Here is a very rare 1979 EMS Synthi E that is for sale on eBay. There are a few very beautifully designed synths in this world. In my mind this one takes the number 3 most pretty synth right behind the Minimoog Voyager and Waldorf Wave. What a stunner! If I had $10,000 in disposable income I would quickly click the Buy Now button. So pretty! The videos are not the particular Synthi E on sale.
“For your consideration is this vintage 1979 Electronic Music Studios (EMS) Synthi-E analog synthesizer. Experts have estimated that this incredibly rare synth was produced in limited numbers, in fact, most approximate that less than 200 were manufactured. Of those that have been documented, it is difficult to find a better example, especially such a fine specimen with the original matching DKE keyboard (serial number 7137) and original patch cables. While highly collectible Synthi-A versions are somewhat accessible, the Synthi-E is virtually E-xtinct. Do not miss this opportunity own one of the coolest and rarest synths ever made, because it is possible another will not appear available on eBay for years to come.” – los.angeles.guitar.shop

Another great contributor to the awesome music cannon we humans have has died. The Bee Gees were great. I adore the two songs above.
“Robin Gibb, one of three brothers who made up the disco group the Bee Gees behind “Saturday Night Fever” and other now-iconic sounds from the 1970s, died on Sunday, according to a statement on his website.” – CNN

A lucite and chrome organ. I can’t believe there are five of these. They should put one of these in the glass cube Apple store for the holiday season. It would also look good in a futuristic home situated on a cliff somewhere in California. Just dreaming out loud…
“Phantasmagoric Lucite Organ and Speakers. Words fail to describe the awesomeness of this piece! Made in 1970 by Wersi Electronics, it is one of only 5 ever made. Reportedly its cost in 1970 was over $100,000. The Delta Digital DX500 organ comes replete with all manuals, control panel templates, music stand, amplified speakers, lucite dollies, pedal board, adjustable bench and chromed keys. And it works beautifully!!!” – 1stdibs.com
