WSL Gnat Special

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

Came into stock: August 2022.

Service Status: 

Full service has been carried out by KSR in August 2022, so this Gnat Special is ready for sale & shipping/collection now.

Remarks: 

Around 1981, The Gnat Special was produced by Wasp Synthesisers Ltd, a business Adrian Wagner set up in competition with EDP Ltd, when he left them as managing director.  This is an extremely limited run machine, and we have never seen one before, so likely one of the rarest synths ever produced.  

This Gnat Special’s origins are clearly derived from the Wasp Deluxe, but it’s a cut-down version of that! So a very basic synth with no internal speaker, but it down has an unbuilt transformer so can operate straight from the UK Mains (220~240V).

This is clearly a collectors instrument, and considering we are also selling the Wasp Deluxe & Spider at the moment, would make a beautiful collection to own, and we doubt many, if anyone, could match this set.

Background:

Our client was a teenager in 1981, and her father purchased this Gnat Special for her (a really cool dad!).  She admitted to us that this synth had little if any appeal to her teenage life at the time, so it was put away in a cupboard and has resided there for pretty much 41 years.

The little Gnat was in need of some attention when our client approached us about Brokering it, so she commissioned KSR to carry out a full service on the synth, so it’s all 100% fully working.

Condition:

The cosmetic condition is excellent, and please check out our photos to verify that. The build quality is not Moog, so think hand-made British boutique on a budget, and you get a feel for the construction, but it’s in amazing original condition.

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this Gnat Special 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.

Sales Price: 

£1,500 GBP

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

Yamaha CS-80

We are Brokering this CS-80 for and on behalf of our UK client.

Came into stock: Came into stock in July 2022.

Service Status:  Full service by Mr CS80 himself, Kent Spong of KSR , was carried out in July 2022.

Remarks: 

A rare opportunity to buy the instrument that Vangelis made his own and is largely recognised as the finest analogue polysynth ever produced, the Yamaha CS-80.

Background:

This CS80 we are offering for sale comes to us for Brokering from a private owner who had sent the instrument to KSR directly for a full service to ensure it’s fully operational and ready for us to sell for them.  The serial number (#1107) tells us this is an earlier production version, so will date back to around 1978.  

Kent at KSR told us that he had this actual CS-80 in for a full operational refurbishment several years ago, so it’s had all the critical updates done for stability and longevity.  The service that’s just been carried out has mainly focussed on calibrations and a replacement Key-Assigner IC.  We fully tested the CS-80 at the KSR workshop on 11th August and can attest to it being 100% perfectly working – it’s got a lovely tone, with it being an earlier production model.

Most CS-80 have lost their ‘pedals, music stand and legs’ over the years, so we cannot supply these original accessories to the new owner, and like so many, this example for sale does not have any either. Also, this CS-80 does not have its original lid either.

If MIDI is required on the CS-80, then we can normally supply and install the Kenton Midi retrofit Kits for an additional charge, so please ask us for a quote to supply and install this for you. Please note that any modifications like fitting MIDI are only carried out after the synth has been purchased in full.

This CS-80 operates on EU220V but can be converted to US110V if required by Kent at KSR (subject to quotation).

Condition:

The overall cosmetic condition of this CS-80 is good, but it does show signs of wear to the control surfaces and tolex, as we would expect from a 44-year-old instrument, and we hope the pictures we have provided with this listing give you a good feel for how it presents.  Most importantly, it’s working perfectly, so it would serve as a superb studio machine, and because of the world-renowned skills of Kent at KSR with this model, he’s able to ‘dial in’ the tuning of the VCO to work optimally for this specific machine.  This CS-80 has not had any modifications done to it, so it’s a completely original example.

With Kent’s agreement, we took a picture of him with the CS-80.  As many of you will know, Kent Spong is recognised worldwide as one of the top CS-80 specialist technicians, so you could not have a more qualified person to set up this synth and support it.  Just Google ‘Kent Spong and CS-80’, and you will see that his reputation is well deserved where the CS-80 is concerned, and of course, just about any make and model of vintage synth.

