Star Industries Synare 3 PS3 - Drum Percussion Synthesiser.
Rare, vintage, UFO looking drum machine. The Synare 3 was producded from the late 70's until the early 80's. It is a well built drum pad, it’s in a good, solid case and the control layout is very friendly. It was made in The USA by Star Instruments Inc. "It was used in many, many songs – The crack sounds in Gary Numan’s Cars, Joy Division’s She’s Lost Control, Devo’s Whip It, Kim Carnes’ Betty Davis Eyes and The Cars’ Let’s Go are a few examples. Ultravox’s Vienna uses the Synare for several different sounds throughout the piece" (Text from "Secret life of Synthesisers") other notable users include Jean Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode and Herbie Hancock.
- This is a used unit.
- This Synare 3 has been serviced. It is working as it should. It definitely can produce those classic 80's drum sounds.
- This unit is triggered by hitting it with sticks.
- This unit shows obvious signs of wear. Mostly where the black finish has come off. The knobs are not original. Please see all photos for further details.
Please be aware this unit powers off two 9V batteries. You must remove the top section of the drum machine by taking out the three screws. Snap the 9V batteries in and place them into their holders, and then screw it back together. The Synare 3 has a power saving feature within its circuits so you do not have to take the batteries out when you are not using it.
- You may notice the unit is sitting on a small metal plate in the photos. It was just so the Synare would stand up straight. The Silver drum mounting bracket is included, the small metal plate is for demonstation purposes only and it is not included in the sale.
