Our UK client has kept the Serge in his home studio since purchase, and admitted themselves that it has had very little uses since it was purchased, so here’s a fantastic opportunity to get a professionally build system now, without all the wait and import hassles, and any VAT added for UK buyers.

Cosmetic Appraisal:

As you can see from the pictures, the 3-panel system is in ‘as-new condition and comes fully enclosed in a custom Gator flight case.  There’s not much to add here as it’s all in beautiful condition.

Also included in the sale is a substantial collection of used and brand-new (unopened) banana-jacks, un-racked multiples modules and the power supply, which has all the correct power-distribution board/connectors to run the individual panels.  

This Serge Modular operates on EU 220 via the external power supply (pictured below). The Serge is sold with a 3-month warranty. 

Ordering From the EU (Post 1st Jan 2021): 

Now the UK is no longer a part of the European Union, we all have new levels of bureaucracy to deal with when you buy equipment from any business in the UK, for onward delivery to any destination in the EU.  In order for us to be able to ship to the EU now, we will require you to supply an EORI number if you are buying from us as a business, which will be provided in the Commercial Invoice that goes with the consignment.  Private individuals purchasing equipment from us will not require an EORI number but the goods will still be subject to VAT, which is charged by your own countries Customs, to clear the goods, so we now do not charge VAT on our purchasing invoice. The VAT rate applied upon import into your country will be set by your own countries applicable VAT rates.

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this instrument worldwide, although the packing & shipping cost is not included in the sale price below, and is subject to quotation.  There may be some short delays in getting materials produced for shipping, although courier companies all seem to be operating normally.  Although the Serge is contained within its own Gator flight case, this would not be sufficient protection for shipping it in, so additional packaging will be required for exporting it, subject to quotation.

We are happy to discuss your particular requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics.

Sales Price: £12,500 GBP – There is no VAT applicable for UK buyers for this sale.

Availability: This Serge Modular is available for sale now.

Vostok & Oberkorn 3 Feb15

Vostok & Oberko...

We are Brokering these instruments for and on behalf of our UK customer</strong>

Came into stock: December 2020.

Restoration Status: A full health-check by KSR was carried out in December, so both these instruments are ready for sale now.

Remarks: We are Brokering this Analogue Solutions Vostok and Oberkorn Sequencer for our UK based client.  Both items have only had very light use at our clients home, so are in almost ‘as-new’ condition and fully operational.

Our client purchased the Vostok around 2010, so believes this is version 2,  and the sequencer is the Oberkorn 3 Version.  

There is a lot of information on the internet about these models, so we won’t go into any detail here, but these pure analogue instruments are beautifully made, boutique, buy Tom Carpenter of Analogue Solutions.  Tom builds some amazing instruments, and currently is offering an EMS Synthi 100 type, console synthesizer which blows our minds! You can fully appreciate the talent and love of analog synths with all of Tom’s creations.  The Vostok has a clear nod toward the Synthi A of course, but all the AS models are built to an exceptionally high standard and made to last.

In order to encourage buying the two instruments together, as a package, our client has agreed to a really very good price for both units, so see the details below.  

We have the owners manual for both instruments available as a PDF.

Note on Demos, and because…Covid:  This Analogue Solutions combo is currently based in Surrey (UK) with our tech, Kent at KSR.  Although there are strict Covid-19 restrictions in place throughout the UK at present, Kent has very kindly offered for anyone who would like to see and demo the synth & Seq before buying it, to demo it at his premises.  Kent is able to set up the synth & sequencer in a place that meets distancing rules, that’s safe for him and the customer, so if you want to check the synth out then that option is open to you. 

Alternately (recommended), Kent can produce short video demo’s to show the working condition of the Synthi A, but this is by request only.  If we get a single request to do this then we will, of course, upload that to the KSR YouTube channel and probably just post it here in the listing, but Kent’s a very busy guy (good techs always are) so he’s not had the time to proactively do this for us and/or these instruments.

Packing & Shipping: We can ship this worldwide, although the packing & shipping cost is not included in the sale price below, and is subject to quotation.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics.