Warranty provided on this CS80:

The CS80 is sold with a 3-month warranty as standard, which covers all parts and labour and telephone/Skype technical support from KSR.  The CS-80 currently resides at the KSR workshop, where it is available for demo (upon request). 

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.  Having shipped many CS-80 all over the world, we would recommend having it custom crated and palletised for shipping, which we can organise through our specialist suppliers. 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: £45,000 GBP

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

Roland JD-800

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

Came into stock: Came into stock in July 2022.

Service Status:  

Full service by KSR was carried out in July 2022.

Remarks: 

It’s not often that digital synths make it into the ‘vintage’ club, but the JD-800 has long been recognised as one of those machines that really stood out. We think it was not just the sound engine but the control surface that pandered to our need for dedicated access to functions other than all the usual menu-diving synths made in the 90s, so this was a huge appeal.

Background:

Our client purchased this JD-800 in the last 90s, although it’s hardly been used in the last 10+ years, so he commissioned KSR to fully refurbish the synth, which covered the key-bed issues these models suffer with. The synth was never used outside the home and comes supplied with the M-512E Memory Card (512K).

Condition:

The cosmetic condition of the outer plastic case in general, all control surfaces and the keys is very good, with just some small signs of reasonable wear for a 30-year-old synth.  You can see from the pictures that this JD-800 is fully 100% intact. All its original knobs & slider caps are present, and the key-bed has had the well-documented ‘glue’ residue issue fixed by KSR.  

The JD-800 is a EU220V version, and we will supply the synth with an EU-type 2-Pin cable that Roland used for these.

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 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

Wasp Deluxe & S...

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

Came into stock: July 2022.

Servicing Status:

Full service by KSR has already been performed in July 2022, so this Wasp Deluxe & Spider Sequencer are ready for sale now.

Remarks:

A really fantastic condition example of the ‘luxury’ version of this classic mono synth – EDP’s Wasp Deluxe, manufactured from 1979 to 1981. The Wasp sounds thick and creamy and is undoubtedly a design classic, and so much so that a well-known synth manufacturer is building clones by the thousands in 2022. In addition, the Wasp comes with the original companion, EDP Spider Sequencer, so this has to be a collector’s dream.

The Deluxe version of the Wasp basically provided the owner with a more traditional wood cabinet, larger speaker and a proper 37-note keybed, so perhaps had more appeal to musicians that could actually play a keyboard rather than messing around with the touch-sensitive keyboard that came with the standard Wasp.

It’s rare to find these special editions, and they have become highly collectable.  The original EDP Wasp is a brilliant creation from Chris Huggett and brought analogue synthesis to many of us youngsters, who back in the late ’70s had little money to spend on our music passions.  We were very saddened to hear that Chris passed away on 22nd October 2020, another genius British synth designer gone.  Chris leaves us with a legacy that has already stood the test of time and popularity into the 21st century. Any of us could only dream of achieving so much.

The Spider Sequencer is also a super rare find and a super addition to the Wasp synth.  This is a 256-note step and 84-note real-time sequencer which interfaces with the EDP Wasp or Gnat. There are controls for entering notes in step/real-time and transposing sequences by semi-tones, whole-tones, major-3rd, or perfect-5th, as well as control for speed. It also has CV/Gate outputs for connecting it to other synths.

Background:

Our client has owned this Wasp Deluxe & Spider Sequencer since new, and looking at the condition of both units; we’d say that they were cherished and very well looked after.

Cosmetically, both machines are in outstanding condition, and as KSR has just completed a detailed service, they are 100% fully functional.

This Wasp Deluxe & Spider both operate via external 9V DC PSUs, of which two have been supplied by our client. The seq-to-synth interconnect cable has also been supplied. In addition, there is an original EDP Wasp user manual, which has to be collectable on its own!

Our client has asked us not to split the Wasp & Spider as they have been together for around 40 years, and we agree that it would be a shame to split them.

As these instruments are being Brokered through RL Music, they are sold with a full 3-month warranty.

Packing & Shipping:

We can ship these instruments worldwide, though 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.

Sales Price: £5,000 GBP (for both)

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

Moog Prodigy

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

Came into stock: Came into stock in July 2022.

Service Status:  

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

Remarks: 

A lot of Moogyness in a small package; the Prodigy punches well above its weight in terms of what an analogue synth can and should sound like, and we love them!

