who would want one other than rich guys with disposable income and a yearning for nostalgia..... way too much money... and as you know mellotrons are useless on the road... very unstable... but.....kudos to him anyways. I know they are unstable cause I owned one. in the 70's

I can't belive anyone would spend $6800.00 on this. With all of the VST's out there mimicking this thing why would anybody buy this. 3 sounds? I suppose it's nostalgia but in today's economy?

I can understand gear lust for hardware synths (twiddling the myriad of knobs on a Minimoog is nothing like twiddling the knobs on an Automapped Novation SL). But something like this... naaaa. Its like Fairlight reissuing the original CMI...

Because nothing sounds or reacts like a Mellotron, the asthmatic groaning of the tapes, the clicking of the keys and that spitting attack, how the tape head would never start playing back the tape at the same point, you can only replicate it with samples and VSTs to a certain point. I agree, the price is insane, but all I can really think about is that I DON'T HAVE ONE!!!!!!! Memotron for me, I guess...
