Roland Juno 60

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

Came into stock: Available at RL Music from 31st May 2018

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: Time capsule Alert! We were delivered the Juno 60 from our client today and can really only describe this machine as in factory new condition. Our Client stepped out of his time machine and handed it to us….well, it has certainly felt like that looking at the condition of this Juno 60.

This completely original and unmodified Juno 60 was purchased new by our client in 1983 from a well-known music store on in the South of England (Eddie Moors’ Music) and has been kept at the owners home since. It has been used regularly throughout its life and the operational condition was perfect when we tested it this morning. This is a really rare find and the Juno 60 even comes with all its original documents and program data cassette! A very much loved and cared for instrument and the cosmetic condition reflects this perfectly as it’s immaculate.

The Juno 60 is the same synth as the Juno 6 but the 60 has programmable memories and MIDI Capability. As with its sibling, the sound engine is the same beautifully warm vintage Roland sound, but having the memories on the 60 makes it more of a ‘go-to’ synth for working musicians wanting that vintage sound.

This factory standard Juno 60 is in ‘collector grade’ condition 9.9 out of 10.

We’re very pleased to be able to offer this immaculate vintage synthesizer as a Brokered deal, and we will be fully servicing it and selling it with a 3-month warranty.

This Juno 60 is, without doubt, one of the finest condition examples we have ever seen. It also is supplied with its original Roland Factory Programs A/B Cassette, Juno 6 Operation Manual and Patch Program Data Sheet (all pictured below).

Runs on EU 220V.

If you want MIDI to be fitted to this Juno 60 and have a preference to which Kit you like then please contact us about the supply and/or installation cost as this is not included in the sales price below.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

Price: £1890 GBP.

Availability: This Juno 60 is now SOLD as at 1st June 2018.

Korg Trident Mk1

Came into stock: Available from RL Music from 23rd May 2018.

Restoration/Servicing Status: KSR has already fully serviced this Trident Mk1, so it’s ready for sale now!

For those of you who are unsure of what this machine is let us tell you that it is one of the very last best kept vintage analogue secrets left in the world. This is an SSM technology based – Synth, Brass and String Machine and packed full of modulation, voicing and timbre controls as well as onboard effects in the form of an absolute killer Flanger and beautiful Ensemble. Simply…It’s gorgeous!

Being a Korg, the build quality of this 1980 produced synth was very high, a testament to the fact that it’s still working perfectly, all the original controls are intact and it’s built like a tank.

This Trident was purchased from a UK owner who had owned it for 25+ years and kept at home. The operational condition is remarkably good, and the synth has just been serviced by KSR. The cosmetic condition is also good for its age, with the main control surfaces only showing what we would expect to be reasonable wear for a nearly 40-year-old instrument.

The wood cabinet does show has some inevitable wear & tear, but we have not applied any restorative work to it to keep the sales costs down. The price below reflects the condition, and the Trident Mk1 represents the best value example in the world…by far!

The Trident is sold with our standard 3-month warranty and runs on EU220V voltage. We will also include a copy of the owners manual (PDF).

Price: £2290 GBP.

Availability: This Korg Trident Mk1 is SOLD as at 30th May 2018.

Roland VP330 Plus

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

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music on 17th May 2018.

Servicing Status: A full assessment was by KSR carried out on 11th May – a full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: An immaculate condition example of the final production version of the iconic Roland VP330 Vocoder PLus.

The VP330 was always loved for the rich analogue strings and alone make this instrument worth having, but the vocoder section with the external mic & synth inputs, can deliver some very exciting voicing effects and timbres & triggering etc. The VP330 has been used by Vangelis (Blade Runner) to William Orbit and many contemporary artists, so it has a long and distinguished history of use.

Our client has owned this VP330 Vocoder PLus since 1987 and it has been in regular use, and serviced regularly, during their 31 years of ownership. Cosmetically, this 35+ year-old vintage Roland is in truly fantastic condition and we would rate this as a Collector Grade – 9.5 out of 10. The main control surfaces are all still looking fresh, with and all the controls intact. The faux wood cabinet is in excellent condition also.

Our own vintage synth restorers – KSR, have very recently fully health-checked the synth as part of the pre-Brokering assessment, so we’re happy it’s fully operational, with all functions/control working smoothly and as you would expect, but the VP330 Plus will be fully serviced post-sale.

This VP330 Vocoder PLus operates on EU 220V and is supplied with the user manuals in PDF format. As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month warranty and can be shipped worldwide.

