sci pro one “Sequential Circuits Pro One, serviced a few weeks ago by my California tech who has worked on these for 25 years, replaced a few switches and one pot, the Pro One also got a replacement CEM3340 oscillator chip and has all new key bushings installed, which is great as the original Pratt and Read ones always wear out. This is the JWIRE version.

The keyboard looks and feels great. Watch your speakers, the Pro One is a killer bassline machine, but you probably know that already.” Link

6trak“Sequential-Circuits Sixtrack Analogsynth (220Volt Version). Er ist für sein Alter in einem guten Zustand, weder große Kratzer oder andere Beschädigungen. Die Tasten machen viel Spaß zu spielen und machen keinen so billigen Eindruck wie viele andere Synths. Das Highlight ist absolut der Midi Ein/Ausgang, der war bei den alten Dingern ja leider oft noch nicht vorhanden. Der Sound ist analog warm und macht gerade in den Bässen schön tiefe Flächen. Hatte oft keine lust einen echten Bass zu benutzen da ich von dem Sixtrack-Bass-Sound so verwöhnt war. Ich schätze das Baujahr auf Ende 70er Anfang der 80er. Ein wirklich gelungenes Teil das sich dank seiner Vielzahl an Sounds in fast jede Produktion fügen lässt. ” Link

Well then, check out this bad boy. Crunchy, cutting 12 bit samples run through superb SC analog filters. Anyone remember the Prophet 5?
All buttons, knobs etc. have been tested and are fully functional. See photos for parameter values of some of the functions.
The factory disk drive was replaced at some point with a newer unit.
This unit was used in a home studio only, no hard road use. The inside of this unit still looks factory fresh!
Exterior looks very good for it’s age, some minor splotches to the paint, but no scratches or dents. I would say this unit is above average cosmetically.
It will look brilliant in your rack!” Link

So a few keys clack, so what?” I agree. Some keys clack but they all sound and everything works..

ARP, Solus @ 04 March 2015, “No Comments”

arp solus“Used vintage ARP Solus synthesizer. Tested everything except the HIGH output, works well. The keyboard contacts need to be cleaned, the pitch drifts a bit or drops when you play some keys (note: synth tracked perfectly using CV and Gate in from an ARP Axxe). Has MIDI modification, however this is no longer working – when you flip the MIDI switch it disconnects the keyboard, but does not respond to MIDI in. Cosmetics very good, silkscreen clear. There are a couple of small nicks/scratches where the black paint is gone (see photos) but nothing major. Small hairline marks and paint uneven in a few small places. Tolex case is good, faded but no tears, the case hardware is tarnished. Feel free to ask any questions. Think I’ve had this unit for 12 years, rarely used it (smoke free home studio)” Link

ARP, Pro DGX @ 04 March 2015, “No Comments”

arp pro dgx” Cosmetics very good, 8/9 of 10? All silkscreen good, end caps no scratches, gouges. No dents, scratches (a few pin point spots, mostly across the top). The top paint looks a bit faded in bright light. The holes on top where the music stand went have some wear around them (lost the stand). All switches, sliders, knobs and LEDs work. Tested multiple combinations of the aftertouch effects (including all at once) and they work. Portamento, repeat, octave, brilliance, touch sensitivity, vibrato speed ok. Not much variation in volume when you adjust the slider, not active until upper third of slider range, but I keep my volume levels on max. Did not test portamento switch or the high output.

Key wires/aftertouch assembly needs cleaning/adjustment, some notes don’t trigger always right away (C1,Eb1,E,C2,D2,Eb2,A3,C4 – these I noticed most, others every now and then) Sometimes they will not trigger, needs a second press, sometimes a double trigger. Sometimes playing legato will have a slight pitch wobble.Preset doesn’t seem to matter, though some appear better than others (those that have a longer release time). I’m thinking a professional cleaning will fix those glitches. All presets sound. When you turn on the unit it takes a few seconds before the power light turns on – I’ve noticed this on other ARPs (I sold a Little Brother a couple of months ago that did the same thing, and I have an AXXE that works the same way). Vintage gear sold as is.” Link

2600, 3620, ARP @ 04 March 2015, “No Comments”

26003620“Zum Verkauf steht hier ein Stück Synthesizergeschichte in absolutem Traumzustand.Das Gerät wäre nach Schulnoten bewertet optisch und technisch eine glatte 1.Schauen Sie sich die original Bilder an,diese sagen mehr als tausend Worte.
Da dieser ARP 2600 fast sein ganzes Leben im Case verbracht hat,sieht er aus als hätte er gerade die Werkshallen verlassen. Der Käufer erwirbt nicht nur ein erstklassiges Musikinstrument sondern auch eine Art Zeitmaschine.Sitzt man davor fühlt man sich sofort in die 70er Jahre zurückversetzt.Augen und Gehirn können nicht glauben das dieses Gerät fast 40 Jahre alt ist.

In diesem Zustand einen zweiten 2600 zu finden dürfte in Europa kaum möglich sein.

