Crumar bit one

“You are purchasing a Crumar Bit One 1 Vintage Synthesizer Mega Rare flightcased GWO Superb condition

This vintage analog synthesizer is in an excellent condition as shown – these were made in around 1984 and have been used by many well known artists over the years

I have tested this (this needs to be connected to an external amplifier & speaker) and it all seems to be working fine, but I haven’t got a clue how to program it properly

All keys are working fine, there are sounds working on the programs, all switches and sliders work as they should

These are very rare to come across in any condition, but this one is really clean and doesn’t look as though it’s been gigged

This comes in a wooden flight case as shown for protection

This uses a standard IEC power cable so no awkward trailing leads attached to it

Connections are standard 1/4″ Jack

This does have MIDI, but by all accounts as it’s very early MIDI it’s not that good, but I haven’t connected it this way personally as haven’t got the equipment or knowledge to do this” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Crumar Bit One

“This is a beast that has been well looked after and in very good condition for the year. I have had it for approx 10 years and now sadly selling. Decided to sell and have had it serviced at Synth Prof in Norfolk where it is currently so I know it is all working as it should, and will send it from direct to you from there. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Crumar Bit 01

“An amazing classic synth with a lovely fat sound – can demonstrate if need be.
I have to admit its sat in the rack unused here in my home studio for 20 Years!!
Only problem is the two volumes sliders have broken off.They can still easily be moved using flat device and could be easily fixed.
Given how old this is I think its in amazing condition” Click here to search for synths on eBay
