ARP Odyssey

“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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“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 visit listing 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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“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 visit listing on eBay

ARP Odyssey Mk III

“Awesome synth. Sadly this one hasn’t seen much love. It could probably do with a service, so please bare that in mind. For a start you might need some of those slider caps, although I think you can get them on eBay (maybe the Korg ones will fit, I have no idea). I don’t have the screws that enable you to lift the front panel to look inside. The keys on this thing hang over the edge, crazy design, but they have never been broken thankfully. Therefore it’s extremely fragile and collection only

The synth works and it sounds great. The oscillators are very stable and stays in tune perfectly. The key contacts are fine too. Electrically it is 100% fully working. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For sale is a vintage Arp Odyssey 2823

Lots of character with service and calibration recently completed.

Slider are fitted with rubber caps that are slightly loose but feel great and could be adhered if buyer wants to commit to keeping them. Originals deteriorated and needed to be replaced. *I will include both sizes of replacement caps, one fits snug while other is loose*

Compared with korg clone and this unit has much more sizzle, infinite sweet spots and cv/gate compatible for sequencing analog goodness.

Key bushings replaced and it plays excellent

Including Midi CV Converter as part of sale. CV.OCD+Gate Boost” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Here is an ORIGINAL ARP Odyssey. I have had this for years and used only a couple times.

Here is what I know about it:

It powers on and its controls are functional. The keys will play various notes and it does produce a wide variety of synth sounds! All sliders move – there are four broken sliders that still move. You can see these in the pictures. Some sliders have static when moving. All switches seem to be working. I am not sure about testing all of all the functionality in its entirety, but the LFO, VCF, AR and ADSR do alter the sound when I used them.

Let me know if you have specific questions functionality. Be aware that this is a 40+ year old synth — a good going-over by your technician might be a good idea. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Superb condition as seen — some small scratches and wear on face, but still looking great for a 45+ year old instrument!

A true vintage piece, much better sound than any modern reissue as well as later vintage Odysseys (2810, 2823 etc.).

This one has been very well calibrated, no problems with sliders or keyboard unlike most you will find which need extensive work. Ready to play right now. An absolute joy to play!

Has CV/Gate board installed, which was not standard with these versions. So you get the best of both worlds, the controllability of later Odysseys and the superior sound of the Mk.I.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I’m selling my trusty ARP Odyssey synthesizer which has served me well over these past seven years.

I had some work done to it by an expert in Maine in 2012. However, they told me that it would need more work done and right now, I can’t afford those further repairs.

Usually this will get in tune after a good 45 minutes of warming up. That being said, several times, it’s hard to get a sound out of it and sometimes, the same notes come out of it despite various keys. The keyboard itself could do with a full overhaul.

I’ve included the receipt for the work that was done in 2012 for your reference.

The unit itself is in good condition with no dings or dents. It also comes with the foot pedal switch. I’m also including copies of the owner’s manual and service manual. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Odyssey

“Vintage ARP Odyssey Mk II. Model #2813. This synth is fully functional with a couple of caveats. First, a few of the sliders are a bit sticky. Not terrible, but you feel a little extra resistance when you push them. Second, there are three or four keys where the duophony can get squirrely. Everything plays fine if you’re going mono, but a couple of j-wires are slightly out of whack, causing a little weirdness when you play two notes at once. This synth sounds amazing, plays very well aside from where noted, and looks really good too. There is a blemish on one key, and a small amount of wear and tear, but it’s a really fine example of a black and gold Odyssey. Fresh key bushings as well.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Vintage ARP Odyssey Original – Rev 1, Whiteface.

Although this is an excellent example of a classic synth, it is not 100% operational…

VCO1 has instability in tuning and does not output a clean sound.
VCO2 however is absolutely fine.
Some sliders are noisy and need replaced.

It has been partially serviced by Jim McKenna of Singing Cat Services – look him up!
I’m sure he would be happy to give further details if you need more info.

He couldn’t find a fix to the VCO problem but did service some other areas of the synth.
(Please see below for description in quotations of what he has done and suggestions for future servicing)

This is NOT a Korg version
Cosmetically in perfect condition.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
