” For auction is an ARP 2600 v3 analog synthesizer with case cover and the coveted copper-cased 4012 Moog-ladder-filter-type filter as well as an original 3604 keyboard with case cover, featuring tuning, scaling, and portamento controls. The auction includes the connector cable that connects the synthesizer to the keyboard, the original power cable, seven 1/8th inch patch cables, and a plug for the filter section to defeat keyboard scaling of the filter cutoff, if desired.
This synthesizer is fully-functional. It was just serviced and cleaned by a very competent tech, and the keyboard was re-bushed.
The jacks have seen a lot of use, and are, in high-traffic patch areas, somewhat loose. Repositioning the cable (of the type included) is often required when patching in the CV region of the filter. The cable that connects the synth to the keyboard is fully functional, but is loose enough in general that you might not want to do an Edgar Winters (although there are guitar strap pegs on the edges of the keyboard!). These issues are very minor, but I wanted to be clear about them.
The tolex on the synth, the keyboard, and their case covers is original, and has wear, some slight tears, and one big tear on the bottom (see pictures). All of the fasteners are functional, but they and the other metal outer aspects on the case are worn with some spotting. One of the feet is loose, but simply requires tightening from inside the case. The faces of the synthesizer and of the keyboard are in good condition, and feature original caps and knobs.
This sale is undoubtedly one I will live to regret. I bought this synthesizer in 2006, and it has been one of the best synthesizers I have ever owned. I have used it in countless recordings, and it has served me well. It has lived in my cool, dry, smoke-free studio, and has been treated with care and respect. I am only selling it because I need funding for a business venture.” Link
