ARP String Ensemble

Its incredible to think of the thousands of songs that these things were used on-everything from Parliament Funkadelic to Gary Numan and still to this day-you wont find a Dr.Dre album without a Arp Solina on it.
This one still plays good for as old as she is(never gigged-just moved from studio session to session).Some of the wood veneer is cracking off but no real damage.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Solina

“Vintage Arp String Ensemble (Solina) – The classic orchestra string sound of the 70s and early 80s. Used on hundreds of recordings by musicians around the world from rock, pop, country, disco, to jazz. This ARP was stored in a dry environment in plastic. Every key sounds fine with no hesitation or crackle. All voicing push buttons work freely with appropriate sound. On/off switch no problem. Power on light does not light. Pitch control works fine.

Slider controls left to right: Bass volume slider works as it should. ‘Crescendo’ slider works as it should. ‘Sustain length’ slider slides, but has no effect – this means when key is released sound stops with no sustain. Volume control slider works fine but knob has broken off – there is enough stub left to control the volume with your finger. *Note* The knob is included and could be glued on. I used a volume pedal (output to pedal to mixer) so I didn’t bother to glue the knob (included) back on.

Cosmetically this is a much loved road warrior and has a wonderful history. Original wood. The left end panel stays on but is loose – just needs some wood glue. Other than that, structurally it is very solid. Bottom corners are somewhat rounded and right side panel has a small chunk off the front. Bb3 has a hole and B3 is cracked, solidly glued (never a problem) and both keys work fine. There are no feet/glides on the bottom. One owner. Original owners manual is included.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Details (Cosmetic Appearance): All factory stickers are incredibly close to mint condition. The other (White/Black) stickers are not original: these were added for a retro type look; however, can be removed without damaging the paint. Note 1: The right wooden end panel is distressed with a hairline crack; however, not broken. (see pictures)Note 2: The right side wooden end panel has a chip on the front: [If you want to repair that area, use wood filler to shape]. (see pictures)Note 3: This unit comes with original extra repair components, packaged in a manila envelope (see pictures)” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Used Solina ARP PE-IV Series 18 String Ensemble Electronic Music Synthesizer Synth

Incredible fat-sounding vintage string ensemble. Used on many classic recordings. The electronics are fully working and it sounds great. Sold AS IS, but I’ve never had any problems with it.

It has the gate and trigger outputs, and “MOD DEFEAT” button on the right-hand side, so I’m pretty sure it’s the Mk2.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

ARP Solina

arpsolina “In the early 1990s we went to an auction of a music store that closed. We bought this Eminent Solina String Ensemble, which seems to be new, although perhaps used as a demo. The only reason I say this is that the foot pedal is a bit dusty and the front part of the music stand (which keeps the music from sliding off) had become loose on the left side. We glued it back in place, but where it had rested on the top for all these years, it left a residue, which I am afraid to try to clean off. Please see the pictures.

The rest of the keyboard is in wonderful shape, the warranty has never been filled out, the instructions are included, and the glass music stand has never been removed from the carrying case.

It is set for USA voltage, 115V. Model STRING-ENS. The series is blank. No. 227044. Manufactured by Eminent Electronics, Bodegraven, Holland.

We have never removed it from the case until now. We have tested it, and it works perfectly as far as we can tell. All keys and buttons work. The carrying case is in excellent, although not absolutely perfect, condition.”
