 Make Formant
 Model Formant Modular
 Description This is a Formant-based modular system consisting of 4 modular cases. They were made in 2017 and are completely analogue, utilizing the Formant technique with new components. These modulars are truly unique, rare and perfectly functioning, and they were made by Jos van Ras (as indicated by the logo labels on the cases). Each case comes with its own 220V power supply, which means that they can also be used separately. In consideration of space and weight, the cases were designed to be less deep (all 20 cm) and tall, making them more manageable. Additionally, these cases are also in good condition.
