting it to retain the patches I create. I want to tell you about this up front so that I accurately describe this instrument. Here’s the story…

I bought this synth a few years ago from Switched on Austin (specialty analog synth shop in TX). They had refurbished it. I used this synth to record my last two albums without any issue at all. Now, I’m working on my final album and It is losing all of my patches if it stays powered off for a few hours. If I create a patch, save it, power off, then back on a bit later…it’s still there. But if it remains off for the majority of a day…the patch is gone. It reverts back to the default random noises.

I thought it was a simple dead battery. So I replaced it. It worked great for about a week. Kept my patches. Beautiful! Now now…it’s back to misbehaving. Losing patches after a few hours of powering down. I know that’s a long explanation…but there ya go. I think it’s something more than just a bad battery. I included photos of the insides so you can see that everything is in great condition, including the battery holder and board.

The tape save / load function works fine. So if you didn’t want to fuss with the battery, you could save all your patches that way. It’s maybe not the most convenient thing in the world, but it’d get the job done. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