Ordering From the EU (Post 1st Jan 2021): 

Thanks to all those who voted us out of the European Union, we/you now have new levels of bureaucracy to deal with when you buy equipment from any business in the UK, for onward delivery to any destination in the EU.  In order for us to be able to ship to the EU now, we will require you to supply an EORI number if you are buying from us as a business, which will be provided in the Commercial Invoice that goes with the consignment.  Private individuals purchasing equipment from us will not require an EORI number but the goods will still be subject to VAT, which is charged by your own countries Customs, to clear the goods, so we now do not charge VAT on our purchasing invoice.

Sales Price for both Vostok & Oberkorn3: £3,200 GBP

Sales Price for Vostok: £2950 GBP

Sales Price for Oberkorn3: £470 GBP

Availability: The AS Vostok & Oberkorn 3 are available for sale now.

Note on pictures, again due to Covid: Click on the thumbnail for a higher resolution photo of the actual instruments for sale.  Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, Kent has offered to photograph the P5 at his premises in Surrey, so these photos come straight from him using the best photo-equipment he has available. It’s our workaround for the Covid issues/restrictions and we’re very grateful to Kent for helping us all out…but he’s like that.

If you require specific pictures not already featured of the instrument then please contact us so we can request that Kent at KSR can accommodate your request, but there may be a short delay in getting this done for us/you.

SCI Prophet 10

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our UK customer

Came into stock: October 2020.

Servicing Status: Full health-check by KSR has already been carried out in September 2020, so this Prophet 10 Rev 3 is ready for sale now.

Remarks: A very rare opportunity to own what has to be one of the most impressive looking synths of its era (1980), the mighty Prophet 10 and this example comes with a MIDI retrofit.

We could never have imaged that we would have to say this, but this Prophet 10 is the vintage original model (there’s a clue in the pictures), so not the 2020 Dave Smith re-issue Prophet 5 with extra voicing.

Who wouldn’t have had their mind completely blown away when this came to the market in 1980, a twin keyboard mega-polysynth…just wow!  And, to add the cherry on top, it was a Prophet 5 (CEM based version) with 10 voices, and stackable.  So yes, it’s huge in every respect; foot-print and that fabled Prophet sound.

One of our dear customers, a well-known vintage synth user and very successful musician, MrFirechild, produced a brilliant demo of (just) the Prophet 10, in 2015.  You can see/hear the 3:34 music video on his YouTube Channel, or you can just click the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/user/MrFirechild

The current owner, our client, has only owned this for a short time, having purchased it in the UK from a specialist vintage keys dealer in 2019 (not us) – it was sold to our client as a  fully serviced unit. KSR have fully health-checked the Prophet 10 for us and it all checks out fine (it was serviced properly), although the original micro-cassette that would have been used to store and recall the poly-sequences on those tiny magnetic tape cartridges, no longer works (very common). 

Cosmetic Appraisal:

Overall, this Prophet 10 is in very good condition but does show some normal signs of use and its age.  We have taken some septic pictures that highlight the most obvious blemishes, but we think it’s a nice example that would make anyone a very proud owner.

This Prophet 10 operates on 240V or US 110V (switchable). It’s sold with a 3-month warranty. We will include an IEC power-cable and a copy of the user manual (PDF only).

Note on Demos, and because…Covid:  The Prophet 10 is currently based in Surrey (UK) with our tech, Kent at KSR.  Although there are strict Covid-19 restrictions in place throughout the UK at present, Kent has very kindly offered for anyone who would like to see and demo the P10 before buying it, to demo it at his premises.  Kent is able to set up the synth in a place that meets distancing rules, that’s safe for him and the customer, so if you want to check the synth it out then that option is open to you. 

Alternately (recommended), Kent can produce short video demo’s to show the working condition of the P10, but this is by request only.  If we get a single request to do this then we will, of course, upload that to the KSR YouTube channel and probably just post it here in the listing, but Kent’s a very busy guy (good techs always are) so he’s not had the time to proactively do this for us and/or the P10.

