This is a Nazi gas jet I thought... as it turns out I'm informed it's made by the crane company who used that logo. I found it lying on a hill near where I was born in Los Angeles area when I was a kid. Just goes to show... everything isn't what it appears to be. Thanks for the person who offered correction on that!

Aurora that took place 11/04! From my yard! (20sec on Vericolor 400 enhanced, but it was awesome!)
Also that was with a 24mm lens on old 35mm OM-10. I've been doing a little digital photography as well. Here's a spider who almost got into my hair when I first moved here. And continuing throught that door the Bridger Mountains

A little picture that gives the general idea of what we observe with regard to the likelihood of species being able to evolve between one another. The white space represents a 'field' of genetic possibilities. Each space near a pixel contains the next possible mutational configuration in various 'directions'. In other words each pixel contains an imaginary number of pixels far too vast to display. So this is purely a qualitative picture. BUt it shows the kind of enourmouty of the possibilities that exist in a qualitative way as compared to the DOTS whose area represents valid observed mutational possibilities within a species. Only a few species were approximated in a 256x256 pixel space just to give the qualitative idea again. In reality these 'dead zones' are even more vast. THIS IS BECAUSE LIFE FORMS are a VERY intricately designed thing. THey require various organs to function in harmony or DEATH occurs. FOr instance you can tweak the genetics a bit and get different eye color. You tweak it in another place and the heart valve doesn't function right. You tweak it even more and the heart wont' develop correctly enough to even get life started! So as far as we know, as you approach the 'edge' of the dots, death and infertility happen EVERY time. So if you believed in evolutionary progression of species any more, you now know that it's purely a blind faith belief. Don't be duped by the pseudo-scientist-religious-atheists of this generation.
Solder art! from Montana. What do you think it looks like?
STUFF FOR SALE including analog synthesizers and organs!: (updated 5/23/12)
The Fender Starmaster is one of the rarest of rare in organs. I've completely repaired this one. It had some defects in the plastic top that I worked over and made it look pretty nice! The case is decent with some edged abrasions and the cover is missing one hasp which I'm looking for..and the other has the fragile part that catches broken. I'm sure an old suitcase somewhere can be scrapped for those :-). But otherwise it's all ready to go. I'd like to record some with it while it's here. The reed sounds are pretty unique and it's got a bunch of transistor filter cards under the keys. A fairly elaborate organ. I also need to make something to screw into the 'knee lever' which gives a harmonic extension that is kind of like having a filter open. Check my latest vid on the Bauer which is build very similar by Porto in Italy. Now I'm told there are more like 30 some of these. I got the pattern for the original stand and I could make a structurally superior one if anyone is interested in having a showpiece that doesn't fall apart. :-). Unfortunately the construction wasnt' great on the original as I witnessed in working on another recently in NYC area.
I've been working on things for a season and haven't sold much so I have a big bag of goodies to open up here. Most recently I completed a Gibson G101 organ that, aside from some rubs in the fabric is in really nice shape. The keys and panel and top are in awesome shape. THe case lid I fixed up so it's integrable at least but the fabric has plenty of wear. I did a goop adhesive and filler work on it and am still looking for any fabric we might recover it with on the sides to fill some gaps. But hey..it's only the top right? The instrument case is really in pretty good shape and ....I guess it's like an old pair of jeans. Given what it is. A little wear look actually gives it more character in a way :-). No cigarette burns in the keys. You'll have to add your own if you want that. Hehe. Anyway it's electronically superb now and I replaced all the key bushings so this thing is something to be sought after for sure. Those are very hard to change on these. The release envelope with reiteration is way cool sounding. I'm thinking of keeping this one if I dont' get a real good offer!
