Waldorf Blofeld Desktop & Keyboard Special Edition in Black

Waldorf is releasing my favorite hardware synthesizer in black as a limited edition. As always, I love their tongue-in-cheek marketing on this.

Deep in the subterranean Waldorf Laboratories, our scientists have finally discovered the finish that delivers the best sound. We almost had forgot about them when the resurfaced and proudly presented the result of their almost endless struggle to find the ideal material: Neither Mauve nor Lavender nor Ochre result in optimal sound, but a special electron absorbing coating in deep black.

The explanation is simple: as more absorbed electrons reach the inner digital and analog workings of Blofeld and casue each bit to be stronger pronounced, resulting in a very defined and detailled sound. This makes our new Black Blofeld sound even better than before. The new black Blofeld is produced 100% in German Schwarzarbeit and is available only on the black market.

According to a Matrix Synth post on this, this is a limited edition run of 250 units.

  1. Knowing hardware production lead times they were probably both in parallel development. Waldorf did show this off at NAMM, but had a much smaller presence at the show from what I can tell so not as much buzz was generated NAMM week.
    For me I think it’s a great marketing idea for both companies. They are both small shops and creating these collectors editions are a great way to get into the press. I hope this leads to sales for both companies to support future development.
