It is important not to lose sight of the artisanal character of the instrument and of the company Baloran SAS: A major breakdown will be fully covered, transport costs included up to 220€ per trip (440€ per return trip), the rest will be charged to the customer. The import taxes claimed by customs upon return of the instrument will be charged to the customer.

For the USA / CAN market, the instruments are equipped with a 110V / 120V power supply.

If these conditions do not seem acceptable to you, which I readily understand, please do not order The River.

Review of the Baloran The River and Award (excellent sound examples)

THE RIVER – this French masterpiece – is an elemental SOUND force. And an instrument with great technical finesse. For about 5,500 Euros you get a fabulously good and powerful sounding 8-voice analog synthesizer. A representative of that rare species of real analog mega-synths that can sweep the listener away. Individual voice adjustment (volume, pan, transposition) has massive acoustic sound potential of which only a few synthesizers in history have been capable.

Baloran THE RIVER – an elemental SOUND force (very nice demos)

Plus
+ hervorragender Analogsound
+ übersichtliche Bedienung der Klangerzeugung
+ authentischer Moog Source Sound
+ umfangreiche CV/Gate-Anschluss-Sektion
Minus
+ Bedienung des River Key Managements sehr komplex
