# ARP 2600 with 3604P Keyboard

2600, 3604, ARP @ 03 June 2015

userd arp2600“Arp 2600, Model 3604-p keyboard. Manuals and Patchbook for the 2600, new patch cables, power cord, and keyboard to synth connector plus keyboard extension cable. Pictures are of the actual unit for sale.

The synth is fully functioning and sounds amazing. It could however probably use a service at an appropriate point. A few of the sliders are a little noisy and will need cleaning or replacing.

The unit has been tinkered with in it’s past to add in some additional pots and switches. They actually add some really useful functionality. Each oscillator has an extra pot which provides extra fine tune which is really useful when dialling in any syncing between the oscillators. Each oscillator also has a 3 position switch that switches the oscillator octave. Very useful for building stacked oscillators quickly rather than using the frequency slider. On the ADSR you can see a switch over the attack and release sliders. The attack switch doubles the attack range and the release switch half the release range.

Overall the condition on the tolex would be best described as ‘well used’. Understandable for its age. I would suggest this is not an example for the purest synth collector but rather a great example of a 2600 to be played and used. The modifications greatly help the playability of the synth. I have found them really useful over the 5 years I have owned this wonderful synth. I will be very sorry to see her go.

The synth has spent the last 5 years in my home studio. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