Demos are available by appointment only.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

Price: £2600 GBP.

Availability: This VP330 Vocoder Plus is now SOLD as at 29th May 2018.

SCI Pro-One

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

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music on 10th May 2018.

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR has already been carried out so the synth is ready for sale & shipping now!

Remarks: RL Music is delighted to present you this great condition Pro-One from the classic Sequential Circuits family.

The Pro-One is a superb mono-synth, utilising Curtis CEM chip technology like her bigger brother, the Prophet 5. A really great sounding vintage analogue synth and very flexible modulation routing capability and wonderful built-in arpeggio & 40 note sequencer.

This Pro-One has come to us from a UK customer who has owned it since the 1980s, but in recent years it had become unused, so they decided to let it go to someone else who can enjoy using it again.

The synth is in really good original condition, but this is not a collectors machine as it does show some cosmetic blemishes around the mod-wheels and another under the LFO section. We understand that there was some sticky tape left there some years ago and the residue has left some marks the case. We felt this minor cosmetic flaw needs highlighting to any potential new buyer, but the sales price has been agreed with our client to reflect this.

This is an early model (J-Wire), with the PSU mounted to the PCB. KSR has just fully serviced the synth, which included a new set of neoprene keyboard bushes, full calibration, re-cap of PSU, deep-clean of all pots, switches, a full overhaul of the key-bed and also restored the wood end-cheeks (stained & waxed).

As you can see from the pictures, this Pro-One is looking great and is 100% perfectly working – sold with our normal 3-month warranty.

Runs on EU 220V, and we will supply a copy of the user manual (on PDF).

Price: £1290 GBP.

Availability: This Pro-One is now SOLD as at 11th June 2018.

Andromeda A6

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

Coming into stock: Came into stock on 9th May 2018.

Servicing Status: KSR have already carried out a full health-check on the A6.

Remarks: This ‘modern analogue’ synth has some serious curb appeal, and could never be accused of lacking facility or punch.

Alesis was clearly inspired when they realised the A6, but with production ceasing some years ago now, the synth has already achieved a cult status so another great synth for the halls of fame it seems.

The current owner has owned the A6 from new and has only ever used it at home (smoke & pet free etc.), so the cosmetic and operational condition of the A6 is pristine.

Running on OS: Version 1.40.12
Build Date: 4th December 2002

This Andromeda A6 is sold through RL Music with a 3-month warranty and can operate on US 110V or EU 220V. The A6 is supplied with an IEC power cable (UK 3-pin type).

Price: £2990 GBP.

Availability: This Andromeda A6 is now SOLD as at 23rd June 2018.

Make Noise B&GS

We are Brokering this Make Noise Black & Gold System for and on behalf of our UK client

Came into stock:  8th May 2018.

Restoration Status: A health-check by KSR will be carried out post-sale.

Remarks: The owner of this system purchased it last year and it has been used on many recordings, some of which were broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

The cosmetic condition is ‘as new,’ and operationally it’s perfect – as you would expect from a nearly new machine.

The system is stock except for the following:

It includes the Make Noise Phonogene sampling/looping module. Make Noise have since superseded this with the Morphogene but the Phono is perfectly adept at using audio as either a sound or modulation source. Chop it up as you wish and either play it manually or trigger it from the internal modules or externally.

Our client added Make Noise ‘Brains’ to provide expanded sequencing options and Expert Sleepers ‘Disting Mk 4′ for additional modulation and clocking.

As mentioned, the system is in flawless condition and comes with a few Make Noise blanking panels if needed, but as you can see from the picture below, it is fully populated.

These remarkable systems are retailing for £4.5+ in the UK, so we offer an opportunity here to snag one and save over £900 on a new unit.

KSR Service notes:KSR will carry out a full health-check post-sale, but we know this is a perfectly working system. RL Music will supply this system with a full 3-month warranty.

The owners manual can be found online/downloaded from the following link:

http://www.makenoisemusic.com/content/manuals/sharedsystemmanual_1.10.pdf

Runs on EU 220V via an AC adaptor.

Price: £3590 GBP.

Studio Electronics C...

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

Came into stock: Available from RL Music from 6th November 2017

Restoration/Servicing Status: KSR to service once sold, and prior to shipping to the new owner.

Remarks: Not a vintage synth, but the Studio Electronics Code 8 has a mighty reputation and is a proper discrete-built analogue poly synth – a serious pro-audio instrument, and a modern classic without any doubt.

