Prophet 5 Rev 3.2 w/MIDI

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

Came into stock: May 2020.

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR was carried out in September 2020, and a health-check was also done in May 2021, so this vintage Prophet 5 Rev 3.2 is ready for sale now.

Remarks: We are delighted to offer this fantastic condition Prophet 5 Rev 3.2 w/MIDI, which comes from a private seller based in the UK. The synth has had regular use and maintenance – evidenced by the perfect operational condition.

We could never have imagined that we would have to say this, but this Prophet 5 is the vintage original model, so not the 2020 Dave Smith re-issue.

These are unique sounding instruments, and 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.

Did you know that 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 is not something we have tried, but the user manual goes into some depth about how to achieve it.  

The operational condition is flawless, and as you can see in the high-res pictures below, the overall cosmetic condition (wood cabinet, front panel, modulation panel & rear panel) is outstanding for a 38-year-old instrument, with only very minor wear from use.

This Prophet 5 is sold through RL Music with a 3-month warranty and can operate on US 110V or EU 220V. Also, we have the original user manual so will be supplied with the synth, and the dust cover (pictured).

Note on Demos, and because…Covid:  The Prophet 5 is currently based in Surrey (UK) with our tech, Kent at KSR.  Although there are still Covid-19 restrictions in place throughout the UK at present, Kent has very kindly offered for anyone who would like to see and demo the P5 before buying it, to demo it at his premises.  Kent is able to set up the synth in a place that meets distancing rules, that’s safe for him and the customer, so if you want to check the synth out then that option is open to you. 

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: £5,500 GBP – no VAT applicable for UK buyers.

Availability: This Prophet 5 Rev 3.2 w/MIDI is SOLD.

Note on pictures, again due to Covid: Click on the thumbnail for a higher resolution photo of the actual Prophet 5 for sale.  Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, Kent has offered to photograph the P5 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…but he’s like that.

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.
