Prophet VS

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

Came into stock: Due here w/c18th January 2016

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

Remarks: The Prophet VS – a classic & ground breaking synth by any definition, and this VS is available for sale.

Vector Synthesis was revolutionary when the VS was introduced in 1986 and opened up a whole new way of modeling sound in real-time. Using four oscillators per voice with 127 waveforms (of which 32 could be user), this 8 voice synth changed everything. It’s dynamic waveform crossfading via the joystick is a fantastic feature and mono-aftertouch and velocity brought Sequential into the modern age – just a shame this was their last synth.

These historic synths are rare to find in good condition but remain very popular with great EM musicians like Ulrich Schnauss etc. The use of the Curtis chipset for the filter IC successfully pulls the digital and analogue together to make the VS very musical.

The mono-aftertouch system is fully working, although typical to these models, is primitive and lacks the more sophisticated control of system like the T8 and CS80 etc. although It can be accessed via MIDI as an alternative.

Our restorers, KSR, are experts at preparing these models, and this superb example is in really outstanding cosmetic and operational condition. It has been fully serviced by another reputable UK tech fairly recently, although the VS will go though a full and extensive servicing again by KSR to ensure it’s ready for the new owner.

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 Prophet VS is sold with a 3 month warranty and runs on either 110V or 220V.

Guide Price Post-Restoration: £2690 GBP.

Availability: This Prophet VS is no longer available (as at 15th July 2016), as the owner has withdrawn it from sale – sorry.

Library pictures supplied below of the last Prophet VS we sold, but high-res pictures of the actual synth will be organised and posted here shortly.

Oberheim Matrix 12

We are Brokering this Matrix 12 for and on their behalf of a UK client

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music in October 2015.

Restoration Status: KSR has already fully undertaken a full service of the synth during November.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): Available for sale now!

Remarks: These wonderful vintage synths are so hard to find these days in really fine condition, so when our client contacted us about selling theirs, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to be able to offer this.

The Oberheim Matrix 12 is a fully midi configured 12 voice Polysynth with keyboard velocity – an excellent addition to any analogue set-up and has to be heard to be believed. The M12 offers a deep programmable architecture for those of you into tweaking but can also be a very user friendly hands-on preset machine with quick access for live use. 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 1980’s.

Once you’re familiar with the comprehensive programming interface of the Matrix 12 you have one of the most powerful analogue systems ever made. The M12 was the last of the old Oberheim analogue synth technology, was beautifully designed and a powerhouse of thick analogue goodness that was tragically lost from just about every synth made after, when we all decided that the DX7 was the future!

This Matrix 12 operates on EU 220V & US 110V.

Guide Price Post-Restoration: £4500 UK Pounds

Availability: This Matrix 12 is now SOLD as at 2nd December 2015.

KSR very kindly sent us through some pictures of the actual Matrix 12 for sale after the servicing was completed (see below), but these are a little dark to see a lot of detail, so we will get some more high-res pictures done ourselves as soon as we collect the Matrix 12 from KSR – hopeful w/c 30th November.

Prophet 5 Rev 2

We are Brokering this very rare Prophet 5 Rev 2, for and on behalf of our UK client.

This Prophet 5 Rev 2 has been fitted with Kenton Midi, and it has been previously fully pro-restored by James Walker of Synth Repair Services (within the last 3 years).

As always, opinions circulate about the good, bad and differences between the Rev 2 and Rev 3 Prophets but the fact remains that the SSM based Rev 2 simply sounds (a lot) better. Its a significantly more rounded and fuller sound (trying to avoid the word fat you’ll notice) and the fabled SSM oscillators and filters work beautifully within this earlier Dave Smith designed synth.

The system architecture does differ quite significantly to the later versions, in particular with the abundant use of the SSM chipset throughout, but that’s the point of the Rev 2 and why its the most coveted model of all the Prophet lineage. Reliability is sometimes muted as a reason to avoid them, but regular use and good care is the key to longevity with any vintage analogue hybrid device and we have seen no less or more reliability with the Rev 3 platforms – and we have seen quite a few of both. However, we have a twist to the tail here with this example as it’s had a lot of attention paid to it to make it the best it can possibly be, so read on….

