“Sequential Circuits Prophet 2000 sampler
with original manual & memory expansion board fitted
******** Around 90% of my studio gear has to go ahead of moving into a smaller purpose built space, so 50 or so items to list over the next couple of days, mostly vintage synths, samplers and drum machines, plus a few effects and 500 series modules and more modern items etc. All top notch studio gems and rarities with the emphasis on what sounds good, rather than what costs a fortune. Some of this stuff you won’t see again any time soon, so keep checking back as I’ll literally be photographing and listing on repeat! ********
OK, the Prophet 2000. HUGE sounding machine, works great, was serviced in October 2021, invoice included, £160 spent. It has the full original manual file (these can sell for £100 on their own), and has the superb Synthechnics memory expansion board fitted, which is a modern reliable version of the old 2x one, doubles the onboard memory, and was another £100 or so.
UK power lead included, and the original manual is in excellent shape. A few marks and scratches here and there and a bit of old gaffer tape residue on a back corner, but no structural damage, all controls are fine, servicing included the floppy drive but no discs included, you might want to go down the floppy emulator route these days anyway (personally I was always happy with keeping it stock and just firing stuff in and out of the DAW).
Anyway, check Espen Kraft’s video or any other review to see what this thing is capable of adding in a modern studio setting. Literally only letting it go as I have a Mirage I’ve owned almost since new which I’m irrationally attached to, and only one vintage sampling keyboard can stay in my new slimmed down set-up. But it was a close call!
Collection in person only, might be able to meet up somewhere for handover but really prefer not to ship it, these heavy old metal cased keyboards are just not worth the risk.”
