TTSH Arp 2600 Clone

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

Came into stock: May 2022.

Servicing Status: Full health check by KSR has already been carried out in May 2022, so this TTSH is ready for sale now.

Remarks: This little baby clone of one of the world’s most famous analogue semi-modular synthesizers is a pretty good effort, and we have enjoyed playing it as it works like a 2600 and sounds great.  Having MIDI fitted is useful, and all the LED sliders are pretty.

Our client, a long time and experienced vintage synth owner, decided to try the TTSH back in 2017 as there were no vintage Arp 2600 available at the time. He purchased it from a UK builder (Mr Alistair) and has used it continually but circumstances now force the sale, so he’s asked us to handle the disposal for him.

Kent at KSR has gone through the TTSH (it’s a Rev 3) and it’s passed as all being 100% perfectly working.  As you can see from our photos, it’s cosmetically like new, although there is a small horizontal crack on the back-panel wood, near the output section, which you can see from the picture below, otherwise, it’s in excellent condition.

This TTSH is sold through RL Music with a 3-month warranty and operates off a 2-Pin external power adaptor (wall-wart) that’s rated 100-240V-to-12V/1.5A output. We were not supplied with any patch cables or a user manual, although we can supply an Arp 2600 user manual in PDF, which will cover the user needs of the TTSH.

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this TTSH worldwide (it’s not bog or heavy), although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so are subject to quotation.  There may be some short delays in getting the packaging materials produced for shipping as they are custom ordered for the specific dimensions of each instrument.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics and/or need a quote.

Sales Price: 

£3,690 GBP

As this is a brokered sale, VAT is not applicable on the sale of this TTSH to UK buyers, however, packing & shipping/insurance is subject to VAT @ 20% should you need the goods shipped to you.

Roland TR-808 w/MIDI

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

Came into stock: May 2022.

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR has already been carried out in May 2022, so this Roland TR-808 with MIDI is ready for sale now.

Remarks: The demand for high-quality examples of the world’s most famous drum machine continues to grow, so we were delighted to be able to offer this outstanding condition TR-808. 

Our client has owned this beautiful condition TR-808 for several years and had it fully serviced a few years ago by KSR who also retrofitted the Kenton MIDI kit into it. Kent at KSR has just given the drum machine a full health check so it’s all ready for its new owner.  It also comes with the perspex overlay, which is showing its age now but it’s done a fine job of protecting the panel.

Plenty has been said & written about this iconic instrument, and the significant number of clones/copies, and even Roland’s TR08, are all made in homage to the iconic status that the original machines hold.  It sounds great of course and is one of those ‘must-have’ instruments if you’re serious about your vintage analogue sound.

The operational condition is flawless, and as you can see in the high-res pictures below, the cosmetic condition is fabulous with only a tiny amount of any noticeable wear, which for an instrument that’s now 40+ years old is quite something.

This TR-808 is sold through RL Music with a 3-month warranty and operates on EU 220V and currently has an EU style 2-pin plug fitted as it has come from our client in Germany, although for any UK buyers of this we can fit a UK plug. We can supply the user manual in PDF format.

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this TR-808 worldwide, although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so are subject to quotation.  There may be some short delays in getting the packaging materials produced for shipping as they are custom ordered for the specific dimensions of each instrument.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics and/or need a quote.

Sales Price: 

£4,890 GBP

As this is a brokered sale, VAT is not applicable on the sale of this TR-808 to UK buyers, however, packing & shipping/insurance is subject to VAT @ 20% should you need the goods shipped to you.

EMS Synthi A

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

Came into stock: 

March 2022.

Service Status: 

A full service will be carried out once the unit is sold, which will add around 14 days to the post-sale completion.

Remarks: 

We’re pleased to be able to offer a really fantastic condition (single owner!) EMS Synthi A, which is priced well below exiting online prices for dealer supplied examples of these highly sought after vintage synths.

Background:

The current owner has bought this Synthi A from new, although it had not been in much use for some time and was stored away, so KSR was commissioned to prepare the Synthi for sale & Brokering through us.  The serial number is ‘4746,’ so Robin Wood at EMS is likely to have a manufacture date on this example, but it looks like an earlier production model.

