Yamaha CSDX. For those who love the DX1 but just want something a bit less common... :headbang:

Although if someone would pick up a Kurzweil Audio Elite for me, I'd gratefully accept it...

Swarmatron, for people who want a wasp nest in the roof but can't afford the upkeep.

Now that is weird.... love it

This is pretty weird too. It’s a bayan synth - a bayan is a kind of Russian accordion

Just discovered a site- it’s a catalogue of Soviet synthesisers called Ruskeys.net

This one is quite special. Notice the grouping of black keys on the small keyboard- they come in fives!

I'd just like to point out that the Thunderchild is the reason that I'm currently not talking to Chevvy! How dare he have one and not let me play with it - criminal!

I'm also not letting the fact that he sold it before he knew me stand in the way of a perfectly good strop!!!

I’d like to say something, but I can’t, I’ve never played any unique synthesisers.
Taurus, Pro Soloist, they aren’t unique, I guess truly unique would be DIY, or in a way, modular.