The Crumar Multiman is the first keyboard capable of mixing brass, piano/clav, and strings. I was immediately impressed by the warmth of the sounds. I really things it's one of the most undervalued string machines on the market. It uses the same initial sound generating circuitry as the famed Solina above. SAJ110 dividers. But it has a lot more stuff including a MOOG FILTER!! Yup. Crumar ripped off Bob's design like many companies (eg. the Murom radio Aelita, a russian synth setting on my own Lambda in the link above!) Anyway rather than explaining it all again just have a listen to this very unit! I've put an Orchestrator in it's place which isn't much different. They added a string timbre control and individual sliders for the piano/clavichord. But otherwise the same machine pretty much.
btw I did do the repair on the lfo :-). This one is a lot cooler looking with the quality plywood sides surrounded by the original plastic edge trim. $440
Fender CHroma Polaris - One of my favorite analog synths for performance with the pedal features and option to hold chords while soloing on a 'remnant stack' of the 6 voices (and pitch bend just the notes currently being held down plus glide!) This one is in VERY nice shape. Hard to see any flaws really. At the right angles some impression streak on the front panel in one place I see. Otherwise just tiny paint nicks and stuff probably. Looks perfect from any normal viewing distance. INCLUDES ORIGINAL MANUAL and HOLD PEDAL! $1070
Siel DK600 - YES I'm starting to fix some of these again and a very nice one is off the re-production line! All analog past the initial tone generation. The analog HF oscillators (2 ea.) drive two TOS/divider networks basically I believe in lsi chips. The square waves produced then are assigned to the synth channel that is 'next'. A saw converter then shapes using pitch CV held in the sample/hold cells typical of analog synths. (which also may be used to slop the vcf) . Then real EG, VCF and VCA chips of the ssm series of the day are programmed from the front panel knobs and switches. Three LFO circuits, so that Pitch A and/OR B can be affected by independent LFO's giving a richer sound...and a third to modulate PWM's and/or VCF! So two independent depth/speed controls plus mod wheel control options! These sound very rich and make great clav, brass sweeps and odd organs and things. Very distinct analog instruments. -$825
Sequential Circuits Split 8- I have a couple of these fixed up (one is sold). Fairly rareish japanese made 8 voice CEM3394 based units with the ability to split/layer 4 voice sections. Also polymod in layer mode. Kinda cool for a 400 dollar synth!
Yamaha DX7. The classic. The sides took a little damage but strengthened up with goop and got it all working good again. RV goop actually improves the functional strength but of course it looks a little funny close up :-). But the front is fairly decent. It's got E!, the memory 10X expansion and functionality enhancement for 380!
Ensoniq SQ1+ . Good shape. VERY easy to use sequencer! Early 90's digital sound. Good starter synth. w/soft case/manual! Also a little goop repair on a cheek corner but nothing major. -$230.00
Crumar DS-2 The original Digital oscillator synth with an extra LFO and poly section! These are flat out awesome. I have one that is rusty and I'm keeping it if someone wants to take the fairly nice one. it has no lid but it would be easy to make one for it custom. Definitely worthy of being kept in great shape! The instrumentation is cool. Look at the page for it on my global synth page above! -$1100.00
Vox Continental Organ - I'm just finishing up an American made one with great wood key action!. Drawbar tips...so rare..and these and these are in perfect shape! Rarely see them w/out cracks etc. That whole panel is near flawless. But anyway since this one was just in too decent shape to tear all the original stuff off and re-do it all I decided to spend way too much time doing goop/paint mixes and trowling it into places where there was some wood exposed/abrased. As I also did on a super continental Paul is selling now. The the GREAT thing is while if you look right at it it looks funky..it doesn't affect the practical appearance in typical lighting much at all. And it's SO much stronger now with that goop seeping into the wood and giving rubbery edges /corners! I put some new lid hinges on AND there is a NICE VOX PEDAL now I also got for it! AND a stand and CASE for the stand in decent shape! So this is a complete package now. The label on the back is fairly scratched up on back and we can of course get new ones for it so we might do that if the new owner wants. Also getting a new stand set for it. I've got it all electronically working great and playing great! So let me know if you're into the classic combo organ! Figuring getting $3000 for it all.
