Wow, fascinating.

I must admit that I don't ever recall seeing these in the wild back in the day, although I was pretty into keyboards and synths at this time in my early 20's. I wonder if these showed up in Europe but not so much in the US?

Surely you're not taking the man seriously! He's using an X-stand.

I'm not interested in someone's ability to program. I'm interested in their ability to compose and play.

I imagine hell would be having to listen to an endless loop of this guy's "Reviews"
He lost me near the top when he made his first "wheeeeeeeeeee" sound with his voice

It's not a real Teisco. Where's the Formica pickguard?

I had one of
these as a kid in the early '60s Formica pickguard and all. Had a little Teisco transistor amp too. In fact, I was so cool that I taped pennies to the back of the amp to get a poor man's fuzz box. facepalm


Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

I've seen pictures of Teisco synths, but this is the best audio demo I've heard. Its one of THOSE instruments, often oddly seen in church basements, big 'swap meets' and the dusty back rooms of stores that mainly sell grandfather clocks and home organs. When he played that final stack mode, the real sound came out. Its clearly not broadly capable, but I'd love to sample those places where it speaks with authority.


To leave a screaming curse-fest for an 8-bit AI that will just dump it in a tertiary buffer for the NSA to review next August, press 6.

Yeah they are moving away from the association with Grandfather clocks and have rebranded with an Asian holding company that just trademarked the name "Most Randomly Fortunate Shiny Metal Award Pin Happy Keyboard Inc."
