“In need of serious repiar, sliders are stuck no audio output, some keys are yellowed and not leveled it seems to be complete though great project for a tinkerer or as a parts unit. Unit is okay cosmetically, the wood paneling is a little lose and there are some nicks and dings that happened over the years from normal playing. Still powers on.” Link

“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. The only known issue is the dead lamp on the light switch. Everything else is working fine as of now.” Link

“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” Link

“verkaufe hier einen Synthesizer, den ich von meinem Onkel geerbt habe. Er hat diesen persönlich in den 70er gekauft. Jedoch hat er ihn so gut wie nie benutzt.
Der Zustand des Gerätes ist aus meiner Sicht sehr gut. Siehe Fotos. Er wurde immer in dem originalen Holzcase gelagert (Nichtraucherhaushalt). Mit dabei sind einige sehr seltene Unterlagen. Die Anleitung und die zehn “Auflagen”. Leider funktioniert das Gerät nicht mehr. Deshalb verkaufe ich es als Sammlerstück oder als Ersatzteillager.” Link

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.” Link

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” Link

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)]. ” Link

Hi you’re bidding on a vtg Analog Synth.

Note:

There are some issues on this synth that I’ll like to mention:

• It turns on, makes sounds after warm up, works perfectly fine but there’s some potentiometers that don’t function properly. (Sliders)

• I have cleaned all the potentiometers and put new bushings in all the keys

• this was a project, but i don’t have the time to keep maintaining this synth

• I’m selling it as is

•This synth is in good cosmetic shape (look pictures)

Comes with:

1) owner manual

2) 2 packs of new knobs

3) power cord”

ARP, Axxe @ 22 February 2017, Comments Off on ARP Axxe Project Machine

axxe ” I have had this synth since 1990 and it has always worked – lovely for bases. For most of the time I triggered it via the CV/Gate to midi interface.But it does need a full service to get it back to tip top condition as although it powers up and makes noises of sorts, the keyboard doesn’t work and some of the sliders have snapped off but can still be moved. It is also out of tune. But like any vintage synth a little work and service should bring it back to full glory. I no longer have the room for it and due to moving to mainly modules in my set up now it is time to say goodbye. There are plenty of reviews about the ARP Axxe on the internet. It is very heavy and so I would prefer local collection only. Date of manufacture is about 1978. I no longer have the manual but again these are on the net. Smoke free home and only two owners – never gigged.” Link
