Vermona synthesizer

Postby guenii » Mon Feb 04, 2013 10:42 am

Hi, guys!

Maybe someone could help me out a bit.. I got this Vermona synth
couple of days ago from one of my friend... It still works, sounds interesting, but my question is "does it have clean piano sound"? And since it's monophonic - it means that you can play only one note at a time?

If I want to sell it, how much I can get for it?

Thanks in advance for answering...

An acoustic piano? No, not really - but since it's a synthesizer, you can probably coax a passable e-piano (as in a Rhodes/Wurli) type sound out of it.

And since it's monophonic - it means that you can play only one note at a time?

Yes. Which of course decreases its usability as far as piano-type applications go, but you should be able to get some bass & lead sounds from it. No idea about its worth - while it's somewhat rare, I don't think these command very high prices.

My first synth. Bought it for like 100 zlotys, which would make 25 dollars then.
Great transistor ladder 24 dB/oct filter. Keyboard a very unreliable but easy to fix. Also, very noisy.

An easter egg of this synth is that you can combine the radio-type switches so you can get 8 "oscillarors", and waveform mixing.
