ARP Explorer I

“I don’t need to tell you keyboard wizards how rare this is or its musical pedigree! There are none to be had now and I am reluctantly parting with her due to a downsize house move. I have owned this synth from New and imported it around 1974. Unfortunately I don’t have the original box though! This keyboard is in very good condition with all original knobs and sliders and there are no scratches or damage. Please note I am aware of one minor fault where the sustain mode is on all the time but I am told this is not a major problem? I am not being greedy but I am not giving her away either! I just want it to go to an enthusiast who will continue to care for her. I would prefer buyer collect for obvious reasons but am prepared to courier it if needed (UK around £50 delivered I think).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Biete einen sehr alten (ca. 40 Jahre) Arp Explorer 1 Synthesizer. Der Arp lässt sich anschalten und funktioniert prinzipiell, allerdings gehen mehrere Schieberegler nur sehr schwergängig und manche Tasten triggern nicht, vermutlich müssten die Kontakte gesäubert werden. Ideal als Ersatzteillager oder Restaurationsobjekt.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

rp exploere “I’ve had this for several years and have decided it was time to part ways. It’s in fair condition considering its age. Everything functions fine, though some keys do stick occasionally (fixed after running through all the keys before playing) and there can be some static with the switches (also fixed by manually adjusting all the knobs and sliders first), probably just needs to be cleaned well. The external body is fine, minimal scratches but the labels have become faded. Has all original parts, including knobs and sliders.

It’s a very fun old school synth with some very customizable sounds. Great for a nice retro monophonic sound!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

explorer ” Up for sale is an ARP Explorer I synthesizer model 2900 from the early 70’s.
I’ve owned it for about six years and used it occasionally when gigging out. It was given a good going over by Sound Source in Rochester, NY when I first got it, and could probably stand another going over now. All of the switches and sliders work, but there’s a bit of scratchiness that’s telling me that the sliders need cleaning again.

The particulars:
-Serial #2900-0482
-Monophonic
-It has some scratches on the control panels, some black marks on the upper keys, two sliders are missing their caps, and the bottom particle board has a crack (doesn’t affect playing.)
-I will include a USB drive with files of: the owner’s manual, service manual, several factory patch settings, and blank template for your own patches.

All in all, it’s a really cool synth if your looking for that 70’s sound. I’m trying to slim down my collection and I just don’t use this one nearly enough.

I’ve tried to show all of the dings and scratches in the photos. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Explorer I

explorer” Selling a vintage ARP Explorer 1 synthesizer. Great 70s synth sounds! Features 4 mixable waveforms and noise, a fantastic sounds 24db/octave Moog style filter (ARP 4034 module), and an ADSR and LFO with modulation routing. Lots of range for a somewhat preset synthesizer.

The unit is great cosmetic condition as seen in the photos. Powers up and seems to be working fine. Comes with a 100-130V power supply input and 2-pin plug.
There is a demo video of the unit. Do get in touch if you are interested and wish to view it.

Considering it’s age, a bit of clean up and tuning would bring the unit up to its most optimum state.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
