Schmidt Synthesizer Available Again For 19,900 Euro

Schmidt-Synthesizer, makers of the high-end Schmidt Eight Analog Synthesizer, have announced that they are now taking orders on a third batch of 25 synths, in both black and white finishes.

Originally introduced at Musikmesse in 2011, a ‘final’ run of the Schmidt Synthesizer was announced in 2016

Schmidt-Synthesizer Product Manager Axel Fischer had this to say about the change in plans:

“Last year, we assumed that the second batch would also be the last. The Schmidt Eightvoice Analog Synthesizer’s sound engine electronics are mainly of ‘old school’ stock, with through-hole mounting technology, and pricing for those components have been rising steadily for years. Yet since the second batch of 25 units — ultimately, we ordered some extra components, so there were actually 27 — sold out within 14 months, those component prices are acceptable.”

“So, since the Schmidt Eightvoice Analog Synthesizer still enjoys serious support, we’re happy to announce that additional units of this wonderful instrument will be available in 2018. At the moment, we’re still finishing fulfilling orders for the second batch, but orders for the third batch can be placed as of now.”