Der hier angebotene ARP 2600 hat auch noch das berühmte 4012 “Moog” Filter an Board. Dieses Filter klingt äußerst edel und ist in alle Richtungen musikalisch flexibel. Bei hoher Resonanz bekommt der Sound nach unten hin einen schönen “Bauch”, der Klang dünnt nicht aus.Das soll nicht heißen das spätere 2600 schlecht klingen,doch wer das 4012 Filter einmal kennt empfindet das spätere 4072 Filter bei weitem nicht so flexibel und musikalisch wie das 4012.
Gleichwohl hat dieser ARP hier schon die “neueren” stimmstabileren Oszillatoren welche das tonale Spielen wesentlich erleichtern.Ständiges Nachtunen gehört hier der Vergangenheit an.Die Seriennummer weist diesen ARP als Modell aus,das für den europäischen Markt gebaut wurde.Netzteilprobleme sind hier nicht zu befürchten!
Als Sahnehäubchen hat er das “große” 3620 Duophonic Keyboard welches einen zusätzlichen LFO beherbergt.Dieses gehört beim Sofortkauf für 9880 Euro zum Lieferumfang….
kann aber auch zusätzlich oder einzeln erworben werden.” Link

ARP, Avatar @ 04 March 2015, “No Comments”

avatar“Certainly one of the nicest Avatars today. Serial number 2223-1360 which is the highest I know of and it was probably one of the last made. Looks crisp, a few scuffs here and there, but near mint and even the leatherette sides hardly have a mark on them. This one might actually have boards from a late model Odyssey in it, as they were restored at the same time, are identical and were possibly interchanged. About 5 years back, the boards were throughly bathed, all tantalum caps replaced, the sliders cleaned with isopropanol / lubricated with a silicone base and everything calibrated. It’s really nice and not needed any work since. I’ve not tried a guitar pickup with it, but there’s no functional issues with the synth section, and everything works quite well. The ‘synth output’ jack works independent of a guitar connection. Theres a 1/4″ external input to the VCF and VCA, and CV/GATE/TRIG in outs that will re-trigger the AD portion of the envelope. No mods present. It comes with a few extras:

-The original factory printed service manual
-Hex pick up
-3 replacement sliders on of each value it takes
-Male and female connectors for the pickup cable. The 6 pin DIN is standard, available at mouser/digikey etc, but these are hard to find. ” Link

OB-8, Oberheim @ 03 March 2015, “No Comments”

ob-8“This listing is for a Pristine Oberheim OB8 Synthesizer Keyboard -It looks brand new and sounds great! A classic 80′s Synth. A really beautiful instrument.

The OB8 has been in storage for a number of years. It had always been exclusively used in a smoke-free recording studio.

All of it’s functions work perfectly, with one big exception – it can only be played via a MIDI keyboard.

The key contacts on most of the keys do not trigger. It seems that, with the passage of time, and without being played, many vintage synth keybeds have this issue.

After speaking with some knowledgeable synth repair techs, it appears that a good fix is to either clean the keybed contacts with denatured alcohol and a pencil eraser or use a “rubber contact paint” on the rubber contacts.

It has never been modified or repaired. All knobs, buttons, lights, voices, page 2 controls, levers, connections and preset sounds function perfectly. All 8 voices are in tune.

Contains the original Lithium battery; the factory kit MIDI ports; the last software revision ‘B5′ – 8/15/84 and software operation guide; original Instruction Manual ;MIDI documentation; some original OB8 literature will also be included .

Please note; the modulation lever engages when pushed toward the rear of synth not when pulled forward, but nevertheless still functions perfectly.

*****AGAIN, the OB8 CAN ONLY BE PLAYED VIA A MIDI KEYBOARD. ” Link

casio cz5k“Casio CZ-5000
Classic Phase Distortion Synth with 8-track sequencer

Condition:

- All sliders, buttons, and mod-wheels work.

- MIDI tested and working.

- The left channel on the headphone output is intermittent.

- Mod On/Off Button above Mod-wheel is a little hard to engage, though it does consistantly work.

- Volume and Chorus sliders are a little dirty sounding when moving.

- Outputs do have some hiss to them, though no worse than other synths of this period I’ve used.

- This unit had batteries left inside and they leaked. The inside of the unit has been cleaned to remove as much of the corrosion as possible, but the synth cannot be powered by batteries anymore, only the IEC Power cable. The battery leakage did not damage any circuit boards.

- Battery cover is missing.

- Overall, this unit does show wear to the outer case, see pictures for more details.

- I don’t have a cartridge to test that functionality.

- Sustain and Foot Volume have not been tested.” Link

Doepfer MAQ “Up for Auction is this Doepfer MAQ 16/3 MIDI Analog Sequencer with Blue LEDs. I’m the original owner. The unit was purchased in 2002 and has been upgraded to the current OS.

The auction includes a power supply and manual.

The OS has been upgraded to firmware 3.72, which prevents MIDI clock output when receiving MIDI clock input and other enhancements. If you are looking at the MAQ 16/3, make sure it has the latest firmware update, or have a way to filter system messages. ” Link

ms6 “I am selling a rare Cheetah MS6 6 voice multi timbral synthesizer. It will need to be serviced because voice 4 is faint and hard to hear. All the other voices come in loud and clear. Voice 4 was replaced so the problem might be a bad trace in the audio circuit from voice 4. I don’t read schematics and don’t have the money for a repair right now, so I’m going to let this go. All the patches are in place and sound great. MIDI is working fine. This even has the new MADD OS upgrade installed. The case is in rough shape, the finish is bubbled and rusted in places. Once racked it doesn’t look that bad. If you can read schematics and can follow the audio signal from voice 4, this looks like an easy fix. Otherwise, like me you might want to pay to have this serviced. ” Link
