This Vacuum Tube Synthesizer From The 1950s Sounds Incredible
In this video from YouTuber HAINBACH, we get acquained with the Hohner Electronium Tube, a vacuum tube synthesizer from the 1950s.
From the video’s description, he explains:
In which I demonstrate one of the most beautiful instruments I ever had the pleasure of playing, the Hohner Electronium. Made by Hohner in the 1950s, this vacuum tube synth in Akkordeon form packs a deep bass and a rather poetic midrange. The German avantgarde of the time quickly discovered it, Stockhausen used the Model Pi (piano version), and Harald Boje played a modified version. You can hear it in Stockhausen’s Telemusik and certain versions of Spiral.
