So I get an email from a friend saying "Have you seen this?" I check the link and am confronted by the wonderful Roland System 700 - a beast of a modular from the late 1970's that's in immaculate condition. Of course, I'd love to buy it I say, but I suspect the final price is likely to be a tad out of my reach (it was at £18k when I looked). But its in Bath came the reply. Right then, a quick message to the seller and off I went to take a look. Kindly, Mark who is selling this as part of a collection for Ian Stanley, a former Tears for Fears keyboard player and producer with a long list of credits (Human League, Aha etc), invited me round to take a last look at it before it heads off to it's lucky new owner
    System 700 Facts

  • Weighs over 160KG in case
  • Originally cost over £10,000
  • Full system has 9 oscillators
  • Power is distributed using standard mains IEC connectors, but the voltage is much lower – so don't plug it in to the the mains!
  • Users include: Giorgio Moroder, Hans Zimmer, Isao Tomita and Pink Floyd
Many thanks again to Mark for letting us take a look around. Keep an eye on some of the other stuff coming up from this collection at Mark's merchant link on eBay.
