ARP, Axxe @ 08 February 2017, “No Comments”

arpaxxe “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)].”

I have had it for years intending to renovate but there’s always something more urgent!

Starting at 99p this could be a fantastic deal to someone with the necessary technical skills.” Link

axxe “Lovely beast with plenty of cv in and out.

It was serviced last year by St Eric the Dutch Arp wizard (clients include chemical brothers).

New power supply fitted and slight mod to the filter to open it up more. A general service and internal clean was also done.

The keyboard doesn’t quite track correctly after an octave but I used it with a mengqi voltage memory so never had problems. ” Link

Very collectible item

Good overall cosmetic condition
Works well but needs a little TLC as it has been in storage for a long time
and some of the faders are very stiff and will need cleaning.”

It has been tested and found to be in good working order. All the keys are working well as well as the sliders and it produces a crackle free sound output. ” Link

There are some small marks that appear to be tape residue near the sliders. This is a very old synth, it good condition for its age.” Link

I will say that the Functionality is probably about 90% . I do not have the means to test all Input – Outputs. One of the keys did not sound. May just need further cleaning.
One Broken Potentiometer – Replacement is included with sale.
Potentiometers slide freely. Nothing is super gummed up or anything.

10 Original Templates Included.

This was toured and used. Its a survivor and a great piece.

This Arp Axxe has been in my studio for 8 years.

Some of the sliders are scratchy, using them works out most of the crackling but you may want to get a few replaced if you want to “perform” on it as opposed to find a sound and leaving it there.

Pretty good condition overall!” Link

used axxe “It’s a sad day but after a decade of love my Arp and I must part. The poor thing still powers on but won’t produce any kind of sound at all. It was in good working order up until a month ago. I suspect the filter chip may have simply gotten too dusty and needs replacing. For someone with a little more patience than I have this is a good opportunity to get your hands on a real classic of the synth world at an exceptional price. You know this beast is American-made with rich, warm analog sounds and an extremely intuitive/performance-friendly interface. This is one of the first generation Axxes with those gorgeous wooden side-panels- see pics. I really want this to go to a good home!” Link

At the end of last year I took her to the one and only saint Eric in Rotterdam for a service. He’s worth googling, The Chemical Brothers use him. He replaced the power unit, and cleaned her up. He’s the last bastion of Arp servicing.

Cosmetically there are marks and old scratches on the wood & metal.” Link

axxe “This is a one owner only (me) owned Arp Axxe, first version. Purchased in 1976 or 77 I believe. It is in excellent condition. Works perfectly. Comes with the original Anvil case with Arp painting on it. There are a few areas of rust on the outside of the case. The foam inside had deteriorated and I have replaced it with newer foam to protect the synth. It also comes with the foot pedal, some patch cords (once used for a Little Brother) and the template guides for presets. I’m selling the instrument as you see it. There is some excess foam that attached to the brass plate on the front of the Axxe. Otherwise, it is in excellent shape.” Link

lb “Selling a working ARP Little Brother Collectible Vintage Synthesizer expansion unit in overall nice cosmetic condition. Checked out by local electronic shop and said to be working. Also including is the original ARP 2313 Synthesizer that is not working. Shop did not have schematic to diagnose problem when I had it there but I am told all components are not hard to get once the problem is diagnosed. They just did not want to take time to scope it with no schematic. I was able to download a 2300 service manual which looks very similar but this was after I picked it up from the shop so they probably could use that to diagnose but I am just going to sell it as is along with the Little Brother and let the buyer fix it or have someone fix it. It also is in very ice cosmetic condition. Both are rare early synthesizers and the 2313 is well worth fixing” Link

There are CV and gate inputs and outputs that will allow you to connect with other analog synths (with somewhat unpredictable results). Not all the slider caps are on it. There is one slightly raised key, but it functions fine. The original overlay sheets are included (not shown).” Link

The synth is in great working condition and all of the keys work perfectly. What makes this Axxe unique is the MIDI jack that was installed by a previous owner. Typically these only have CV, but this one you can plug in any MIDI out signal into the Axxe and control it that way. ” Link

This is a gorgeous little ARP combo in a very old original built case with lid and legs. You can see form the pics that conditon is excellent for the Axxe and overall for both units is pretty good although the Little Brother badge could do with some ‘reinvigorating’.

There is loads of info regarding these items online, but i would definitely say that the Little Brother is a very rare unit on its own, i’ve hardly ever seen these up for sale!!!

I paid a significant amount of money to have everything brought back to full ‘like new’ working order with Saint Eric- the boards have been washed, sliders repaired/lubed and Key contacts polished.” Link

In near mint condition and serviced by James Walker, synth repair services in Stoke in April this year.

Wonderful sounding analogue synth from the late 1970′s in top fully working condition. Unfortunately selling to downsize my studio.

This is the superior MKII model with the expressive PPC’s. All original and with all slider caps.

Previously used by a school in the USA, James converted this to UK voltage.” Link

axxe” For sale is my Arp Axxe MKII, which I’ve owned since the mid-80′s. The Axxe has only had light use in a studio during the time I’ve owned it and has been in a protected road case when it was not being used. The road case is included, it is heavy duty, and is the perfect place to store the unit.” Link