Synth Miniatures

RL Music, in collaboration with Ronaldo Lopes Teixeira Rolt, are delighted to announce the launch of Vintage Synth Miniatures

Back in 2007, we had an idea to offer high-quilty hand-made scale reproductions of vintage synths, but exhaustive searches to find the right person or business that could help us came to nothing, so we shelved the whole thing but still had the ambition to realise that idea.

Winding forward to late 2019, we finally had some success as we made contact with a massive vintage synth fan who also happens to makes scale models. Talk about the perfect fit!

Ronaldo Lopes Teixeira Rolt, an Illustrator and graphic designer, although now retired, is a Prog Rock lover and vintage synth fan. He’s lives in São Paulo, Brazil, and has been producing artwork and models for many years as a hobby. However, more recently he’s been promoting his ‘vintage synth miniatures’ through attending synth related events in Brazil, so his models and skills have reached a wider audience, but he plans to keep this labour of love as a hobby. Ronaldo was very interested to work with us at RL Music due to the obvious synergy and shared passion for vintage synths, so we offered him a way to channel some business back to him, and satisfy our own need to build our own vintage synth miniatures collection to go with our original instruments in the RL Music Collection.

Ronaldo was invited by Mr Michel Geiss (Jean-Michel Jarre’s partner) to make an exhibition at Synthfest in France last June 2019.

UVI, the well known French Music Software Company, commissioned Ronaldo to produce 53 miniatures (keyboards and drum machines) for them.

Ronaldo, a huge Prog Rock fan, decided to build Rick Wakeman’s rig from 1973…

How to Order

This first PDF (vintage_synth_miniatures_gallery) is a 21Mb file. It contains 77 images that Ronaldo has supplied us of the 1/6 scale models he has previously made.

vintage_synth_miniatures_gallery.pdf

This second PDF (Ronaldo_the_builder) is a 1.8mb file that has images of Ronaldo himself at some synth events with his collection, and shots from his workshop.

Ronaldo_the_builder.pdf

This last PDF (pricing_summary) is the current price list to purchase the models as listed in the gallery PDF above.  It also covers some Q&A you may have, but please call or email Richard if you have any questions if not covered in the document.  This price list will be updated when new models become available. Ronaldo is entirely open to requests to make just about anything vintage keys (drum machines, sequencers etc.) related, so ask Richard at RL Music for a quote to make your favourite instrument if you can’t see it listed.

pricing_summary.pdf

We hope you are as excited as we are about this launch. These beautifully hand-made replicas are so cool, and you know already that they are instant collectables, and we all know what happens with ‘collectables,’ so get your shopping list together and give Richard a call or email.

Crumar Stratus

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our UK Client.

Came into stock: Available from RL Music from February 2020.

Servicing Status: A health-check has been carried out by KSR but we will have it fully serviced as a priority once the sale has been completed.

Remarks: This is a rare instrument in 2020, and an unusual Organ/Strings combo that brings something different to the table at a time when the world was dominated by big Prophets, OBs and Jupiter polysynths in the early ’80s.

It’s a CEM based 6 note polyphonic analogue system that employs two DCOs that are then distributed through dived-down ICs.  This architecture would have been used to keep the costs down, so you can see the Stratus was aimed at the consumer market. It sounds really nice, warm and very vintage in character, and is still very affordable today.

As you can see from the pictures below, the cosmetic condition of the panels and faux wood are excellent on this 35-year-old machine, and the Stratus still has its original gig-bag and three overlays. There are some small marks to a couple of the key-tops and minor scuffs here and there, but we think you will agree, it’s a fine example and certainly the best condition Stratus we have ever seen.

We think the Stratus is cool and a low-cost way of reaching into that vintage sound, that early ‘80s electronica vibe, and offers musicians something different socially when the current generation of cheap synths are all sounding the same in a world that is full of replicants.  

This Stratus is sold through RL Music with a 3-month warranty and can be shipped worldwide. The synth operates on EU 220V via an IEC socket, power-cable supplied (UK plug fitted).

Demos are available by appointment only.

Packing & Shipping: We can ship this worldwide, although the packing & shipping cost is not included in the sale price below, and is subject to quotation.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics.
