Prophet 5 Rev 3.0

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

Came into stock: 1st September 2016

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

Remarks: We are delighted to offer this exemplary condition Prophet 5 Rev 3.0 that was fully pro-restored in August 2016 by a very respected UK synth tech we know well – Ben at Cyberwave (

These are truly unique sounding instruments so don’t be fooled in thinking the Prophet 6 is an alternative – it’s really not. There’s a certain punch and warmth that this vintage Curtis chipset based system delivers, and you just have to listen to a-ha, Soft Cell and Genesis etc. to appreciate how influential this synth was to musicians in the 1980s….and still is today.

Usefully, the Prophet 5 can be set up to operate in different temperaments from equal-temperament. The operating system allows you to program microtonal adjustments across the keyboard, and store this in the synth memory locations.

This particular example was purchased brand new, by the current owner, in 1979 from Rod Argent’s in Denmark Street, London. It has only ever been kept and used in the owners home, and we rate the condition as museum/collector grade – outstanding! It’s extremely rare to have access to buy a instrument of this age and in this condition, plus the provence of a single owner, so this is a fine opportunity to own a piece of music history, and without doubt, and excellent investment looking ahead.

This beautiful Rev 3.0 is completely factory original, so does not have the factory MIDI fitted like on the later 3.3 revision. However, we are able to supply and fit a Kenton MIDI kit if required, although this upgrade cost option is not reflected in the sales price below, so please email us for a quote for supplying & fitting this.

The operational condition is 100% perfect of course, having just been fully restored operationally by Cyberwave (and fully tested by us of course), and as such, is available for sale & shipping straight away.

This Prophet 5 Rev 3.0 is sold through RL Music with a 3 month warranty, and can operate on US 110V or EU 220V. We can also supply a user manual in PDF.

Price Post-Servicing: £4500 GBP.

Availability: This Prophet 5 Rev 3.0 is now SOLD, as at 6th September 2016.
