Maplin 4600

“Maplin 4600

vintage Analogue Synthesizer:

With original construction guide (with full parts list), Power cable and all important (and very rare) Patch Pins.

I bought this with the intention of finding a boffin to resurrect it to its full potential – But time and space constraints have brought the inevitable conclusion!

Having used a fully working 4600 back in the day, I remember being blown away by the awesome sonic power.

Cosmetically acceptable for a synth around 40 years old. This synth has been very well constructed by a competent engineer.

it is complete (as far as I can tell).

It powers up, and makes sound.

As far as I can tell, the keyboard triggers one oscillator.

This rare vintage synth will need a complete overhaul.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Maplin 5600s

“Up for auction is a Maplin 5600s Monophonic Vintage Synthesizer Synth Rare. This unit was completely put back together by Kurt Sampson in Prescott, Az and some of the parts are original but most of the parts are new.

I am going to break down the work that was done on this unit as best as I can. The keyboard (digitally controlled) is new, the spring reverb is new, & the power supply was specifically constructed for this machine. All four oscillators work, the two filters work, all five mixers work, the keyboard control works, both amplifiers work, the sample and hold work, left and right outputs work great, the spring reverb / phaser work, & the 30 x 30 patch matrix works great and it comes with 14 pegs to make different combinations of patches. There are no dirty potentiometers. More recently the pitch wheel was installed, gate clock in, cv in, ext cv1, ext cv was installed as well so you can sync it up with a drum machine.”
