arp_oddy“Up for sale is an amazing Arp Odyssey 2800 in 100% operating condition and is extremely clean inside and out. This is a beautiful piece which has been previously restored and serviced and has been in my personal collection. All sliders, switches, knobs, keys and jacks work flawlessly. This Odyssey is truly amazing sounding and a pleasure to play in it’s restored state. I play it frequently and can assure you each and every function works as it should. The tuning is stable instantly with hardly any warm up time which is a great characteristic of these oscillators and rare for an old analog synth. This is the only way to experience the Odyssey and truly appreciate how great it is. I will pack this very carefully insured for a safe journey but this auction is for USA only.

Here are the details of what was done when I first got it about a year ago.

Everything was meticulously cleaned by hand during the restoration. Sliders were dismantled, cleaned, polished, lubed, tested and only the best internals were used resulting in an accurate and perfectly smooth operation. All original Arp slider caps are included! Each switch was cleaned and slightly lubed. Old capacitors and some other old components were replaced then the synth was calibrated giving you a reliable Arp that sounds crisp, clear and full of tone. The keybed was also restored, keys cleaned, buss bars and spring contacts polished, key heights leveled, and new key bushings installed so the action is like new and all keys trigger perfectly.” Link

ARP, Solus @ 27 May 2015, “No Comments”

solusArp Solus in very good condition. Normal wear and tear, but exceptionally clean for a unit that is 35 years old. Purchased in 1980, I am the original purchaser of this unit. It was retired from live performance in 1985. It was serviced within the last 6 months by a nationally recognized vintage synth tech. The unit has been updated to the last factory spec released for the Solus model. All functions are working at full factory spec, although the CV, Trig, and Gate I/O has not been tested by me personally. Sliders all working, although several can be somewhat stiff until they have been worked in for a bit. All keys respond as new. Like most analog synths it takes a few minutes to warm up. Much, if not all of the original documentation is included with the unit, operation manual, tablet to record patches, Arp users list, and list of Arp representatives in the US.” Link

arp solus” This synth is in good shape. It’s been in storage and would still benefit from a service. Listening through headphones on a couple of the sliders there’s a bit of static when shifting settings. Typical for a synth this age.” Link

2600“You are bidding on an ARP 2600 Synthesizer. I had this unit serviced by Phil Cirocco at CMS about 8 years ago.. .. The Keyboard has a few issues with pitch on some of the keys so i haven’t been using it much. It comes with lids for the main unit and keyboard but they seem to have been from a different era 2600.. they fit but the latches don’t exactly line up.. The synth sounds wonderful and everything works perfectly.. I’ve used this in my studio for the past 15 years and it always does that magical thing that 2600′s do… the CMS upgrades give you tons of other options for creating sounds…I’ll throw in the Kenton Pro 2000 cv to midi unit with this auction” Link

matrix6 “Fully functional Oberheim Matrix 6 with hard shell SKB case and the newer EPROM 2.13. Printed and bound User manual and Service manual.

Fully passes Calibration and Tuning tests (see photo’s)

All features work and the case fits it like a glove.

No noticed issues inside, (see photo’s) power supply etc. all look good.

A few minor paint scrapes and there are three cosmetic dings that I mention because that is what I would want if I were buying it (see photo’s)

One “gash” on the label board (does not effect anything just looks).
Two keys, one white, one black were hit by a cigarette and that put a dent in them (they function perfectly and the dent is not where you play.
And one key has a very small chip on the end.” Link

xpander “I have just had this synth painstakingly cleaned to get rid of any dust or finger funk. As you can see it comes in excellent used condition for its age. Take a look at the photos as it will come as shown. ” Link

pulse“Here is my Waldorf Pulse, which I’m selling because I have too much synths.
Its working condition is flawless. Its cosmetic condition is good, safe for a few marks you can see on the pictures.” Link

`se1x “ABOUT THIS UNIT: Started life as normal SE-1 and went back to Analogia down the street here for a full rebirth as an “X” model. Only thing I didn’t swap out was the backplane – so it stills says SE1 on back. But new internals, audio input, display, new filter, overdrive/fuzz circuit like the CODE, new “RED EYE” faceplate, etc. Less than 50 hours use since its rebirth, so it’s very much “like new” as the X model.

