It was serviced within the last 2 years by a qualified tech.over 600.00 was spent for the service. 2 plastic over knobs are missing from it the shafts are all there just the little plasticy pieces on 2 and 2 sliders are a little stiffer to move than the others. It is working as it should and sounds amazing !!!” Link

arp oddy “Vintage ARP Odyssey Music Synthesizer

This Vintage Synthesizer belonged to Joe Sampler. An American pianist, keyboard player and composer. Was one of the founding members of the Jazz Crusaders…

I bought this ARP Synthesizer in an estate sale. Belonging to one of Joe Samplers manager.

This synthesizer needs services as it was in a storage for years. Synthesizer does power. AGAIN this synthesizer needs to be serviced may need repair. Also one button missing. Please reffer to picture. ” Link

used oddy “Up for sale is a fully functional Arp Odyssey 2810. It has a 4023 filter installed by a previous owner and an obvious Arp fan so don’t expect the Moog sound here. This synth sounds great and was very well kept. It has restored original sliders that operate as nice as Arp originally intended, new capacitors, polished key contacts (jwire system), and it was tuned/calibrated. The keys are level and bushings are nice so it’s a pleasure to play. You can switch between octaves and use the pitch bend knob all with accurate results and very stable oscillators. It comes with a really old wooden case that was custom made for the Odyssey and it will further protect it as I pack the synth very carefully for a safe trip.” Link

FOR AUCTION: an original Arp Odyssey in black/gold, the model 2800 (Mark 1 with the most coveted model 4023 filter), circa 1974, made in the USA. The synthesizer is in excellent working condition having recently had the following restoration performed locally by thisoldsynth.com:

March 2016: New keyboard bushings installed

March 2016: Sliders disassembled & cleaned

March 2016: Power supply electrolytic capacitors replaced

March 2016: New Kenton CV retrofit installed

It is a beautiful-sounding instrument, I prefer its sound to the more sterile-sounding Korg Odyssey remake. This has a brand new Kenton CV retrofit installed so you can control it with control voltage via a MIDI-to-CV convertor, a superior solution like Expert Sleepers’ Silent Way or MOTU’s Volta, or with an analog sequencer. The overall physical condition is very good- it has scratches and wear but is overall in great shape. Clear photos of the actual synthesizer for auction are included.

As an instrument from around 1974, this is being sold “as-is/no returns”. HOWEVER, if you are local to the Bay Area and can pick it up, it is guaranteed to be in excellent working condition. It has been professionally restored and I would expect it to be maintenance-free for years as long as you actually use it regularly (the sliders will not easily oxidize or gather dust with regular use and proper storage). ” Link

used arp odyssey“This is the Original Arp Odyssey 2800 white face in amazing condition, nearly mint! Works and sounds great, serviced with new LED sliders installed as well as fresh key bushings plus all of the preventative maintenance needed to ensure trouble free use. Each key triggers perfectly, every function works and all switches operate nicely. The led sliders have the latest features where the lfo and envelope sliders illuminate in intensity according to their respective settings giving accurate visual feedback of those modulations. A dedicated power supply for the sliders is used so no additional strain will be caused and it powers on along with the Odysseys main power switch. Extra care was taken to preserve the original therefore this modification could be removed someday w/o any scars. Stays covered when not in use stored in a clean climate controlled studio. Clearing out some space and I have a few white faces.” Link

used arp odyssey“Up for sale is the amazing original Arp Odyssey 2800. Everything works and it sounds awesome as expected.

This one has been serviced with new sliders installed in all locations so it performs as accurate as Arp originally intended. It also has replaced key bushings, capacitors were updated and it was calibrated so the tuning and power supply are accurate. When you tune to C all vco sliders are dead center. All work was done within the past year and It’s kept covered in a clean studio when not in use to preserve the fresh sliders.

It’s not getting as much use as I would like, especially since I have a few of them and these things need to be played so I hope someone else can put this to good use. It’s also a clean slate and ready for modifications if desired. I’m very experienced in shipping synths and will pack this very carefully to ensure a safe trip.” Link

Fully serviced by Switched On Electronics in Austin, Texas, this unit is fully calibrated, rebushed, and ready to play. Features a 4-Pole VCF, CV IN/TRIG/GATE/OUT; absolutely legendary sounds. MUCH warmer tone, better playing, and less clinical sounding than the cheap made in China Korg reissues. This one has the 2nd 4075 MKII/III filter as compared to my Solus holds up just as well in the upper frequency spectrum.

This particular unit has been fully serviced, tuned, and calibrated. It has received a full rebush job with Pratt-Reed bushings. Overall, hundreds of dollars have been put into this synthesizer for restoration and upkeep to ensure it plays and sounds as good as it possibly can. Some sliders have also been replaced with Old-Stock ARP sliders for authenticity-sake. Includes original ARP footswitch and custom-fit heavy duty Cabbage Case roadcase.” Link

Excellent cosmetic condition & in great working order! It has been tested and it sounds absolutely amazing!! If you’re looking for the authentic Odyssey sound, this is your chance to own one! Custom gloss-black paint-job on the side-panels – very cool!! (see photos). It has been extremely well taken care of and has lived in a smoke-fee studio. Comes with the power cord. There is also a Pitch Control Mod that was done previous to my ownership. This does not impact its normal functionality or sound character whatsoever. When switched down it activates the Middle Proportional Pitch Control. When switched up, it deactivates it. ” Link

arp oddy” Our studio purchased this Arp Odyssey 2823 a little over a year ago from TechnoEmpire. It was previously owned by a prominent L.A. composer and it was professionally serviced before our purchase. It has only been used in our smoke free studio since. The synth sounds and plays great. The sliders were kept all original and serviced as needed. Not all are completely smooth but all function as they should. Some of the slider caps are missing (see pics). Still have the professional packing when sent to us so will be very secure. We are only selling to fund a larger purchase.” Link

used arp “Up for sale is a (1) vintage ARP Odyssey MKII synthesizer. It’s in perfect working condition and sounds awesome! It has true analog power with two oscillators, sync mode, pink and white noise, portamento, a great (modified the bugs) filter, sample & hold, lfo, monophonic / duophonic function, ring modulator, high pass filter, ad / adsr and so on. Notice that the resonance fader is slightly crackling when you use it.

Optical it’s in used, but fair condition for its age. There are some scratches on it and wear and tear (see photo’s). Overall this is a great piece of history which deserves a good new home. It’s been modified to a 220V version and we installed a European plug. The serial number is: 2813-1399.” Link

oddy ” This is an auction for a vintage whiteface ARP Odyssey synthesizer. The auction also includes a foot pedal, case, and template sheets that came with the unit. It appears to be working except for the white noise generator. Unlike similar whiteface models, this one has a pitch bending pad that was identified as factory installed when purchased used in the 1970s (same owner since then). (Later models included the pitch bending pad.)
Wear: The unit is in overall very good condition. I included photos where I think that some of the material from the case had adhered to the edges of the unit. The material in the case is deteriorating, and there is some rust on the handle of the case. I also cannot seem to make the key work in the case.” Link
