Came into stock: 10th October 2013

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: We’re delighted to be able to offer, what we consider is without any doubt, the finest condition Jupiter 6 in the world.

This Jupiter 6 has the Europa upgrade fitted and was purchased from new, in the UK, by the customer we are now selling it for. I has only ever been used in the owners home and lovingly cared for as their prized possession for over 30 years, but they have finally decided to let it go to fund other music projects.

The famed ‘Europa’ firmware upgrade for the Jupiter-6 provides a truly modern MIDI specification where all the synth front-panel parameters are controllable via Continuous Controller (SysEx). This brings the Jupiter 6 beautifully into the 21st Century DAW environment and adds significant ‘owners’ value to the synth.

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 very reasonable cost, certainly when compared to its sibling, the Jupiter 8. It’s a professional grade vintage instrument that’s only ever going to become more sought after and rare, so here is your opportunity to buy and absolutely stunning example that’s got to be a keeper!

Runs on EU 220V, is supplied with a flight-case, custom made dust cover, original Roland owners manual and Europa manual – all in pristine condition as well.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner.

SCi Prophet 5 w/MIDI

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3.2 with Kenton MIDI

We’re delighted to be able to offer you this really superb condition Prophet 5 that has only just been fully restored by KSR.

These are unique sounding instruments and don’t be fooled in thinking the Prophet 08 is an alternative – it’s really not.  There’s a certain punch and warmth that this 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.

The Kenton MIDI kit works flawlessly and brings the P5 into the DAW environment nicely which keeps the synth in step with all the modern music tech.

Restoration included full system overhaul (re-capped/calibration etc) and clean and keyboard assembly deep-clean with new bushings.  The wood case has been also been re-finished with new name plates fitted etc.  All the potentiometers and micro-switches were cleaned as well so all are smooth to touch and operate. The original factory patches have also been loaded to finish her off and presents a cosmetic finish that looks as-new and 100% perfect in operation.

Runs on EU (220V) and US (110V) and is sold with a 3 month warranty from RL Music.

Price = £3750 UK Pounds

Availability: The Prophet 5 is now SOLD on deposit as at 3rd October 2013

Korg MiniKorg-700S

What a utterly fantastic little gem of a synth this is and loved by many synth heads (like us). The MiniKorg 700S is by any standards an archaic synth, but it’s really rather special indeed and has been used by all the great synth bands, including the Human League (“listen to the voice of Buddha” etc.).

Plenty of stuff on the net about these wonderful old-school analogue synths, and we rate them very highly, with 10/10 for character and quirkiness and the same for the flexibility & quality of the wonderful analogue sound it produces.

This particular example is in almost as-new condition..stunning! We have had brand new Walnut end-cheecks made for it by Lamond Design, and the whole synth has been fully pro-restroed by KSR, so this is arguably the best condition example available for sale in the world right now.

Operates on EU 220V and sold with a 3 month warranty.

Guide Price: £1290 GBP

Availability: This Korg MiniKorg-700S is now SOLD as at 23rd April 2014.

Korg MS20

This is for an original Korg MS20 (vintage) from the late 1970s.

With all the interest with the new Korg MS20 Mini it’d easy to get caught up in all the excitement, but the fact remains that the original MS20 is still the ‘real deal’ and a much coveted full sized semi-modular system with true vintage authenticity. The pleasure of owning an original/vintage analogue synthesizer can’t be understated just because a new boy is on the block from Korg, and this new mini-synth has certainly fired up everyone’s imagination, which has to be a good thing for analogue fans.

The other good news is that second hand prices for the ‘vintage Korg MS20′ have seen a reduction in the last year or so, so we were also able to source this really super condition example for a reasonable price.

So now is a good time to get hold of an original MS20, and we have this really beautiful condition example for sale.

The excellent cosmetic condition suggests only ever light home use during it’s life over the last 30+ years. KSR have just fully restored the synth, which is quite a big job on these models and requires the whole synth to be disassembled and rebuilt. There’s a lot done: every potentiometer, knob and jack-socket is deep cleaned, the PSU is re-capped, key-bed overhauled and a system-wide calibration carried out etc.

This particular machine runs 110V, but the synth will be supplied with a brand new step-down transformer if sold within the EU. Also, the MS20 sold with a full 3 month warranty.

Price: £1190 GBP.

Availability: This Korg MS20 is now SOLD as at 10th September 2013

Oberheim OB-8

We are Brokering this Oberheim OB-8 for, and on behalf of, a long standing UK customer.

Came into stock: Early April 2013

Restoration Status: Recently fully serviced (2012) but KSR to service once sold & prior to shipping to new owner.

