2500, ARP @ 10 July 2019, “No Comments”

“Tonus Model 2002 predecessor to ARP 2500

only around 20 units produced between 1970-1971 before production started on the later ARP 2500 Model 2515.
Recently fully restored by Phil Cirocco at CMS Discrete Synthesizers in the US
Additional calibration and snagging carried out by Keith Kniveton at Lucid Sound in the UK
Cabinet fully restored.

Modules
2 X Model 1004T VCO
1 X Model 1004R VCO (very rare rocker switch module)
1 X Model 1033 Dual Env
1 X Model 1006 Filt/Amp
1 X Model 1027 Sequencer
2 X Model 1026 Preset/Voltage Module (clones, see details below)
1 X Model 1002 Power Control Module (modified for European use)
Keyboard Model 3221

System serial no. 008 built in 1970.

As part of the schedule of works, Phil replaced the power supplies with modern linear models.

All modules were assessed and repairs carried out as needed. Trimmers were added as per ARP specs to aid future calibration.

1002 power module had upgraded front panel on/off switches to work under European 220V power specs.

1026 modules are a short run produced in very low numbers last year, the 1026 was only ever a prototype and never formally released. It syncs to the 1027 sequencer and 2 x 1026’s can be daisy chained which is how its currently configured. They introduce random elements to sequencer steps and are highly complex, interacting with each other.

This has been a no expense spared restoration and has taken around 6 years to complete.

Phil C commented it was the earliest system he’s ever worked on and was ‘historically significant’

Sonically, it sounds incredible and even in its current layout can sound very complex, admittedly its not the most advanced of configurations and there are currently 2 blank module spaces that could add more tone colour if populated with additional modules.

this is a rare opportunity to pick up an icon of electronic music.

I’m now starting work on a second system so letting this one go.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP, Axxe @ 12 June 2019, Comments Off on ARP Axxe Project Machine

” I’m not going to even try to “sugarcoat” this vintage Arp Axxe monolithic Synthesizer. It LOOK’s terrible! Some of the control sliders finger tabs are broken off, but can still be moved with your fingernail, (not convenient but it works). It looks as if the previous owner cleaned the unit every day, all the panel flow diagrams are almost worn off and hard to read. The keyboard is in good condition – cosmetically and the does work, but all the contacts need cleaning and do clean up.

I have dabbled with keyboards and synthesizers for many years, as an technician, not a musician.This Arp AXXE does have a heartbeat! I plugged it in this morning and found that many of the functions work as they should! The oscillators, VCO & LFO’s work, Noise Gen. works, VCA works, Mixer works, Envelope Generator (ASDR) work. As I mentioned above many of the electrical contacts need cleaning in order to eliminate some of the “dead or scratchy spots”. Alcohol and Q-tips seem to work well. The circuit board seems to be original – no modifications and it appears that it has never been removed. This vintage synthesizer IS NOT DOA and with some TLC it should function ALMOST as it did when it was new.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

3620, ARP @ 12 June 2019, Comments Off on Akai 3620 Keyboard for ARP 2600

“Rare opportunity

ARP 2600 model 3620 keyboard by itself, with two foot switch pedals (modified aftermarket).

Must See to Appreciate – Pics don’t do it justice
Zero corrosion on nickel surfaces, including fasteners
Flawless lustrous tolex
Mirror polished scratch-free keytops
New zinc plating on key levers – no corrosion
All keys leveled and aligned and even
New Teflon key bushings
New clear silicone key stops
Zero key clicks, ticks, clacks, squeaks, stickiness, or sluggishness
No mushiness. Key depression and release are crisp with just the
right amount of bounce for a synth action keyboard.
Side to side key play is crisp with definitive stops.
Fully reconditioned potentiometers. Sliders and knob glide like butter
Bus bars and wipers fully disassembled and polished
All key timings adjusted and tested
All jack contacts polished and tested
All voltages freshly calibrated

Imperfections that don’t show up in pics: Some micro-pitting on the handle flanges – only visible from two inches away, otherwise looks bright. Two 2 mm touch-ups on upper edge of control panel – not visible unless you know where they are.

One owner from 1983 to present.

