Korg Synthe-Bass

“This is a nice example of this extremely rare beast. A beast it is, monstrous bass from a fantastic oscillator.

Cosmetically it’s all good with no missing slider caps or buttons. Keys are all nice without damage. Outer carry case has a few nicks to the vinyl but overall pretty good. Control panel is nice and I have given everything a good clean up.

Technically, I have played the synth and it sounds good and seems fully operational. There is the odd scratchy sound coming out when adjusting the “Traveller” for instance but it just needs a good service. This synth is from 1976 I believe and is going to benefit from a PSU re-cap fairly soon I would imagine. I have not opened the synth up and looked inside though.

There has been a mod on this synth to accept a set of bass pedals so a 1/4 inch jack added at the top and a switch to the side of the keyboard. I would imagine this makes a nice CV IN, but I’ve not tried it.