What helps this particular Rev 2 in the (no expense spared) attention by the owner to have the synth improved/upgraded, some details of what has been done as follows:

All capacitors have been replaced.
A brand new Power-Supply has been fitted
New trimmers for all VCOs fitted
New resistors for the Auto-Tune circuit fitted
New DAC installed
Lots of Logic chips replaced
Kenton MIDI installed
Cassette interface installed
Full key-bed overhaul & bushings replaced

In addition to the above, new Riku firmware has been installed – for more information on this extensive upgrade option please click the link:

http://www.analog.fi/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=11&Itemid=9

The new firmware has lots of excellent features, like unison modes, new 2nd LFO, auto-tune improvements, front panel always live etc. Perhaps the perfect Rev 2..!

So, this beautiful instrument has been meticulously maintained, and in regular (home) use since the current owner purchased it in from the USA in 2011. Prior to this, we have no history on the Prophet 5, but it’s fair to say that this example is probably the best we have ever seen, and we’re very excited to be able to Broker it for our client.

This Rev 2 Prophet 5 is in 100% original cosmetic condition, with the panels (paint & screen printing) in excellent condition. You can actually see this Prophet 5 Rev 2 featured on the Vintage Synth Explorer website covering the Prophet 5 as it was used as the photo example for their webpage (pre-restoration & before the current owner purchased it) – link below:

http://www.vintagesynth.com/sci/p5.php

We have already had our vintage synth restoration experts – KSR, fully service this Rev 2, so it’s ready for sale now.

This is a fantastic opportunity to buy (arguably) the ‘best Prophet 5 to have,’ and the price has been agreed with our client to keep it as competitive as possible, bearing in mind the large investment already made into this perfect example.

The Prophet 5 Rev 2 is sold with our full 3 month warranty, runs on EU 220V, and is supplied with a flight-case – although please note that we won’t ship it anywhere in a flight-case, so collection only if the flight-case is wanted.

Price: £5500 GBP.

Availability: This Prophet 5 Rev 2 is now SOLD as at 27th October 2015.

Roland Juno 60 VSE

Custom Roland Juno 60 – Very Special Edition (VSE)

Are you after the perfect Juno 60 – something very special?

We are delighted to announce that we have purchased another Juno 60 which has been custom finished to become one of our VSE Models – colour is white.

The RL Music ‘RESTORATION’ page on this website actually features the project restoration of these special Editions, and we have previously sold 18 Juno 60 VSE.

Came into stock: September 2015

Restoration Status: Customisation/Restoration work now underway.

Remarks: What’s a Juno 60 VSE?  Well, these customised versions have some very nice cosmetic restoration, and a complete operational refurbishment to produce a unique Juno 60.  Here are the highlights:

>Brand new solid Oak cabinets were hand made by Lamond Design.

>Panels are stripped and repainted, (black or white) – to RL Music specifications. The panels were then screen-printed using different graphic colours to complement the background finish.

>We supply & fit a new Minerva MIDI kits.

>KSR final assembly and fitting of MIDI kits PLUS full electronic overhaul and key-bed refurbishment, staining and hand finishing of wood cabinets and then 7 day soak-test.

>Total Custom Project Restoration time takes up to 10 weeks, involves 10 people in 8 different specialist businesses and cost over£1000 on each synth in restoration alone.

As you can see from the pictures, the results are fantastic – these instruments have been prepared to the very highest standard possible. The Minerva MIDI kits provide full SysEx control of the Juno and come pre-loaded with a full compliment of excellent patches.

Due to the amount of time & effort and funds invested into both these special examples they are sold with a full 6 months warranty, and the synth runs on EU voltage (220V).

Price Post-Restoration: £2450 UKP

Availability: This Juno 60 VSE is now SOLD as at 25th September 2015.

Roland Jupiter 8

We are Brokering this beautiful vintage synthesizer for and on behalf of our UK customer

Came into stock: 20th May 2015

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

Remarks: We’re delighted to be able to offer what we consider to be one of the finest analogue polysynths ever produced – the Roland Jupiter 8.

