Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!

Cutting a fine figure in his leather pants, Martin Hollinger, the museumsbesitzer of the Synthorama Synthesizer Museum literally chortles with amusement that all you little people could ever aspire to owning something only meant for the True Moog User.



Martin has quite a collection, including what is pictured at left, the Moog Modular Vocoder. There are, AFAIK, only two of these. Here is a picture of either the other one, or the same one in a different locale. Martin also enjoys windsurfing, playing the sackbut with his schlagga band, and lording it over the Little People with his extensive collection, which includes, in no particular order, a clear Gleeman Pentaphonic, an acyrilic OSCar, a complete Roland System 100, a Wurlitzer Sideman (the first drum machine), a grey _and_ blue-faced 2600 pair, and pretty much everything else, ever.


I should note at this point that I don't speak a lick of German, other than knowing what a schlagga band is, so I may have been fibbing about the windsurfing thing. A little poetic license. But the nicest part about the pictures of Synthorama are that there isn't a single Mackie mixer in sight. This doesn't mean that there isn't one there, of course. But if I can't see it, then that's half the battle.


The link to this site was provided by Maxime, via Tom from MusicThing. So thank them for making you feel like less of a person. It's really not my fault after all.

Consider yourself clicked.

But how can you be industrial if you don't speak a lick of German?

On the one hand, it would be nice to own that gear, but on the other, would I have to dress that gay too if I did?

I'll tell you what. If you had gear that fly, you could dress however you wanted.

What happened? Kenny G lawsuit? Or did I just dream that whole thing?

G**gle sent me a letter saying that I wasn't playing fair. I had to remove all mentions of the clickin' from my site or face the Wrath. So you didn't dream it.

Actually, the picure you linked as being "either the other one [Moog vocoder], or the same one in a different locale", seems to be "the same one from a different angle", actually...
