“Hello Up for auction is a vintage ARP Quartet synthesizer. It has been tested and does work. It has some marks/pitting but it’s old so it’s to be expected. This is a great synthesizer, and a great deal!” Link
“Amazing sounding instrument! It’s very full sounding when you get to layering. Overall the condition is good, some nicks and a random chip on the back, a little dust here and there. Keys feel phenomenal and buttery, all keys will fire. Wood sides a little nicked up, the bottom is little nicked and scratched as well. The high and low output was tested, works fine. The power switch is a little knocked up, but it will power on and work just fine. Will need to replace eventually. The angle stands on the bottom work great. Overall all the different instruments in the orchestra sound great and will be modified by their respective sound modifiers. Volume slider is a tad bit touchy, it can really jump on you. Not a lot of scratching in any sliders. Buttons trigger fine without needing to mash into it at all. Tuning works. ” Link
” Classic vintage synth with slight wear and tear (a few missing knobs, controls still work–in pics)
Great opportunity for a tune-up and quick re-sell, or, to enjoy on your own!
Sold as is.” Link
“ARP ODYSSEY MK ll MODEL No 2813 ..this is a mid 70′s Synth in amazing condition , it has very few marks and can only be described as excellent cosmetically , it’s been carefully stored and has had no use for the past 20 years , brought out recently, tested and played, it works great …all sliders ,switches ,keys and buttons do what they should , it sounds big fat and powerfull but unlike modern synths you have to know what you are doing with it to get it to perform properly ,,, bear in mind also that it’s 40 years old and totally original,,, a service would probably be a good idea….if you are looking at this I don’t need to tell you how rare it is here in the UK especially in such great condition ” Link
I bought new in `77 and used for about 6 months.Originally designed for guitar but when midi is added can be used with midi capable keyboards. Same sound engine as Arp Odyssey. A great addition to your rig for those retro sounds. Also includes guitar pickup assembly. Missing some slider tips which were cheap and easily broken in two from normal use.
I used and had fun with it around the house and some studio work, but when I used it on a couple of gigs I found it impractical because of time consuming chore of changing sounds. It`s not like modern synths “push one button” for a new patch. Therefore it went in the closet and I removed PU from my guitar and it`s been there since.
When I decided to sell it I realized I had no way to test it personally without paying a tech, which I didn`t want the expense, or reinstalling the PU, which I also didn`t want to do.It worked fine the last time I used it and other than the missing slider tips I noticed the sliders were not smooth. I`ve seen a wide variety of prices online and it`s original cost was rather high. I wished I had waited for Roland to come through with my present guitar synth rig. I`m selling as-is and can`t give any further info that I know of about it.” Link

“This rare vintage Synare S3X by Star Instruments is in good working condition. Includes a copy of the Synare S3X manual, 1/4 inch cable, Drum sticks, and universal power adapter. The type of power adapter that comes included with this drum usually comes with multiple tips to fit a variety of different devices. I have included its appropriate tip and have taped it to the cord to prevent loss. Although the power adapter is not the original Synare power adapter it is fully functional. Drum pad is aging and creates white dust. Please review pictures and see condition. Item is in great condition, works, and ready for use.” Link

“Hello today I am selling a synth. This item turns on but plays out of key in the front panel buttons do not work. I believe there is something wrong inside but I do not want to waste my time to fix if you have any questions feel free to contact me.” Link
“Turned it on twice, Used for under 5 minutes total. Battery is good, Knobs and buttons all work, Basically brand new without packaging.” Link
“A6 in near perfect condition. There’s a slight crack in the casing below the Alesis logo on the left side of the keyboard that in no way affects performance. It was serviced 4 years ago and has been in storage ever since. I’m the original owner and it has been kept in a smoke environment and has only been moved 3 times since its purchase.” Link

