ARP 2600 with ARP 3620 Keyboard

” Classic vintage Arp 2600 analog semi-modular synthesizer with model 3620 keyboard in absolute museum quality condition. This synth was in climate controlled storage, and unused for over 25 years of its life. It has just had a complete refurbishing and had it’s op amps upgraded by RetroLinear, and is absolutely 100% guaranteed to be in perfect operational condition. As you can see from the pictures, this synth is in immaculate cosmetic condition, with only the most minor of rub marks on the case. It’s never been on tour, or used for any live performance. It even smells new! You won’t find a cleaner or more perfectly functioning 2600 anywhere.

A complete listing of the recently completed overhaul is detailed below.