As many of you will know, we often need to subject these models to extensive operational and cosmetic restoration (costing over £2800 GBP) to bring them up to the highest possible standard, however, this actual JP8 had already gone through this process in 2009.

We call this ‘Total Restoration’ and the work produces an almost factory new-looking machine as all the metal the panels have been stripped and re-sprayed & screen-printed, and the aluminum end-cheeks re-anodised. All the electronics have been completely overhauled, key-bed refurbished and even a brand new new perspex display etc. This is the highest level restoration we can offer for these wonderful vintage synthesizers. RL Music has developed this highly specialised service for the Jupiter 8 as professionally prepared instruments of this standard are in such high demand from customers with high expectations of quality. You will not find any other business around the world offering anything close this level of restoration.

This Jupiter 8 has resided since it’s Total Restoration in the owners home, and has been kept covered when not used, so has been lovingly cared for. This is a very reluctant sale by the owner but they need to raise cash for a home purchase, otherwise it would have never come up for sale.

This Jupiter 8 is a 12 bit version and has been retro-fitted with a Kenton MIDI kit (by us).

The Jupiter 8 is 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, top level restored example that’s got to be a keeper!

Runs on EU 220V, and is supplied with a owners manual (PDF), factory patches loaded, and sold with a 3 month warranty.

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.

Price: £7500 GBP.

Elka Synthex Mk3

We are Brokering this Elka Synthex for and on their behalf of a UK customer

Came into stock: 25th March 2015

Restoration Status: KSR have recently undertaken a full service on this synth, so it’s ready for sale now.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): Available for sale now!

Remarks: This has to be the one of the finest analogue polysynths ever made and was used by all the top artists of the 80’s, especially JMJ. Built in 4 track sequencer 8 voice polyphonic, twin oscillator 24 dB/octave low pass filter 6 & 12 dB/octave band pass filters 12 dB/octave high pass filter. The specification doesn’t tell you that this is a silky smooth performer and in the right hands can deliver and almost polyphonic modular experience…just an amazing machine.

This particular example we are Brokering for our customer was purchased from new, so only one owner, and it has a very interesting history. This actual instrument was used on tour (by the owner) with many great bands, including; Vice Squad, Bad Company, Paul Jones from Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, David Coverdale from Whitesnake and Iron Maiden…to name but a few. The Synthex was very well cared for during it’s time on the road.

The cosmetic condition is good (as you can see from the pictures), although certainly not pristine, but the sales price reflects this. If you have been after owning one of these amazing vintage synths, looking for a really reliable example that works perfectly, looks good for its age and is keenly priced, then this is a great opportunity.

Our own vintage synth restorers – KSR, have very recently full serviced the synth, so it’s 100% perfect on the operational side, with all functions/control working smoothly and as you would expect.

Being a Mk3 version, this Synthex has factory fitted MIDI as standard.

This Synthex operates on EU 220V, and is supplied with the original user manuals, factory cassette and flight-case (as pictured). As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3 month warranty, and can be shipped world-wide. We will fully test and clean the Synthex prior to sending out to any buyer, and demo’s are available by appointment only.

Guide Price Post-Restoration: £6290 UK Pounds.

Availability: This Mk3 Elka Synthex is now SOLD as at 1st September 2015.

Rhodes Chroma CC+

Came into stock:  January 2015

Restoration Status: KSR have completed the full restoration on this Rhodes Chroma CC+

It could be said that the Rhodes Chroma is an instrument that sits very much ‘on the fence’ of Analogue and Digital tech. The famous designer of this instrument had a moment of genius, whilst at the same time was watching the company fold, but somehow the magic came right with a truly superb sounding vintage synth, and thank goodness!

The Chroma was the last synthesizer ever designed by  Phillip Dodd’s at Arp, just before Arp went into bankruptcy. There’s a sonic-soul to the synth that’s distinctly Arp in nature, and we alway’s felt the “Rhodes” banner confused the identity of this instrument somewhat, although without CBS/Fender, the Chroma would never have made ti to market or course.

