ARP, Odyssey @ 28 September 2016, “No Comments”

oddy “This ARP Odyssey is, as you see, the first whiteface version** which is by far the most desirable. Having the legendary, extreme, and unique sounding 4023 filter. It has had at least a couple major servicings and highly desirable mods. First, from CMS who are FAR AND AWAY the leaders in working on these ARP systems. The CV/Gate mods were installed so that this can be controlled by other synths, and the External Audio Input so that other instruments can be run through the filter. The second major servicing and mod was performed by another very prominent tech in the vintage synth community. This mod I think is very unique among Odysseys that you will see. ARP has the duo-phonic feature that will assign the two oscillators to the highest and lowest note you play. Which is great. Sometimes, however, you want to treat it as a monosynth, and with your playing style it’s a little bit of a pain that it triggers the two notes. This switch disables the two-note tracking/assignment and lets it play as a true monosynth.

In both of these services, electronic rehab and tuning were done, and complete disassembly and cleaning of the sliders. It has had another tune/checkup done about a year ago, which included replacement of some of the sliders. The sliders move freely and are not stiff, but frankly you can hear a little scratch again on some of them. I am also going to claim that, after shipping, you should plan to tune it again. But other than that it is in excellent shape electronically. Cosmetically, it’s a solid 9 out of 10 if not 9.5, with a few marks that are tiny, small places the silkscreen is fading, etc.

Other functional aspects, the key action is good, as are the two-position switches. The octave selector is supposed to do +/- 0, 1, or 2 octaves up or down. The détente-ing is a little flaky so it really only does normal and one up, one down. HOWEVER, I am providing a NOS (NEW OLD STOCK) extra octave selector switch with this auction. It seems to work well flipping it with your fingers, but I can’t guarantee the result when you install it. Again, it has never been used!

Other extras include a plastic fitted see through dust cover, custom made for this Odyssey. This is awesome to have because you need a dust cover to keep the sliders from getting junk in them, yet in your studio you want the synths to be visible when you’re hanging out, not buried under opaque covers. Finally, the synth comes with a medium duty flight case. It will be packed inside that with bubble wrap to keep from moving around, and then double-boxed outside it with a ton more bubble wrap in between. You can check my feedback and bid with confidence, I’ve bought and sold tons of vintage synths and am just pruning the collection a little bit as I get older.” Link

dx “Oberheim DX programmable vintage drum machine. Classic 80′s sound.

DX has some cosmetic issues. Mainly one knob that looks like it was replaced but does not affect function. I plugged it in an got sounds out of all of the pads except for the Medium Bass button. It may need to be cleaned. I’m not sure how it all works. Old school lo-fi technology. There are individual knobs on the back that allow you to tune the drum sounds individually. In the hands of a real musician this may be the thing you need. I don’t know how to program it but there are manuals available online for free in .pdf form.

It has MIDI in/out – as well as mix outputs

It comes with the power cord” Link

It also comes with the rare and highly coveted filter cutoff pedal, and the cover/lid that protects the top of the instrument. There are some minor knicks and scratches here and there (see pics) but overall it is in great condition for its age.” Link

plumbutter ” This is one phenomenal instrument. It lives and breathes a beautiful sound of its own. Out of everything I have to sell to go to Vet school this is the one piece I still want to hang on to.

I had this plugged into a Strymon Timeline and Bluesky and the results are literally awesome. There’s some patch sheets on Muffwiggler that got me started and then I just got into it from there.

I got this brand new earlier in the year and it still smells like fresh cut wood – awesome!

It comes complete with a stereo output jack, power supply and 26 PVC stacking banana plugs (various lengths) from Test Path so you’ll have everything you need to plug and play right away.

This is the ticket to unique one-of-a-kind sounds, atmospheres and drones in your music and film scores.” Link

Casio, CZ-101 @ 27 September 2016, “No Comments”

101 “This Casio CZ-101 needs some work, please read carefully. I didn’t list it for parts/not working because it does turn on and will produce sound. However, there is something wrong with the outputs – neither the Line Out nor the Headphone output works as it should. This is probably a relatively easy fix for somebody handy with a soldering iron. All I can tell you is that I am able to get the Line Out to function, but only if the 1/4″ plug is held at an angle when in the jack (see pics). I have not had the same luck with the Headphone output, however there is a very faint signal present with the volume all the way up.