Condition:

This Synthi A is in exceptional all original (unmodified) condition, and although it shows very little signs of wear and is a top condition instrument of this age (nearly 50 years old).  The Spartanite case is in excellent condition, and the nickel catches/hinges show a normal patina.  We have covered the key aspects instrument in the series of photos we have taken (see below), so we hope these candidly show the overall presentation of this instrument but if you need more then please just ask.

Operationally it’s 100% as a number of maintenance-related items have been carried out pre-sale, including a lot of deep-cleaning of pots sockets and the matrix panel, which has been flushed through.  Most of the work carried out y KSR is akin to an overhaul in effect, but we will have the Synthi A put through a final check and calibration post-sale, and attend to any normal service items needed at that point.

This EMS Synthi A can operate on either US-110V or EU-220V via a tiny switch on the front panel. We will include the proprietary EMS power cable (UK 3-pin type plug fitted) and a full comment of original Matrix Pins, although we would recommend a full new set be purchased for this instrument for best results when patching it up, which you can still source from EMS directly for around £260 GBP.  You can specify if you would like these supplied with the instrument upon purchase.

We don’t have any original paper documents with this but we can supply a copy of the EMS owner’s manual in PDF. 

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this EMS worldwide, although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so are subject to quotation.  There may be some short delays in getting the packaging materials produced for shipping as they are custom ordered for the specific dimensions of the instrument.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics and/or need a quote.

Sales Price: 

£12,990 GBP

As this is a brokered sale, VAT is not applicable on the sale of this EMS to UK buyers, however, packing & shipping is subject to VAT @ 20% should you need the goods shipped to you.

Availability:

Moog Prodigy

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

Came into stock: 

February 2022.

Service Status: 

A full health check by KSR was carried out in February 2022, but a detailed service will be carried out once the unit is sold, which will add around 14 days to the post-sale completion.

Remarks: 

It’s always a pleasure to be able to offer a Moog Prodigy, they’re like having an old friend to visit. This is a really super monosynth, full of thick sonic Moogy-ness, and punches well over its weight for such a little machine.

This example is a late EU version with the full complement of CV/Gate I/O on the rear panel – Model 3368X.

Background:

This late-model example was purchased brand new in 1981 by our client and has been kept at his home all this time, so a single owner only – that’s rare in itself!  It’s been packed away unused for a few years, so Kent at KSR did carry out a full health check and attend a couple of minor items that need attention, but he passed it as fit for sale, but it will be subject to a full post-sale service.

Condition:

The cosmetic condition of the control surfaces and keys is excellent with just some small signs of wear to the lacquer on the wood cabinet.  It’s quite possible to have the wood taken back and re-stained & waxed if you wanted but we think it’s best to actually leave it as-is, as it’s not damaged but just showing a little ageing….it’s 41 years old after all.

You can also see from the pictures we took that this Prodigy is fully 100% intact, so has all its original knobs & slider-caps, and the felt under the knobs is all in excellent condition.   

Health-Check & Servicing:

As mentioned above, this system has been through the hands of Kent at KSR as a pre-sales health check, but we will have the Prodigy fully checked again post-sale and any service items needed will be applied.

The Prodigy is a EU220V version and will supply the synth with a UK type IEC cable. We also have the original colour-printed owner’s manual, and a PDF scanned copy of the warranty card from Moog for this particular instrument.  The owner has the original warranty card still so we can ask them to post that on to the new owner post-sale.

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this instrument worldwide, although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so are subject to quotation.  There may be some short delays in getting the packaging materials produced for shipping as they are custom ordered for the specific dimensions of each instrument.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics and/or need a quote.

Sales Price: 

£1,700 GBP

As this is a brokered sale, VAT is not applicable on the sale of this Prodigy to UK buyers, however, packing & shipping/insurance is subject to VAT @ 20% should you need the goods shipped to you.

Availability: 

This Moog Prodigy is available for sale now.

E-mu Emulator III

We are Brokering this vintage sampler/workstation for and on behalf of our UK client.

Came into stock: 

February 2022.

Service Status: 

Full service by KSR was carried out in Summer 2021, but a health check will be carried out post-sale.

Remarks: 

First released in 1987,  The Emulator III was the benchmark, state of the art pro-sampler/synthesizer/workstation.  This was a very expensive bit of high-end kit that was used by all the major artists of the day.  Fully utilised for integration with ‘Macintosh’ computers equipped with MIDI, SMPTE, SCSI etc.  Yes, we’ve all moved on from SCSI, and we use DAWs mainly for digital sequencing now, but this was a serious machine for serious musicians in the 80s and was used on countless hit records. 

