The machine reminds me a lot of Roland's SH-1000's exterior with the controls on the front and the fact that it is very thick and heavy! A notestand can make it look a lot like an organ! (i.e. VERY UGLY) but as live keyboard the warm sound is very nice... It's cheap and quite rare. I would love to get my hands on the original manual! I bet it braggs a lot of this extraordinary machine!!!

Comments About the Sounds:
Warm & nice (like all italian synths (?))
