CLAVIOLINES

Postby SPACE BABES » Fri Sep 14, 2012 1:30 pm

Anyone remember the old claviolines. The Tornado's used one on Telstar and a modified version was used on the Del Shannon hit, Runaway. I now have a collection of eight and they are all being restored. Iused one in the 1960's when I played Telstar and I now use one on my instrumental albums. See www.chestnutbankproductions.co.uk. There is a full page dedecated to the vintage keyboard. There is also a page for ex Joe Meek artist, Dave Kaye, who I toured with in the early 1970's when we played at the Elvis UK Fan Club Conventions world wide. :PDT_20:

Hi SB, are you interested in obtaining another vintage synth, a Korg MS20, as new condition, still boxed? I also have a Juno6.

Korg MS20 demo. This is a demo of some of the infinite number of sounds it can make, not a musical demo.

I use the claviolines because of the Joe Meek connection and Telstar. The one you mention has some great sounds and I am sure that if Meek had been around at the time, he would have used one. The problem with any old keyboard is when they go wrong. Repairs are so expensive and many spares impossible to obtain. If you would like to e mail me details it may be something to consider. Address on the web site. I can also put details on the Sale page of my web site for you.

Selmer Clavioline I used on Telstar and many other Meek instrumentals, including my own.

Just noticed this. I remember them. Didn't think there would be any survivors.

Still one or two keep cropping up. At the moment I have five but apart from the one I use in my studio for using on my Meek/Tornado style instrumentals, the others will be sold when serviced. Full details of claviolines on my web page http://www.chestnutbankproductions.co.uk/claviolines If you want to hear one of the very first electronic instruments (clavioline) to be used on a record, listen on You Tube to FRANK CHACKSFIELDS LITTLE RED MONKEY. Sounds weird for it's day. :blob4:
