This is one of the oddest and most mythical of all classic Analog keyboards to it´s layout ( s full size keyboards, i mini keyboard and then two octave basspedals) and it´s weight...250 kgs.

Used by keyboard greats such as Benny Andersson ( Abba ) John Paul Jones, Hans Zimmer, Keith Emerson and Stevie Wonder this synth is responsible for many classic keyboard moments.

Comments About the Sounds:
Massive Analog Polyphonic sounds. Truly remarkable.
