Oberheim OB-8

“I bought this synth to use in my band and studio in 1983. I haven’t played it in about 20 years but the repair shop (Spectrum Sound – Indpls) inspected everything this year. I’ve included a receipt showing the condition. “Voice 3 fails autotune (bad CEM3340), voice 4 sounds bad filter circuit issue. Many keys don’t play (bad rubber key contact strips).” The outside appearance is nearly perfect except for a single scratch visible in one of the pictures which was actually caused by the leather case with zipper I had custom made for the synth. With a little TLC and a few minor parts, it should be fully functional.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This OB-8 has brand new keyboard contacts and was just serviced by my tech and has a clean bill of health. I’m hesitant on letting this one go but I’m sure the new owner will enjoy playing and owning this classic Poly Synth. This Synth has very low mileage for the over 15 years that I’ve owned it.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Up for grabs is a very good condition Oberheim OB-8. If you are in the market for one of these beasts, you know exactly what it does. This example includes the original manual and the software update manual that was included when updated in 1984. Besides the update, this synth is 100% original and works perfectly. In tune, all sounds and functions work properly, and has very awesome MIDI capabilities…a real piece of magic. Besides a scuff on the face, this unit is excellent and if not for the few scuffs it has this example would be nearly mint. “ Click here to search for synths on eBay

” (**IMPORTANT! THIS MUST BE PICKED UP IN WEST LOS ANGELES, CA. ONLY! CAN NOT BE SHIPPED! BUYER GETS ADDRESS AT END OF AUCTION. IF YOU CAN’T PICK UP, DON’T BID!**) WOW! You don’t often see these babies for sale…. A VINTAGE 1983 original OBERHEIM OB-8 keyboard SYNTHESIZER! With a pedigree you won’t believe! And I tested it out, first time in 25 years and it SEEMS to work fine. This beauty has NEVER been used by a band on the road. Was treated really well since 1983. Never banged around and was always covered with a blanket.

Hasn’t been used in literally 25 years. Having been stored away safely in a cold dark closet since 1994, this belonged to infamous supergroup/duo BARNES & BARNES! The “FISH HEADS” guys! They got this early model, which had just come out, back in mid-1983. Was used on their “Soak It Up” ep, all the way up to their Dinosaur Album in 1994, then they only used “digital” synths pretty much from then on. No one knew that 25 years later, THIS would again be the COOL old synth to own”

“This is the legendary Oberheim OB8 in pristine working condition. Cosmetically there are light signs of wear (all detailed in pics), most significantly a scratch on the upper right of the top casing, light scratches on the sides and back and some scuffing by the arpeggiator. Great condition for how old this keyboard is.

This unit was recently fully professionally serviced and restored. The work done included severe cleaning of pots, switches & contacts, unit was recalibrated, reset circuitry replaced on CPU, faulty power up circuit replaced, factory patches restored, tuned & scaled.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“This is an early model Oberheim OB-8 analog synthesizer from late 1982 and “Does Not” have factory MIDI. It has a small dent in the rear of the unit shown in the photos. Program 5 led is slightly brighter than the rest, one of the reasons for the lower price point. It looks like it was replaced before I owned the unit. I have it for almost 10 years and never had any issues. The same led comes on very dim when program 1 is pressed, please see the power on photo, it is hardly noticeable. My studio is well lit and always thought it was because the led was newer. All the programs work great! I do not ship internationally and only ship to the lower 48 states. If you have any questions please contact me. I will consider any reasonable offer. Get it while you can! Somebody “will” get this big boy if the price is right! They are selling for over $4k and the MIDI kit is cheap if you want to upgrade. I never had the need to use MIDI. It’s a super performance and recording keyboard, especially if you like Rush and Van Halen or other groups that used this type of keyboard!” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“This is an early model Oberheim OB-8 analog synthesizer and does not have factory MIDI. The unit is in excellent functional shape. It has a small dent in the rear of the unit shown in the photos. I’ve never had any issues with the presence of this dent. I purchased the unit with this issue and the previous seller did not have issues either. I have replaced the entire keybed with new contacts and thoroughly cleaned the unit. The volume knob sometimes has a slightly scratchiness only while turning when not in use for a while which is normal for its age. All buttons and knobs work as far as I can tell. It has all the original patches as far as I know. There is nothing like the sound of an OB-8! I have purchased many newer analog synthesizers and just don’t have room for this monster. It has a lovely warm 80’s sound! I “Do Not Ship Internationally” and only ship to the lower 48 states, Please No Inquiries. The unit is being shipped “As Is” because of its age. The unit has many internal boards that have not been removed so it should be fine to ship.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“This sale is for a vintage Oberheim Ob8 8 voice polyphonic analog synthesizer with factory midi. It’s in excellent cosmetic and working condition. It’s been cared for lovingly in a smoke free studio.

This particular OB8 was previously owned by Earth Wind and Fire, one of several they owned. After Maurice White passed, one of their techs was tasked with selling their extra gear; this was part of that sale.

the only reason I’m selling, I don’t use it much and would rather use the money than have it sit idle.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“This auction is for an Oberheim OB-8 analog synthesizer with MIDI. The OB-8 has its original cassette program tape, owners and service manuals. I did plug it in and it does work. Presets all seem to work as do all the led switches. The case does have a few light scratches, but there is nothing broken that I can see. If your local, please come and try it out. I do pack very well and will do my best to get it shipped to you with no damage. I will be listing more items soon. Thanks for looking at my auction.”