16 step sequencer, and sequencer expander

Sample and hold
Utility 1 modual
Cv buffer mixer
Vca /ring modulator
All in a beautiful walnut case.” Link
What makes this one special:
117v power set for USA, very rare since most of these are European set 220v.
This is an early unit serial number 705 (I believe they started at 700 so if that’s true then this is the 5th one built).
Functional: 100% fully functional. Everything is working as it should, performs superbly. All keys trigger perfectly, the keyboard plays smoothly, pots are scratchy free and turn easily and smooth.
Cosmetics: Besides a few minor nicks in the wood, the front panel and internal electronics look mint like new shape. What’s so incredibly is that is looks like it was never even touched or played, and most likely kept unused sitting in its case all these years. Take a look at the detailed pictures below including the internal pictures to make sure you like it. The internals look perfect like new with no layers of grim or dust, and the panel graphics are crisp and easy to read without finger smudges or wear. This Synthex has not been abused and used with rust and dying parts like you might find on other old synths, this is a gem ready to last another 40 years!
Sound: The Synthex one of the legendary great polysynths with huge thick analog pads. So warm and creamy. The build quality is incredible, big knobs & high quality wood. The sound is amazing, huge lush analog awesomeness. In my opinion sounds better than a SCI Prophet 5 & as a polysynth second only to perhaps the Yamaha CS80. ” Link
“This is a vintage Moog Multimoog Analog Synthesizer. Excellent condition, very clean, minimal wear. Fantastic & powerful analog synthesis with an incredible Sample & Hold, plus the filter on this synth sounds really gorgeous. All functions work perfectly except: I cannot get any sounds to change using the Amount Knob or Effect Switch in the Keyboard Touch section, they may not be operable or I’m not doing something correctly. So selling as-is, as described at a nice price.
The Destination knob in that section does work as does everything else on the synth & it is stable & sounds fantastic !” Link
“Bidding on a vintage 1980 Moog Opus 3. I am selling it for my dad, it belonged to him. He has since downsized and can no longer store it. All pictures are of the actual unit. All parts are original. At this time it turns on and the red power indicator lights up. We can hear some faint sound from the keyboard when we press the keys, but it does not amplify . We took it to a Sam ash (service tag still on unit) but they did not have a Moog certified technician to fix the problem. They believe it needs a new oscillator. It is being sold as is / for parts because of this operating issue.” Link
“The Rogue Moog model 342A just serviced new sync switch installed tuned cleaned ready to go. Power Supply not included!” Link
Has been fully tested and works great
Excellent condition with no missing parts. Also comes in original box with original paperwork. The box itself shows damage but machine was always stored in plastic and a controlled environment. This machine is a 10 out of 10 absolutely flawless and in perfect condition. You will not find a better machine them this. ” Link
“This listing is for a Used-Vintage 1980′s Realistic by Moog MG-1 Concertmate Analog Synthesizer. This synth was made by Moog for Realistic-Radio Shack in the early 1980′s. This analog synth has been tested and is working fine and sounds very good. The synth is used but in good shape. The sliders are in good shape and only one slider tip is missing. The synth shows some modest cosmetic wear but works fine.” Link
“Moog Rogue analog synthesizer, serial 7609. Original owner.
Works, but many pots & sliders (another kind of potentiometer) need replacing.
Sold AS IS….
Has external XLR connector for organ pedals, which are trigger (on/off)
and control voltage (0 – +5V dc).. 1 V per octave.
I can offer more specs on this analog interface upon request.
The organ pedals (Seeburg 1964; 25 note) are also available.” Link
“Additionally, I did some work on this unti when I got it. I tuned the oscillators across the octave ranges to rectify the drift that occurs with vintage synths. 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
Sounds really good for the price. Has some of the original Moog circuitry.
One of the photo’s shows the setting’s for Dr. Dre’s “Dre Day”.
The other setting shows the setting for a sound Ice Cube used in “Bow Down” for Westside Connection.
Has a sound booklet and one other paper that came with it.
Minor scratches from normal wear.
In really good shape.
There is one minor issue. When you slide the Noise slider down, it stops sometimes and in the same place each time. If you keep sliding down it will then go all the way down. But it does not affect the functionality of the synthesizer.” Link
“Not much to say about the Roland Sh-101 That hasn’t been said already. Its one of the best, easy to use vintage analog synths out there. This ones in perfect shape. The only issue is the “up” on the mod stick doesn’t seem to do anything. Don’t know whats up with that or if can be fixed. Other than that its in tip top shape. Its been priced to reflect this issue. Comes with its original bag and power supply. ” Link
I am the original owner.
