# Roland RS-505

Roland, RS-505 @ 05 October 2014

roland rs 505“I bought this new in 1978 and it is in excellent condition having had little use. It is complete with original owners manual and DP-1 external switch.

The Paraphonic is a very well made vintage sounding machine consisting of 3 sections, strings, synthesiser and bass which can be played independently or simultaneously. The keyboard can be split in the middle. The string and synth sections have upper and lower key function and the bass lower key only. The keyboard is 49 note (4 octaves) which is expandable to 7 octaves. All three sections can have vibrato or 3 levels of ensemble added. It is fitted with an external audio input (mono) to allow another synth through the Ensemble chorus function. The performance control section provides volume, tune, glide and pitch bender controls.

The synth is in very good condition with all functions working faultlessly. There is a small rub to one end panel and small scratches on the top which can be seen in the photographs. It is to full UK specification 220-240v.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
