animoo “I hate to part with this, but I got myself into a financial mess by buying it in the first place. Letting it go fairly cheap to recoup my debt. It’s a great sounding, functionally dense powerhouse shop panel, and it has the “Animoo” upgrade of the traditional Animal, meaning there’s ring mod functionality added to the wave-multipliers section. Everything works well, and only cosmetic issue are some extra holes drill into side of boat. Includes a power supply (I don’t know that stats on it, but the guy I got it from was running several full Serge panels with it), an Obelisk to serve as a psd (bonus if you want to expand to M-Class panels), and 11 black 24″ pomona banana cables, 10 18″ red pomona cables, and five pomona shorting bars. Not sure of its full history, but I did have two faulty pots replaced recently by a tech in Portland, OR (one in the mixer section, and the gain pot in the UAP section, which was noisy & scratchy before — now works beautifully)” Link

serge “Up for Auction -
Beautiful STS Blue Fun System featuring the very difficult to find Soup Kitchen I Panel

This system is in mint condition.

The system includes the following 3 Panels
STS Blue Voice
STS Soup Kitchen I

The Soup Kitchen I came from STS just in January and is brand spanking new. I had all these panels put into 2.5 slim boats as well and they come with Rack Ears.

To power this beast, you will also receive a PS6A unit which has barely any use out of it and was new when I received it never used. This unit from STS is 1200$ alone. Included with the PS6A are 2 PSD’s and 2 DIN Power Cables and can power up to 6 Serge Panels.

Along with the system I am throwing in 50 Pomona Banana Cords of Random sizes and colors and a Low Gain 3.5mm to Banana converter box which can be used to send signals in and out of other modular gear.

This is the cream of the crop of 3 panel Serge setups. System will be packed like a TANK. I prefer payment through Paypal or Bank Transfer. Bank Transfer preferred. I am open to shipping internationally but you will accrue all customs and shipping charges and payment MUST be made through Bank Transfer as I will not accept International Paypal Payments.” Link

sonica “”Sonica Serge Synth Instrument, Frank Evantoff Number 585.

Own a part of synthesizer history. One of very few surviving, fully working Sonica Instruments. One sold at auction for $3,416.00

This example is in excellent condition, no damage other than one small ding (size of a BB) in the base of body. No corrosion on battery connections, original case, unmarked original instructions (even has unused stamp for warranty return). This instrument was bought new and put in a closet and recently found.

You are bidding on an extremely rare FULLY WORKING electronic synthesizer instrument by Frank Evantoff, called the Sonica. Number 585 of only 650 produced. Shaped like small lute with a guitar like neck which fits perfectly into the hand. By touching the frets on the neck the instrument produces notes best often described as between a theremin, sitar and a violin.” Link

erge ” Here is a vintage Serge panel filled with great modules. It is just a panel so it doesn’t include a power supply (you’d have to integrate this with another Serge system or get a power supply for it). Works and sounds amazing! Includes: New Timbral Oscillator (unique!), Dual Universal Slope Generator, Ring Modulator, Wave Multipliers (awesome unique module), Mixer, Variable Q Filter (killer), Universal Audio Processor, Extended ADSR Sold as is with no returns so please no what you’re buying. This is a silver panel from the original Serge days which is harder to come by! Note that the panel below it is not included in this auction and is an experiment with misc additional modules I’ve had from different Serge systems. This is the last of my Serge. I might be open to part with the misc modules as is if you want to inquire. But, this sale is just for the top panel as listed. ” Link

