Andromeda A6

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

Coming into stock: Came into stock on July 2022.

Servicing Status: KSR have already carried out a full service on this A6 in July 2022;

Remarks: This more modern analogue synth, although over two decades old now (vintage yet?), has some serious curb appeal and could never be accused of lacking facility or punch.

The A6 is an inspired design by Alesis, but with production ceasing some years ago, the synth achieved cult status amongst synthesists, so another great synth for the halls of fame and used by too many artists to list.

The current owner has owned the A6 for only a few short years and only ever used it at home (smoke & pet free etc.), so the cosmetic and operational condition of the A6 is pristine. We sold this A6 to our customer back in 2018, so we know this machine’s quality is very high.

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

Our customer purchased one of the excellent quality Stardust synth covers for the A6 (pictured below), which is included in the sale.

Kent at KSR has gone through the A6, checking the power supply, the operational functions/switches, memory etc., and deep cleaning all the potentiometers, so there are no ‘jumping’ encoders, which is a known weakness of these machines.  As you can see from our photos, it’s cosmetically like new.

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).

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this A6 worldwide, although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so are subject to quotation.  There may be 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.

Price: £3,750 GBP.

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: 

£2,690 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.

Serge Modular

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: £9,900 GBP – There is no VAT applicable for UK buyers for this sale.

Availability: This Serge Modular is available for sale now.

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.

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.
