ob-sx“I have two of these. This one is a older model that was expanded to 56 programs.
You can press “A&B””A&C” “C&B” ‘ABC” “A”B”C”

it passes auto tune on the 4 voices but still goes out of tune.
I tried fixing it myself and turned voice 1&2 5&6 on and can’t figure out how to turn it back
to 1&2 and 3&4

obsx“The unit worked great without any issues, then I stored it for a year and a half in my closet, last week I decided to play it again after this long storage and I noticed the audio sounded far away and made a weird background hiss, I changed the audio jack and it worked fine for about 5 minutes then it started doing the same thing and made strange unfamiliar synth sound. I have no idea if it is a simple fix or not,All functions like auto tune ,banks ,programs ect …works normally see photos with LEDs in various positions .I figure since this unit is rare and the parts alone are pricey I will put it up for auction I am sure somebody could have this serviced or use it for extra parts” Link

“Oberheim OB-SX Vintage Analog Synthesizer. I have tested and it works, all the keys have sound and when I change the presets, the sounds change. I am not an expert so I do not know if it is working correctly. It is in good physical shape, however has been sitting in storage for some time and could use a cleaning. Finally the hold, and the chord lights are not coming on, dont know if there is a problem with the buttons or just the bulbs out. SOLD AS/IS.” Link

“This is an Oberheim OB-SX analog synthesizer with 6 voices. If you are thinking about buying this you probably know how special it is, and this particular one is in great shape. It has some extremely tiny scratches on the top, but is in near showroom condition otherwise.” Link

“I am selling an Oberheim OB-SX, six voices. It has recently been serviced and all voice cards are fully working. The keys have had all the bushings replaced. This is the 56 Program version, the last synthesizer that Oberheim made. It is by far the best Oberheim in my own honest opinion. I have owned all Oberheims, and this one sounds better than the OB-XA and the OB-X. It is in mint condition, no noticeable scratches as you can see from the pictures. The wood sides are immaculate. If you are looking for the best condition Oberheim Synthesizer, this is the one. The one thing I should mention, it is not a problem, but when you first turn it on, you have to press the autotune button to get it in tune, of course this is the reason they made the autotune button. Another thing is that on all these old oberheim’s it is best to give it 10-15 minutes of warmup to get the best sound out of it, this goes for any Oberheim. I also have an ATA Flight case for it, but the foam is falling apart because of age, I will throw it in if you want it, but the shipping will be more expensive if you want the ATA Flight case because of the weight. With the case it weighs close to 60Lbs. So it will be considerably more to ship it with the case.” Link

” Oberheim ob-sx for sale here today. This unit is in nice condition cosmetically, a few scuffs and nicks, nothing major at all. Some of the keys are a bit out of alignment, but easily fixed. The main problem is the power supply needs rebuilt. The unit was fine, then one day started blowing fuses. I have an Xpander and Obxa so i wont need this unit. If you want the vintage Oberheim sound for a good bargain buy this unit and have it serviced. Average cost for rebuild is around 250.00, so i am offering the synthesizer at a great price. The last unit i saw on ebay was around 2000.00, so this is a good deal accordingly..” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Very good physical condition, it seems to be 220v so I can’t power it up. It comes from old smoke free studio, the shipping would be expensive because this beast is huge and heavy, I expect it could be around $350, so due to the high shipping cost the item will sold as is.” Auction ended.

