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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

oddy “For sale is a:

ARP Odyssey 2800 MK1 Whiteface Synthesizer

This is a truly awesome and rare synth to come across. While containing the original
vintage parts, this synth was also modified to enhance the playability and look. I will try my best to give an accurate description of this synth!

A few quick specs on the synth. It has 37 keys. It is surprisingly lightweight and portable, weighing a little over 20 pounds. It measures roughly 23 (L) x 18 (W) x 7 (H).
It has two oscillators, an LFO, high pass filter, other standard features, and some other cool additions such as portamento, noise, S/H, oscillator sync, and ring mod. It sounds phenomenal- it has a very gritty vintage vibe, but also produces cutting lead tones similar to a Model D. The low end is very fat and gets a nice squeal sound when the resonance is pushed. Mentioning the resonance, it is extremely powerful (be careful!)- it self oscillates really easily- i find it sounds best at the mid to 3/4 mark on the pot. The HPF is very smooth and can produce a wide range of tones just by opening and closing the filter slightly. My favorite features without a doubt are the noise and ring mod. I have never enjoyed using noise more than I do with this synth. The ring mod also gives your tone a nice nasty kick in the high end and sounds great! Other features such as adjustable pulse width, adjustable S/H, and oscillator sync are very handy. It is without a doubt a beast of an analog synth!

The physical condition is good given the age of the synth. There is some wear across the front panel, including various dents, marks and scratches. Most of this wear is small and is not noticeable unless viewed close up. The lettering on the synth is also in good shape. All of the wording on the white front panel is legible and unfaded. The ARP Odyssey logo on the right front has a couple of smudge marks. The logo and lettering on the back of the Odyssey is in very good shape, with little wear or fading. The original “Model 2800” sticker on the back is also in great shape.

Functionally, this synth is in very good condition. It seems that every knob and function is working well. The pots are working pretty smoothly and do not have much resistance or scratchiness. This synth was recently calibrated in April of this year, so it should be set to work reliably for a while! It is likely that this synth will need to be maintained and/or repaired every now and then, so please keep that in mind.

Now I would like to mention the awesome mods done to this synth. This Odyssey has been customized with “Galaxy” themed sides! These sides look superb because they are not over the top flashy, but add a nice visual element to the synth. They were given a protective paint coating so the design will not fade or smudge when touched.

On top of these sides, the most notable and important mod is the next level aftertouch keyboard. This is not your normal aftertouch, because it is fully customizable! As you can see in the photos, the front panel has a “Pyxis” aftertouch system installed. This system basically lets you control the effect of the aftertouch. You can route the aftertouch to the LFO, the cutoff filter, VCA, and pitch bend. You can also control things like LFO speed and the cutoff point of the filter with the adjustable knobs on the Pyxis panel. You can even have these parameters in use simultaneously. This is a very handy and high end mod that really brings this synth to another level!

This synth also includes an LFO free run mod. There is one more switch on the synth, but I am actually not sure of what it does. I believe it might be some sort of reverse function for the Pyxis, but I have never used it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Kurzweil @ 30 August 2016, Comments Off on Kurzweil K2000

k2 ” This is a Kurzweil K2000 with pretty much every option that is available for this model. It has a built-in SCSI hard drive with cooling kit with all available Kurzweil factory sound banks installed and the maximum amount of memory that can be installed. The display has an EL backlight kit to make the display much more readable in low light. The floppy drive worked the last time I used it but I haven’t used it for a long time (using MIDI transfers from the computer is easier anyway).

There are a few small lines in the LCD display but it doesn’t make it unreadable and is probably fixable if you have the patience. There are (free) computer display emulators that are easier to use anyway so to me it wasn’t an issue. There is some slight wear from use but the side that matters is almost like new and all the labeling is clear and readable as it was new.

The keyboard is velocity sensitive with aftertouch and the pitch and modulation wheels work well. It also has two sliders that can be assigned to various parameters depending on the sound patch.

Everything works, all outputs are clean and distortion free, the 10 GB hard drive works very well. I will leave whatever patches are on it now.

This has been a fantastic keyboard and is still one of my favorites.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

tvs “1978, oberheim two voice synth with rare sequencer module.
cosmetically in excellent condition, surprising for it’s age.
functionally absolutely gorgeous, totally working in all aspects.
recently had a session in studio with a well known electronic musician/composer from LA,
and we had both this synth and the new two voice pro side by side.
we had a chance to carefully A/B them.
wow, the old SEM modules in this vintage two voice were profoundly richer.
so i can personally vouch for that reality, having used my own ears.
very, very musical synth.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Minimoog, Moog @ 29 August 2016, Comments Off on Moog Minimoog Model D

mmd” This is a beautiful example of an early oscillator board Mini. Serial number is 2433. I bought it recently, here on ebay, in fair condition. However, it really needed more attention. I sent it over to Chris at This Old Synth for restoration and modification. Its been painstakingly gone through.

– The old P&R key bed has been replaced with the Opto-key kit (non-midi).
– All key bushings have been replaced and keys leveled and hand cleaned.
– Various aging (badly) components replaced.
– Edge card connectors tightened up.
– Pots and switches cleaned.
– Octave buffer kit installed for better tuning stability (holy cow, what a difference!)
– The Dead Band mod on the pitch wheel was installed.
– Tuned and scaled.

This synth sounds and feels like a DREAM. You will not easily find one of these in this condition, without spending a lot of money and time to fix it. In fact, unfortunately for me, I’ve dug a little hole of debt between the original purchase and restoration of this synth. I can’t justify keeping it. I’m actually pretty upset about it. Truly, I’d love for this to go to someone who can afford to keep it forever. Sure, you can order the reissue from Moog, but this one just oozes character. Totally worth it!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Moog, Rogue @ 29 August 2016, Comments Off on Moog Rogue

used reogue “Moog The Rogue Model 342A. Serial number 9411. These were produced 1981-1983.

Works perfectly. All of the keys, switches, and knobs work fine. Excellent cosmetic condition, a few minor scratches, control panel is perfect. A few small marks (could be dirt, I haven’t tried to clean them) on three of the keys. The volume knob isn’t original. The small pieces of foam over the toggle switches have been removed since the material was deteriorating, par for the course with ageing foam rubber. Remarkably fine condition for a thirty-four year old keyboard!

The power supply’s not original, it’s an Aphex AA-2460 of the same specs, 24 volts AC, 600 mA. Its plug was different that the one for the Rogue, so I had to splice on a 1/8” mini phone plug that fit the Moog’s recessed socket. I’m experienced with this type of work so it was done expertly and should hold up fine provided care is taken not to yank it out by the cord (which you should never do anyway!)” Click here to visit listing on eBay

It has all the white slider caps, runs at 110v USA voltage and includes the rare footswitch. The SVC350 is similar to vocoder section in the VP330, but in a smaller rack form. Yet unlike the VP330, the SVC350 has graphic EQ section that allows you to shape the tone with more control than a VP330 does. This is a classic sounding vocoder, really awesome with vocals and synthesizers but especially cool when paired with drum machines, guitars and effects. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
