2600 “Synthesizer – Arp 2600 ser#261437
Keyboard -3604p #361411

I have been in possession of this synthesizer for 17 years, and during that time has been well cared for. It worked very well for most of the time that I have had it, but in recent years a few things started to go, so I decided to get it back to perfect playing status.
I took it in for a full diagnostic and refurbishing using a local Detroit area synthesizer guru, the great J Beste. J has worked for the likes of Hans Zimmer during his time in California, in music and film, and is currently working independently and with the likes of Jack White’s 3rd Man records in Detroit, among others. His work is impeccable and I highly recommend the talent of such a detailed and knowledgeable specialist. He spent over 6 months meticulously refurbishing this unit to the best of his abilities, including:

-The disassembling, cleaning and lubing of all of the sliders. Full restoration.

-VCO1, VCO2, and VCO3 have been thoroughly diagnosed or rebuilt, and are all working perfectly.

-The power supply has been recapped, to avoid a common power failure that is indicative of this unit, eliminating future power problems.

-The keyboard bushings have been cleaned and lubed, and a few have been replaced.

-The oscillator chip has been rebuilt.

-The synth has been fully calibrated and tuned.

-All hole plugs are in place.

-Unit comes with original power supply cord, and original keyboard connection cord.

-Arp 2600 includes a bag of original patch cords, a patch manual, and operator manual.

-The unit’s original handle has been replaced, as have a few of the hole plugs, a few key bushings, one slider knob, but aside from that everything else is original.

-All jacks have been reviewed and in some cases repositioned or replaced.

Details to be aware of:

The arp’s Tolex, in some places, is naturally worn. Half of the keyboard’s tolex is missing on the half of the keyboard case–luckily the half that is removed when uncased. I have struggled not to replace the Tolex, but in the end I opted not to, as it is relatively inexpensive to have someone else do for you, and some purists might turn away from it for this reason.

One knob on the keyboard panel is missing.”

“An original vintage Arp Axxe, . I believe this was equipped with the so-called “Moog infridgement” filter on it, but you can research it yourself for a clearer answer. This synth is just over forty years old, and has signs of wear that are typical of a piece from this age, but nothing too unsightly.

The panel graphics are legible, and while there are a few minor scratches here and there, it’s generally devoid of huge gashes, dents, or anything else of that nature.

Now the fun part… This unit is in need of a tune up! The key bushings need to be replaced, the sliders lubricated, some canned air in certain places, etc. The portamento slider in particular seems to be stuck on at the moment, and there is a slight low hiss from the output i/o. Last time I checked, all of the keys sounded/responded, though are clacky because of the old key bushings that need to be replaced. A general maintainence overhaul is needed in order to restore this piece to its former glory.

The really good part, this synth sounds really quite special and truly unique. I will miss owning an Arp because of their very raw electronic sounds that stand alone in the synth world. The bass/low end on the synth are of Odyssey quality (same VCOs actually), and this synth can create very beautiful lead sounds with some guidence from its user as well as some warm oscillators. I also believe that the filter is very strong, musical, and full of unique character.” Link

Ich habe den Synthie vor fast 30 Jahren gebraucht gekauft; leider steht er seit Jahren hauptsächlich rum und wird so gut wie nicht mehr benutzt. Daher muss er nun Platz für was neueres machen.

Optischer Zustand:
Ziemlich gut für das Alter. Die Holzseiten haben minimale Macken.

Technischer Zustand:
Alles OK. Die Fader haken und kratzen teilweise ein wenig und sollten mal gereinigt werden.

Ebenfalls nicht unwichtig: Zumindest während meiner Zeit ausschließlich ein Nichtrauchergerät.”

We had it overhauled by a veteran analog synth tech last year. Some sliders replaced with original Arp NOS.
it was all calibrated and power supply tech’d too. Works and looks great. But sold as is due to how temperamental these old synths can be. I’ll upload a YouTube video of it being played in a few.

axxe “You are bidding on a vintage Arp AXXE analog synthesizer. Made famous by musicians like, Pete Townsend, Herbie Hancock, etc.; this is one of the original, early production, Arp Axxe analog synthesizers (#72). These are rare and extremely hard to come by; a true collector’s piece.

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.

The earliest units of the original version lacked Arp’s innovative “Proportional Pitch Control” pad, but they featured a copyright infringing version of a Moog filter that was later discontinued.

This example (#72) is an earlier version that has been recently serviced with no alterations by a professional music repair provider and is in excellent working condition with all functioning parts, less two slider caps [location of VCA GAIN, S/H sliders (see photos; cosmetic, does not affect operation)]. ” Link

arp_2600 “This appears to be a 2603 REV G model 2600, and it sounds amazing.

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.

This unit needs a bit of attention, but this is a great opportunity to get a highly sought after synth for a good price. It will be well worth the effort to restore.” Link

2600, 3604, ARP @ 29 March 2017, Comments Off on ARP 2600 with ARP 3604 Keyboard

26003604 “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.

What to expect: the synthesizer is in great condition but ultimately behaves like any synthesizer from the 1971– this is not a 2017 Moog Voyager, this will need time to warm up for the oscillators’ frequency to stabilize and the signal path is a little dirtier. The cable that connects the keyboard to the synthesizer is a little sensitive– it could be cleaned or replaced although you’re not going to notice this other than when you plug the two together. You will overdrive/distort the signal mixer if you run multiple VCOs/sound sources into it at too high of a collective volume– this is normal and I believe the CMS 4017 oscillator (VCO 2) outputs a hotter signal in general; you can back down the VCO levels to keep your tone clean or you can overdrive it by choice as with any mixer. The spring reverb is not isolated from the cabinet well at all– it is *very* sensitive to movement; both techs I’ve had work on the ARP have offered to isolate it but I absolutely love it the way it is, it is a gorgeous, messy reverb. I think the 2600 makes a great general spring unit, you can run a guitar or other signal right into the preamp. Ultimately, it’s in great shape but make sure you have a tech who can work on it should anything ever go wrong. It’s a heavy synthesizer and shipping will always be a real expense if you don’t have a local tech. Also– you can ignore the “Arpeggiator / Sequencer” part of eBay’s pre-populated product description, that’s inaccurate.”