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 on 9th January 1982 (we have the sales receipt!) 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 in July, and he passed it as perfect, but it will be subject to a full post-sale service to cover things like recapping the power supply.

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.  You can see from the pictures that this Prodigy is fully 100% intact, has all its original knobs & slider caps, and the felt under the knobs is all in excellent condition.   Our client did implement a small modification to VCO2, which you can see in one of the images below. This minor modification provides voltage control of Oscillator 2 by the Modulation Wheel (and hence LFO) and/or the Envelope Contour (the one dedicated to the filter rather than the VCA). As such, the modification is primarily for use when Oscillator Sync engages and provides some really unique sounds.

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,  

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 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: 

£1,450 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.

Roland Juno 60

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

Coming into stock: Came into stock in July 2022.

Servicing Status: KSR has already performed a full service on this Juno 60 in July 2022;

Remarks: This Juno 60 was purchased by our client some years ago and was only ever used in the home.  The cosmetic condition is very good, and the whole synth only shows light indications of use & wear to the control surface and faux wood cabinet, but overall, it’s a very nice machine at an exceptionally good price. 

The design of the Juno 60 has to be one of the best Roland ever produced in terms of simplicity of sound design and warmth of character. The Juno 60 has been a ‘go-to’ synth for working musicians wanting that vintage sound for quite a while now.  It kind of defies logic that a DCO synth could deliver such a lush and musical tone, and it’s won the hearts and minds of all synthesists who’d had the opportunity to own or play one.

This synth sounds and operates like all Juno 60 should, and KSR has just fully serviced the synth, so it’s 100% working perfectly and good to go.  The price has been agreed with our client to reflect the overall condition and to try for a quick sale, so it’s likely the best value Juno 60 in the world being sold from a dealer.

This Juno 60 is sold through RL Music with a 3-month warranty and operates on EU 220V.  It does have an old flight case, but it’s worn and has no handle. If you were to collect the Juno 60 from us, the flight case would serve as useful protection for transport in person, but we will not ship the synth in the case.  There’s also a printed b&w copy of the owner’s manual; we also can supply this in a PDF if needed.

Packing & Shipping:

We can ship this Juno 60 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: £2,700 GBP.

Roland Jupiter 6

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

Coming into stock: Came into stock in July 2022.

Servicing Status: KSR has already performed a full service on this JP6 in July 2022.

Remarks: This Jupiter 6 was purchased by our client some years ago and is only ever used in the home.  The cosmetic condition is excellent, and the whole synth only shows very light indications of use & ware – this is remarkable for a keyboard nearly 40 years old!  

The Jupiter 6 has been a hugely popular polysynth since its arrival in 1983 and offers aficionados that beautiful vintage polyphonic analogue Roland sound for a very reasonable cost, certainly when compared to its sibling, the Jupiter 8.  Prices for these models in recent years have seen a significant uplift as vintage polysynths are getting rarer and rarer to find in good condition, let alone the condition of this example we have available.

This JP6 has not had any modifications to its factory spec, which our client said was an early production version (sn #343786).  This is often important for buyers who prefer to either leave them as stock or upgrade them according to their own needs & budget, depending on what retrofit solutions may be available in the marketplace.

The Jupiter 6 is a professional-grade vintage instrument that’s only ever going to become more sought after and rarer, so here is your opportunity to buy a beautiful condition example, fresh from the hands of a master synth restorer (Kent Spong), and fully guaranteed by RL Music.

This Jupiter 6 is sold through RL Music with a 3-month warranty and operates on EU 220V. The is supplied with an IEC power cable (UK 3-pin type).

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this JP6 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: £5,500 GBP.

As this is a brokered sale, VAT is not applicable on the sale of this JP6 to UK buyers. However, packing & shipping/insurance is subject to VAT @ 20% should you need the goods shipped to you.

Availability: This Jupiter 6 is now SOLD.  THis listing was updated on 15th August 29022 @ 10:23 GMT.

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.

Memorymoog w/MIDI

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

Came into stock: 

April 2022.

