Analog BBQ 2

After Analog BBQ 1 in 2009, synth collector and musician Thomas P. Heckmann invited us (Michael Buchner, Oli Rubow and me) to combine a fine BBQ afternoon (with hex shaped slices of cucumber) with a guided tour through his forrest of vintage synthesizers. A really impressive conglomerate of electronics… It’s a pleasure to share some impressions:

hex shaped cucumber


Simmons salad


BBQ master Thomas “at work”


Simmons wall lamp


Oli trying a Syndrum


Thomas demonstrating one of his countless magic add-ons


Michael (can’t hide his true emotions)


Genesis’ SDSV


The “Simmons corner”


about 5% of Thomas’ Star Wars collection

Thanks to Thomas and his girl friend Natasha who have been great hosts!

    Hi there,

    Love your sight, really cool! If i’m not going totally mad I’m pretty sure I can see and SDSV that used to belong to me quite a few years ago… The SDSV is the one you are calling the Genesis… Can you tell us a little bit about it? I also owned an SDSV at the time that was half musicaid i.e. it had some modules that were musicaid and I seem to remember the casing was also musicaid.

    I don’t have a SDSV anymore, big regret! I do though own a couple of SDS7’s as once owned by the late great Eric Carr. I also have an SDS9 and a SDE.

    Love the Simmons gear, great stuff!
