Greece, while known for its synth players - at least one synth player - Vangelis - possibly THE most famous synthesizer player in the world EVER, but actual instruments, thats a different matter. We spotted these Freaqbox Murmux Synthesizers after a tip off from Richard Nichol of Pittsburgh Modular, down in Hall E. One thing that was particularlty groovy was the tweed cloth covering front and back - most unusual.

Murmux Pedal Synth - this is a bass pedal with hand carved keyboard and what looks like a cross between the Initiate and the Semi Modular synth structure in a floor unit.
Prices are $869 for the Murmux Initiate, $1365 for the Semi Modular and $2650 for the Pedal Synth.