This CODE 8 was purchased new buy our client in 2013 from sxpro in London, and was fitted with the 8 x Arp 2600 Filters and the 8 x CS80 Filters upgrade options. It has never been racked, and has sat in his smoke free home studio in the UK since with very little use, hence the decision to sell it to fund new projects.

The synth is in perfect operational and the main control surface is in mint cosmetic condition, as you would expect for something 4 years old, although there are some marks on the large printed logo on the top of the instrument. We will have the synth fully checked over post-sale. It will be supplied with the original owners manual and retail box (as pictured).

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

This CODE 8 is sold with a 3 month RL Music warranty and runs on either 110V or 220V.

Price: £4500 GBP – price includes the 8 x Arp 2600 and 8 x CS80 Filters.

Availability: This CODE 8 is no longer available for sale – updated 4th July 2018.

Pictures of the actual CODE 8 for sale (customer supplied) are below.

Arp 2600 Tonus &...

We are Brokering this Arp 2600 Tonus & 3604-p keyboard for and on behalf of our UK client.

Came into stock: Available from RL Music from 20th March 2018

Restoration/Servicing Status: KSR will fully service this Arp 2600 post-sale.

We present the stunning and iconic early-1970s Arp 2600 semi-modular which contains the sought after (and so-called) pre-lawsuit Moog 4012 style filter. This instrument is around 45 years old and just looks and sounds absolutely amazing.

This very early Arp 2600 Tonus, with original 4012 Filter + 3604P Keyboard controller, features: Semi-normalised – 3 VCOs, 4 pole Lowpass VCF, VCA, Ring Modulator, 2 EGs, sample & hold Noise, Mic Preamp, Spring Reverb, Voltage Processor and Four Octave Keyboard….the list goes on

We previously sold this actual Arp 2600 Tonus back in 2009 to our client we are Brokering it for, so it’s great to see the synth back again looking so beautiful still. The ‘Total Restoration’ work restoration was also carried out in 2009 on this Arp, and covered all cosmetic and operations aspect of the synth, details as follows:

Notes on the cosmetic condition:

The control surfaces/panels on the synth & keyboard were stripped, repainted and screen-printed. The Tolex covering and bright-work was in need of restoration (as is common on the old Arp systems), so KSR re-Tolex’d both units, and replaced all the exterior nickel-plated components. The Keys on the 3604-P were in good shape, so where kept original to retain that authentic vintage ageing across the key-bed.

Notes on the restoration:

Aside the repainting, screen-printing, re-Tolexing and replacement of the exterior brightwork mentioned above, the operational restoration on the 2600 was extensive, and mostly all Arp 2600 systems we see these days need this level of attention. KSR had undertaken a complete ground-up rebuild of the electronics with full test and calibrations and PSU rebuild etc. Each and every slider was split apart, cleaned and rebuilt, every jack cleaned & tested, and a system-wide check of all connectors, and solder joints etc. The keyboard was stripped an completely overhauled, and new busting fitted etc. Where possible, all the original parts were retained to ensure continuity and authenticity but some ageing components like power conditioning caps have been replaced, but only were absolutely necessary.

In the last 9 years since the Arp 2600 was restored by us, the synth was used and kept at home with our UK client, who has taken great care of it. The cosmetic and operational condition is perfect and the same as the day we handed it to them.

This is a fantastic opportunity to buy one of the most iconic vintage synths ever made, and the price has been agreed with our client to keep it very competitive, and incomparable to any Arp 2600 being sold anywhere in the world right now…it’s a Total Restoration RL Music vintage synth, after all!

The original 3604P keyboard is useful, and is a historically correct partner for this model of 2600, and has had a modification to the output connector as you can see in the pictures. KSR actually implemented the DIN socket mod, which is a much more reliable connection than the propriety Arp block connector which was always a weak link in the chain we have found. in reality, the 3604-P offers limited access to the extensive inputs into the main synth, so to get the most out of the 2600 we would recommend using a multi-channel Midi to CV device like the Kenton Pro-2000 which can give you 3 note polyphonic control if needed. We can supply a Kenton Pro-200 but is not included in the sales price below, so please ask us for prices.

These outstanding synthesizers are hard to find in decent condition, so here is a rare opportunity to own a superb fully professionally restored example that will only appreciate in value and add something special to your studio.