There are a couple of other issues with this CZ-101 that I have tried to document in the pics. You will see that one of the keys is chipped, and another one lifts up. Notice also that the volume slider is slightly bent. This fortunately has never affected the functionality (the slider works as intended). There is also a fairly deep scratch towards the right side of the unit, shown in one of the pics.

Otherwise, everything works, and I have to say, this CZ-101 carries an easter egg or two, but maybe this synth’s “quirks” are common knowledge at this point.

I am selling this unit as-is, so make sure you know what you’re getting into if you bid. Also included will be one cartridge and a 9VDC adapter.” Link

MG-1, Moog @ 26 September 2016, “No Comments”

used-moog-mg-1 “I have replaced all of the sliders and switches on the panel. I have not replaced the rotary pots. All sliders have their original tops but some are missing the silver inset. 99% of the foam has been REMOVED. It’s almost impossible to get all of it out. I used a razor blade to scrape the inside of the panel to try and remove as much as I could. I used some thinner to remove debris where I scraped. The rotary pots have a little foam on then, I removed as much as I could within reason. I also cleaned the board with some iso-2 very carefully to remove foam and dirt. I did not remove a small amount of rosin solder flux since it’s not corrosive and non-conductive. This can be done without removing the board. I have not done any calibration on the system. The manual is free online and has the correct procedure for this task. The synth sounds fine as it is, so I don’t see any reason why it would need it right now. Pictures below show the progress of the restoration on 9/25/16.

I was employed as a solder-smith many years ago and have soldered thousands of parts, mainly Intel mainframes to mil spec. For the last 34 years I have been in the telephone business and have soldered hundreds (thousands?) of switches, relays, chips, etc. I have also built microphones professionally where soldering must be very precise. I used 60% leaded solder on this restoration because I think it looks and lasts longer.

Everything works well for a 36 year old synthesizer. There are some cosmetic issues and one base plate screw point is missing (I have the screw, but the plastic is missing) there is a key with a chip in it. A bent corner on base plate. There is some surface rust on the inside back of panel and around the jacks. This does not affect functionality.” Link

Also, I added a 1/4″ audio out jack to the back of the synth. Consequently it has no headphone out, but it’s much easier to use in most circumstances now. Just plug into an amp and play.” Link

This is an amazing sounding original Minimoog Model D. I have owned it for more than 20 years, where it lived in a recording studio.

This has the desirable Old Oscillator boards, renowned as the “fattest/best” sounding of the minimoogs, compared to later versions.

Serial #4199. Dated 1974.

It is in fantastic, fully working condition and excellent cosmetic condition, showing typical signs of age and patina on the wood as expected from a 1970′s instrument, as shown in photos.

It has just had a full professional service by The Analog Lab, New York.

This is the list of what the service includes:

Full calibration/tuning, Keyboard levelled and re-bushed, All pots and connectors cleaned, Power supply and DeCoupling re-capped. Playing/Audio functionality good.” Link

CR-8000, Roland @ 25 September 2016, “No Comments”

cr8 “This drum machine was used as accompaniment for an acoustic guitar player in the early 1980′s. It has since been stored away for a number of years. I got it about 10 years ago from the original owner as part of a purchase of all his gear. Unfamiliar with it, and no need for it, I put it away and never used it.

I plugged it in and tried the buttons, turned knobs, and messed around with the sounds and everything seemed to work. The only issue I could find was the Bank Selector 2 button (yellow) would not activate by pushing it directly. It does work when you slide your finger from either of the other bank Selector buttons. My guess is it needs to be cleaned, maybe just needs using, maybe there is another button I needed to has in play. I have adjusted my starting price in consideration. Otherwise this is a nice example of the CR8000 machine.” Link
