“This is my early Wasp synth – it is in very good cosmetic condition although a small piece of the plastic has come away from the front of the synth and one control knob cap has been lost. It all works and the knobs all function however it could do with a service as oscillator two does not follow the keyboard pitch and plays as a drone. Oscillator one is fine however. Even so the synth is capable of making some great lead and bass sounds. UK only. It’s delicate so pickup preferred.” Link

“Up for sale is a (1) vintage EDP Wasp synthesizer. It’s in good working condition and sounds amazing! An unknown type of MIDI kit is installed. The MIDI in (green sticker) and thru (red sticker) are working fine, but the jack inputs at the backside of the synth don’t work. We have no idea for what reason they are mounted there. On the MIDI board inside we found the following text: MIDI Wah 1.0

The keyboard is working fine, the battery compartment is clean, the battery compartment lid is still there, the plastic case has no cracks or missing parts, all the screws are there, the speaker is working, and it powers up with batteries (not included) and 9v psu adaptor (included, European plug installed on the adaptor).

Cosmetically it’s in nice condition as described above, but it’s not mint. The keyboard has signs of use and there are some small scratches on it (see photo’s). The volume knob is missing an inlay, but a new-made inlay is on the way to us and will be included in the sale. Overall it’s a beauty instrument which deserves a good new home. ” Link

EDP, Wasp @ 04 April 2017, Comments Off on EDP Wasp Project Machine

wassp “A vintage EDP Wasp synth in need of a service/repair.

We have fitted batteries to this and had a poke around with a multimeter and there is power appearing across the circuit board, but there is no output from the speaker, line, or headphone outputs.

Physically, it is quite good. We are aware that the cheap plastic casing of these are prone to chips and damage, but the case on this is good with no chips to corners (there are some scratches). The very fragile internal battery tray DOES have a crack, but this is not visible when the item is assembled as it is internal (the battery tray is made of even thinner plastic than the rest of the item!). It is probably easier to attend to electronic components than to try to source a good case and keyboard for one of these.

Careful examination suggests that some components have been replaced (for example one of the pot shafts is of a different color, and some of the knobs appear to be replacements).

The keyboard appears good without some of the excessive wear that you see on some of these machines on eBay. When we removed the knobs in order to have a look inside, we didn’t consider that they had been fitted in any particular order but when we we put it back together, the yellow markers on each knob now point in the wrong direction. Therefore the buyer will need to reposition the yellow tops on the knobs in order to get them to point in the correct direction.” Link

ELECTRONIC DREAM PLANT

VINTAGE SYNTH

NB: This video is not of the actual item listed, but used for demonstration purposes of its capability. Plenty more on youtube.

Legendary EDP Wasp by Chris Huggett, quirky looking toylike synth but a serious piece of kit, capable of rip roaring synth lines, fat bass…just straight up dirty with so much character. Great for all types of Electronic music.

This was recently serviced by SRS in Jan 2017 and is studio ready.

The casing is damaged in two corners typical of this synth with the plastic casing, originally designed that way to keep costs down. In any case this does not affect its functionality. Kept in a professional smoke free studio and tested prior to listing.

Comes with a non-original quality power adapter.” Link

edpwasp “Unfortunately the WASP got insured after further hard life and after storage it for bout 3 years.

Just the upper keyboard octave seems to produce some sounds some how right now.

Optical there’s a crack in the case at the lower left side, just taped at the moment.

Lower right side case is missing small part.

internal speaker works.

4 poti covers are replace by red ones.” Link

edp-wasp “Vintage EDP wasp synthesizer. Fully functional with MIDI and power supply and original manual.

This synth was professionally restored by Dave Brown at Modular Synthesis and is featured on his website. Pictured of the inside are viewable there. Although the synth wasn’t actually broken it exhibited odd behavior due to aging components. Dave solved all the issues and it now works very well and sounds fantastic. Dave also installed an Elby MIDI interface which has the latest firmware. ” Link

Overall condition is excellent, with minimal signs of wear and tear. Unlike most Wasps this one doesn’t have the cracked corners on the casing, however there is a slight scratch on the keybed which can be seen but not obvious, this does not affect its use. (please see pictures).