This particular example came to us from a long-time customer in France, who is a Music professional/studio owner. The synth needed a full overhaul, which KSR have meticulously carried out, and additionally, treated all the cosmetics, like the wood cabinet and other surfaces, although this Chroma’s front-panel does show signs of wear. We have included 2 pictures that clearly show the discoloration and a small crack in the plastic control-surface panel – for full disclosure. This means we would rate this Chroma as an excellent overall condition studio synth, but not collector grade.

KSR, our vintage synth restorers, have gone through the entire system in great depth on the Chroma to ensure everything is 100% perfect operationally. They have also fitted a ancillary 5 volt PSU to the system thus providing rock solid stability for the CPU and other critical functions of the Chroma system etc., and removes the need to replace the original main-system PSU.

Additionally, we have also purchased/installed the superb CC+ CPU upgrade. thus bringing the Chroma right up to date in every aspect of the systems operation and MIDI functionality. This upgrade is not cheap but offers a very high quality upgrade path securing the synths place in a modern studio environment, plus the obvious future resale value being increased significantly.

Please click here to find out all about the CC+ CPU Upgrade

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

This Rhodes Chroma is sold with a 3 month warranty and operates on EU 220V. Supplied with the synth is the CC+ MIDI break-out-box.

Price: £5990 UK Pounds

Availability: This Rhodes Chroma CC+ is now SOLD as at 17th April 2015

OSCar w/MIDI

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

Came into stock: 5th December 2014

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

Remarks: We are delighted to offer this excellent condition, late model with factory fitted MIDI – OSCar Synthesizer.

This particular example has been very well cared for throughout its life, and we know that it has been regularly serviced by KSR and The SynthProf in the UK over the last few years, so it’s in top condition. This OSCar has been used in numerous video game soundtracks and sound design projects – all home studio based.

The serial number on this OSCar is 0821.

The OSCar is an incredible synth and offers a huge array of on-board facilities, with a unique and powerful sound. There are plenty of sources on the internet that wax lyrical about this great synth, but Paul Wiffen wrote an excellent review for SOS magazine back in 1999 that’s worth a read. The link to that article is here:

http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/sep99/articles/oscar.htm

The operational condition of this particular example is perfect, although we will service the synth again prior to handing over to the new owner. The cosmetic condition is also superb, so this can be considered a ‘collector-grade’ instrument.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced & deep cleaned 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 OSCar is sold through RL Music with a 3 month warranty, operates on EU 220V. Also, a high quality PDF copy of the user manual will be supplied with the synth.

Rhodes Chroma CC+

Restoration Status: This Rhodes Chroma CC+ is nearing completion from restoration at KSR, and should be completed in September 2014.

It could be said that the Rhodes Chroma is an instrument that sits very much ‘on the fence’ of Analogue and Digital tech. The designers of this system in many ways had moments of genius, whilst at other times suffered with complete madness, but somehow the magic came right to offer a truly superb sounding vintage synth.

The key to restoring one of these fabulous instruments is finding a good quality example in the first place, and that’s a real challenge these days. This superb example was brought in from our music-pro customer in France – we are subjecting it to an extensive restorative overhaul, both cosmetically and operationally. KSR, our synth restorers, also fitted 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.

We have also purchased and (KSR) fitted the amazing CC+ CPU upgrade thus bringing these vintage systems right up to date. This upgrade is not cheap but offers a very high quality upgrade path securing the synths place in a modern studio environment, plus the obvious future resale value being increased significantly.

Prophet 600 w/Teensy

We are delighted to offer this immaculate, pro-restored Prophet 600 for sale.

The Prophet 600 was the first commercially available synth to have MIDI as standard from the factory and this later version has 100 patch-memory. The sound is reminiscent of the Prophet 5, being Curtis Chipset based, but features 2 on-board sequencers and an arpeggiator which is really useful & something the P5 lacked.

In recent times there have been some truly excellent upgrade options coming to the market for the P600 and one that we really like is the GliGli-Teensy++. We have supplied and installed the Teensy++ into this P600 and the transformation has to be heard to be believed….it’s simply incredible. In our opinion, this P600 will now easily (sonically) match the Prophet 5, and the filter/resonance is so powerful that it’s now punching in a different synth league altogether.

