Prophet 5 Rev 3.3

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

Came into stock: 10th May 2014

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

Remarks: We are delighted to offer this good condition Prophet 5 Rev 3.3 that was fully pro-restored in August 2013 but an respected UK synth tech we know well.

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.

Did you know that the Prophet 5 can be set up to operate in different temperaments from equal-temprement. 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 has the upgraded memory to hold 120 programs, but does not have the factory MIDI fitted. We are able to supply and fit a Kenton MIDI kit if required although this upgrade cost option is not reflected in the sales price below – please email us for a quote.

The operational condition is excellent, although we will service the synth again prior to handing over to the new owner. The cosmetic condition is good, but there are a couple of blemishes that we have identified in one of high-res pictures below. These blemishes mean the synth cannot be sold as a pristine example, so this is not a collector-grade instrument, but probably more a everyday musicians synth, thats works flawlessly. The Prophet 5 has been priced to reflect it’s overall condition.

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 photo copy of the user manual in a binder, and the cassette (copy) of factory preset files are supplied with the synth.

Price Post-Servicing: £3600 GBP.

Availability: This Prophet 5 is now SOLD as at 29th June 2014.

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.

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.

Remarks: A nice condition of the mid version (Mk2) Elka Synthex – with the factory MIDI option delivered through break-out-MIDI cables (supplied)

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.

MOOG MEMORYMOOG

Came into stock: Due late-February 2014

Restoration Status: Full restoration will commence by KSR early March 2014.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): Should be ready by late March or early April 2014.

This example is in superb condition, 100% original and an un-modified standard version, so no MIDI but a prime candidate for the LAMM upgradeor MIDI socket-upgrade from Kenton if so wished.

Memorymoogs have to be in the top 5 list of machines for any serious analogue fan and among the most individual sounding (monster) polysynths ever made. These instruments have become very hard to find in the last 5 years or so in anything like decent condition and demand, as with so many of the truly iconic synths from this period, has increased significantly leaving a big hole in the market for top quality examples.

Our vintage synth restorers, KSR, have considerable experience in restoring Memorymoogs – which is more of an art form than an engineering function, and as such, each synth gets around 20+ hours of meticulous & skilled work invested into them just on the electronic side then the aluminum case is deep cleaned and the wood cabinet hand-finished (stripped, stained and waxed) to reveal the beautiful wood character to it full.

Once fully restored by us these instruments are reliable, stable and everyday usable in a professional/production environment or the home enthusiast studio for many years to come.

Considering the beautiful condition and extreme care taken in the restoration work we are invest into it, we are confident that this Memorymoog will be a huge asset to any musician wanting a truly iconic synth to hold on to for many years. This is a fully working synth (tunes 6 voiced every time), is stable, sounds epic and can be used everyday!

This example is sold with a full 3 months warranty, owners manual (on PDF only) and runs EU 220V voltage. MIDI can be fitted at an additional cost – please enquire for more details.

Price = £5500 GBP

Availability: – This Memorymoog is now SOLD as at 30th April 2014.

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!

Roland TR909

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

Came into stock: September 2013

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

Remarks: The TR909 is simply a classic sounding analogue drum machine and used by a huge array of top artists with thousands of reviews, mp3s and videos on on-line so we’re not going to tell you anything new here.

Most professional musicians we know have at least 2 or even 3 of these machines and they usually get very heavy studio and live use which is a testament to the rugged, stable and reliable design from Roland in the mid 80s.

This example come from a private collection and is in excellent condition.

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.

Memorymoog LAMM

The Memorymoog is an outstanding analogue polysynth that is unique and unrivalled in sheer power and character. Moog did the best they could with the technology of the day, but Lintronics developed this amazing system further to become the world renown Lintronics Advanced Memorymoog (LAMM).

