opus_3“Above is the generic information about this synth. Here’s my personal information about mine. I cleaned out the infamous black foam, all the voices work, and all the keys work. It’s in pretty good cosmetic condition and includes both wooden sides. The reason I’m listing it for cheap is because it can be wonky when it comes to the master attack and decay. So it’s going as is. All the filters work also, brass and organ are louder than string but that can be dealt with via the volumes for each voice and the master volume. So Here’s your chance to own a piece of Moog history for very cheap. ” Link

missing a few slider caps (3 to be exact). these sliders still work as they should
Articulator “Attack” slider and power on LED need to be resoldered
works perfectly aside from the above mentioned
the infamous black foam has been removed from the panel backing and switches/sliders (if you are familiar with vintage Moog items you know how much of a PITA this can be)
all keys have been removed and individually cleaned, then reinstalled” Link

moog_opus_3 “This Moog Opus 3 is in great working condition. It is fully functional – all voices and parameters effectively operate. I really hate to get rid of this synth. It is the first hard sell I’ve had to make in a long time. The modulation on this one is very controllable and helps get a lot of movement in the voices.

The dreaded black foam has been dealt with. You can see tiny remnants of it, but it doesn’t effect functionality.

As you can see, there are some scratches on the control panel and wood panelling. The wood panel under the keys is a bit loose but this is merely cosmetic, it does not effect playability or functionality.” Link

moog opus3“Moog Opus 3 in fantastic condition.

The unit is cosmetically flawless and has next to no scratches, marks or blemishes.

All slider caps and knobs are present, all keys trigger and work perfectly.

The Opus had a service from James Walker at Synth Repair Services late last year where all 3 SAD512D chips were verified as fully working and in good health.

Unfortunately, the chorus section stopped providing any output just last week. The chorus section has always worked perfectly fine up to this point. I have tested the SAD512′s and they are all running efficiently so I would guess the problem lies within a power or connection fault.

I would send it off for repair myself as I am positive it will be a very small job however I really need to get some money together by the end of the week.

This synth really does sound amazing and you will not find one in this cosmetic condition again.” Link

Plays beautiful fat analog goodness – all sliders are clean and responsive – all keys work. Moog built it some time in the early 1980s, and I’ve owned it since ~1994. I have always taken good care of it and kept it in a smoke-free environment (never on the road). A few blemishes are shown in the photos (they were present when I bought it: two pieces of wood broken off, one knob missing (slider still works fine), face “bubbled” near the power button). I’m giving it up because I’ve moved more toward guitar. You can put it to better use than I can, and I can use the cash for guitar gizmos! ” Link

opus3“This auction is for my personal Moog Opus 3 in near mint condition. This is a vintage Moog form 1980 pre midi and digital, and will appreciate as all Moogs do. In August 2009, 99 % of all internal pots and sliders and external knobs and slider caps were replaced with new clone parts manufactured by Technology Transplant. There were a few switches and one slider not in the restoration kit during the service but I have since acquired them and have included them in this auction. The few remaining original parts were thoroughly cleaned by tech and are functioning perfectly. I will also include all the old original parts that were removed for spares. The service manual and a copy of the owners manual are included as is the power cord (not seen in photo). This Moog is amazing and plays chords ! One minor detail, the chorus effect, since the restoration sounds like a pitch LFO and it may still be assigned to the strings and organ synths, some may like this, but my workaround was to run the String channel through a nice chorus pedal wallah !. I suspect the chorus slider was installed upside down, or an in correct value slider was accidentally installed from the kit. You may have very little trouble fixing this with the spare new sliders included or by flipping the installed slider, check the values. Examine the pictures, wood still very nice, panel is pristine. Everything works this Moog Poly synth is gorgeous sounding plug it in and start making music !” Link

opus3“Recently serviced. If you know this synth, you know the story of the sticky black goo. A long time ago, Moog used a black styrofoam underneath the front panel to prevent dust and dirt from getting in. Over the years, the styrofoam degarded into a sticky black goo that gets all over the electronics, and is even conductive. This synth have been completely cleaned out of all the sticky black goo and is in great condition. String, organ and brass sounds which may be combined in stereo! A fun synth, highly sought after, get snapped up on eBay pretty quickly and not always in this great condition. No trades, price firm. ” Link

With its built in stereo mixer you can combine organ brass and strings and achieve a wide array of sounds. If you are looking for a warm bass tone this is your synth – you can achieve a deep warm analog bass tone when you switch over to the organ setting. Amazing condition – was recently cleaned and inspected by a professional synthesizer technician no problems at all. Cosmetically this is one of the cleanest opus 3 you will find on ebay. Only a couple scratches on the back as you can see in the photo” Link

Der moog besitzt einen Monoausgang Klinke, und zwei seperate Klinkenausgänge für den rechten und den linken Kanal. So kann man jedes Instrument beliebig stufenlos einem Kanal zuweisen, also z.B. Organ nach rechts und die Strings auf den linken Kanal. An einen der beiden Kanäle könnte man zum Beispiel ein Effektgerät einschleifen oder zwei Verstärker ansteuern.