Supplied with all (restored/Tolexed) lids and DIN CV/Gate interconnect cable. The Arp runs on EU 220V via a standard IEC power connector. We will also supply an Arp 2600 owners manual (PDF).

As with all Brokered Sales, the Arp 2600 will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner, although this synth really only needs a ‘health-check’ as it’s in such good condition throughout. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full 3-month warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

Price: £7990 GBP.

Availability: This Arp 2600 Tonus is now SOLD as at 23rd March 2018.

EMS Synth A Mk2

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

Came into stock: October 2017.

Restoration Status: A full service by KSR has already been carried out (completed on 1st November 2017), so this instrument is ready for sale now.

We’re delighted to be able to offer an EMS Synthi A Mk2 to our customers who want to experience a vintage EMS but don’t need the extra expense/facility of the KS (Keyboard/Sequencer) that the AKS model offers.

Identical to the Synthi AKS (synth) in sound & operation, the Synthi A is the ultimate portable synth, packaged in the same Spartanite case and offering the endless programming possibilities through the matrix panel interface. EMS originally named the Synth A the “Portabella” which followed the naming conventions of its early synths like the “Putney (VCS3 Mk1)” and Cricklewood (DK1) keyboard etc.

The EMS Synthi A was first brought to the market by EMS the same year as Moog launched the Model D Minimoog to the world – an auspicious year for synth fans indeed! This example we are offering for sale is a later revision, an Mk2, and was manufactured during the Datamonics company ownership period which would have been between 1979 to 1982. The Mk2 Synth A is usually identifiable but the power-conditioning components used internally, but the metal silver anodised panel is another way to quickly identify them, as the earlier (Mk1) versions were usually painted (white), although there may have been some cross-over.

Provenance
Our client literally rescued this Synthi A from a London school back in the late 1990s who were throwing it out, and the synth bears the marks of this being a genuine educational tool for children. You will see from the anodised metal panel that it was been hand-inscribed with “ILEA” and other markings. Most people in the UK would recognise that as meaning “Inner London Education Authority” – so this synth has faithfully served fresh young minds in its time, and perhaps even enthused a few (like we were back in the day) to take their love of synthesis further into adulthood….bravo!

Our client has used this instrument regularly since the 90s and even gigged with it for a few years in London, so this synth is not a ‘glass-case’ collector’s item by far, but to many people that brings its own appeal and means it has a genuine evidenced history & story to tell.
_______

At some time in the life of the instrument, an IEC power socket was fitted to the synth. The implementation is good. We assume that the use of the usual proprietary EMS power-cable was a problem for the school as these easily get lost, so someone fitted the IEC to it.

As this instrument is nearly 40 years old, and quite commonly, it did not come to us any significant service history from our client. We commissioned KSR to carry out an extensive ground-up overhaul to bring it up to a perfect operating specification, whilst ensuring its authenticity is preserved as much as possible. Electronic instruments of this age need a deep level of restoration, but we approach this kind of work sympathetically.

The restoration time & resources invested into this instrument by KSR include:

>Strip-down of panels & Spartanite case.
>Spartanite case deep-cleaned, re-finished & all hardware cleaned.
>Control Panels deep-cleaned.
>Every control component (potentiometers/switches/matrix panel), cleaned & lubricated
>Power-Supply re-capped & calibrated.
>Full system-wide calibration & soak-test.

The above restorative work is the minimum we asked KSR to carry out as they would all need this level of attention due to their age, but In addition to the above, the following work can also be carried out by request. This is a costed option, so is not included in the sales price listed at the bottom of this page:

*VCO stabilisation modification implemented in line with EMS guidelines = £400 GBP

*This Synthi A comes with a full complement of matrix pins, although to be honest, these original 38-year-old pins are well past there best so we would recommend you also purchase a brand new (full) set of matrix pins (supplied from EMS) for = £250 GBP

Our client did not ask us to get get the panels re-anodised/screen-printed as they always felt it’s history was an intrinsic part of the life of the synth, so it comes as it was used and intended for – an educational instrument in the 1970s with a genuine provenance. However, if you prefer to purchase this Synth A and then want to have the panels refinished (re-anodised/screen-printed) to look like new, then this is possible of course, so please contact us for a quote to have this carried out.

This instrument operates on EU 220V. The instrument is sold with a 3-month warranty from RL Music and we will also include a user manual in PDF format and a UK-plug IEC power cable.

Price: £7200 GBP.

Availability: This Synthi A Mk2 is now SOLD on reserve as at 28th March 2018.

