Three versions of the Axxe were manufactured during the 1970′s, with the final two versions containing orange silkscreening and a slightly modified casing. The difference in these later versions was primarily the mounting of the keyboard.

ARP 2600 sn2601020x For Sale. This late model 2601 came to us in working order, but, as perfectionists, we wanted it to work like new or better for its next owner and hopefully continue to work well long into the future, so we fully disassembled it, cleaned it inside and out, thoroughly serviced it, rebuilt it and recalibrated it – a costly process taking approximately 19 hours of skilled vintage synth repair tech time. Now that its restoration is complete, it’s a pleasure to play and should make its next owner extremely happy. Unlike earlier models, all circuits inside this model are unencapsulated, with the exception of the ARP 4012 Moog filter. This means this unit will be much easier to service in the future, if need be. This sale includes a power cord. This unit isnt being sold with a keyboard, so be prepared to run it using a MIDI to CV converter, as most people do these days. This unit is in significantly better cosmetic shape than the other we currently have listed on ebay and is therefore priced higher. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Ebay only lets us post 12 photos. More can be found on our website.” Link

I have gently cleaned the exterior and it is in very good condition, please study the photos carefully, a few points to note,

- LED’s are operational on only Volume and Sustain (you may just see this in the photo)

- The Trombone and Piano slider/flip switches are loose and need remediation for them to work.

- The top case to frame screws are missing (to the left of ‘Quartet’ and to the right of ‘ARP’)

- Unit powers up fine and I have tested the 4 main instrument’s (Brass, Strings, Organ & Piano, all keys appear to be working fine and are in really good cosmetic condition).” Link

Hi you’re bidding on a vtg Analog Synth.

Note:

There are some issues on this synth that I’ll like to mention:

• It turns on, makes sounds after warm up, works perfectly fine but there’s some potentiometers that don’t function properly. (Sliders)

• I have cleaned all the potentiometers and put new bushings in all the keys

• this was a project, but i don’t have the time to keep maintaining this synth

• I’m selling it as is

•This synth is in good cosmetic shape (look pictures)

Comes with:

1) owner manual

2) 2 packs of new knobs

3) power cord”

FOR AUCTION: an original 1971 Tonus logo ARP 2600 semi modular analog synthesizer (model 2600P V1.0 according to discretesynthesizers.com, this is a pre-26xxx serial), complete with its original model 3604-P keyboard. I’ve owned and maintained this synthesizer for about 7 years, purchased locally from its original owner who had it in the back of his closet for years.

Condition: physically and electronically, this is among the nicest ARP synthesizers you’ll find from this era- even the Tolex on the synthesizer is in great shape (only the removable lids have notable peeling and I probably wouldn’t want to rely on them for heavy transport). Electronically, I initially had it restored by Greg Montalbano in Oakland (analogsynthservice.com) who, in addition to general restorative cleaning, also recapped the power supply, replaced the epoxy’d filter with the lower noise CMS 4012 and replaced the internal speakers with new ones purchased from the late Kevin Lightner. It has subsequently been maintained by Chris Hewitt / thisoldsynth.com who I had replace the epoxy’d VCO 2 submodule with a new CMS 4017; you can see his blog for the repair here: http://thisoldsynth.com/blog/2012/03/05/arp-2600-with-bad-vco/ . Both of the original ARP submodules that I’ve replaced will be included.

What’s included: Arp 2600 with keyboard and lids, original power cord, and cable that connects the keyboard to the synthesizer. Two Switchcraft Tiniplugs for shorting internal connections and a few gray patch cables to get you started patching the synthesizer.”

The 3604 Keyboard is in great shape – bushings / keys play very well.
NOTE: there is one broken potentiometer cap on the Sample & Hold “rate” (see photo). This is due to a little-lite falling from a shelf.
NOTE: ebay lists “Arpeggiator” and “Sequencer” under the items features, obviously this is not the case.”

ARP, Solina @ 08 March 2017, “No Comments”

arpsolina “In the early 1990s we went to an auction of a music store that closed. We bought this Eminent Solina String Ensemble, which seems to be new, although perhaps used as a demo. The only reason I say this is that the foot pedal is a bit dusty and the front part of the music stand (which keeps the music from sliding off) had become loose on the left side. We glued it back in place, but where it had rested on the top for all these years, it left a residue, which I am afraid to try to clean off. Please see the pictures.

The rest of the keyboard is in wonderful shape, the warranty has never been filled out, the instructions are included, and the glass music stand has never been removed from the carrying case.

It is set for USA voltage, 115V. Model STRING-ENS. The series is blank. No. 227044. Manufactured by Eminent Electronics, Bodegraven, Holland.

We have never removed it from the case until now. We have tested it, and it works perfectly as far as we can tell. All keys and buttons work. The carrying case is in excellent, although not absolutely perfect, condition.”

ARP, Axxe @ 22 February 2017, Comments Off

axxe ” I have had this synth since 1990 and it has always worked – lovely for bases. For most of the time I triggered it via the CV/Gate to midi interface.But it does need a full service to get it back to tip top condition as although it powers up and makes noises of sorts, the keyboard doesn’t work and some of the sliders have snapped off but can still be moved. It is also out of tune. But like any vintage synth a little work and service should bring it back to full glory. I no longer have the room for it and due to moving to mainly modules in my set up now it is time to say goodbye. There are plenty of reviews about the ARP Axxe on the internet. It is very heavy and so I would prefer local collection only. Date of manufacture is about 1978. I no longer have the manual but again these are on the net. Smoke free home and only two owners – never gigged.” Link

2600
The face plate is in very good condition, especially for it’s age.

When I purchased this in 2009, the previous owner stated that:

- This model has the much sought after Moog ladder filter.