Crumar Composer- (SOLD!) If you've seen my video you know how awesome these are. I brought one back that has some water damage on one end but not terrible. I'd not think twice about it functionally but the one end is visibly damaged if you look. I touched up after sanding some rust along that end too. But it's an awesome sounding unit. These are so rare we can't part it out. Absolutely not for a classic rarity like this. The breath controller works great and 'touch vibrato'... Great hammond presets with leslie sim and a couple percussion footages. Rich string synth. And the phat mono synth and poly synth with curtiss CEM3320 vcf's and EG's. Certainly one of the best of the swiss army knife type synths. -$900
Technics KN750 - These are pretty rare it seems now. Not bad sounding or feeling unit! Lots of features -$150
Yamaha SK20 - I got another one in that had contacts I don't long term trust SO I decided to sell my studio SK20 that has been working great and looked better inside and I'll keep the one I tried a new contact repair method on. As you may know these are a great early 80's organ/synth combo. Lush sounding all analog synth after the initial tones that are generated using digital technology for stable oscillators. You can of course tune the parts independently and also effect modulate them with Tremolo and vibrato. Fast/slow switch AND a Leslie hookup that I need to use on mine some day. :-) I also have a couple Leslie rotors from Yamaha organs I should box up since they make a nice compact rotary speaker. Anyway say $415 on this unit in very nice shape for it's day. Typical small cosmetic issues.
Yamaha PSR-175 complete with some learning books for kids! Plus it's pre-scratched so you don't have to get mad at them when they do it! Seriously the instrument works great and these are very nice sounding for the money but someone scraped an abrasive something across the PSR175 label. Otherwise looks ok too I think. ORIGINAL BOX even. built in speakers and inexpensive key feel but good for kids to get a feel for things. Music stand included. - $65.00
17 each Mac formatSyquest 230MB cartridges. Will beat any price.
Ultimate support A-Frame stand. This holds an 88 key plus some with the current pipe lengths. Great for setting up a controller keyboard and Laptop side by side and of course one could easily build a shelf over the top using a couple support pieces that attach down a ways from the top on the rear pipe of the A frame. I just have no room for this in my setup since I already have a specialized control center pretty much with a stand I built up years ago. $40.00
Roland MKS-30 MKS30 - I always try to keep one of these around for sale and use one in my mobile rig. Great warm sounding machine. Less complex sounds than the 70, but more punchy attacks. PG300 often available on ebay. These use the valuabe JUNO modules. THe problem with buying one on ebay is...half the time you get sacked for a loss. People sell you ones with modules that go back after many hours of playing. It's happened to me multiple times as I was harvesting chips from them. This one has certifiably good lot number chips and all checks well on extended playing. - (I'm temporarily suspending sales til i can finish my memory expander for these! If you want one have me put you on the list. I'm trying to get an idea of how many to make. The problem with these is lack of storage for sounds. I figure if people had 32 or so banks of sounds with high reliability battery that recharges when powered on, they wouldn't care much anymore. Though I'm still thinking of ways to i/f with PC to get infinite storage and editability. But I think most users would prefer just reliable local storage; especially people with PG300's already!)
Heil Sound Talk box Diaphram - New. This fits the newer model The old one is different I found out the hard way so I'm stuck with this until someone needs it. -$35.00

HERE IS A LIST of stuff we just got in 4/08 from Tucson. I'll add things along the way as I test them out but the following Items I've already tested or repaired and are ready for sale. Feel free to make reasonable offers, bearing in mind that I've gone through these things to make sure typical problems like broken jack solder etc. is taken care of so they are good serviceable units unless otherwise noted.
Vox Organs, Farfisa Organs and parts! My friend Paul has purchased a large number of these units which you can see in the videos on my youtube page. Just look for "Paul's vox organ project machines" and the Farisa one next to it in the list of my videos. We did a little video overview of them to give an idea of the kind of stuff that might be purchaseable. Paul's number is 720-849-2323 and call him to negotiate pricing. Many other parts machines came in this deal and I've absorbed some of the ones that are just good for keys so see my parts page on the global synth link if you want to get parts for synthesizers in general but Paul also has a few Roland D series units, a U20...I just tested a D50 board today that works great! They key movements are of course dead on them. I'm working on a solution to restore these old rubber key contacts for good. I've had hit and miss luck with the solutions I've gotten from other places.
See the Global Synthesizer Tech assistance page and view the parts link to see lots of parts for sale including soldering supplies, semiconductors, and keys for most vintage synthesizers!