“A Moog Opus – 3 in great shape. It’s a cool poly synth that has three different sectioned off sounds that you can blend together in any combination. I got it about two years ago and had VanSickle Audio in Columbia, MO run through it, clean it out completely, and make sure everything was in tip top shape. Have been playing it lots since then, just don’t have room for it in my collection anymore.” Link

“Synth is complete, but DOES NOT POWER UP. I opened it up, changed the fuse, and still nothing. Gotta be something simple. Bought it on eBay, supposedly working, but arrived DOA. Common on these models is the rubber turning to gunk inside. I got a lot of it out but still more to be done. Chorus and VCF mixer switches are broken but can still be moved with a pen. Finally bought a working one so this goes. Shouldn’t take much to make it sing again – classic Moog. ” Link

” Hello everyone, here is my nice and clean polyphonic Moog Opus 3 for sale in fully working condition. There is not too much to say about this rare synth, you probably know this if you are here, the net is full of info regarding its really massive and unique sound. The Opus has been fully serviced a month ago, which included removing the horrible sticky black foam from the board, and cleaning all the sliders and faders knobs (taken out one by one!!!), replacing a cap, fixing some scratchy switches and washing the keys, and tracking down the signal path ensuring every part is working perfectly, so the OPUS is ready to go for another 30-40 years for sure! The cost was almost 400 Euros for the service!!!

One thing to mention, one slider on the modulation section goes a little stiff, but did not bother me enough to replace the slider since its working OK for me. If you want to replace it it would cost around 10 dollars. ” Link

“This vintage synth powers up and plays but does have some wear and tear to it, with 2 missing knobs in the Chorus Delay and the Chorus On/Off Switch. The wood grain casing has some wear to it that is documented in the pictures. All of the keys are intact and in good condition and work. When testing, there were some audio clipping and I would assume the unit needs a professional cleaning.” Link

“Vintage MOOG Opus 3. This has been in storage for about 15 years. I plugged it in and it powers up and plays, but it needs professional cleaning, and likely some repair or replacement of a couple of the sticky sliders. Everything is there as far as all knobs, sliders, etc.. with the exception of 1 missing C key (see photo). Some of the sliders are hitching up and all the knobs, switches and sliders are noisy, so this will take some work to be a perfect piece. As you can see from the photos, it is in decent condition otherwise. It could use a new face template (I see these here on ebay all the time) because there is some peeling etc.. on the one that is in place now. I am selling this AS-IS because it does need work. ” Link

“Moog Opus3 Stereo Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer Great Condition for its age! Everything seems to work properly. All the knobs and sliders appear to be original. The slider for the attack parameter has a very slight hitch at the bottom- all the rest of the travel is very smooth. All the rest of the sliders are extremely smooth and function properly. All the keys work fine. The volume knob is a little stiff but works fine with no noise. All the switches work fine. This is one monster synth….it can get extremely fat and loud and can quickly overpower any instrument in a band or mix! The 3 sections _string/organ/brass can be mixed to the stereo output…a very original and fascinating synthesizer from Moog!” Link

” I purchased this synth in Los Angeles 3 years ago. This synth is in great functioning condition and was serviced shortly after it was purchased at Main Drag in Brooklyn. There is some slight wear on the wood panels and a few caps missing from the sliders. Missing slider caps can be replaced easily and found on eBay. This synth sounds HUGE. Slight, slow modulation give you that instant Boards of Canada sound! I hate to get rid of it, but I am in need of some dire studio upgrades, so this must go!” Link

“This auction is for one Moog Opus 3 synthesizer. Here’s the story, I bought the keyboard about four years ago and it worked fine albeit for some scratchy sliders. My idea was to restore it to its original condition so I bought new sliding pots and promptly fitted them. Now they work fine but it seems I have caused a problem elsewhere. As you probably know the Opus is divided into three sections; the brass the organ and the strings in fact it’s not really a proper synthesizer at all as it works on organ technology and is polyphonic, although it does have two classic Moog filters. The organ section still works as does the brass but when it comes to the strings they don’t make a sound, only when you switch between 1st and 2nd mode on the articulator section do the strings and chorus briefly sound. So it was self inflicted, I do love this synth it is so warm, full and very punchy. I paid £435 for it and I estimate it would cost me £100 to get it fixed so ill put a starting price at £299 and if it sells great. If not ill get it fixed and sell it for what I paid. I’m saving for a Pro One so I could consider a part x deal. As for condition it’s not too bad, the wooden end cheeks are ok and all knobs and slider caps are original, there is quite a long scratch in the vinyl ( see picture) and the front wood trim under the keyboard although screwed firmly in place now is actually unglued from the other wooden parts. ” Link

“Selling a Moog Opus 3 keyboard. It was serviced a few years ago, according to the previous owner, but I am sure it could use at least a little attention. The only things I notice are some sounds when I turn some knobs and move some sliders. It sounds like slightly dirty pots on a guitar. Since it’s not a guitar, I decided not to clean them, as I am not familiar with the electronics in a keyboard. What I can say is this keyboard makes some really cool sounds, and is in pretty nice cosmetic condition for its age.” Link

“This synth is in good cosmetic shape, and retains most of the original sliders, slider caps, control knobs, toggles, and plastic keys. The walnut-stained wood side panels display scratches and storage wear, though there are no cracks, no splits, and no repairs otherwise. One toggle tip is broken, though the switch still works, and another has been replaced with a screw. Though not pictured an IEC power cable is included.” Link
