GUEST,TB Very cheap keyboard - suggestions? (81* d) RE: Very cheap keyboard - suggestions? 23 Jan 10

Wowza wowza - I knew it was more than a ton, but....!

Got mine for 99 in about 79. Was so desperate to have a proper synth that I traded in a nice Farfisa worth about 300, (which was enough to buy a small house in some parts then). It was the hook-cooker (wizzes, fizzes, pops and snaps) on our infamous Christmas not-hit of err 81? Pete Waterman had sneaked it onto the Radio 1 playlist, and both Bates and Reid had promised to plug it (or so I heard) but the band imploded and we missed the deadline. What price a Wasp that went to No 1?

Stylophone is a replacement. The original went missing due to progeny. Used to play it in a wonderful punk version of Fireball XL5 sequing into Telstar, which I seem to remember involved me climbing the PA stack while plying with one hand...

Can you give me a link to the sprung harmonium. Does it play continuously (for continuo? ;-) like a shruti?
