“This is a Oberheim OB-12 in very good plus conditions.
Very minor wear on the wood. I didn’t even take time to picture them, because you have to take a very close look to see minor tweaks in the wood.
Synth sounds great. Everything fully functionnal. Never had problems. Headphone jack should be cleaned though, it sometimes makes loud scratches when pluging and unpluging the headphones. Other than that, never noticed any other problems.” Link
“Hi there, selling my Oberheim OB12 virtual analogue synthesizer as I don’tuse it anymore. It was bought new in 2000 and while occasionally gigged in the past has remained in my studio for a number of years.
It’s a good synth to have to learn the basics of synthesis as it has an easy to read display that shows the parameter that you’re changing as soon as you touch the sliders, buttons, knobs and ribbon controller. It has some unusual options that can make strange sounds such as ‘saw spread’ or ‘triangle wrap’ which you don’t often find on a VA synth. It also has 4 part multitimbrality with split and layering options.
The synth is in good condition however it does have scratches on the end caps as well as some on the paint work at the back and front which I’ve tried to show in the pictures. There is also a single line that appears on the LCD screen when it boots it up but it doesn’t affect operation or get in the way of seeing things. This can be seen in the pictures. Unfortunately the line stays on the screen the whole time. This seems to have been a common problem for the OB12 display after a number of years. I have heard of people replacing the display but haven’t looked into it myself. The OB12 will also come with a kettle plug and the original manual which is in good condition.” Link
” You are bidding for an Oberheim OB12 virtual analogue synthesiser. It is in full working order, and good cosmetic condition, having had one careful owner and little use since purchased in 2002. Also included is a mains lead and the original manual.” Link
“I bought this OB-12 used several years ago. It had a broken key and two missing buttons, but the operating system and audio were fine. Shortly after purchasing it I had the synth serviced to fix these issues. The only cosmetic issue now is that the new key is a slightly brighter white than the old ones (see pictures). This is barely noticeable from a distance and the synth looks and sounds great otherwise.
I never had the original manual but I printed out a PDF version in a binder which is included in the auction. The power cord is also included.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“I am selling my Oberheim OB-12. It has been living in my studio for 9 years with out much use and I think it needs a good home now! It’s working perfect except for the pitch wheel doesn’t return to the start point( not a problem if you use another master keyboard) and also the guy that own this beauty before me managed to burn a tiny hole in the G2-key. It comes with manual and also a kettle lead. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“This Oberheim Viscount Joint Venture OB 12 Synthesizer is used and in good condition. Tested and works. Very nice sounding synth with only one issue. It appears the backlight for the LCD display screen is out, the screen itself still works, but you have to view at the right angle with direct light to read the display. Since the display shows the menus and several soft keys, it makes navigating the different sound banks difficult. But it is doable and the sounds this thing puts out are amazing. ” Auction ended.

“Up for auction today is an Oberheim OB-12, a synth you don’t see much on Ebay these days. This synth is fat and it’s heavy (both sound-wise and physically). With some tweaking, you can make some really awesome sounds with this board. I just find that I don’t use it much these days anymore and need to clean out the music room. Auction includes the synth and a power cord.
It’s in perfect condition, (both visually and sonically) except for a single line across the LCD about 2/3 the way down (shown in picture). It doesn’t affect the sound at all. I’ve read that this is a common occurance for these particular synths.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“this synthesizer is in great cosmetic condition with only two minor flaws. one is a bit of paint chipped on the left end cheek and the other is a small nick in the paint above the ribbon controller ( both blemishes are pictured below). unfortunately the main display light is burnt out (was like this when i bought it) but the display is still readable and this wont prevent you in any way from using the synth to its fullest extent. also this is something that is totally fixable it just didn’t make a whole lot of difference to me personally so i just left it the way it was. the keybed sits level (as pictured) and is fully functional as are all other buttons, sliders, and knobs. this is an excellent synth to work with as the sonic possibilities are only limited by the user. anything from digi to analouge sounds are possible with this very hands on synth. the ribbon controller is a whole lot of fun as well” Auction ended.

The original manual will be included and it’ll be shipped in the original box. This synth has lived in a smoke-free household its entire life! It has not been gigged and has not been moved in my home studio for many years!” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“This OB-12 has two issues, otherwise everything is in order electronically and cosmetically. Sound quality wise, this synth is excellent and has its own character – selling because I am reducing my inventory.
First issue are the 2 keys shown in the picture. I received it this way, in fact the seller hid this condition. The 2 keys function perfectly, but are blemished with slight cracks. Otherwise, the keybed is in good condition and operating as expected.
Second issue is the amount knob on the ADSR. The OB-12 has an overall volume (or Amount) knob next to the ADSR amplifier which controls the overall volume of that section. This issue is, if you change the amount after selecting the patch, the value floats slightly. The result is not so much the amount value changing but, the display’s response to that change. The dispay changes context to the parameter you are changing, so it thinks you are changing a parameter when you are not. The result is an annoying display changing context, while you are trying to alter something else. Luckily, this has never been an issue really. If you don’t change that overall volume during playback, the problem never occurs. The value on the knob must be set to zero, or 100.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
