Please refer to his extensive restoration work at: otb.redshift-consulting.com

It’s in excellent cosmetic condition and 100% functional.

Randel’s restoration included:

– installation of the switching power supply by Luca Sasdelli

– installation of the CPU Plus (CC+) control board (midi upgrade)

– recapping of the voice cards and calibration

chroma expander “Unit works well, but does have some issues. Was photographed with quite a few screws missing these will be replaced before shipping. It was operated with the lid open for cooling. This does not always boot up on the first try. If you turn it on, let it warm for a few minutes and then back off and on it will reliably boot up and run reliably. I’m told this kind of crap is normal with these.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

crhoma ” That is right. You can believe your eyes. This is a fully functional Rhodes Chroma Expander analogue synthesizer. I have never seen one for sale on eBay or anywhere else over the last few years. I would dare say that this may be one of the few chances you will ever have to own one.

This Rhodes Chroma Expander, serial #0110, has been completely painstakingly restored internally over the last 3 1/2 years at Three Wave Music. a few years prior, additional restoration work was done by David Hillel Wilson at the Synth Museum in New Hampshire. On the Rhodes Chroma website, he listed his plans for a voice card tester he designed for the Rhodes Chroma. He designed it when he was working on this Xpander to help him get all the voice cards back to spec. You will want to refinish the wood to bring it back to its former glory as the outside is not where you will want it to be. There are also a couple of small spots where the front panel membrane is slightly lifted but it does not interfere in any way with performance of the unit. Three Wave Music secured it and made sure it was stable.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