Moog Source

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

Came into stock: Available from RL Music from 1st March 2018

Restoration/Servicing Status: KSR have fully serviced this in February 2018, so it’s ready for sale now.

Remarks: We’ve not had a Moog Source in for a while so it’s been great fun diving into this machine again and hearing that distinctive vintage Moog sound. The 16 memory storage was quite a departure for Moog back in 1981 as they had not previously offered patch storage on a mono synth before, and the modern membrane panel design was also revolutionary for Moog at that time. It’s a super sounding machine and has a great many fans, but with prices going up in recent years it’s ‘value’ has been under pressure somewhat, so we are pleased to offer this example at an amazing price!

Moog Source: model #341 BX, S/N 2237X.

Our client, the owner of this Moog Source, purchased it in 1985 and it was used regularly until the late 1990s in his studio, after which it was stored away in its flight-case for a few years. It was later brought out in 2012 and used again up until 2015, so has been a reliable and trustworthy synth for decades.

The synth is in perfect operational condition and has just had a full service from KSR. Cosmetically, this is certainly not a collectors machine but it has been in regular use for most of its life, showing signs of expected wear and some marks to the control surfaces, but most importantly, the membrane, controls & keys all work perfectly and are undamaged – as you will see from the pictures we have taken (below). The price reflects the cosmetic condition, so has been agreed with our client to represent the best value Moog Source you can buy in the world today and they want a new owner to enjoy the amazing sound and character that this vintage Moog offers.

This Moog Source is sold with a 3 month RL Music warranty, runs on EU 220V and is supplied with its original hard-copy owners manual.

Price: £1490 GBP.

Availability: This Moog Source is now SOLD on reserve as at 6th March 2018.

EMS Synthi 2013

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

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music on 21st February 2018

Restoration Status: This nearly new EMS Synthi A is in perfect working condition and KSR have already given it a ‘health-check’ in the last couple of days, so this instrument is ready for sale now.

We’re delighted to offer a rare chance to buy a recently manufactured EMS Synthi A that Robin Wood at EMS only assembled in October 2013 (we have a copy of the original receipt). This Synthi A has also been fully modified by EMS with a suite of upgrades (done at the time of manufacture). As many of you know, the waiting list to buy one of these exquisite machines from Robin has been running at around 12 years, but we spoke to him recently and he confirmed that production is now finishing due to the Spartanite cases no longer being available.

This late 2013 model (serial number 45643) sounds identical & works the same way a vintage Synthi does, plus it has all the advantages of being a nearly new machine! It’s immaculate as you would expect and works flawlessly. This instrument has only had 2 owners since 2013, this first only having it for a couple of months (unused) before emigrating and selling it to our client. Our client found it did not suit their own style of music, so it’s barely had any use at all so it needs to find a new home.

A note of the EMS implemented Mods:
Oscillator Synth on Osc2
Voltage Controlled Shape Osc1 & Osc2
Filter mode switchable 18/24 db/oct
Filter ‘unslew’ switchable on filters CV
Buffered external gate input

Included in the sale (pictured below):

Proprietary EMS power-cable
Full set of Matrix Pins

EMS RVG

We are Brokering this vintage EMS module for and on behalf of our EU customer

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music on 15th February 2018

Restoration Status: A full service by KSR will be carried out post-sale.

Remarks: An extremely rare vintage EMS ancillary studio module – the Random-Voltage-Generator, mounted in its original Afrormosia Wood case.

What is it, and what does it do?
The RVG produces a staircase type of output, the ‘steps’ of which occur randomly, but whose voltage range and time variance are controllable. The proprietary ‘facilities cord’ (pictured below) provides links all the outputs to a Synthi ‘A’ or VCS3, delivering VI to Input 1, V2 to Input 2, and Trigger to Attack.There is a very informative page on the ‘Old Tech – Vintage Synthesizer’ website that covers the RVG in some depth, so please click the link below to learn more:

http://www.oldtech.com/synth/EMSRandom1.html

As you can see from the pictures below, this RVG is in really nice 100% original condition with only some small signs of wear, as you would expect from a 45-year-old device. It’s is sold with a 3-month warranty and runs on EU 220V using the proprietary EMS power-socket (power cable supplied), and also included is the aforementioned proprietary ‘facilities cord.’

As with all Brokered Sales, the RVG will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

Price: £1300 GBP.

Availability: This EMS Random-Voltage-Generator is now SOLD as at 22nd February 2018.
