SYNTH GEMS 1 – Exploring Vintage Synthesizers: The Rare, The Odd, and The Awesome. The latest publication in Kim Björn’s brilliant book series takes you on a tour of over 60 remarkable keyboards — large and small, famed and rare, elegant, beautiful, and brutal… and ranging from classics that define entire genres to rare oddities that bring their own grace to the world.
This first part of SYNTH GEMS comprises 320 pages, countless first-class pictures, and a foreword by Vince Clarke. It’s a real “must-have” …
The cover picture is remarkable (we like it a lot)! It show neither the Minimoog, nor the Jupiter-8, no … it shows a Crumar DS-2. How briliant to introduce the secret treasures of the vintage corner with an Italian suitcase synthesizer!
SYNTH GEMS 1 will be released in the EU on October 1st, 2021. The launch in the US, UK and the rest of the world will be on November 1st. Price is 69 USD.
