ARP Odyssey

“Near mint fully restored ultra rare (1 of 5?) 1975 odyssey mkII 2810 serial #62 authentic “moog lawsuit” ladder filter model version (all original arp factory made and installed…not a modern clone filter board by “synthchaser” or anyone else). Super clean all around, has all new faders, key bushings and power caps…it is perfect and needs nothing, good to go for many more decades, rarest and best odyssey anywhere. A member of the “Analogue Heaven” synth forum messaged me they have been keeping track of these rare original moog filter models there, and that only 5 are known to still exist, with three of them accounted for by present owners. Original 4035 moog style filters were only used in a handful of 2810’s like this one. You can see it’s filter in the pictures…the light green square board underside with 4035-004REV1 on it in small silver lettering. This one is even more rare in that it also has the earliest factory CV jack option not all moog filter ones had. Also comes with it’s ORIGINAL Arp anvil flight case, another rarity, for great protection in shipping and a cool collectible on it’s own with neat 70s graphics.”

ARP Odyssey

“If you’re interested in a vintage Odyssey, this just might be the one. This rarely used beauty deserves another forever home.

This is that highly sought after rarely used vibe that one hopes for in a classic. In storage most of its life/30 years. Never gigged, a seldom used beauty.

There are the following minor imperfections: the bottom left corner is slightly compromised, see pics. Also, two of the slider caps have now broken while in storage. They can be replaced by third party vendors if you wish; it doesn’t affect the functionality. I brought it into a service center, where they checked it out and confirmed that its working well. Overall this classic works well, is in unusually excellent condition thanks to rare use and is waiting for someone who will appreciate and use it.”

ARP Odyssey

“The Odyssey was ARP’s answer to the Minimoog, a feature packed scaled down version of the legendary ARP 2600. This particular ARP Odyssey is equipped with the 4035 filter, the infamous “lawsuit filter” that “borrowed” from Bob Moog’s ladder filter patent.

This ARP Odyssey has just been serviced and is functioning very well. New sliders & slider caps were installed, power supply recapped, all tantalum capacitors replaced, new slide switches, new key bushings, cleaned key contacts, calibrated, and the 1/4″ output jack made to a high output.”

This ARP Odyssey has just been serviced and is functioning very well. The Synthchaser LED slider & slider cap set has been installed, and the LEDs are color coded to correspond to the original colored slider caps, which give a visual indicator of the function of each control. The difference in the way these sliders feel and perform compared to the originals is a huge improvement. The power supply was recapped, all tantalum capacitors replaced, new key bushings, cleaned key contacts, calibrated, and the 1/4″ output jack made to a high output.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Sequencer

“The work required to properly restore these so they’re working as well as possible and hopefully stay that way long into the future is both time consuming and costly and adds great value to this item. This is of course reflected in its higher than usual price. You will not find a better one anywhere.

In addition to any repairs, we did the following to this unit:

-All slide pots have been replaced with new ones – not low quality replicas of the originals but high quality modern pots that feel good and work perfectly.
-Power supply recapped, trim pots replaced.
-Tantalum capacitors replaced.
-Unit disassembled and cleaned inside and out.
-Recalibrated.
-All jacks cleaned.
-Replaced molex connectors (10).
-Replaced 1, 5, 9, 13 LEDs with slightly brighter LEDs so you may be able to better visualize note divisions.
-Replaced original wooden sides with higher quality new ones.
-Installed new nuts and washers for jack board.
-Systematically tested multiple times, with burn in test.

This process required 14 hours of skilled vintage synth tech time plus around $350-400 in parts. Thanks to this significant investment, this ARP Sequencer works like new again and is way better than the rest. Sure to make anyone looking for a perfectly working ARP Sequencer very happy. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Omni 2

“Arp Omni II Rare Vintage Classic Analog Synth. This is a dream find for any synth lover (it was for me, anyway!!). Sounds great. Classic Joy Division synth sound. Comes with flight case. I’ve listed as pick-up only, but if you wanted to arrange a courier to have it taken further afield please message me to discuss. The flight case is very secure, but bear in mind that it’s extremely heavy in the case and might be very expensive to insure/move.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP PRO-DGX

“Working/partially working vintage synthesizer for parts or repair. Some of the voices work and some don’t. The touch sensor slider probably needs repaired or replaced. I installed a new touch sensor strip and it worked perfectly for a few months. The caps probably need replaced as well because it currently has the originals. I also installed new key bushings because the originals had dried and cracked. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Odyssey

“Odyssey 2800 Mk1
White front
4023 filter
Rotary pitch bend knob
Serial no.281348

Original Mk I ARP odyssey, with the unique sounding type 4023 filter. It has spent most of it’s life in a recording studio and has been regularly maintained and serviced – Power supply recapped and rebuilt, and the keyboard serviced with new bushes.
Modified in the 1980’s by Kenton Electronics – minijack sockets at rear for cv, gate and trigger, inputs and outputs, works really well with a midi-cv converter.
It has always been very reliable with no issues and very stable tuning.
Plays really well, both with the internal keyboard and via midi, and sounds fantastic!

