juno106 “Roland Juno 106 for repair.
I bought this one to rebuild, but I have stopped rebuilding them.
I bought this one as it was in good cosmetic condition (I never repaint them).
I had already rounded up a set of end plates and keys to replace the 2 missing and 2 broken keys in the unit.
End plates and keys are included with this unit.

I had removed the voice cards and stripped the epoxy off, but none were salvageable, so this unit has no voice cards, but the through holes are clear and ready to solder in sockets for new ones.
I also believe this unit will need a new power supply board.
I am not completing this last unit as I have run out of voice cards and don’t want to buy another lot.
Two sliders are broken on this unit.

Note – The only cosmetic issue with the case is a slight dent on the front at the very upper left corner. You can see the scratches in the next to last picture. It is not bad, but not perfectly smooth in that area either.” Link

esq1 “This is the famous synthesizer of the 1980s, the Ensoniq Esq-1. This particular unit is not working and sold “as is.”

The unit powers up but does not produce sound, nor does the display screen fully illuminate – you can detect a faint glowing beneath the screen but nothing more and nothing you could read or learn anything from.

There are various cosmetic imperfections, nicks and scratches throughout – some of the keys are chipped. Some of the buttons on the top right side have come unstuck.

Yes, this unit is pretty beat up but it could be the perfect thing to help you with your personal synthesizer restoration project.

SOLD “AS IS” – FOR PARTS – NOT WORKING”

super jx “This unit has several keys that do not play (though most work fine), and the push-buttons do not all work consistently. The audio engine appears to work fine and the display works well. It clearly needs to be cleaned up and likely some button panels need to be replaced or cleaned. I do not have the time nor the expertise for that so I am offering this to a collector or synth repairman to clean up and get it running like it should.” Link

opus3 ” Used Moog Opus 3 analog synth with hard shell road case on wheels, sustain footswitch, and power cable. Quintessential, awesome, vintage, analog synth sounds from this unit that could use a little TLC. It saw a good amount of gigging thirty years ago and was recently dusted off from storage. It’s got some typical road wear (particularly on the wood paneling and a missing on/off switch for the chorus mode) and the following functionality seems to need repair: the chorus mode, “VCF Contour”, and “Articular Release”” Link

pro_one “Sequential Circuits Pro One with MTG Turbo CPU + MIDI fitted.
The ultimate upgrade for one of the world’s most loved monosynths!

For sale is my SCI Pro One synthesizer. This is a rare synth going up in value all the time…that’s because it sounds awesome! Huge bass, leads, effects, with cool cross mod section that only a Pro One has. Similar to the P5 but has it’s own unique sound. This Pro One is fully functional & in excellent cosmetic condition for it’s age, J-wire keyboard and has the MTG Turbo CPU & MIDI retrofit fitted which turns it into a beast and integrates perfectly with any computer / midi based set-up. Really nice clean shape on the front, overall quite clean. Don’t miss out on this monophonic analog classic!

It’s recently been fully serviced and checked-up by my tech. It’s been cleaned, scaled & tuned, new membranes on keyboard & keyboard cleaned. Everything is 100% functional & playing beautifully now. No scratchy pots or bad sticky keys. Don’t waste money on a Pro One that hasn’t been serviced & requires work.” Link

sem “I’m selling this vintage 70′s Oberheim SEM module that is in excellent condition. This is an original – not the re-issue. I recently purchased this item, but was a bit hasty in my decision – as this is not the standalone SEM. It’s the module version that you would drop into a vintage Two Voice, Four Voice or Eight Voice synthesizer. (or you could incorporate into a modular system)

I had seriously considered converting it into a stand alone unit with my synth tech with a case and PSU – but I just have too many other projects going on currently. Anyone looking for a near mint condition SEM module will be very happy. The board and caps are exceptionally clean, and the SEM is in perfect working order. Bonus : It also has an extra LED light added that shows the LFO rate. It will be well packed and insured .. ” Link

dx7with3 “This DX7 was purchased new by my husband directly from Yamaha (where I used to work) in the ’80s. So, he’s the sole owner of this fine instrument. When I power it up, it says that it needs a new internal battery. So, I really can’t test it. (I wouldn’t know how to test it, anyway.) This auction also includes two ROM cartridges and two RAM cartridges. This synth looks to be in good shape. It includes a heavy-duty touring case in great shape. Foam is good. It comes from a clean, smoke free environment. I do not know how much he used this when he played in bands locally. I think this was more of an instrument he used in his home recording studio. Please feel free to email me with questions or for more photos. It is so heavy that I am only able to offer pick up from my home. Thank you for looking.” Link

used-yamaha-dx7 “Rare Vintage 1984 Yamaha DX7 digital synthesizer with 3 memory cartridges, sustain pedal, volume pedal, heavy-duty flight/road case, music stand, MIDI cables, and an audio out cable. These professional synths don’t have built-in speakers so you would use headphones or patch it to an amp or another digital instrument. Excellent condition.

The DX7 was THE synth for bands in the 80′s and 90′s, ushering in the age of digitally sampled sound.

This is a professional historic instrument that would be perfect for a band, musical group, church, or anyone wanting to play that cool 80′s synth sound that you loved in Stranger Things.