Remarks: Cosmetically this particular OB8 is in immaculate condition (which is rare these days) and, being a late model, comes with the sought after Page 2 screen print on the front-panel & factory midi is also fitted. As its name suggests, this is a powerful 8 voice, Curtis based, polyphonic old-skool analogue synth, and once the staple of real men in real rock bands. We are not certain but it’s said that Justin Beieber does NOT own an OB-8.

This particular example was in fact very recently fully overhauled by KSR, so in 100% perfect operational condition, although we will have the synth serviced once again prior to shipping to its new owner, once sold.

Guide Price Post-Servicing: £3990 UK Pounds & sold with a 3 month warranty.

Availability: This OB-8 is now SOLD as at 12th November 2013.

Arp Odyssey Mk1

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

Came into stock: 1st August 2013

Restoration Status: Full project restoration being undertaken now with an ETA on completion of around October 2013.

Remarks: We were excited when we heard our customer wanted us to Broker his white-face Mk1 Odyssey as we haven’t seen one of these for a while.

This Odyssey is being completely stripped down and rebuilt from scratch. Due to it’s age and the usual cosmetic wear you see on these models, we are having the control surface cosmetically re-finished on the synth which includes re-spraying and re-screen printing etc. Once finished this instrument is going to look, and feel to play, like a brand new synth.

The (1972-74) Mk1 Odyssey is said to be the most sought after version of the Odyssey family of synths, certainly a very pretty machine. The Mk1 features the 4023 super smooth 2 pole filter which keeps the bass intact when the resonance is cranked right up – a cracking sounding synth! This Mk1 has also had the CV/Gate/Trig/Filter input modification implemented (along the back-plane of the synth) which is a very useful upgrade.

Although this is a Brokered sale, the synth is being fully restored pre-sale due to the time it takes to undertake these kinds of project restorations. The full cosmetic/operational restoration is being carried out now and will take a couple of months to complete but the synth can be reserved at any time.

This Mk1 Odyssey is sold with a 3 month warranty and runs on EU 220V.

Guide Price Post-Restoration: £3290 to £3390 GBP.

Availability: This Mk1 Odyssey is now SOLD as at 23rd December 2013.

Rhodes Chroma

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

Came into stock: 1st August 2013

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

Remarks: We’re are delighted, and honored, to be able to offer you another Rhodes Chroma from our current stock list. This particular example being customer owned, is in excellent and all original condition throughout.

Unlike our other Chroma for sale on th RL Music website, this customer owned machine does NOT have the CC+ CPU upgrade so is priced accordingly, but the restoration work we commit to in preparing these machines for sale remains the same regardless.

The key to restoring one of these fabulous instruments is finding a good quality example in the first place, and our customer machine qualifies beautifully. This superb example will be subjected to an extensive restorative overhaul, both cosmetically and operationally, to produce something similar to the library shot you can see below from a previous restoration we did. KSR, our synth restorers, will also fit a brand new 5 volt PSU to the system thus providing rock solid stability for the CPU and other critical functions of the Chroma system etc.

The Chroma is a very well loved and supported vintage model within the synth community. Chris Ryan has an excellent website dedicated to the model which has been a, excellent source of knowledge and support generally: rhodeschroma.com

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully restored 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 Rhodes Chroma is sold with a 3 month warranty and has been converted to operate on EU 220V.

Yamaha CS60

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

Came into stock: 22nd January 2014

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

Remarks: This beautiful vintage synthesizer is in pristine condition – all front panel surfaces, wood surround and tolex in excellent condition. This is a ‘home only’ used instrument, so kept and used in a gentle environment which is clearly reflected in the condition.

The CS60 is a 8 note polyphonic system with velocity, after-touch and a ribbon 
controller which offers the player a really organic feel into the performance of the instrument. Other key real-time control facilities, such as the LFO/ring-modulator section really make the CS60 a great players instrument – it’s all about the performance with the big CS polys. 

The resonant qualities of the Yamaha CS series filter are unmatched by any other polysynth so they sound unique.

The CS60 shares the same architecture of the CS80 (including memories) which is why it offers an excellent way to dial into the CS80 sound potential for a awful lot less money.

 This exceptional synthesizer will be fully serviced and calibrated by our tech, and Mr CS80 himself – Kent at KSR, prior to sale. This stunning CS60 will represent an excellent investment and an everyday useable machine for any musician looking for a unique sound

Runs on 110V but can be converted to EU 220V upon request.

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.

