“The ARP Axxe is a completely variable synthesizer, ideal for live performance operation. The Axxe provides many of the features of more expensive synthesizers and can serve as the nucleus of a larger synthesizer system by interfacing with other ARP instruments.

The Axxe contains one Voltage Controlled Oscillator, one Voltage Controlled Filter, one Voltage Controlled Amplifier, a Low Frequency Oscillator, Keyboard Control Voltage Memory, Sample and Hold, Noise Generator, and ADSR Envelope Generator.

This synth is missing the color covers on the sliders. It could be in better shape but everything works except the S & H button is missing. That’ is why the price is much lower than the others here on ebay.”

“For sale is a vintage ARP Axxe Synthesizer (Model 2323) synthesizer that is in superb physical and is 100% functional. It comes with a special built plywood case. The Axxe is a vintage, American-made monosynth with a rich, fat analog tone. This synth is not a cheap Japanese (but made in China) clone. It is the real deal. Not only does this synth look great, sound great, and play as if it was only a couple of years old, it is collector’s item from the golden age of analog synthesis. Unlike the recent Odyssey clone by Korg, the electronic circuits in this synth have not been redesigned and the circuit boards aren’t stuffed with cheap, Chinese substitute components ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This has been used on the road and has a few scrapes, scratches, and battle wounds.
On the left side the wood panel has been cracked from picking it up on it’s side
the side wood panel has been glued back together
the sliders slide but could use some spray slider lubricants to slide more freely
the synth itself works great as it should.
there is a switch at the top labeled random s/h doesn’t have it’s on off switch but can be accessed with a toothpick or small poker type item
The Metal Axxe Badge on the front right fell off at some point. If you are the high bidder I will save your address and if and when I find it I will mail it to you but for now it is not on the front.
One knob slider has broken off. you can see all of this in the photos and all of these mentioned items are just cosmetic…the knob still slides and is functional
Other Than cosmetics this works perfectly and makes sounds like the Star Wars laser shots as well as deep low base, and lots of other dialed in effects
I remember some paper that we would lay over the top of the knobs and dial in a sound
these might be available out there online.
The manual is downloadable.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I purchased this vintage analog synth with the hopes of finding time to get it going again… alas no time for such fun so its time to move this wonderful sounding synth to someone who will love it. The face membrane has a crack in it which I believe is cosmetic ( see photos for details of scratches etc etc). The main issue is it powers up but makes no sound. There is a great tech in Boston that was the right hand man for A.R.P. himself who should be able to help anyone who buys this to get it going. I was always an ARP guy and loved the sounds of this.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Cosmetically there is a wood chipped on the top left panel, it seems that only the timber itself was damaged, and 2 slider coloured plastic covers are missing-pulse width mod and vcd freq. Always has been looked after and in great shape, although I bought a copy of the 12 page service manual online, it has cool info like calibration points, comes with it.

“ODYSSEY is 2 VCO, but its 1 VCO version, a synthesizer that can be said as a low-priced version.

It corresponds to a wide range of sound making even though it is simple but its sound thickness is truly ARP. You can also create a tone similar to the Odyssey.
This is a rare initial model. Cv / gate in / out terminal mounted. It has been maintained by the vendor.

Because the color tone on the keyboard is cheap!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for sale is this ARP Axxe.

I bought this secondhand so I’m unsure of what happening on the inside. Modifications have been done as far as I can tell by the back panel.

It powers up and sound comes out. Most functions work as they should but some sliders are a bit scratchy and the effect can jump about.

Things I know aren’t working are:

-The keyboard isn’t gating properly. When key is released a note is still in playing.

-CV jack on the back not working.

-Sample and hold switch not working

-Portamento” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Daher müssen alle Geräte gehen, mit denen ich zu selten oder schon länger nicht mehr arbeite.

Zum Verkauf steht ein ARP Axxe MK I.

Ich habe den Synthie vor fast 30 Jahren gebraucht gekauft; leider steht er seit Jahren hauptsächlich rum und wird so gut wie nicht mehr benutzt. Daher muss er nun Platz für was neueres machen.