sonica“Travel back in time with this vintage Sonica. Yes, it is an unusual instrument. Around 1979-1980, only 650 were built. It’s really a synthesizer that looks like a mini-guitar/sitar. The tone is something like a theremin. To hear the actual tone, there are various Youtube videos of folks playing one. This one is numbered 410. It’s only about 20″ long. It has its own little speaker and runs on a single nine volt battery. It has two octaves. All the notes on the headstock are major, but there is a half-step button on the body. The key is adjusted by a key knob. Yes, it is an odd duck! It is quite well made with a wood body (carved from Red Alder) and brass front, back and rear head stock plates (coated with baked enamel). The “fretboard” is also side with brass. This one is in good condition except for tears on the interior speaker grill cloth. The brass plating is tarnished, but I didn’t dare scrub it with Brasso. It comes with the original (cute as the dickens) black chip board case with two piece of case candy. The mini six-page instructional booklet and warranty and the Sound Instruments warranty card (with the original 15 cent USPS “1980 Winter Olympics” speed skating stamp). It has an odd “in-tune” function: “Play the middle diamond… on the keyboard and turn the Key knob until the note sounds in tune with the music you’re listening to.” It also has an 1/8″ output jack for a regular amplifier. Ol’ Eric Clapton had one of these that was sold at his 2011 Bonhams auction for over $3,400. (Check it out online.) The inventor of the Sonica, Frank Eventoff, previously invented the popular Magical Musical Thing, and now runs Sensitronics, which is still on the cutting edge of experimental electronic musical instrument technology. I know I listed it in vintage guitars too (besides synthesizers) because it looks like a guitar, but it has no strings. It is all controlled by touching the notes on the headstock. For USA orders, shipping is free. It will be shipped in brand new cardboard 46” by 19” by 7” guitar box (which will be shortened to ship this) with plenty of new 1/2″ bubble wrap.” Link

custom serge panel “Serge STS Modular Custom Panel

Zum Verkauf steht ein Serge/STS Modular Custom Panel in sehr gutem Zustand (siehe Bilder).

Die Modulzusammenstellung entspricht nahezu einem Blue CV1 shop panel.

Ich habe nahezu alle Modularsysteme besessen und fuer mich ist das Serge System immer noch das Nonplusultra hinsichtlich analogem Sound und tiefgreifenden Modulationsmoeglichkeiten. Es besticht zudem durch ein aeusserst benutzerfreundliches Handling (Bananenbuchsen, die Multiples ueberfluessig machen), geringes Gewicht (fuer die, die ein portables System benoetigen) und die fuer mich attraktivste Optik aller Modularsysteme (ja, ich finde die Serge Panels sogar “schoener und einladender” als die durchaus “ansehnlichen” Buchla Module).

Da ich ein wirklich sehr grosses Serge System besitze mit erheblicher Redundanz biete ich dieses Panel an. Alternativ haette ich noch ein Sequencer Panel und ein TKB Panel. Genaueres bitte anfragen.

plan b“No menus or complex key commands!

There were several of these built around 10 years ago. Talking to people some assume they’ve owned, seen or heard stories about this specific unit. After further asking they tend to NOT have realized there were several made, even some in different formats like Modcan or Wiard. Still this is a very rare model that does not come up for sale on a regular basis.

Can also be run off a MOTM supply, uses a standard +15v, -15v DC.
I’m including a detachable ground cable and detachable banana clip with 2 leads.
The strategy is the sequencer is grounded to the PSU then the PSU is grounded via a lead to other racks/boats/PSUs to share a common ground which is necessary with banana systems and quite simple.” Link

It was given to me by my father, my kids have played with it a couple of times so there are small scratches here and there. speaker cloth is torn but the speaker works fine and is all original. everything else works fine. all knobs and synthesizer effects work fine just not two thirds fret board.” Link

I can honestly say that I owned nearly all modular systems and Serge is still my favorite one because of its raw analogue sound and very deep modulation capabilities. It is extremely user friendly (using banana sockets/patchcords avoiding any multiples), very low weight (which is important for those who need a portable system) and the most attractive outlook (yes, I really prefer the visuals of Serge panels to Buchla modules).

As I own a really large Serge System with some redundancy I am offering this panel for sale. Alternatively I might part with my TKB, Red CV1, Sequencer or Blue Voice Panel.” Link