Winding forward 35+ years, the Emulator III sampler/synth/workstation is still a revered machine, sounds superb with its 16 Curtis 3387 analogue filters, and for aficionados of this genre of equipment, is highly collectable.

Background:

Our client, the owner of this Emulator III, purchased it from a dealer in the USA a few years ago and then wanted to have it fully optimised with a brand new Nalbantov USB floppy disk drive emulator with library installed, a new OLED display and the 4Mb Ram card upgraded to 8Mb so these upgrades are included. 

Condition:

The cosmetic condition is excellent with just some tiny signs of wear to the case & control surfaces.  You can see from the pictures we took that this example is full 100% intact, and in really super condition overall.

Health-Check & Servicing:

As mentioned above, this Emulator III has been through the hands of Kent at KSR back in the summer of 2021, but we will have this fully checked again and any service items needed will be applied, but the PSU was recently re-capped & OLED Display fitted (2021).  Please allow at least 2 to 3 weeks delay once the EIII is sold before we can effect a hand-over to the new owner, or ship it etc.

The EIII operates on either US110V or EU220V. A UK type IEC cable will be supplied in the sale.

Packing, Shipping, Insurance and Warranty: 

We can ship this sampler worldwide, although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so are subject to quotation.  There may be some short delays in getting the packaging materials produced for shipping as they are custom ordered for the specific dimensions of each instrument.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics and/or need a quote.

As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month (return-to-dealer) warranty, covering all parts and labour.

Sales Price: 

£5,000 GBP

As this is a brokered sale, VAT is not applicable to UK buyers, however, the packing & shipping costs are subject to VAT @ 20%, should you need the goods shipped to you.  The EIII can be available for collection from us directly in the South of England (Reading, Berkshire).

Moog Liberation

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

Came into stock: 

January 2022.

Service Status: 

A full health check by KSR was carried out in December 2021, and a full service will be carried out post-sale.

Remarks: 

A genre of instrument reserved for only a few who can pull off looking cool on stage, but a few did. Moog came out with the liberation at the turn of the 1980s with something actually quite beautiful.  It’s heavy, yes, but it’s got the Moog Rogue synth architecture, so sounds very Moog and punchy.  

These are very rare machines in 2022, and finding one that’s not been ‘restored’ in some way or another is even rarer, so we’d call this example a ‘survivor’ that’s 100% original in every detail.

Background:

Our client, the owner of this Liberation, has owned it for over 30 years and purchased them as he was simply a fan of the instrument and the association for the music they were played on back in the day.  The owner is not a professional musician, so the Moog has been kept in his home this last 3 decades and appreciated and admired as a unique piece of music instrument history.

Condition:

The cosmetic condition of both the keytar and the external interface (PSU & CV/Trigger hub) is very good, so we would rate both units as 8/10. The inherent problem with trying to keep a lacquered black surface on the keytar in good condition is always challenging, but we’d say the ‘cabinet’  has weathered the last 40+ years really very well indeed.  You can see from our pictures that the surface is in good order, with only one noticeable crack in the lacquer near the neck, but it’s not structural.  The lacquered can of course be restored if needed, but we feel the value in this vintage instrument is in its originality, so best left as is.

All the original controls, slider-caps, knobs are intact and everything still looks fresh and bright.  The interconnect cables are all present and in good condition, and looking at all the components of this instrument as a whole, you can easily see it has never been used outside the home environment since new. It’s a super condition example that would make anyone a proud owner.

Health-Check & Servicing:

As mentioned above, this Liberation has been through the hands of Kent at KSR back in December 2021, so he has gone through the entire operation of both the keytar & interface to check their readiness for sale.  Aside from some cleaning of the pots and sliders, and the key contacts, the Liberation is in very good operational condition.  We will have the PSU re-capped, a final clean and calibration covered off in the post-sale service, so please allow at least 2 weeks delay once the Moog is sold before we can effect a hand-over to the new owner, or shipping it etc.

This Moog Liberation operates on EU220V, we will supply a UK 3-Pin plug type IEC cable.

Packing, Shipping, Insurance and Warranty: 

We can ship this instrument worldwide, although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so are subject to quotation.  There may be some short delays in getting the packaging materials produced for shipping as they are custom ordered for the specific dimensions of each instrument.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics and/or need a quote.