Also comes with non original power adapter.” Link

edp-wasp “Absolut selten zu findender Vintage Synthesizer aus dem Hause Electronic Dream Planet. Nicht nur wegen seines einzigartigen Designs sorgte der WASP schon zum Erscheinungsjahr 1978 für Aufsehen. Mit seinem speziellen Klang, einer 2 Oktaven umfassende Folientastatur, einem integrierte Lautsprecher und der Möglichkeit mit Batterie betrieben zu werden, unterschied sich der Synthesizer optisch und klanglich von seiner Konkurrenz. Besonderes lebendig werden seine Sounds durch den 6 Wellenformen umfassenden LFO und seinen Multimode-Filter, der sowohl als Low Pass, als Band Pass oder als High Pass genutzt werden kann und bei höheren Resonanzen seinen eigenen, herrlich unsauberen Charakter entfaltet.
Das alles brachten seine Sounds auf Alben von größen wie Thomas Dolby, Duran Duran und Pink Floyd (Welcome to the Machine).” Link

EDP, Wasp @ 13 September 2016, Comments Off on Lot of 2 EDP Wasp Synthesizers

edp-wasp

Here is an Incredible opportunity to purchase two wasp synthesizers. These have both been extensively used in the 1970’s and 80’s by a local leeds band “Lynx”. They are no longer in working order but can be restored to their former glory. The keyboards are particularly well worn and indeed one of them has a broken key.

The Second picture and subsequent 4 pictures are of the better of the two synths. The casing is in good order and it still carries its original serial no sticker. The jack points are good and show little signs of rust and all button covers are intact.

The seventh and following pictures are of the poorer of the two synths. It has no battery station protective back. A couple of the dial covers are missing and the jack points are rusty. Also there is a pice of the casing missing as in the illustration.

Neither synths work although they both produce a tantalising crackle.” Link

edp-gnat-special “Up for auction, a very rare Electronic Dream Plant (EDP) Gnat Special Synthesizer. This is synth is in unique and is capable of wonder vintage analog synth sounds. The synth is working, the oscillators can be very brilliant, raw, and deep with bass ranges. Combined with the juicy analog filter it’s synth heaven. The Enhance mode oscillator sounds particularly amazing, its the best sounding bass oscillator you’ll have at your disposal. Used in a professional sound design studio, smoke free.

Synth collectors take note, this item has an interesting history/provenance. I purchased it directly from one of the EDP founders Adrian Wagner (also a descendant relative of the composer Richard Wagner). He signed the bottom. This unit is a very early Gnat Special, there isn’t a serial number. ” Link

edp wsp “Welp, doesnt get much more rare than this little guy. Cute as button too! well for synth! Its black and yellow and its has touch sensitive keys- what more do you want! Some seriously Dark side of the moon sounding stuff with little guy! Its instant Moog, Arp, Roland all rolled into one. Its really that awesome. Check out some videos on you tube for ref. Some of the hard plastic is broken off long ago. Its just plastic after all these weren’t really thought of as made to last decades or anything. Legend has it Pink Floyd, The Who used to give these away as XMAS gifts. Can imagine finding this under your tree? Anyways sans some of the plastic being broken its in good shape. Its not mint probably a 7 as far as condition goes. Only works with power supply as the moment. ” Link

edp wasp“Damage to the plastic casing is common with these, this one has been pretty lucky so far, the only blemishes being a small split on the rear-left corner (picture 4), and a couple of stains (picture 6) and a worn spot (picture 7) on the keyboard. Also the foil sticker over the jack panel is a bit bumpy, and a couple of screws are missing, but they shouldn’t be hard to replace.” Link

wasp “Sie bieten auf

einen alten Synthesizer der Marke WASP, hergestellt 1978 von der Fa. EDP (Electronic Dream Plant) in Großbritannien. Es war der erste, kostengünstige Synthesizer. Die Experten werden ihn kennen. Allen anderen empfehle ich eine Recherche bei Wikipedia.

