The Hartmann 20 is about to go into production and looks to start shipping by the end of June 2016.

We first had word of Alex Hartmann's new project last year. Finally, his vision has been realised in a limited run synthesizer that will set you back €20,000. More pictures surfaced early this year of a raw milled-aluminum bodied synth that certainly looked rather eye-catching.

The synth is built around StudioLogic's Waldorf-derived Sledge engine and will feature an all-black Fatar keybed with aftertouch. A total of 40 units will be released - 20 black and 20 silver-finished models - hopefully by the end of this month.

More information on the Hartmann 20 can be found on the 20 Electronics Facebook page.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
