I put my Gibson Clavioline on eBay yesterday. My back room is full of keyboards to fix, I just bought an expensive piece of gear (and several cheap pieces), need to replenish the hobby money and I just don’t see myself getting around to fixing this thing any time soon.
The Clavioline is basically a primitive mono synthesizer with presets and some variations on each preset. The chassis was designed to bolt under the keyboard of a piano, to give the piano player a little something extra in the sound generating department. ‘Runaway’, ‘Telstar’ and ‘Baby, You’re a rich man’ are the most famous instances of Clavioline in popular music.
Simple as that. Rocker switch toggles for tone presets, effects etc, sliders for octave I believe and sprung plastic keys.