Service Status: 

Remarks: 

We present the rare and rather epic Memorymoog (standard Mk1 version), in excellent cosmetic condition and was previously sold to our client after it had been fully overhauled to top operational condition in 2017.

Background:

Our client purchased this Memorymoog from RL Music in late 2017 and had a Kenton MIDI retrofit kit added to it at that time.  The Moog has been used only in a home studio since then and had been back to KSR for a check over and calibration.

Condition:

Although no cosmetic restoration has been carried out other than deep-cleaning to all the exterior surfaces, the cosmetic condition is 100% original and excellent, as you can see from the pictures below.

Being an ex-RL Music restored Memorymoog, we are proud to see this instrument looking so beautiful and perfectly working, so a testament to the investment made into its preparation 5 years ago.

Health-Check & Servicing:

KSR has already full assessed the Memorymoog for us before we put this up for sale, so we know it’s in perfect working order, but we will have another health check carried out post-sale, which will add around 14 days to the post-sale completion. A full system-wide operational restoration by KSR was carried out in 23rd August 2017.

This Memorymoog operates on EU 220V. it’s sold with a 3-month warranty. Included with the sale is a UK IEC Power cable, and we will also include a PDF copy of the user manual.

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:

Roland HS-60

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

Came into stock: 

February 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: 

The consumer version of the Juno 106, has been gaining popularity in recent years simply due to the price point on the 106 having gone up so much.  The HS-60 is architecturally identical to the Juno 106 (aside from the speakers obviously), so for the savings against the 106 it’s looks like a good deal in 2022.

Produced around 1985, the HS-60 is a 6 voice DCO based polysynth that sounds the same as a Juno 106, which is a really good thing as the 106 is a super sounding vintage synth.  It all comes with MIDI.

Background:

Our client purchased this HS-60 only a few years ago, and the Roland has only been used at his home.  It had previously been retrofitted with the 80017A VCF VCA Juno-106 voice chip Filter IC clones from Analogue Renaissance, so it’s all been sorted.

Condition:

The cosmetic condition is excellent, but check out pour photo’s to verify that.  addressed then.

Health-Check & Servicing:

Operationally it’s 100%, but we will have KSR fully check the HS-60 post-sale and any service items needed will be addressed.

This HS-60 is a EU220V machine, we will supply a UK type plug IEC cable.  We don’t have any original paper documents with this but we can supply a copy of the owner’s manual in PDF.  In addition, and for UK buyers who are able to collect from us only, we will supply a flight case in the sale, free of charge.

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this HS-60 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.

Minimoog #12841

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

Came into stock: 

February 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: 

It’s a rare opportunity for us to handle such an outstanding condition, pro-restored vintage synthesiser, and we are very pleased to be able to offer this late production version of vintage Minimoog (serial number 12841).

Background:

Our client purchased this Minimoog from RL Music in late 2006, and they (clearly) lovingly cared for it at their home since then and used it regularly.

In 2006 this Minimoog went through a complete professional restoration by Kent at KSR, which covered every possible aspect of the instrument, both operationally & cosmetically.  The original cabinet was stripped and re-finished.  As vintage examples go, this is pretty much a perfect Minimoog and, as it has been for our client, a fabulous future investment.

This is a late production version of the world’s most famous synthesizer, so stable and tracks beautifully across the octaves on all three VCOs. There is an informative website dedicated to the Minimoog serial number history and registrations here:

Lords of the Mini

Condition:

You can decide by looking at the pictures below on how to measure this but we’d rate it as excellent, collector-grade. The cosmetic condition of the control surfaces keys and wood cabinet are all outstanding, and this Moog is over 40 years old!

Being an ex-RL Music restored Minimoog, we are proud to see this instrument looking so beautiful and perfectly working, so a testament to the investment made into its preparation 16+ years ago and how that has stood up after nearly another 2 decades hence.

Health-Check & Servicing:

As mentioned above, this Minimoog was restored for us by Kent at KSR in 2006. Although the Minimoog has not been back to the workshop in the last 16 years, it’s actually in perfect working order, but we will have KSR service it, so check the power-conditioning and calibrations, key contacts etc.  There’s not much if anything that will need doing, but the servicing will ensure we are confident that the Moog is 100% before handing it over to the new owner and supporting it with our warranty.

