Prophet 5, Sequential Circuits @ 06 July 2017, Comments Off on Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3.3

“Serial # 1000-3675

Flight Case included. Near Mint.

This item has been in a smoke free studio since it’s purchase in the 80’s. Never gigged with. As you can tell from the photos, she is a beauty with very little wear (some minor dings and scratches) It sounds amazing and is fully functional minus a few hiccups:

1. As with all of these Prophet’s, the bushings on the keyboard have worn out so the action is janky as is. BUT, I’m including a brand new set of bushings with lubrication. Unfortunately I don’t have the time to make the change myself, but one can change the bushings easily and in less than two hours … see youtube.

2. Two of the LEDS are out: OSC B SAW & Unison — both buttons still function … the leds are just burnt out.

3. In the Wheel-Mod section, the PW A button is stuck. Easily remedied by opening the synth up and unsticking it.

Other than than those minor problems the synth functions beautifully and sounds glorious. The synth looks and sounds flawless minus the minimal wear from being almost 40 years old. Make those small changes to the bushings and unsticking the button, and this synth is close to Mint.” Link

“This Prophet 5 polyphonic synthesizer doesn’t currently function.The buyer would have to repair it if they have experience in electronics engineering or have a technician make the repairs.I don’t know what the malfunctions are so buyer BEWARE!Bid at your own risk!The synth will be shipped wrapped in foam sheeting and placed into a bag with several silica gel packets for reducing moisture. More foam sheeting will be stuffed into the box to minimize movement. The box will be sealed with contact cement as well as taped in order to keep it secure.” Link

Prophet 5, Sequential Circuits @ 01 June 2017, Comments Off on Sequential Circuits Prophet Rev 5

“For auction here is a vintage Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev2……..serial number 486. This a one owner P-5. I purchased this Prophet new, in 1978, and used it for approximately three years. It was then put into storage inside its Anvil case in my warehouse/rehearsal building. That building, which I have occupied for the past four decades was sold last summer, and I got notice I would have to move out. I got the Prophet out last fall, and it would not power up correctly. I shipped it to Wine Country Sequentials in early April. Wine Country has been servicing and modifying Sequential Circuits product since the early 1980’s, when the Sequential factory ceased operations. They are considered the Prophet 5 experts. I received delivery back from Wine Country last week, and this Prophet has been refurbished and serviced, and is now ready for a new owner.
The Rev2 Prophets were designed with the revered SSM chips, and are considered by most to be among the warmest, fattest sounding synths ever produced. The sound and flexibility of the Prophet 5’s are legendary. This one keeps with that tradition, and sounds incredible.
This Prophet is in excellent cosmetic condition. When I took it out of storage, I discovered that the guest keyboard player in our band had put tape with preset locations written on it, on six keys at our last gig, and the tape was not removed when the Prophet was put back in the case. When I removed the tape last fall it left some gray discoloration on those keys. It is not really that noticeable, and of course does not affect operation at all.
A viewer asked what the modification between the Master Tune and the volume pots is It’s a 1978 Sparkomatic LED dashboard clock that is held there with double sided sponge tape. I put it on when I bought the Prophet to keep an eye on the set times while playing gigs. Still works………..it will pull right off. Sorry,I did forget to mention it when I posted the unit.
The original Anvil flight case is included with the Prophet, and all new foam lining has just been installed in the case.” Link

p5rev “Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2 fully serviced in good cosmetic and very good mechanical condition.

I personally drove the Prophet 5 to “Klosman” Prophet 5 service specialist in Oakland, Ca. and had him completely service/restore the whole synth for me sparing no expense.

The P5 also recently underwent a light finish restoration to maintain the wood, but not lose any of the original vintage character of the cabinet. Cabinet is very smooth.

This p5 stays in tune all the way up the keyboard and all functions work 100% and sounds just as it should!

It was just played by a tech and given a very clean bill of health before putting up for sale.

Here is a complete list of work done to the synth:

Power supply: replaced cord, bypass caps; rewired for 2716 ROMs

Front panel: replaced pot, 3 dead LEDs, bypass caps; cleaned pots & switches.

CPU board: replaced battery, bypass caps, U337 DAC reference, ROMs.

Voice board: replaced caps, LM311 tune comparator, LM348 quad opamp, one SSM2020 VCA, two SSM2040 VCF chips.

Replaced rear panel 1/4 jacks. Replaced fuse holder. Replace Rear P5 Sticker with nos original.

This synth is a very nice example of a fully functioning REV 2 Prophet 5″ Link

Here’s the work I had done: Rebuilt the power supply, REBUILT KEYBOARD & SPRINGS, Installed new front panel potentiometers, Installed new CEM 3340 {repaired LFO], reflowed all interconnects inside to insure reliability, cleaned and reseated all IC chips in their sockets, cleaned and refurbished all cable assemblies, headers and interconnects and loaded factory patch set #2. Tested all functions. All work was performed by Pro Audio in Tampa Florida. I spent over $1600 on this Prophet 5 to make it 100% correct and playable. It should last you a long, long time. I didn’t redo the wood case so there are some bumps and scratches. If you want a pristine wood case use sandpaper and oil. A word on Prophet 5 synths: Everyone seems to want the Rev 2.2. The oscillators on the Rev 2.2 didn’t stay in tune. The Rev 3 series fixed the slipping oscillator problem. ” Link

Huge warm analog tone, maybe the most classic of all the polysynths, the Rev 2 is THE Prophet 5 to get as it has a warmer tone than the Rev 3 versions with the Curtis Chips.

p5 “You are looking at a Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 (Rev 2.0) serial #1258 that is being sold for parts.

Unit was abandoned at our shop several years ago after customer had unsuccessfully tried to repair it himself. In its current state, the unit powers on but does not boot up and there is zero panel activity or audio. All the rotary pots have been replaced with non-original pots which do NOT fit with the original knobs. Power supply has been modified (transistor leads flown in with additional wire as opposed to being hard-soldered to board). Missing several screws holding bottom panel to wood chassis of unit.

Glancing inside, several IC’s/components are missing and several IC’s are marked with blue tape. The extent of repair necessary to bring the unit back to working order is unknown, though likely to be expensive. Unit comes with hard case, which has no padding on the interior, it is being included for shipping purposes only. We will of course, pack the case for safe shipping.

Again, this instrument is to be sold for parts or repair. We cannot provide any further information regarding repairs that have been done to the unit already. This unit is sold as-is. Please see photos for all details. Please do not ask to have us cancel the auction early or make offers.

Happy fixing.” Link

p5 “Condition: Excellent – imperfections are hard to find.

Many owners say the SSM chip based Rev 2 simply sounds better (significantly more rounded and fuller) than the other Revs. This is why the Rev 2 is the most coveted model of the Prophet lineage. This Prophet responds quick and predictable on all 61 keys. Response of the 61 keys, knobs, and switches are clean, accurate and precise.

I am the original owner of this Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 and personally delivered it to Sequential Circuits N 1st Street San Jose, CA for maintenance and upgrades. The Prophet 5 was recently serviced by Wine Country Productions Inc. (ex-Sequential techs) and passed an engineered functional test which systematically checks every aspect of the instrument to assure that all electronics and features are operating reliably and within factory specifications.

The Prophet 5 was designed to be a true 5 voice polyphonic analog synthesizer with the ability to store and recall patches. This particular Prophet 5 is a Rev 2 and although it does not have midi, Kenton Electronics makes a Profit 5 Midi Retrofit Kit for the Prophet 5 Rev 2.
