Synare @ 23 August 2016, Comments Off on Star Instruments Synare S3X

s3x “This rare vintage Synare S3X by Star Instruments is in good working condition. Includes a copy of the Synare S3X manual, 1/4 inch cable, Drum sticks, and universal power adapter. The type of power adapter that comes included with this drum usually comes with multiple tips to fit a variety of different devices. I have included its appropriate tip and have taped it to the cord to prevent loss. Although the power adapter is not the original Synare power adapter it is fully functional. Drum pad is aging and creates white dust. Please review pictures and see condition. Item is in great condition, works, and ready for use.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Synare Sequencer “The listing is for a 1970’s Synare Sequencer for Synare 3.

I bought it years ago when I was into analog drums and synthesizers
but I never got to use it, don’t have the power supply.

I opened it to check the insides and they look very clean,
there are a couple of Motorola chips and an Intel ’76 (check pictures).

Please check pictures for item condition or feel free to ask questions.

The item will be sold AS IS.
No reserve. Absolutely no returns.
International bidders welcome (different shipping rate).
Thanks for looking.
Happy bidding.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

synare3 “Perfect working condition! Recently serviced by Waveformless synth shop, fixed all cold solder joints which is a common problem with these since they get repeatedly hit with a stick, replaced caps and batteries and tested. Sounds amazing, pure analog synth with 2 oscillators filters etc the sweep sounds sick. Nothing like it. Has some white pencil markings and the screws are not original, some paint chips and cosmetic wear but works great. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

s3x “This is a rare Synare S3X Drum Synth. Please read carefully so you know what to expect.
I tested the unit and couldn’t get any sound out of it. Therefore it is being sold AS IS NON WORKING FOR PARTS with no returns.
The metal bottom plate is missing.
The Tune knob of OSC 1 is missing the plastic cap. The knob itself seems to be a replacement and not the original.
Cosmetically, it has a good amount of wear. The rubber pad has a lot of damage and cracks (see photo) and will probably need to be replaced. The unit has scratches, marks etc.
The S3X takes a 9v adapter with a mini jack plug and tip polarity is positive.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

I’m not sure what it will or will not take to get it fully functional. Schematics are available online. Consider it for parts.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Synare @ 01 March 2016, Comments Off on Star Instruments Synare Lo Tom

Synare Lo Tom.
Vintage Synare Lo Tom drum synth made by Star Instruments in the early 80s, in very good condition for it’s age. Functions perfectly, recently serviced.

The Synare Lo Tom produces a low-pitched drum synth sound that can be tuned and decay time can be adjusted. Similar to the Synare 3, except that the oscillator is tuned lower in pitch. Lots of sounds and tuning “drift” can be coaxed with the RUN setting. Very good cosmetic condition for its age; wear on head as to be expected.

These are very rare, only a handful of them made, even rarer than the Synare 3. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Synare @ 03 November 2015, Comments Off on Star Instruments Synare 2

synare 2 “Super Rare Star Instruments Synare 2 Analog Percussion Synthesizer from around 1978. I bought this a few years back NOS from a music store that closed shop. It comes with a custom Calzone case (maybe the only one in existence!). According to one of Star’s founders, about 50-75 of these units total were built. I’ve been collecting these units over the past 15 years and I have to say this is the best cosmetic example out there. Pads look like they have never been hit. Missing a few slider caps, previous owner (store) said they disappeared while on display at the store. As with just about every Synare 2 I’ve encountered, this unit has the common mis-triggering issue, where it takes more effort to get some pads to work than others, and some double-trigger. All pads do work though. Sequencer works. Calzone case is fully functional but has a some surface rust and the foam inside was rotted so I gutted it. If you want to get the triggering working right I’d send it to Switched On in Austin, maybe the only people in the US who know these things. Additional description: This model was manufactured from 1976 to 1982 and was Star’s flagship model. This was very much like the Synare 1, with one oscillator with sawtooth, and pulse waveforms, white noise generator, etc. But this had assignable functions, ie. routing the LFO to control certain parameters at once. The LFO also added a sawtooth waveform You could also select a wide range of octaves for the pitch to sound at, along with a fine tune function. A major adjustment was the introduction of a fairly advanced sequencer with different patters, and the ability to change patterns and octaves. You could also adjust the speed and the note(s) sounded by the sequencer. This model features 16 pads instead of the previous four.”” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Synare @ 20 October 2015, Comments Off on Lot of 2 Synare 4 Project Machine

syanre4 “Two very rare synare 4s.

One is in very good cosmetic condition, one not as good.

I attained these a few years ago, and never attended to them so it is time to let somebody with more enthusiasm take them.

I was told one worked and one didn’t, but i never attained a proper power supply to test. As far as I can find, they need an 18v 1/8″ connector power supply with + center, but please do your own research.

I am selling them as not working as I am not able to test, so please do not complain if neither of them work, but one might.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

synare 3 “The original and best DUB drum synth.
I’m in two minds about selling this Synare, but I hardly get a chance to use it anymore so it seems a shame to just keep hanging on to it.
Original 1970’s model created by Star Instruments and used on countless hit records from the 70’s and 80’s. Remember the electric snare sounds of Ultravox (Vienna), Gary Numan, Flock of Seagulls, countless disco records etc.
Can be used for more than just drum sounds and can make amazing fuzzy bass sounds, synth zaps, whooshes and all kinds of weird analogue synth fxs as well as amazing electric snares that sizzle and crack.

Lovely unit and works perfect and the sensor pad is in very good condition which responds to how hard you play the pad.
Also included is the original drum mount which allows for you to mount this on a drum stand.

There are some marks here and there on the unit which seems to be common on these items; it is from the 70’s and has spent its life being hit buy a drum stick.
Pad is in really good condition and is one of the best I have seen on these vintage Synares and is very responsive and has loads of life and spring left in it.
All dials and switches work.
They don’t come up for sale that often as people tend to keep them because they sound great.
Bargain price for quick sale. Please do not ask me to do deals outside of ebay or offer me deals, this is a great price for a Synare.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