More info on the Lintronics LAMM implementation can be found by clicking this link: http://www.lintronics.de/lamm.html

Not very often we get the chance to get hold of a LAMM but we managed to source this amazing vintage synth from a musician who has gone 100% VSTi…! Well, our gain for sure, and having a Memorymoog in stock alone would be treat enough but the Lintronics versions are highly coveted. The LAMM upgrade charges are near the cost of the donor machine these days, plus the waiting time to have it done, so here’s a great opportunity to get yours. The LAMM upgrade on this particular model was carried out by Bob Moog’s team (Big Briar) in the USA during the 1990s – we have documented evidence of this.

This LAMM is also a very special as it has gone through our unique ‘Total Restoration’ process that has involved every possible aspect of the synths cosmetic and operational integrity, and taken over 6 months to complete. We have had all the control surfaces re-finished, new scratch-resistance stickers made and a brand new Walnut cabinet made for it by Lamond Design. We are certain that you will never find a more perfect and beautifully prepared Memorymoog in the world. The restoration costs invested into this LAMM have been in excess of £3000 GBP alone, and this does not include the LAMM upgrade costs, which are considerably more than that figure, on top.

So, if you are after a cosmetically perfect, full LAMM spec Memorymoog that is operationally restored to the highest possible level achievable, is totally reliable and feels beautiful to play then we present the worlds finest example for sale.

Supplied with original LAMM User manual. Runs EU 220V and sold with a 6 month warranty.

Guide Price: £10300 UK Pounds

Availability: This ultra-high level restored LAMM Memorymoog is now SOLD as at 28th September 2013.

Akai MPC3000

Not our usual offering here at RL Music but we accepted this classic sequencer-sampler as a part-exchange deal and thought it would be something different to offer our customers.

The MPC3000 is a true pro-audio grade instrument and has been adopted by HipHop, Rap, R&B artists as their studio production weapon of choice. It has 16-bit stereo 44.1Khz sampling and a very sophisticated sequencer which offers 20 Songs, 99 sequences, 99 tracks, and up to 75,000 notes. It has extensive high-spec MIDI implementation as well, so fits in perfectly into a modern DAW environment.

This machine is running OS 3.11 and has the full compliment of 32MB RAM installed. This unit also comes with a ‘classic drum machines’ library on 10 floppy disks.

KSR has just gone over the Akai and given it a full service, which was mostly just cleaning of pots, switches and slider etc. The operational condition of this MPC3000 is perfect, with the overall cosmetic condition as very good, as you can see from the pictures.

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 MPC3000 is sold with a full 3 month warranty.

Price: £590 GBP.

Memorymoog w/MIDI

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 restoration by KSR was completed on 1st August 2013.

Remarks: We present the rare and titanic Memorymoog (standard Mk1 version) with a Kenton MIDI retrofit, in excellent cosmetic condition and recently fully pro-restored to top operational condition.

Memorymoogs have to be in the top 5 list of machines for any serious analogue fan and among the most individual sounding (monster) polysynths ever made. These instruments have become very hard to find in good condition, and demand for many of the truly awesome vintage synths has increased significantly leaving a big hole in the market for top quality examples.

This particular example is one of the best condition examples we have ever seen and is in ‘like new’ condition internally, which from experience, is a very good sign of reliability. Overall the cosmetic presentation is fantastic and it tunes perfectly from cold, even before KSR started the restoration work. This is by any definition a keeper!

Runs on EU 220V.

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.

Roland SH2000

Remarks: For the synth player who just doesn’t have the time to program and wants some simple & funky synthy sounds straight to hand.

That might sound a strange thing to say but we sold a Pro-One to a customer recently who then sold it on within a few weeks to buy one of these. It’s horses for courses as they say, but the SH2000 is a pretty cool vintage analogue synth with a lot of character..enough so that the ‘Human League’ used one!

The Roland SH2000 has just been fully overhauled/serviced by KSR so is in 100% perfect operational condition, and is sold with our normal 3 month warranty.

This synth runs on EU 220V and has a UK plug fitted.

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.

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.
