8 note polyphonic synthesizer. One of only 2000 manufactured in the early 1980's, if you are interested in this one you will most probably know much more about them than me however you can read all about them if you click here. The link will take you to a 27 year old article in Sound on Sound which refers to the value of a used Chroma at £1,500, those were the days, to put things into perspective a German owner recently advertised a faulty one on eBay at £15,000 so our valuation of £7,000 for a fully working model seems exceptionally fair. No offers please.
The Rhodes Chroma was never fitted with Midi during manufacture but it was possible to fit a Midi modification. When this one came in it had a fault which was caused by the Midi mod which no longer worked, during the service of the Chroma Adrian removed the faulty Midi kit and made other repairs so it is now 100% however the non-functioning midi sockets are still fitted to the unit.
There are a number of excellent videos on You Tube featuring the Chroma but which are too long to be loaded onto this page, here is a shorter video which demonstrates some of the excellent sounds available.