As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month (return-to-dealer) warranty, covering all parts and labour.

Sales Price: 

£3,890 GBP

As this is a brokered sale, VAT is not applicable to UK buyers, however, the packing & shipping costs are subject to VAT @ 20%, should you need the goods shipped to you.  The Taurus 1 can be available for collection from us directly in the South of England (Reading, Berkshire).

Yamaha CS-70M w/MIDI

Service Status: 

Full service by KSR was carried out in December 2021, so this CS-70M is ready for sale & shipping now!

Remarks: 

We’re excited to be able to get hold of this really super condition CS-70M as they really are quite magnificent synths for a whole number of reasons.  These were proper old-school designed hybrid digital/analogue systems made between 1981 and 1984, and it wasn’t long after these came out that the DX7 was introduced, which seems hard to believe really.

The CS-70M has for many people been overlooked, overshadowed by its bigger brother – the CS80, but this instrument has ascended in popularity among aficionados, and we know this synth is highly sought after by those who truly appreciate it.

6 Voice, dual-channel (stereo), aftertouch, 30 memories, ring-mod, chorus & Leslie effects, lowpass, high-pass, and bandpass VCF, fully programmable and with a 4 channel polyphonic sequencer etc.

Those in the know will already tell you that this is one of the finest analogue polys ever made and a work of audio art in its own right.  It shares most of the same technology as the CS80 and many of the characteristics and tonal qualities as well. The big ‘plus’ over the CS-80 is the digital auto-tune facility that snaps the voice cards into tune upon powering up the synth.  These models do not suffer from any wayward tuning issues, so this was a step-change for Yamaha when this hybrid polysynth hit the market, of that over the CS-80 and its pure analogue foibles at least.

There are a few demos on YT of these but we like this rather ambient-noodling one from ‘MoreAnalog’ because it demonstrates nicely how the CS70M has the CS80 vibe we are talking about: 

https://youtu.be/1_jy9ERBTPs

Background:

We purchased this CS-70M from a UK collector who had owned it for over 20 years at his home, where the synth has been in regular use. The Kenton MIDI was retro-fitted to this CS70M before the seller purchased it back in the 90s, but it’s a welcome addition and really helps integrate the Yamaha into a modern studio environment.  The synth is not supplied with the consumable magnetic storage strips eluded to in the user manual.

Condition:

The cosmetic condition of this example is extremely good overall with only light user wear & natural ageing to the control surfaces. The faux wood laminate cabinet is in very good order with only a couple of spots where this has been worn.  We would grade this as “very good original condition – 8.5 out of 10 cosmetically.’

All the original controls, slider-caps, knobs are intact and everything still looks sharp and clean.  We don’t have any accessories with this, or an original user manual, but we can supply one in PDF format for the new owner.

About Servicing:

Operationally, our trusted and world-renowned ‘Yamaha CS Series’ restoration expert – Kent Spong of KSR, has already carried out a full service on the CS70M, so it’s 100% perfectly working and ready for its new owner now.  Servicing included re-capping the PSU, full system-wide test and calibrations and cleaning of sliders and pots where needed.

The CS-70M operates from 100V to 240V as there is a switchable PSU switch(s) on the back panel, and this Yamaha is supplied with its original and very specific 2-pin power cable.  

Packing, Shipping, Insurance and Warranty: 

We can ship this CS-70M worldwide, although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so are subject to quotation.  There may be some short delays in getting the packaging materials produced for shipping as they are custom ordered for the specific dimensions of each instrument.  We are happy to discuss your requirements so please email us if you have any questions on the logistics and/or need a quote.

As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month (return-to-dealer) warranty, covering all parts and labour.

Sales Price: 

£11,500 GBP

VAT is not applicable to UK buyers, however, the packing & shipping costs are subject to VAT @ 20%, should you need the goods shipped to you.  The CS-70M can be available for collection from us directly in the South of England (Reading, Berkshire).

E-mu Emulator 1

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

Servicing Status: Full health check by KSR was carried out in January 2021.

Remarks: A really nice condition example of the sampler that started off the legendary series: The Emulators, from E-mu Systems from 1981 until the 1990s.

The Emulator 1 was a truly groundbreaking instrument that is commonly considered to have started a music revolution in the use of samplers in popular music. Early adopters were some of the biggest names in the industry, like Michael Jackson (Quincy Jones), Stevie Wonder, Genesis, etc. There’s plenty about the history that can be found online, but the Emulator 1 is something very special, for a number of good reasons.

