Clavioline by Selmer

Thought you might like to see this thing.
Needs a special power supply which I'm trying to trace, it's gonna be a problem!
It's complete with the stand and brackets for fixing to a piano.

Oh, wow!! That is so cool.... Now, I'm sure I saw one of these - or something quite like it - on a video clip from the 60s recently; can't recall who it was. Would Gary Brooker have used one???

Orphan power supply, eh? Is it something that can be modified for a modern design?

So you found a power supply? I'd've loved to have heard a sound clip....

Hells teeth... LA?! What was postage on that?!?

Wasn't a member here early on part of Devos recent-ish touring set-up?!
