Paia 5700P The Drum

“This listing is for one extremely rare Paia “The Drum” 5700P Analog Percussion Synthesizer. It is essentially a cab filled with 4 identical modules that can generate a sound that is suited to percussive analog tones. It can be triggered via any sound source, including other drums, eurorack, a drum machine, etc. (voltage trigger OR audio into the 1/4″ jack). Each voice also has CV in that tracks across a few octaves so they can also be used as a stand-alone synth voice for basslines, melodies, etc. if so desired.
The sound can be described as very raw and weighty, similar to other early analog percussion units like the Simmons SDSV and 808. This unit works very well for it’s age, though some pots/switches could use some cleaning. Because of the age of this piece, it is sold as-is.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

PAiA Modular Synthesizer

” Travel back in time with this vintage synthesizer. I don’t know much about it. The keyboard unit is 37 keys. It is a kit unit. I cannot even figure out where the power switch is, let alone the amplifier output jack. I got it from an electronics engineer who never once used it, who got it from another electronics engineer who apparently assembled it in the 1970s.

Paia Electronics made kit synthesizers in the 1970s. I believe this is a completely homemade copy of a 1970s Paia synthesizer. The builder bought their own components and built and soldered their own circuit boards. I think it might be a Paia 2720 copy.

Unlike the Paia components in the various spec sheets and catalogs included, none of these components have the Paia stamp or Pais graphics, as shown in the literature. Among the literature included are: a 1974 Paia catalog; a 1975 Paia booklet without record; a 1975 Paia schematics symbology booklet; 17 old Paia component booklets with specs (a couple are doubles); a 1972 “Using the Paia 2720 Synthesizer” booklet; and some other spec sheets, including some on clear mylar.

It is truly untested. I plugged it in. I found one button that made a light turn on, but, other than that, I have no idea about it. It was in a clean and dry house for the last decade or so.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

PAiA Gnome

“Selling an original Paia Gnome analog synthesizer/sfx generator. This was built up by another person and when I received it, it made a variety of odd sounds. But always seemed like it needed some work. Since then the battery connections have become detached and I can make no claims about it’s functionality. But a good project for someone handy with a soldering iron and can read a schematic. The manual, parts lists and schematics are easily found online for this vintage synth. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

PAiA Stringz n Thingz

” Very rare PAiA Stringz N Thingz synthesizer. Decent cosmetic condition considering its age. Comes in its own case.

Functionally, it partially works – seems to make the cello and violin sounds, not sure if the piano sound is working properly, the modulator seems to work, the sustain and mix knobs don’t seem to do anything. ”

PAiA 2720 Modular Synthesizer

“Rare PAiA 2720 modular synthesizer. I bought this one from Robert Rich a long time ago (https://robertrich.com/).

I am selling it untested. It is my understanding that it was working before I bought it, but it was built from a kit, so I am not making any guarantees about condition. it is missing some screws, has some rusty screws and spots, and the case around the pitch knob is loose.

See Photos. Sold as-is!

Comes with extra module and patch cables.”

PAiA Gnome Project Machine

“We tried testing this unit, but couldn’t get any sound out of it. Our hope is for someone with some electronics expertise to repair this synthesizer to its former glory.

It has been sitting in storage for quite some time, so it could definitely use a good cleaning.

Every button, knob, switch, etc. appears to physically function well, but since we can’t test it, this auction is parts and\or repair only (“AS-IS”). ”
