Crumar Bit One Synthesizer

Built like a tank, I love this synth. It’s really weird. Mine stands out a bit because it was actually shot with a .22 pistol (long story.. don’t ask). The bullet just bounced off this beast. In fact, you have to look hard to see the damage. I’ll give you a hint. It’s under F6.

Sadly, my Bit One has electronic issues (not related to the drive by shooting). It used to work, then it didn’t work right, then it got shot. I fully planed on having this beast repaired one day – but got tired of packing it around. So I sold it.
