Oberheim Xpander

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

Coming into stock: Came into stock in May 2024.

Servicing Status: KSR have carried out a service on this Xpander in May 2024.

Remarks: Much has been written on these incredible synthesizers and it’s understandable when you use them as they really can deliver a thick analogue wall of sound, and are perfect pad and brass sources just for starters.

The Xpander lineage includes the Matrix 6 and 12 and is a fully midi configured, 6 voice Polysynth – an excellent addition to any analogue set-up and has to be heard to be believed. he Xpander offers a deep programmable architecture for those of you into tweaking but can also be a very user-friendly hands-on preset machine.  This means they sit between that digital and analogue medium perfectly and are arguably the best of the hybrid technology of the early to mid-1980s.

About This Xpander:

This example is a USA built unit that works perfectly, and as mentioned above, has just been fully serviced by KSR.  The cosmetic condition is all original and absolutely first class, excellent, as you can see from the pictures below, with barely any perceptible marks or signs of use, which is quite remarkable for a 40+ year old music instrument.

The owner purchased a Star Dust cover for it a few years ago and it is supplied with the synth on-sale.  The cover is well used and has done a fantastic job protecting the instrument.

We are Brokering this Xpander for a private owner whom imported from the USA in 2016. It has only ever been used in a home studio environment since. 

The Xpander runs on US115~230V (switchable), is supplied with an IEC cable with UK-plug fitted and photocopy of the June 1984 user manual by Daniel Soferan. In addition, an original factory presets cassette is also supplied.

Packing & Shipping: 

We can ship this Xpander worldwide, although the packing, shipping & insurance costs are not included in the sale price below, so they are subject to quotation.  The synth is located with us in Reading, so you are welcome to collect it from us if you prefer.

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 about the logistics and/or need a quote.
