Retro Synth Ads
By James Grahame
Retro Synth Ads is a blog full of scanned synthesizer ads from the 1980s. I'm ashamed to admit how much I looked forward to seeing new ads for instruments I could only dream of owning as a teen.
Mr. RetroSynthAds writes, "Growing up, synthesizer advertisements were the only way for me to
find out about new synths. Gear advertised in magazines such as
Keyboard Magazine and Electronic Musician.
Its not that my local music shop didn't have knowledgeable staff, I was just scared of them until I was in my late teens.
Please join me in my infatuation with vintage synthesizers, drum machines and sampler advertising."