Optischer Zustand:
Ziemlich gut für das Alter. Die Holzseiten haben minimale Macken.

Technischer Zustand:
Alles OK. Die Fader haken und kratzen teilweise ein wenig und sollten mal gereinigt werden.

Ebenfalls nicht unwichtig: Zumindest während meiner Zeit ausschließlich ein Nichtrauchergerät.”

“Early Model AXXE, I have had this for awhile and a bit back removed all circuit boards and cleaned and lubed up the faders. Otherwise original parts in there and shiny clean. This is ready to rock for you. Faders work great, smooth!! Really nice true vintage synth which is sitting around and not getting played enough so I gotta sell it.

“This Axxe was recently serviced by a trusted tech in Austin,TX. I have not used it in a couple of months because I bought a really clean old odyssey. I have an Omni and an explorer as well in my collection. Arp made some amazing synthesizers! This synth would be great for someone who wants an odyssey but doesn’t trust the reissues (rightfully so!) and can’t yet afford the real deal. I am nearly certain that the Axxe is pretty much an Odyssey with a single oscillator” Click here to visit listing on eBay

usedarpaxxe “Hi! You’re looking at an original vintage Arp Axxe, serial number 2310-329. I believe this was equipped with the so-called “Moog infridgement” filter on it, but you can research it yourself for a clearer answer. This synth is just over forty years old, and has signs of wear that are typical of a piece from this age, but nothing too unsightly. The panel graphics are legible, and while there are a few minor scratches here and there, it’s generally devoid of huge gashes, dents, or anything else of that nature.

Now the fun part… This unit is in need of a tune up! The key bushings need to be replaced, the sliders lubricated, some canned air in certain places, etc. The portamento slider in particular seems to be stuck on at the moment, and there is a slight low hiss from the output i/o. Last time I checked, all of the keys sounded/responded, though are clacky because of the old key bushings that need to be replaced. A general maintainence overhaul is needed in order to restore this piece to its former glory.

The really good part, this synth sounds really quite special and truly unique. I will miss owning an Arp because of their very raw electronic sounds that stand alone in the synth world. The bass/low end on the synth are of Odyssey quality (same VCOs actually), and this synth can create very beautiful lead sounds with some guidence from its user as well as some warm oscillators. I also believe that the filter is very strong, musical, and full of unique character.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

arpaxxe “here im selling the more rare arp axxe black and gold which i think is with the moog filter very musical sounding overtones
it doesnt sound like any other arp ive heard has a much warmer sound somewhere between arp and moog
its in very good condition for its age with only one small scratch see pics otherwise very nice including the wood
it has been upgraded by arp with the pcc rubber controller which work surpisingly well without any effort
you can go pitch or lfo by softly pressing it

two of the tiny rubber tips are missing i will still include these by the moment item gets shipped getting replacements now

the very early black and gold arps are notoriously bad technical condition but not this one
this one has been serviced the keyboard rebushed no klanky keys here
also all faders been proper cleaned out they dont get stuck or make a noise like other arp faders
been tuned and calibrated plays very nice” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP, Axxe @ 12 April 2017, Comments Off on ARP Axxe

axxe “You are bidding on a vintage Arp AXXE analog synthesizer. Made famous by musicians like, Pete Townsend, Herbie Hancock, etc.; this is one of the original, early production, Arp Axxe analog synthesizers (#72). These are rare and extremely hard to come by; a true collector’s piece.

Three versions of the Axxe were manufactured during the 1970’s, with the final two versions containing orange silkscreening and a slightly modified casing. The difference in these later versions was primarily the mounting of the keyboard.

The earliest units of the original version lacked Arp’s innovative “Proportional Pitch Control” pad, but they featured a copyright infringing version of a Moog filter that was later discontinued.

This example (#72) is an earlier version that has been recently serviced with no alterations by a professional music repair provider and is in excellent working condition with all functioning parts, less two slider caps [location of VCA GAIN, S/H sliders (see photos; cosmetic, does not affect operation)]. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