For more information on what the Teensy++ upgrade now delivers through improved functionality, and enhanced sonic capability (getting a LOT more out of the Curtis Chipset) the please click the link to read the user manual (and install guide) here: http://sfx.gligli.free.fr/zik/p600/Prophet600FirmwareUpgrade_en_beta_1_0.pdf

The P600 is a really excellent way to dial into that classic Prophet sound but much more affordable than it’s bigger brothers (P5,P10 & T8 etc). It has that wonderful vintage analogue warmth and can can kick out some powerful/edgy leads and effects…a great all-rounder but with character & vintage appeal.

A good demo here by Thomas Faurby of purely the P600, and although this is a stock sounding synth, still very nice indeed: YouTube Preview Image

Our P600 has only just been fully professionally restored by KSR so is in 100% operational condition.

Cosmetically it’s in excellent condition and clearly has never been gigged. The synth was purchased from a UK owner and is a very nice example & plays beautifully. The only item of note is that the original end-cheeks had been replaced with some horrible MDF items in the synths past, so we had ‘Lamond Design’ manufacture some beautiful solid Oak replacements, which KSR hand stained and wax finished and look beautiful.

This example is sold with a full 3 months warranty and runs on US 110V and EU 220V.

Price: £1390 GBP.

Availability: This Prophet 600 is now SOLD as at 26th June 2014.

Oberheim Matrix 12

Restoration Status: This Matrix 12 has been fully pro-restored by KSR.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): Ready for sale now (February 2014).

Remarks: We have been fortunate to source another pristine condition Matrix 12 which we are very pleased to present for re-sale.

This example is a USA manufactured model.

Once you’re familiar with the (not all that complicated) interface of the Matrix 12 you have one of the most powerful analogue systems ever made. The M12 was the last of the old Oberheim analogue synth technology, was beautifully designed and a powerhouse of thick analogue goodness that was tragically lost from just about every synth made after, when we all decided that the DX7 was the future!

The restoration work included a full system overhaul, PSU rebuild, calibration/testing and the case and all sockets/switches will been thoroughly cleaned etc. Keyboard assembly deep-cleaned with new bushings fitted and the wood re-finished so she looks and works like new.

This Matrix 12 operates on EU 220V & US 110V.

Remarks: The demand for high-quality examples of the world most famous drum machine continues to grow, and MIDI fitted units are highly sought after.

We’re very happy to be able to offer this excellent condition TR808, which has been retro-fitted with a Kenton MIDI kit. The cosmetic condition of this example is at the highest level we have seen. Clearly, this drum machine has been very well cared for with home use only in its 30+ year life.

Servicing Status: KSR undertaking full servicing now so should be ready in April.

Remarks: We have been fortunate to purchase this excellent condition JP6 from a UK owner who had owned it since 1985, only ever having used it at home.

Moog Voyager XL

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

Came into stock:  2nd April 2014

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

When Moog Music produced the Voyager XL they set out to offer the finest contemporary analogue hybrid synth in the world. They achieved something quite beautiful and it’s hard not to want to own by just looking at it..wow!

The Voyager is a great sounding synth and distinctly ‘modern Moog’ in sonic character, and a worthy evolution of the original vintage Minimoog in many ways, offering truly fantastic value for the money.

This monster synth is brimming FULL of enough features and functionality to satisfy any synth fan, and thoughtfully adorned with excellent performance control options to make this a fantastic centre-stage studio CV/Gate/MIDI controller.

This Voyager XL was purchased second-hand last year by it’s current owner and has sat unused in his studio, so he decided to let it go to someone who will make good use of it – as it deserves. The Moog is in excellent condition throughout, as you would expect from an synth only 2 years old.

Running OS version 3.6. It does not come with its original box or user manual, although the manual can be downloaded direct from Moog here:

http://www.moogmusic.com/sites/default/files/voyager_xl_manual.pdf

This can operate over 110V and 220V – it will be sold with a 3 month warranty.

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.

Roland Jupiter 6

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

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. 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.

Price: £2950 GBP.