This Minimoog can run either EU220V or US110V (switchable) and has a UK type plug fitted to the power chord.  We don’t have any original paper documents with this but we can supply a copy of the owner’s manual in PDF.  In addition, and for UK buyers who are able to collect from us only, we will supply a flight case in the sale, free of charge.

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this Minimoog 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.

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: 

£1,490 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.

Oberheim OB-Xa, DX, ...

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

Came into stock: 

February 2022.

Service Status: 

A full health check was carried out by KSR on all three units in January 2022, a more detailed service on each machine will be carried out post-sale.

Remarks: 

Here’s a very rare opportunity to pick up a beautiful vintage Oberheim collection that centres around a superb condition OB-Xa, and is companioned by the DX Drum Machine and  DSX Polyphonic Sequencer.  

Background:

Our client, the owner of this superb condition collection, originally purchased the OB-Xa from us in 2017, when we had fully restored it that year, so it’s been good to see this synth again.  Our client went to a lot of time, expense and trouble to subsequently source the DX and DSX machines from collectors, and was only ever interested in absolutely top condition examples.  All three machines have been located in our client’s home studio since he purchased them.

In addition, our client had made some very high-quality (branded) covers for the OB-Xa and DX Drum Machine.  The DSX also has the original proprietary interconnect cable to run the sequencer into the OB-Xa. We’ve included multiple pictures here to show all these items.

Condition:

The cosmetic condition is excellent with just some small signs of wear to the control surfaces and wood end-cheeks of all three machines.  You can also see from the pictures we took that all three instruments are fully 100% intact, so all have their original Oberheim knobs, faders etc.   

This OB-Xa is an 8 voice system that has the 120 program memory upgrade fitted, as well as a Kenton MIDI kit.

Health-Check & Servicing:

As mentioned above, this system has been through the hands of Kent at KSR as a pre-sales health check and everything was 100% operational, but we will have all three instruments fully checked again post-sale and any service items needed will be applied, but the OB-Xa was fully restored in 2017, as mentioned.

The OB-Xa & DSX operates on either US110V or EU220V, the DX is an EU voltage model. A UK type IEC cable will be supplied in the sale for all three machines. We also can produce a PDF copy of the user manual for the OB-Xa and DSX.

Packing, Shipping, Insurance and Warranty: 

We can ship these instruments 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, they will be sold with a full 3-month (return-to-dealer) warranty, covering all parts and labour.

Sales Price: 

Oberheim OB-Xa = £6,990 GBP – SOLD

Oberheim DSX = £850 GBP – SOLD

Oberheim DX = £1,600 GBP – SOLD

We would rather keep this collection together and sell it as a package, however, individual sales can be considered.  

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 instruments can be available for collection from us directly in the South of England (Reading, Berkshire).

Moog Taurus 1

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: 

First released in 1975, the Moog Taurus 1 (47 years ago!), the Taurus 1 carved out a reputation as the go-to Bass Pedal of choice for most of the biggest bands of the day. It’s still in use today by many artists, although Moog’s reissue has probably retired many of the vintage units from daily use, it’s a killer bass synth nonetheless and they are now scarce and highly collectable.

Background:

Our client, the owner of this Taurus 1, has owned them 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 is very good for what is a floor-standing foot-playing instrument, so we would rate this 8/10. It’s clear but looking at the Bakelite pedal covers that this Taurus 1 was never used ‘on the road’ so it’s has had a very gentle life.  There are some signs of wear of course, and a small mark on the laminate cover, which we’ve highlighted in the picture below.  There is some glue residue showing from around the overlay.

The aluminium chassis & anodising is in good order and the faux wood sides are in great condition.  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 set of Taurus 1 has been through the hands of Kent at KSR back in December 2021, so he has gone through the entire operation of the Moog to check its readiness for sale.  Aside from some cleaning of the pots and sliders, and the pedal contacts, the Taurus 1 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.

The Bass Pedals operate on either US110V or EU220V as there is a switchable PSU (button on the back panel), and as the Moog is a UK supplied unit, so comes fitted with a UK 3-Pin type plug to the power 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: 

£3,190 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).

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.