Originally paid $2000 for the synth + $200 for the case. Original owner, antique / museum quality from a music-loving, caring household. ” Link

s5 “In working order.To clarify:After some deeper testing, the pots are a still scratchy at first, but faded after 5 minutes of use. I powered up and checked on it a few times over a span of 3 hours, and the only flaw I can find is a dirty octave selector switch. In low mode (32′ 16′) it selects fine, but the upper octaves (8′ 4′ 2′) and the switch needs to be jiggled a bit before the tuning locks. Once it does, it doesn’t waiver or drift.” Link

split8 “I am listing this rare, awesome Sequential Circuits Split Eight as is, for repair. Heres the details…

It powers up great, passes auto tune upon power up… ALL buttons, keys and knobs were great. It sounds AMAZING… Great 80s analog goodness here. BUT…

I could never get the MIDI jacks to work… There are particular menus in the synth can can change midi channel and turn midi on or off or Omni on and off. I never really understood those menus so it might me my operator error or it could actually be a midi power issue.

Also… the battery was replaced recently and when that was done, all patches were wiped out. I managed to create about 30 really cool patches but there are 60 blank patches. You can either do what i did and simply create your own or load them via cassette as indicated in the manual.

SO… Because of the midi thing and the blank 60 presets, it is sold as is, as for repair.

Otherwise, you are getting a GREAT 80s analog synth… one of dave smiths best.”

“RMIF ELSITA”. It is a powerfull 4 channel analog drum synthesizer, produced in the USSR in 1980s. It has 4 identical channels (which can be used & edited freely). On every channel you can change: trigger signal sensitivity, tone, attack, release, tone\noise balance, filter, volume level. Each channel has trigger Input on a standart 1/4 mono Jack for 4 pads. It can be triggered from any drum pads like classic Simmons or modern Roland\Yamaha

mc-202 “You’ll have a hard time finding an exceptionally clean 202 that is in such outstanding shape.
The bag has some very light scuffs, but looks excellent and the padding is in good shape.

Everything works perfectly – sliders / switches / pots are smooth and uniform in their feel, and it appears this 202 has seen very little use over the years.
I keep coming back to the 202 (this is the third one I’ve owned), as it’s incredibly fun to use but I haven’t been using it lately.
Japanese manuals are included. There is a small / slight stain on the interior of the bag as seen in the pics (smaller than a dime).” Link

2600 “ARP 2600 – SN 2601-0613

Lovely example of pure analog synthesis. Famous examples of its signature sounds are abundant.

This system lineage:

Casey Young: Bought new. Designed keyboard setup for Rick Wakeman of YES. Toured with YES as off-stage fill-in keyboardist. Later, Casey taught synthesizers in Portland Oregon. Michael Garrison was one of his students, and bought the instrument from him.

Michael Garrison: Electronic musician and performing artist. Met fellow electronic musician Craig Padilla at a performance in Mt Shasta California where the two exchanged notes about performing electronic music live, and became friends. Sadly, Michael passed away much too young.

Craig Padilla: Arranged to purchase this instrument from the estate of Michael Garrison. This instrument was then used by Skip Murphy and Craig Padilla in their studio, and can be seen on some YouTube videos.

Skip Murphy: Well, we now have 2 of these ARP 2600’s, so it is somewhat redundant. Now is time to sell this one so that somebody else can enjoy it, and add to its lineage.

Recently cleaned and calibrated by George Mattson, of Mattson Modular. It is in full working order but missing one slider cap on Sample and Hold Rate. That doesn’t affect performance, and you could get a matching cap online if you like. No keyboard, just the synth. It was most recently used with various analog step sequencers, but any 1 volt per octave keyboard or source will run it. Will throw in some patch cords too, but it plays without any patch cords required, due to the unique normalization design. This unit is absolutely stock, with no modifications I am aware of.

Clean and no noticeable flaws, except for the missing slider cap mentioned. Minor scuff marks on the Tolex, as one would expect for an instrument of this vintage. Will be professionally packed and shipped UPS, as they have a good history with shipping this synth.” Link

octave_cat_ “This version has both discrete VCO’s (CA3046 based) and a discrete filter (CA3080 based. Similar to a Roland IR3109 filter). Not like the SMR/SMRII which used Curtis chips for the VCO’s and filter.

The side panels are in fairly good shape with the exception of a couple drill holes on the sides. I’m assuming someone mounted a guitar strap to it at one point.

I have replaced all the key bushings. All PCB’s have been recapped. The PSU has been rebuilt. Fully calibrated. The pic shows the trimmer caps missing but I have those and will replace them before it ships.” Link

minitmoog ” Extremely rare Moog Synth. This synth does work. The Filter and Modulation, Glide and Volume sliders are all functioning, as are the preset sounds. Two of the keys need work, sometimes they modulate up and down, but the rest of them function consistently.

I disconnected the touch sensor bar. As I’m sure many of you know, the TSB was flawed in minitmoogs. I simply pulled one of the two lines from the TSB out of it’s plastic junction and wrapped it in tape. Nothing destructive. So, the aftertouch capability is disabled, but the bar is still in there and likely repairable.” Link

It’s been serviced just before sale including cleaning all the buttons, pads, knobs and sliders so everything is super clean and triggering smoothly. It’s fully functional and ready to make beats in your studio. Disk drive works great. The only thing worth mentioning is the backlight is not as bright as it was when new, which is common for these old machines, but replacements are available online and the screen is still readable and does have some light left to it (pics doesn’t show it so much because I took it in daylight). Cosmetically it’s in nice shape, it does show some wear so check out the pictures below to make sure you like it. Comes with power cable.” Link