These were only ever sold with the synthesizer.
If you have a 2600 with the older 3604P keyboard and wished you had the 3620, or you have a TTSH and want a real ARP 2600 advanced keyboard, now is your chance.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Model number 2321

The synth was the property of my late brother & I am selling it as part of his estate.
Unfortunately, I have little knowledge of this sort of equipment & I have only been able to carry out some basic checks as follows:

When plugged into an active speaker & powered up it makes an oscillating noise, which can be varied using each of the sliders.
It also responds to each individual key on the keyboard.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP, Pro Soloist @ 22 May 2019, Comments Off on ARP Pro Soloist

“Rare find for me
1970s ARP Synth.
Stored for many years
it is in good condition
and comes with original music holder
but screws to hold it down are missing.
I am no expert in this
so please here me out.
The keyboard does power up
and after a warm up time
does play.
However, when switching on the effects
some work only slightly, partly
or not at all.
It is in need of
complete cleaning of all controls,
refurbishing and or repairs.
There is lots of info
on these on Youtube.
Videos about repairing them also.
Wonderful piece of 1970s music history,
sold as-is.

ARP, Quadra @ 15 May 2019, Comments Off on ARP Quadra Project Machine

“Due to a non paying bidder, this item is being relisted.

This ARP Quadra was serviced a few years ago by MIKE Metz at Thesis Audio Service in Kansas. After I got it back from him, it was fully functional and beautiful.

It is still beautiful, just not fully functional anymore. I know that the sliders are all intact, the membrane switches all work, could only need just a little bit of money to get it running.

Since Mike worked on this last, I would recommend sending it to him for service.

This Quadra has a unique modification. The switch on the left side, which was professionally installed, allows you to take the chorus effect out of the mono signal which is pretty cool. An extra feature added that you do not see on any Quadras that I have seen.

I was told this Quadra was once owned by John Elefante of Kansas before he joined Kansas. I believe Mike even told me that he worked on this synth while he toured with Kansas at one point back in the day.

This unit comes with an anvil case for safe shipping, and a spare custom programmed CPU.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Excellent condition original early 70s Mk1 White ARP Odyssey – easily the best sounding revision with the original “lawsuit” Moog clone filter. This one is very fine physical condition with a nice bright white panel and keys and all slider caps intact. It works perfectly, tunes up fast and sounds absolutely huge. It was serviced a few years ago by Switched-On in Austin and includes a few useful mods along with a new power cable. There is a switch for mono/duophonic mode, LFO sync to key and CV/Trig/Gate in/out and filter input all of which increase the functionality of this already excellent synth. I’ve owned many of these of the years and this is easily one of the nicest examples I’ve seen of this model and should make its next owner very happy for years to come.

ARP, Odyssey @ 24 April 2019, Comments Off on ARP Odyssey

“I’m selling my original US made full size vintage ARP Odyssey. It’s flightcased and in excellent working and cosmetic condition having been regularly serviced over the years. It was toured professionally throughout its past and has been recently kept in a studio.

The synth has a couple of extra features commissioned by the original owner.

Firstly the pitch wheel is sprung so it jumps back to its central position making using it in performance much easier. There is also an extra control to adjust the amount of the pitch change. There is a knob which adjusts a delay on modulation so that you can adjust the attack on the modulation used. This can be turned on and off with the extra switch. Otherwise the synth is a typical black and gold faced early Odyssey. All keys work and the oscillators and tuning are extremely stable. There is plenty online about this version of the synth. The manual is a modern reproduction but included. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” ARP Omni . Condition is Used. Powers and and all keys sound. All controls seem to work.This unit is incredibly RARE…

The Omni is an analog synth with preset Orchestral String sounds. It has polyphonic Violin and Viola waveforms as well as monophonic Bass and Cello waveforms. It is split into 3 sections: Strings, Synthesizer, and Bass synth – all simultaneously available. It has traditional and simple VCA, VCF, and LFO controls for contouring your sounds as well as a nice chorus that really thickens up the string sound. It has no program memory.
All Items I am listing were tested and photographed in 2012. They were then wrapped in plastic and stored. I will test EVERY unit before shipping and will reach out to buyers if there are any issues.This is my personal museum collection, which I have been building for 30 years, and it is painful to sell but we need money.Most items have manuals and I will be digging for those as well…I would never intentionally deceive anyone and will endeavor to make sure ALL buyers are happy” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Many 2600s are electronically flaky, and most of any of the keyboards are internally a wreck — but not this pairing.