- This unit was serviced by Greg Montalbano of Analog Synth Service prior to the sale (in 2009).

- These upgrades were installed:

1. An audio path op amp upgrade.

2. New power supply.

3. Installed standard three prong jack so that and standard electronic power cord could be used.

4. A cv/gate input mod was installed on the side, so you can patch a single source of each

through all 3 VCOs without using up the mults, or having to patch into the front.

This has been very useful.

Known issues:

VCO 2 doesn’t work.

VCO 3 pulse output doesn’t work.

These are both recent, but are an easy and inexpensive replacement.

Parts are easily available online.

The decay slider on the ADSR envelope works, but should be addressed.

The bottom for the wooden case, under one of the rubber feet, is starting to dry out.

The tolex is worn, and has been coated with something (prior to my having this) as a temporary fix.

The handle has been removed and there is no cover.”

usedoddy ” Recently purchased from a retired music teacher, this ARP has sat unplayed for years. From a brief test of the unit I found that while it does seem to function ok, it definitely sounds like it needs some work/cleaning to be in good playing condition. I am not an electronics/synth expert by any means so please take my observations with a grain of salt. Here is what I found:

* unit powers on
* light turns on
* sliders are stiff but move ok
* all switches/knobs move freely
* all keys move freely
* oscillators seem to work ok
* all parameters seem to function
* all keys sound but not always right away
* some notes seem to be out of tune

Please note that I cannot diagnose any issues with this unit or guarantee anything about its actual condition.” Link

usedmom “Arp Omni 2 Model 2473 for parts / repair (with Anvil case)

This is a non-working Arp Omni Mark 2! It is complete as far as parts, keys, components, etc. are concerned, and is only missing the pot slider caps.

This unit doesn’t play a note! It is purely a “fixer upper” or useful for parts. It does power on, and all lighted switches turn off and on… but the most it does right now is produce the infamous electrical clicking noise (through the “SYNTH,” “STRINGS,” and “BASS” outputs) when keys are pressed, followed by a faint click noise when those keys are released. Physically, it is in decent shape for its age, with the expected scratches and dings here and there from transport; the control panel, sliders, buttons, and keys are all good; no keys are chipped, and they are fairly even across except for two or three [See pictures.].

The blue balloon tantalum key capacitors were all replaced several years ago with electrolytics. The power supply tantalum and electrolytic capacitors were replaced with new electrolytics as well. The phaser circuit board and other electronics are all present.

If you have a good tech—or a fair amount of free time of your own—this could be a worthwhile project. (My studio unit is identical to this one, and it is one I bought non-working for cheap and fixed up.)

Arp Omnis are great synths: they offer a nice set of analog string sounds, a basic synth with simple, changeable parameters, and a bass section as well. All of these can be combined, too. Plus, there are two on-board effects: a phaser and a “wave enhancement” feature, too, which does _____ that makes things sound real cool…. Finally, the Omni is polyphonic through divide down circuitry (except for the bass section when it is activated; I think that is low note priority monophonic if I recall correctly).

The Anvil case is missing the original foam (which I removed because it had decayed into uselessness), but the Arp will be wrapped in a new foam mattress cover/pad… which will have the same cushioning result.” Link

usedarpoddy ” For sale is an Arp Odyssey vintage analog synthesizer. This unit is in great shape cosmetically, looks very clean. It also just got back from servicing. Apparently previous owner had tried some DIY repairs and done a poor job of it, and it came to me needing work. I sent it to a professional tech that completed servicing it did a nice job cleaning the internals, securing all the boards in place, replacing necessary capacitors, rebuilding the keyboard (plays very nice), servicing the sliders (they all move smoothly). Two of the sliders were replaced with the newer LED lit sliders.

It’s 98% functional at this point, all the features working as they should. The only issue is the tracking on the oscillators. If they are tuned together while playing a single note, they will get out of tune with each other the further up or down the keyboard you move away from the starting tuning note. After about an octave is becomes somewhat noticeable and at 2 octaves there is definite detuning sound. This is the last step the tech did not have time to troubleshoot. Otherwise it is working great.

I believe this to be a MkI internally but with the black/gold case and a knob style tuning section (unlike the push pads on MkIIs and MkIII). So probably a late MkI during a transition period between Mk1 and Mk2. It has the Arp 4023 filter. The serial plate/number is missing (and oddly there is a 3260 model serial number on this but it is not related to Odyssey model number). These old Odyssey’s have such a great tone and the newer Korgs, while great recreations, don’t quite capture the beauty of the originals. Check out the pictures for more details.” Link

***PLEASE READ REGARDING THE UNIT’S CONDITION***
Is it important to note that the physical condition of this unit is poor as it has clearly been played very hard (just look at the wear on the VCO slider!).
If you’re looking at this auction, I will assume that you know all about this amazing synth, so I will cut to what is wrong with the unit:

Ground prong missing from Odyssey power cable
Unit powers on (red light illuminates), but I could only produce a high-pitched whine from the sound output. Based upon this, I can’t say whether or not the unit actually works or not. (My best guess is that this has something to do with the ground prong missing, the general dirtiness of the unit, or a bad output.)
Foam from the road case is disintegrating and has likely gotten inside of the unit. (The sliders are very “sticky” feeling and need a good, deep cleaning)” Link
