German Italian synth designers smoking during the 1980s? Raffael writes: "I found this strange thing on German eBay yesterday. It's an Elka organ with accordion keys. The German text says: 'Analog synthesizer, synth or keyboard from the 80s ...quite heavy and dirty, found in cellar...function unknown...' I remember having seen one of these in a second hand shop years ago, but I don't know what it sounds like.
I can imagine a joyless "alleinunterhalter" (one-man band, literally: "alone entertainer") using this in a beer tent." Currently just €5.50 and they accept international bids and Paypal (which is quite rare in Germany). I think this dude at Gizmodo should invest. UPDATE: It went for €5.50! It seems to be a Concorde X-902. Here is a great picture from the peerless combo-organ.com.
