Restoration Status: Currently Being restored by KSR.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): December 2012

Remarks: We like to mix things up a bit from time to time and offer some unusual instruments so when this Powertran Transcendent Polysynth came to our attention, we snapped it up.

Designed by Tim Orr and featured as Kit built synth in the 1981 Edition of Electronics Today International magazine, this 4 note polyphonic evolution of Transcendent (2000) family actually uses Curtis (CEM) chipset tech and sounds really good!

Okay, it might look a little clunky and quirky but the reason we like it is the sound it produces, and a Curtis based polysynth for under a £1000 has to be worth a look. We’ll try and get some video, or at least some sound samples done for you, but you’re going to be impressed!

Cosmetically, this example is in great shape and was built but a skilled tech buy the look of it. KSR will be fully overhauling the synth so everything is going to be addressed, including rebuilding the key-bed etc. so this synth is going to shine and sing like new.

Guide Price Post-Restoration: £940 UK Pounds

Availability: This Powertran Transcendent Polysynth is now SOLD as at 9th February 2013