Why Selling?

Spring cleaning stuff I bought over past several years and have not used much. Had influx of income for a few years and bought something like 50 synths and keyboards, and with my lack of time, I end up maybe using five of them. So, am cleaning house.

Condition:

Minty fresh condition from Analogia; only remnant of the old box is the back case (basically the outer case except front panel is from old synth; everything else new; typical rack scratches and such). Smoke free, pet free home studio; gear never gigged, loaned, rented; never thrown around like a juggler on crack; never ever left out in the rain as part of a cake, etc.

AUCTION INCLUDES:

Studio Electronics SE-1X “RED EYE”

Original box; factory manual.

Power cord.

(NOTE: will ship in larger box; won’t ship in the manufacturer box like Analogia did when shipping back to me; so double boxed!)” Link

z3k“You are bidding on a Tiptop Audio Z3000 Smart VCO mk2. I am the original owner and have had this item around a year.

This module needs a eurorack power source not included with this auction.” Link

Baldwin @ 26 May 2015, “No Comments”

baldwin ” Here’s a rare Baldwin synthesizer from the 70′s. Main issue is that the keyboard is not responding, but I was able to plug a guitar into the external input and do some limited testing.

It’s missing various push button caps, some broken push button and slider stems/posts (but all sliders and buttons work), . External input/output works. Oscillator makes sound with trigger bar, responds to tuning slider, octave, and tremolo adjustment. Most things seem to work except for the keyboard which offers no response. Flute section responded to trigger bar, but no I didn’t get any response from the preset section. Missing faceplate/keyboard hold down screws.” Link

All keys are operational and were checked via MIDI. .
There is a low noise coming from the audio out but its not too bad when its being played.
This is listed “as is” due to my limited testing ability and the age of the unit. ” Link

cz1k“Nice entry package to the world of Phase Distortion…

Perfectly working Casio CZ-1000. Adding a RA-3 Cartridge with 16 additional more analogish presets. Plenty life left in the battery of the RAM card.
The second and third picture show that the cartridge works – the number of the respective preset shown on the display corresponds to the number of the lit up membrane button.

Included is a non-OEM power supply. The original Casio AD-5 was lost during a move. Its a 9V 850mA, tip negative. Mine only sports 800 mA but it works fine. I’ve seen CZ-1000 paired with 800mA’s

Noticeable cosmetic drawbacks are a chip under one of the white keys (pic 6), mildly peeling membrane button overlay on the right corner (pic 5). Not shown are a few scratches on the bottom plate.
The battery compartment is clean and works well if loaded with six D’s. I used that way quite often.

The manual folder is a collection of helpful files found online. There are plenty of them. You can also find sysex files to load to the internal memory (which is currently empty).

I strongly recommend the book “An Insider’s Guide to Casio CZ Synthesizers” by Andrew Schlesinger which, for some reason, can be found in pdf format when looked for on the web.” Link

bitoone“Up for Auction is a Crumar Bit One synth. The sound of the synth is somewhat in the range of the Juno 106 and was out around the same time. There is a write up you will find on this synth at the vintagesynth site.

This one is cosmetically clean, however it has some issues that will need to be addressed by a tech:

The synth powers on fine but the audio output is somewhat low and noisy, specifically via the phones jack.
The internal battery has long since died and will need to be replaced. As a result the patches are all scrambled.
The panel buttons seem somewhat sticky to respond when selecting patches and editing.
I found when attempting to edit patches that they keyboard will simply freeze after a few minutes. I would imagine this is a power supply issue and can probably be fixed pretty easily.
Unfortunately the keys have yellowed somewhat, which is probably can only be fixed by replacing them.

As you can see from one of the photos even the underside of this keyboard is relatively free of scratches and there are no dents of any kind, which is pretty amazing for a synth that is 30 years old.” Link

Synthesizer comes with a new flight case and manual. This is unit #10 out of 25 units planned for production. Including $500 shipping costs and $1200 in custom/duties fees, I paid over $21K for this unit. A new unit even with the favorable exchange rate today will run you about $19,300 with shipping and duties.

If you are reading this and a serious buyer, then you already know about this synth and have heard sounds files( Google EMC Schmidt).” Link