Dieses Exemplar wurde nur kurzfristig genutzt, da die Band, die ihn angeschafft hatte, sich kurz danach auflöste. Die letzten 35 Jahre hat dieses Gerät gut verpackt auf einem trockenen Dachboden verbracht und wurde erst vor kurzem “wiederentdeckt”.

Er ist optisch in einem guten Zustand. Die Funktion kann nicht geprüft werden.” Link

wasp “EDP Wasp with very rare midi (via specialized Kenton). Works perfectly and looks fantastic with very minor wear on one touch key, which is way better than most! This thing is like a TB 303 on steroids PLUS some! I don’t have the power adapter, but it is common and easy to find. Also runs off batteries (no battery leak, also very good!) Please look at all the photos because I know how “look” is a subjective thing. Will take it to UPS store to be professionally packed, which I will charge as part of shipping (it’s just safer that way). Vintage analog synth, so sold “as-is,” but it is leaving 100% in working condition. ” Link

This is for my wasp mono synth. Amazing fun synth and can be seriously dark too. This one is fully working and has no issues, although the case shows general marks and cracks – please check out the hi-res photos. This is only a minor problem, but I think it best to mention it. The keyboard play brilliantly. 240 v adaptor included.
I’m gutted to sell this but I need the money. Collection preferred, but will ship worldwide.” Link

edp wasp“For Sale My E.D.P. Wasp. I have owned this little beauty for about 17 Years. I had it serviced about 4 years ago & the engineer sourced a Tascam P.s.u that complies exactly power wise to original spec. A couple of the knobs are non standard but otherwise she’s in great nick. The sound is wonderfully powerful with no hiss or noise you can find on Japanese analogs synths. I would much prefer the buyer to collect in person as these synths are delicate but if I have to post I will use a courier service so it may cost more than usual. Your chance to own a fantastic sounding unique bit of synth history..” Link

“This little piece of British synth history I am selling following the death of one of my studio’s owners, an elderly gentleman who collected synths and cherished them dearly. I’m not a synth guy but I shall aim to describe the unit as best I can 🙂

Cosmetic condition is good; there are no cracks or splits in the casing. One knob is missing (on the pitch pot as shown) but this I reckon could be picked up cheaply for someone in the know, and it doesn’t affect the operation.

Powering up the unit, all the controls function (although my knowledge is limited of analogue synths, they all control the sound as I’d imagine. The control pot fourth from bottom right feels a little wonky so it might want to be replaced. The two link sockets on the top right are untested as I don’t know exactly what they do.

The only real issue is that the very bottom key doesn’t work, which I gather is a common issue which can be repaired. Considering the crazy sounds this thing makes, I wouldn’t consider 1 out of 24 keys to be a massive deal, but again I’m not a synth guy!” Link

“I am offering a EDP Wasp synthesiser with new power supply (not shown in photograph). I have owned this for the last 34 years and it has been mostly stored away in a cupboard. I offered this for sale about 3 years ago, and found out that one of the oscillators was not working. Since then I have had it fully repaired by ‘Vintage Synths’. The Wasp is now in full working order, with no cracks in the casing, and is in very good condition.

The only minor blemish which you can see from the photographs, is the hand painted symbol at the top near the internal speaker.

Also included is the original Wasp owners manual, which is in good condition for its age. There is a small amount of writing in the notes section at the back of the manual.”

It has recently been professionally serviced by Ben Rossborough at Cyberwave EMS and is fully functional.” Link

Will be nice to midify and install in 19 rack after restoration.

Here’s everything I did and it worked for testing:

1) It powers up (need correct DC power).
2) Keyboard triggers and sound comes but no pitch change.
3) All knobs seem working (change sound) but may need adjustment or replacement.