“Hello, I’m selling my Oberheim OB-SX 6 voice synthesizer. It is in excellent (and smoke free) condition. As you know this was Oberheim’s preset (mine has the full 56 presets) (with some controls to alter the sound) synthesizer which took the famous sounds from it’s bigger brother the OBX.and incorporated them in the SX. It is a gray version which has both CV in/out as well as Filter CV input. The CV in/out works monophonically as you would expect, but is so very handy with other CV modules from moogerfoogers to full fledged modular synths and of course anything that has CV. It also works well as a keyboard controller with my Euro modular (use it in unison mode for this) and the OB’s portamento control transmits to the euro, however the pitch and mod lever do not. Every thing works on this synth and is a real joy to play, and most of all it has that huge Oberheim sound! The keyboard also has a great feel to it, and as you can see from the pictures the keys are level. The Chips (CEM) that are used on the Oberheims are worth alone more than I am asking for the unit. Also to note that the voice boards generally go for $250.00-$300.00 a piece when you can find them…(quite rare)…and this one has 6 of them, so just by the math you can see that even in just voice boards alone I am asking less for what they would sell for collectively. So you get a great CV Controller keyboard to use with other CV products, a beautifully crafted piece of musical history, but most of all a huge sounding synthesizer that only the Oberheim OBX, SX, Xa can give. Lower 48 states sales and shipping only, no returns, all sales are final. Please see my feedback. Also as a side note, I was told when I purchased this unit, that after transport (shipping to me) that the voice boards might need some trimmer adjustments, and I found that this was true. In shipment they can sometimes get slightly off from their proper adjustment. After I received it I just opened it up and took a few minutes and made a few adjustments to the trimmers (via small screwdriver), and it sounded like the day it was made. So I’m just giving who ever purchases this the same advice…you may find that after shipment you too may have to adjust the trimmers a bit, but again maybe not. I’m not a tech, but I looked online for the schematics and found them, and then proceeded to barely rotate the trimmers that needed rotating until it sounded in tune and that was it, so very quick and simple for even a non tech kind of guy like me. I can include the copies that I downloaded to show what each trimmer does. Anyway, I think that’s about it, so I’m going to put it at the going rate because of all of the above. This is one of the nicest looking ones I’ve ever seen, and I think you will agree…the only reason I am selling this is that I just purchased it’s bigger brother and now have to help pay for it. ” Auction ended.

“Hello… Up for auction is my Oberheim OBSX. It is the original Black and Gray version. Upgraded to 56 patches at some point. It is a SIX voice version. As you can see from the pics. The cosmetics are in very, very good condition for it’s age, no dents, scratches etc. All the LED’s, Inputs and Outputs, Levers, Keys etc work as they should. I am selling this incredibly fat sounding Oberheim because we have an ongoing major upgrade to our studio. This will help fund some new recording gear purchases. Otherwise, i’d never let this baby go. It does sound warm, fat, sweet, and huge! It comes loaded with ALL SIX voice cards, the max offered on this model. All the voice cards work, and three were refurbished my an oberheim tech several months ago, New Trimmers were installed on those three cards. One of the old cards can be a little off tune wise, but as directed by the original manual, upon power up, press the AUTO button to tune all voice cards. All cards work, sound and tune as they should, but I suggest a voice calibration after shipment as trimmers can drift in transit. Tuning the voice trimmers is very easy and I can supply schematics on the trimmers if you request it. The Keybed works perfect, all the keys trigger with no issues. Due to the age of this synth, This is sold as is, no returns, for any reason. I tested this OBSX at length this morning. It is in the condition I have listed above. Another great feature is you can press the UNISON button and play this baby as a KILLER fat sounding mono synth to which it sounds massive! It’s kinda like having an SEM mono synth.” Auction ended.

“This is a 6 voice OB-SX from 1980. It has been fully serviced. It has new key bushings, the mother board has been resoldered, and it is tuned. It is not in beautiful cosmetic condition. The back panel is bent at the output jack. Everything works perfectly, though. The end panels have been refinished and the wood is really pretty, but not flawless.

This instrument is the non-programmable instrument based on the OB-X and OB-Xa. It uses the Curtis CEM3340′s for the oscillators, a CEM3320 for the filter, and the CEM3310′s for the envelopes. It has 56 programs which can be edited for 7 parameters. It sounds great! I’ve repaired hundreds of Oberheims, so I’m really familiar with them. This instrument is working great. It weighs about 33 pounds, which is light compared to an OB-X or Xa, but still kind of heavy for shipping.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
