ARP Odyssey

“ARP Odyssey – mk1…white face.

The DOGS…

An original model 2800.
Recently serviced including switch cleaning and re-graphite’ing of sliders.
What a sound….
There is some paint ‘bubble’ here and there as shown but operationally is in very good order.

Mono – 2 oscillator…..the sound of the early 70’s…used by everyone from Abba to Herbi H.

This unit comes with 110 volt transformer (it’s a US model) and the original ARP supplied heavy duty ‘Anvil’ flightcase.”

“I have owned this ARP Quartet from new and it has been well looked after and the condition of the wooden and metal casing and paintwork is very good for the age. It has always been stored in its original box but the box is looking very worn now. There is a small area of flaked off paint on the rear of the keyboard that is visible in one of the photos. The sound is very good but there are two issues that i can see that you might want to get sorted if you purchased the keyboard. The volume slider dosen’t adjust the volume any longer so i adjust the volume via my amp so i have never bothered to get it fixed. All sounds and effects work except for the celest on the organ section. The slider has come loose and the celest sound is permanently off. This might need a new switch fitting.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for sale is our original ARP Odyssey MKIII. NOT the inferior weak sounding Korg. This is the real deal.

We’ve owned it it and used it for the past 10 years here in our studio. Never gigged in our possession. Look at the pics.. Pretty sure it’s never been gigged. It looks fantastic.

We had it gone over by a veteran analog synth tech last year. Basic stuff like a full calibration, fader cleaning, power supply recap. J wires cleaned.

Works and looks great. But sold as is due to how temperamental these old synths can be. Keep in mind that you may need to calibrate it on arrival to you… as is with any synth of this era. Plays, sounds and feels great as it is here.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“ARP Odyssey MkIII (vintage) in OK condition: some scuffs at the edges (see pics) but the face plate is very nice. Recently serviced:

– All faders opened and cleaned, re-lubricated. Feels and work very well.

– New keyboard bushings.

– New parts in the PSU.

– Sub-Osc mod, the “VCA Gain” fader now controls the volume of a sub-oscillator (copied from a SH101).

– AR fast/slow mod to make the AR-envelope faster.

– Free run mod: choose if the LFO shall re-trigger on every new note or if it should run free.

– Timothy Smith Filter mod, which makes the filter open up more

All mods are non destructive and easily reversible. The switches on the back are fitted in the jack holes with the jacks still present inside. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Arp Odyssey Mk1 2800 Synthesizer ( Full Overhaul And Calibration ). Condition is “Seller refurbished”.

Very Rare and Unique Original 1970’s Arp Odyssey Model 2800.

1970’s Original Arp Odyssey 2800 Mk1

Refurbished /Serviced /Calibrated

Pretty much a full Overhaul!

I literally just picked this beast up from my tech today 3/8/2021

As most of you know, the 2800 Mk1 is essentially a white face on the outside.

Somewhere in-between the Mk1 design and the Odyssey II / Mk2/ Rev 2 launch,.. there were a few transitional designs that ARP released.

They had the Mk1 guts along with the black and gold body. Odd, but a Pretty Obvious piece of synth history here.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Odyssey

“This vintage ARP Odyssey has just been fully serviced by Synthchaser, the west coast’s leading ARP specialist – recapped, new ICs, new key bushings, all new LED sliders, all new slide switches, fully functional, tuned and calibrated, and sounding awesome! The Odyssey was ARP’s answer to the Minimoog, a feature packed scaled down version of the legendary ARP 2600. This late model ARP Odyssey is equipped with the 4075 filter, a tasty 4 pole LPF found in all late model ARP synths.

The synth is in great condition, and was acquired from the original owner who bought it in 1980 and put it away in 1981. It comes with a wooden road case, and the foam is still good! There are touches of rust along the edges of the synthesizer (see photos), but they are not distracting from the overall awesomeness of this synth. This synth comes with Orange illuminated LED sliders to complement the Orange & Black color scheme of this late model ARP. I am willing to disable the illumination for the buyer before shipping, upon request. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“ARP Odyssey Vintage Synthesizer from 1979

This is the MKIII model.

Pristine cosmetic & working condition, recently professionally serviced in London. Can send video for proof of functionality upon request. Two of the keys are slightly raised as shown in pictures, but technician confirmed that does not affect their functionality at all.

Beautiful and unique sounding synth, hard to find in this condition. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“This one is in beautiful cosmetic condition (it looks almost new) and working 100%. It has just been serviced and with a lot of restoration. As you can see, this is an original, model 2813 with PPC and NOT a Chinese made, Japanese replica of an American classic. It is ready to be played and needs nothing! I doubt there is another here on Ebay that is as nice cosmetically and that has had the same amount of restoration. Please mail with any questions. Payment must clear before I will ship. Local pickup is welcome.”

“This is an original Arp Odyssey Mk 1 (Model 2800) analog synthesizer. Produced from 1972-1975. Serial number is 281896. Original Anvil case is included.

Although all the original parts are probably here, I am selling this as-is, for parts only, with no returns accepted. I cannot determine if it has been serviced or modified in the past.

This synth is not in good working condition. I have been unable to determine what it needs.

All the controls are intact. I can get very interesting sounds from this synth, and I’ve used it in recordings, but it has the following problems. These are all I’m aware of and able to describe:

1) Many of the sliders are sticky and are making poor contact, rendering many of the controls ineffective or inoperable.
2) The keyboard seems to be wired in reverse; the notes increase in pitch from right to left, instead of left to right.
3) The interval between keys is more like a minor third than a half step. This is evidently a voltage issue.

Included is the original expression pedal, but I have been unable to determine how to use it.

What you can expect is for the synth to produce a variety of sounds as is, with effort and patience required on your part. Someone who is good at electronics could put this synth back in order. I don’t have time, money, or energy to pursue that, or to fix it myself.

What is most impressive about this synth is its dynamic range. It is quiet, and can produce the highest highs and the lowest lows in human hearing range.

The keyboard is in excellent condition. No sticky or uneven keys.

It has no control voltage inputs, no sequencer, and no MIDI interface. It has only two audio outputs: High level and low level (see photo).” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Also all the TANTULUM caps have been remove.
All CTS PCB Trimmer pots replaced with new , old ones come with sale.
The power supply also re capped. Very stable out at +15 and -15 Volts.
I dont have the time or money to get him to repair this beauty.Someone just messaged me and said to check the op amps,well someone can its for sale to a good home.
The ARP is very clean and in beautiful condition also. KEYBED buss very clean.
All new slide potentiometer’s from GMUSYNTH, 10 have the LED which was going to be a later project as i only wanted the important sliders to light up in the dark. LOL
The led power supply a 5 volt meanwell is mounted inside near the ARP’s P/S and comes with the 2 led dimmer pcb’s so if you install you can dim or brighten the green,red and orange 10 led sliders.
This will be a great synth to have if you are experienced in ARP Synths thats a plus.”

“ARP Odyssey Synthesizer, Model 2800. It’s been in my family since the 70s, but not played on for 20+ years. This unit does not work. When plugged in & switched on, the orange light illuminates but no sound comes out. Some of the sliders are stiff/stuck, nothing appears missing or actually broken off. Keys bounce back up when pressed. Maybe it’s an easy fix, maybe not. Please study the photos for your interpretation of its cosmetic condition. I make no claims on that. Selling it as is, NOT WORKING/FOR REPAIR & REBUILD/SPARE PARTS. No refunds/returns.” Click here to search for synths on eBay
