Buchla 200e

Another iconic modular synth (though not vintage) of the west coast philosphy - eg: that synthesizers should be used for experimental work and not made simple to use or dumbed down in any way. Mind you at this price, you'll need to have some intelligence to earn the kind of money required to own one.

The Buchla 200e is thought by many to be the pinnacle of modern modular synthesis, this one was in near perfect cosmetic condition and originally purchased in 2008. These days if you want one, its 50% down and 3 months to wait. So what is half of £13505.12? - More than you or I can afford I dare say..

The PPG is a work of art and it sounds unbelievable. I would have to say that in my studio the PPG would get the most use out of all these synth. I would love to have them all but if I had to choose it would be the PPG.

I second Mattsynth's comment. I owned a PPG wave 2.3 20 years ago and I've many synths and workstations since then. There is nothing like the PPG!
