Moog, Polymoog @ 23 November 2020, Comments Off on Moog Polymoog

” For a 45 year old synth, I would have to say it is in near museum condition on the exterior. There are very few scratches and dings, obviously well taken care of by previous owner(s). Does NOT show the regular signs of gigging (beat to crap). All keys are straight and flat and none are sticking. All knobs are intact and all sliders seem to work correctly with appropriate resistance to movement. Comes with the (optional) rare 285A Polypedal which is also in extremely nice condition. That being said, I have NOT plugged this unit in nor tested it, so I am in no way guaranteeing or warranting the correct operation beyond the exterior condition (which is very nice). It’s possible that you will plug this unit in and it will work fine, but it is also more than likely going to need some internal contact cleaning, tuning and even a possible overhaul. Unfortunately, I do not have the legs or power cord, so they are not included. I have not opened the unit’s cover.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“A rare and vintage PolyMoog Synthesiser 203 from around 1978.

Complete with four legs yet no rear stabilising struts.

It is extremely clean, there’s no dust or grime anywhere.

All keys work, there are no thumps, bumps or crackles.

All presets work as they should and all sliders and controls are fine. VCF, Contour, and Resonators all excellent.

It plays well and the velocity sensitive weighted keys are all OK.

Due to careful use, regular cleaning and routine servicing, it actually transports very well and I’ve never had any problems with moving it around.”

“For as old as it is– VERY CLEAN, VERY FEW blemishes.

under the cover is super clean.

(I did not see corroded components, loads of dust or any etc.)

all the keys are seemingly very level.

but no noise. — I am not very good with synth circuity, so I don’t want to touch it.

Can not get power to main “display”. Very likely that this issue could solve the functionality of the unit.

“Condition:Repairs have been done, and almost everything works. Each note has its own synthesiser circuit (Polycom Card). The two top keys will need a Polycom IC if you must have them sounding. Notes are Db and D. As it is a 71 note keyboard I didn’t bother replacing them. NOS of these ICs come up on eBay sometimes. It has been stripped, checked and rebuilt to be reliable, Polycom cards and sockets cleaned, keys and contacts cleaned, and all circuits re-calibrated. External condition is evident from photos. There is some wear on the chassis under the keys, and minor scratching on a few of the keys.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Great looking overall condition with typical signs of wear for the age. Inside looks great. Light wear/surface marks/sticker peeling/some key marks and discoloration/one slider knob missing/pitch strip has a little tear. When plugged in it lights up and produces sound but the sound is noisy. When moving switches around noise can be modified but with background noise still present. Preset buttons appear to change settings correctly, but its difficult to hear what the changes are with the noise. Will need to be gone over.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“A Moog Polymoog 203a analogue synthesiser, 1977.

In perfect working order, this synth has been professionally stripped, cleaned, serviced and rebuilt.

Power supply calibrated and tested, all PCBs cleaned, hundreds of solder joints reworked, many ICs socketed and replaced. It’s now very reliable and hardened to original polymoog transport issues. It’s clean and free of dust or dirt inside and out. All screws are present and original… absolutely no short-cuts.

“Sie bieten auf den Artikel Moog Polymoog Synthesizer Model 203A mit Koffer.

Es handelt sich um einen echten Highend Synthesizer von 1978. Fürsprecher lieben diesen einzigartigen fetten, schwebenden Klang. Namenhafte Musiker wie z.B. Kraftwerk (Computer World Tour, 1981) und ABBA nutzten diesen.

Mir fehlt die Expertise um das Gerät in ihren Funktionen zu überprüfen und wird deshalb als Defekt/Bastler verkauft.
Wie auf den Bildern zu entnehmen lässt sich das Gerät einschalten.
Der Artikel macht optisch einen guten Eindruck mit einigen korrodierten Schrauben. (s. Bilder)

All this along with regular servicing and cleaning.

The bad bits: The case has some scratches and marks from forty years of life. No more bad bits.

polymoog“ncluded is the Polypedal Controller 285a, which allows for external control of the pitch, filter, and volume through two large foot pedals. Sustain and trigger mode can be controlled by two smaller silver foot pedals, and external sync of the Polymoog can also be controlled.
When I plug it in, I get a large “humming” noise, with no signal passing through. As such, this is being sold AS IS.

used moog polymoog “For sale is my Moog polymoog 203a synth with poly pedals

It all works or I would say 95% of it does and on the odd occasion the odd note won’t on 1 or 2 on one of the presets but they are ok on others and they all worked today when I tried.

All of the LEDs and buttons and functions seem to work as all the sliders do too. I spent over £800 on this a few years ago at Ron Lebars having it all repaired. Its possible could do with a new service cleaning the cards etc and checking over for anything else but as we all know polymoogs so are unreliable so this is sold as it is and as not working just in case anything may happen when it’s moved to the buyers new home. Sometimes little minor things like the odd not work and then they don’t but most of the time most of it works. I will be able to show you.

As I’ve tried it today it all seems to work with the poly pedals that are also working. You are all welcome to try it before you bid or buy it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

polymoog “Polymoog 203a model with 285 controller pedals and legs completely rebuilt by New England Analog in March 2013. Serial number 3040.The rebuild cost $4500 over and above the $2500 I paid for the synth. You can search New England Analog’s website and go to service and photo gallery to see the 80 photos illustrating the rebuild. NEA also installed a custom formant filter circuit ( see photo of board with green connecting wires, you can also see the SMPS in gold )built into the organ patch to simulate the Vox Humana patch. NEA also has a YouTube demo of this you can search. Not perfect but if you set the saw and square wave LFOs at different rates using a narrow pulse wave at 2-15% duty cycle and run through a flanger, you can get it to 90% of the Vox Humana patch sound found on the 280 model.

The NEA rebuild includes the following:

Power supply replaced by SMPS which greatly improved the stability. Switched Mode power supplies incorporate a switching regulator to convert electrical power more efficiently than the original Polymoog PSUs. The SMPS generates almost no heat which is a godsend to the delicate internal circuitry in the Polymoog.
Replaced all switch indicators to blue LEDs.
Rebuilt Pratt Reed keyboard with new bushings and lubrication. Polished busbars.
Repaired and calibrated all velocity sensors.
Repaired faulty VCF envelope generator.
Repaired faulty capacitances in middle D modulator, changed several polycom chips to temper voices between notes
Replaced all polarized capacitors
Replaced all analog opamps, analog switches, multiplexers, and all CA 3080 OTA chips.
Repaired faulty Pass Mode switch on front panel.
Lubricated 285 controller pedals( the pedals alone have sold for upwards of $500
The modifications made by NEA with this rebuild added quite a lot of stability to the unit ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

used moog polymoog “Up for auction is a Moog Polymoog model 203A synthesizer. It powers up and plays somewhat. The sliders are scratchy, some buttons don’t work, some leds are out, most presets don’t work right, some keys don’t play, some keys play noise. The corners are chipped and the top has scratches (see pics), but it still looks pretty good overall. I purchased it many years ago with the obvious intention of fixing it, but never got around to it and now its just time to pass the torch. It deserves to be restored to its original glory!” Click here to visit listing on eBay
