“You are looking at a vintage ARP Odyssey REVII Synthesizer, Serial number 2813, manufactured in the late 1970’s. If you are looking at this listing you know what it is, this is a real ARP Odyssey, NOT the modern Korg remake. I am the second owner of this synth, and prior to me it was owned by John Koumoutseas who in fact was a previous ARP engineer/employee in the 1970’s.
This specific unit is in excellent shape and has very recently been professionally serviced, which includes new key bushings, calibration/tuning, slider lubrication & cleaning (this is VERY important with these units), PSU updating, capacitor replacement, as well as many other tweaks.
This specific unit plays beautifully and sounds absolutely magical. Cosmetically there are a few minor blemishes that I will describe as best as I can so there are no surprises:
(1) There are some very small white scuffs on the edge meeting the front and rear chassis.
(2) There are two missing screws on the left & right side: this was done on purpose; the threads had worn out so the screw-holes were repositioned to the outer chassis
(3) The jacks on the rear have some minor corrosion but the electrical contact has been tested and gives good continuity.
I have tested this unit over and over and it is rock solid. However given the age of the unit and overall sensitivity of older electronics I am unable to guarantee that at some point in time it may require re-servicing.
I will also include the RCA Cable + Adapter required to use the “High” output in the rear of the unit. It is HIGHLY recommended that you use this output, it gives a much stronger & cleaner signal
This is a very special machine and I hope it goes to a good home. It will be packed very carefully and shipped with insurance. Ok, thats all for now! Thanks for looking and have a nice day.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
