Prophet 5 Rev 3.3

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

Came into stock: November 2016.

Restoration Status: KSR to service once sold, and prior to shipping to the new owner. This Prophet 5 is in perfect working condition , but the servicing work is standard on all our vintage synths for sale, which includes reconditioning the power-supply etc.

Remarks: We are delighted to offer this very good condition Prophet 5 Rev 3.3 w/MIDI.

These are unique sounding instruments and don’t be fooled in thinking the Prophet 6 is an alternative…it’s 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.

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.

This particular example was fully professionally restored, and had MIDI fitted, by Wine Country in the USA in 2008 (Certificate of Restoration available).

The operational condition is flawless, although we will service the synth again prior to handing over to the new owner. As you can see in the high-res pictures below, the overall cosmetic condition (wood cabinet, front-panel & rear-panel) is excellent for a 33+ year old instrument, although typically, the screen-printing from the modulation panel has worn from use, but otherwise it’s in great shape.

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 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 Prophet 5 is sold through RL Music with a 3 month warranty, and can operate on US 110V or EU 220V. Also, a user manual (PDF) will be supplied with the synth, plus the restoration certificate from Wine Country (PDF) as mentioned above.

Price Post-Servicing: £4500 GBP.

Availability: This Prophet 5 is now SOLD as at 2nd December 2016.
