Elgam Carousel

I just set up an eBay alert for an Elgam Carousel. You could really call this a vintage groovebox. It would go nicely with my Omnichord! Pretty machine.

“The CAROUSEL is an interesting analog preset rhythmbox with accompaniment made by Elgam, Italy. It has rhythm (like the Elgam Rhythm Match series), bass, chord and 3 arpeggiators! Rare, obscure and very interesting!” – AnalogAudio1

    Nooo…
    Get a midified Roland cmu-800r / cmu 810 combo.. sounds the same, but better….
    If you wanna keep it oldschool dont midify it, but than you need to control it via Apple IIe…
    the 800 goes cheap on ebay… the 810 is more rare and fetches for way more… 800 has 8 cv 8 gate outs… 810 has cv in for alot of stuff..