Cosmetically it is very good considering it’s age, there is one bad scratch just in the paint at the front (see photos) , this could probably be touched up and made almost invisible, only the paint is scratched, otherwise there are no serious marks or dents etc. the black printing on the panel is crisp and unworn as is the white panel, aprt from the one scratch it is in excellent shape overall.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Quartet

“ARP Quartet Very good condition. Everything working
fine except the attack slider and led on the brass section.. very probably a simple fix for someone who knows.
Every other slider/switch working fine and as expected.. it’s a lovely sounding machine and I found myself playing on it for ages before putting this listing on.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Pro Soloist

“I’m selling my beloved ARP Pro Soloist synthesizer. These are very rare to come across on eBay. This unit works but the sensitivity requires fixing and that’s keeping the unit from being 100%. The presets on the top play but very low volume, the presets on the bottom sound great. Very few of the presets do not work, my thoughts are that the sensitivity is keeping their volumes very low. I played the unit and some of the presets sound awesome. I even found a preset used by Vangelis who also used to own one of these beauties back in the 1970s. Unfortunately, I wish I could fix the synthesizer but I’m letting go of it because of economic hardship, so my loss is your gain. I cannot ship the unit, you must pick up. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Solina

“Legendary String Machine: ARP Solina String Ensemble SE-4
Good condition, perfectly functional, used only in my smoke-free studio

■ I have used it only in my studio (seen in the pics), always protected by a cover when sitting on the shelves. I have taken great care of this beautiful retro synth in order to prevent any kind of functional defects.
This instrument was manoeuvred by me and me only and played inside my studio under my supervision. All my synths are, I have a large variety of them. I am greatly experienced with analog synths and I made sure to respect this synth by only transporting it in a special hard case and not moving it from the studio except for when I sent it for cleaning and functionality checks. None of the scratch marks and imperfections are caused by me, they were there prior to my purchase of the Solina. The video below show a preview of how beautiful this instrument sounds, proving the reason these are getting more rare.

It comes in a double shock-protection with a shockproof foam box ! Actually is the best box-in-box way to pack for shipping.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

It will be properly packaged when sold and will arrive in the condition as stated”

Sliders are dirty and one is missing.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP 2600 with ARP 3604P Keyboard

“Original Vintage ARP 2600. This is an early Tonus logo 2600, which is prized for a better audio path than later ARP 2600s. Includes the matching 3604P keyboard controller, keyboard cable, power cord, and both lids. Both the synthesizer and keyboard controller have just been serviced by Synthchaser. Work done included:

Power supply recapped, new thermal pads on power supply transistors
Sliders cleaned
All tantalum capacitors replaced (except those in submodules)
Ring Modulator and Sample & Hold submodules replaced with new Synthchaser modules
Both connectors for the keyboard controller and 6 other internal connectors have been replaced for reliable operation
Nuts, washers, knobs and slider caps ultrasonically cleaned
Full calibration under oscilloscope

3604P Keyboard refurbished

New key bushings
Key contacts and bus bars cleaned
Keycaps ultrasonically cleaned
Bellcrank caps cleaned and relubricated
Tantalum capacitors in keyboard electronics recapped

The synthesizer is in good condition. There is a scratch on the panel below the pre-amplifier. The manual gate button contacts are dirty or worn and sometimes it does not trigger. Parts of the tolex case are shinier and it looks like something was on top of it that had been removed. This is most noticeable on the keyboard controller and the lid of the synthesizer, not really on parts you would notice when set up in your studio.

ARP Solus Project Machine

A service and finding the problem will fix this and make it work just fine. I do not have the expertise to fix the problem or I’d be selling a working one!

When plugged in, the unit works and there is power feeding into it but it doesn’t produce sound.

Key action is fine, very clean and pristine exterior.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP String-Ensemble IV

“This amazing synth was owned and used by the jazz legend Alphonse Mouzon. It has his name stenciled on it in a couple places. We have the original manual and some other paperwork in a binder that Alphonse kept with it. There is obviously some wear and tear, faded letters, etc, but it is fully functional. As you can see in the photos, the keys could also stand to be leveled.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Avatar

” This is a really cool and very rare synth. It’s an ARP Avatar, which has been converted from its original guitar-synth form to basically be an Odyssey without keys (but with the addition of a very cool fuzz mode!). It sounds absolutely amazing, and is a very unusual instrument. It’s controlled via CV. I’ll throw in an Arturia Beatstep and some cables to get you started.

This is a US-made synth, so I’ve been using it with an external transformer. I don’t know if it’d work without it — I don’t want to check, for obvious reasons. If you want to try, that’s for you to decide, but transformers are cheap and easy to acquire, so I wouldn’t recommend risking it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Solus Project Machine

“For sale, a vintage ARP Solus that is being sold as is for parts or needs repair. The keyboard powers on but does not make any sounds. Great project for a tech to get into as The ARP Solus is a light and portable synth that lies somewhere between the Axxe and the Odyssey. The Solus is monophonic with 2 oscillators that include pulse-width-modulation and a digital ring modulator. An FM slider allows for an external sound source to be ring modulated through VCO #1 which gives this synth added function as an analog ring modulator perfect for creating wacky sounds. A great sounding ARP VCF (filter) adds a nice touch. Pitch bending is accomplished using a simple knob. Designed for portability this synth comes packaged in a very nicely built road case. It has been used by Tangerine Dream.””