The Model number of this Emulator 1 is 6008 (serial #242- out of 500 built), which makes this a later production version 8 Voice system, built around 1983. The unique architecture of the E1 delivers the 8 voices in a 5/3 keyboard split, so 5 voices in the lower half, 3 at the top above the mid-point keyboard split.

The E1 comes has been modified with a brand new HxC SD floppy emulator fitted, so it has a library loaded onto an SD card that boots up with the E1, so no floppy discs are needed.  The SD card modification/upgrade was carried out by Synthprof (Andy Jury) in the UK in 2019 (original printed receipt supplied upon sale).

This is a very useful modification and enables the loading of library sounds a quick and simple process, and the system boots up from the card. This E1 also has the RS232 port fitted, so with the right software/hardware, you can access normally the system remotely.

Our client has not owned this Emulator 1 very long, having purchased it as a fully serviced example from a UK synth dealer (not us) in August 2019, but he commissioned KSR to fully health-check the sampler in 2020.  Once this is sold, we will ask KSR to fully check the E1 for us to ensure everything is 100% before sending it out to the new owner.

It looks to have been well cared for and, cosmetically speaking, is in good condition with only the expected amount of wear to the painted metal cabinet, although it looks to have had some treatment at some point to the rear/back panel. All the controls work perfectly, and the load/play/sampling functions are 100% thanks to the SD card upgrade, so it’s good to go.

This E1 is also supplied with 24 original 5&1/4” floppy discs, although these library files are already loaded on the SD card. There is a switch on the back so you can toggle between using the SD or original floppy drive if you wish.

This Emulator 1 operates on EU220V or US110V (switchable). We will include an IEC power cable.

We can be shipped to most destinations worldwide.

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.

Sales Price: £3,300 GBP

As this is a brokered sale, VAT is not applicable on the sale of this LAMM to UK buyers, however, the packing & shipping/insurance costs are subject to VAT @ 20%, should you need the goods shipped to you.  The E1 can be available for collection from us directly in the South of England (Reading, Berkshire).

Availability: This Emulator 1 is no longer available for sale – this page was updated on 4th August 2021.

Note on pictures, due to Covid: Click on the thumbnail for a higher resolution photo of the actual Emulator 1 for sale.  Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, Kent has offered to photograph the E1 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.

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 imagined 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; footprint 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 has 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).

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.

Sales Price: £9,800 GBP

As this is a brokered sale, VAT is not applicable on the sale of this LAMM to UK buyers, however, the packing & shipping/insurance costs are subject to VAT @ 20%, should you need the goods shipped to you.  The Prophet 10 can be available for collection from us directly in the South of England (Reading, Berkshire).

Availability: This Prophet 10 is available for sale now.

Note on pictures, again due to Covid: Click on the thumbnail for a higher resolution photo of the actual Prophet 10 for sale.  Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, Kent has offered to photograph the Prophet 10 at his premises in Surrey, so these photos come straight from him using the best photo equipment he has available.

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.

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.

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.

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.

 

Advanced Notice

Following on from our facebook post on 9th December 2019:

Did you know that more than a lot of what we sell doesn’t even make it to the sales page(s) on our website? This is because we have an ‘advanced notice’ book, a VIP list if you will, gathered for people who have made specific enquiries for makes and models ahead of time.

We’d like to open this process up to be more proactive, so have created a simple ‘sign-up’ form below that will enter you into an advanced mailing list that will ensure you are immediately notified of any exciting new (vintage) instruments coming through our business.

Click the VIP box below to get signed up. You’ll get a confirmation email once accepted, which is all done in accordance with very stringent GPDR rules.

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.

Update – 4th November 2021:

This Crumar Stratus has been in storage for a while now so will need a proper check by our tech, and may need some service-related work carried out before we can ship it.  As this is a Brokered sale and not our own instrument, we would need to apply a charge to service the unit for the buyer, so please bear this in mind if ordering the Stratus.  If you would like to understand the potential costs of servicing then it’s best to contact us directly to talk it through.  In addition, any servicing work will add up to 14 days on top of the time it will take between the sale and being able to get it ready for shipping or collection.

Price: £750 GBP.

Availability: This Crumar Stratus is available for sale now!