Korg PS3200

Came into stock: 28th February 2013

Restoration Status: KSR & other RL Music Service Partners now undertaking full restoration.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): Should be ready by August 2013

Remarks: It’s a real privilege to own this wonderful and rare 1970s vintage analogue Korg PS3200 polysynth, and we’re very happy to be able to offer such an amazing instrument for sale.

The PS3200 is a fully polyphonic, 16 memory semi-modular system incorporating divide-down technology driving 2 VCO’s and micro tuning ability. The technical specification aside, this instrument defines the word “ambient” and has the most wonderful warm, rich and charecterful sound that any vintage polysynth can deliver….a truly unique machine.

This PS3200 has very recently been extensively operationally overhauled so is in perfect working condition but KSR will fastidiously go over the whole machine for us as it’s being stripped down and rebuilt. Due to it’s age and wear, we are having the panels re-finished on this which includes re-spraing and re-screen printing etc. In addition, we are commissioning Lamond Design to build a new sold Walnut Cabinet (renewable resourced) for the synth and keyboard. This level of restoration is a significant investment in time and resources but for such a rare and historically important synth it’s worth the effort and expense. Once the restoration is complete this will without doubt be the best condition PS3200 in the world.

We have also purchased a brand new Kenton MIDI retrofit Kit for this PS3200 which will be fitted as part of the overall restoration work, so this instrument is sold with MIDI functionality.

The picture supplied below is from an earlier PS3200 we restored & sold, but we anticipate this next one to be as beautiful as this example.

Guide Price Post-Restoration: Guide price (post-restoration) will be £9390 UK pounds.

Availability: This Korg PS3200 is now SOLD as at 7th October 2013.

Remarks: RL Music is delighted to present for you this fantastic condition Pro-One from the classic Sequential Circuits family.

Roland SH101

Came into stock: Due at RL Music 19th July 2013

Restoration Status: KSR will undertake full restoration once in receipt of instrument on 19th July.

Remarks: The SH101 still rocks, looks very cool, sounds funky and fresh, takes up no room and is the ultimate portable vintage analogue synth & synth-axe.

Yamaha CS70M

Came into stock: Due at RL Music late June 2013

Restoration Status: KSR will undertake full restoration once in receipt of instrument from RL Music in early July.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): September 2013

Remarks: We’re excited to be able to get hold of this super condition CS70M as they really are quite magnificent synths for a whole number of reasons. These were proper old-school designed analogue systems made in the early 80s, and it wasn’t long after these came out that the DX7 was introduced, which seems hard to believe really.

The CS70M has for many people been overlooked, or perhaps overshadowed by it’s bigger brother – the CS80, but time is a funny thing and we think this synth is about to become highly sought after.

6 Voice, dual channel (stereo), aftertouch, 30 memories, ring-mod, fully programmable and with a 4 channel polyphonic sequencer…sweet!

Those in the know will already tell you that this is one of the finest analogue polys ever made, and a work of audio art in its own right. It shares much of the same technology at the CS80 and many of the characteristics and tonal qualities as well. The other big ‘Hello’ is also the fact you can get really close to the CS80 sound for a lot less money…this makes it even more appealing.

There are a few demos on YT of these but we like this rather ambient-noodling one from ‘MoreAnalog’ because it demonstrates nicely how the CS70M has the CS80 vibe we are talking about: “Yamaha CS70M – an amazing legend”

Guide Price Post-Restoration: £ – to be confirmed

Availability: This CS70M is now SOLD on deposit, as at 24th June 2013.

Arp Odyssey Mk3C

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

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music in mid-May 2013

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: If you are after the Arp Odyssey Sound, need MIDI but don’t need a keyboard then this customised Mk3 is the one for you.

This is actually a fantastic modification and we have never seen one done like this before. Our customer, the current owner, said he bought it like it is now but the work was clearly done by a professional in the past as the MIDI is full spec and the audio-out is by XLR only.

Made to look like an Arp 2600, this now desktop synth is a perfect musicians tool and the overall condition is very good, but cosmetically it’s got some wear. Having said that, this has been modified to work perfectly with a DAW or any MIDI keyboard, so it’s an every-day useable synth, and sounds perfectly like a MK3 Arp Odyssey.

Runs on EU 220V.

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.

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: A great value rack-mount vintage synth emulator, and this example comes with the Minimoog Filter Cartridge. This is an analogue synth by any standards but goes about the technology a different way using the external cartridges to supply the sound character.

A popular late 90s instrument and used a lot in Hip Hop for bass, and overall sound has a aggressive and dirty edge to it that sets it apart. The ATC-1 holds 512 memories and had MIDI plus CV/Gate control inputs and audio-in for some interesting processing effects etc.
