Moog Vocoder

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

Came into stock: Available at RL Music from 18th March 2019.

Servicing Status: A full service by KSR will be carried out post-sale.

Remarks: An stunning condition example of one of the worlds finest professional grade vintage analogue vocoders – the Moog 16 Channel Vocoder.

This pure analogue 16 channel vocoder has always been considered one of very best and sounds amazing – this is an extremely rare instrument to find up for sale in 2018. The Moog Vocoder was co-designed between Bob Moog and Harold Bode and launched in 1979. The Moog uses a very similar architecture to the Bode 7702 Vocoder, and that’s a very good thing. Moog and Bode collaborated on a number of technologies prior to the release of the Vocoder, one of these being the Frequency Shifter.

Our client has owned this Moog Vocoder for over 10 years and it has been in regular use and serviced regularly during their ownership. Cosmetically, this 39-year-old vintage analogue vocoder is in truly fantastic condition and we would rate this as a Collector Grade – 9.5 out of 10. The main control surface is in remarkable condition with all the controls intact and the housing is in super condition throughout, with just some light wear as you would expect for a device this age.

This Moog 16 Channel Vocoder. operates on EU 220V. We do have a user manual (in PDF format) for the BODE 7702 Vocoder, which the Moog is similarly based on. As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month warranty and can be shipped worldwide.

Demos are available by appointment only.

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 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: £7,800 GBP.

Availability: This Moog 16 Channel Vocoder is now SOLD, as at 7th May 2019.

Korg VC-10

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

Came into stock: Available from RL Music as at 13th June 2018.

Servicing Status: A full service by KSR has already been carried out (June 2018), so the VC-10 is available for sale now.

Remarks: A good condition example of the wonderful vintage Korg VC-10 Vocoder. This unique and super little 20-band vocoder was made between 1978 and 1982 and followed the ‘MS Series’ design ethos.

This is very simple but characteristic machine, and the built-in keyboard makes it easy to use as an effects processor as well as a more traditional human voice synthesizer.



The Original gooseneck mic is, unfortunately, missing (common) but the original Korg mics that came with the unit were not of audiophile quality anyway, so you can use an unbalanced 1/4 jack input on the front panel. RL Music is able to fit a new XLR socket to replace the original proprietary 3 pin Korg mic socket, so please contact us for a quote to have this implemented if needed.


Here’s nice demo from Junkie XL who talks about this own VC010 – he’s clearly a big fan of this super little vocoder:

This VC-10 was owned by our clients family since 1994 and it had been in constant use and maintained regularly during their ownership at their home studio, up until quite recently.

Cosmetically, this 37+ year-old vintage analogue vocoder is in good original condition and shows the normal amount of wear for an instrument of this age, and has been priced to reflect this. As mentioned above, KSR has only just fully serviced the VC-10, so it’s 100% perfect operationally.

This Korg VC-10 operates on EU 220V. We do have a user manual (in PDF format). As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month warranty and we can ship worldwide.

Demos are available by appointment only.

Price: £840 GBP.

Availability: This Korg VC-10 is available for sale now.

Roland VP330 Plus

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

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music on 17th May 2018.

Servicing Status: A full assessment was by KSR carried out on 11th May – a full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: An immaculate condition example of the final production version of the iconic Roland VP330 Vocoder PLus.

The VP330 was always loved for the rich analogue strings and alone make this instrument worth having, but the vocoder section with the external mic & synth inputs, can deliver some very exciting voicing effects and timbres & triggering etc. The VP330 has been used by Vangelis (Blade Runner) to William Orbit and many contemporary artists, so it has a long and distinguished history of use.

Our client has owned this VP330 Vocoder PLus since 1987 and it has been in regular use, and serviced regularly, during their 31 years of ownership. Cosmetically, this 35+ year-old vintage Roland is in truly fantastic condition and we would rate this as a Collector Grade – 9.5 out of 10. The main control surfaces are all still looking fresh, with and all the controls intact. The faux wood cabinet is in excellent condition also.

Our own vintage synth restorers – KSR, have very recently fully health-checked the synth as part of the pre-Brokering assessment, so we’re happy it’s fully operational, with all functions/control working smoothly and as you would expect, but the VP330 Plus will be fully serviced post-sale.

This VP330 Vocoder PLus operates on EU 220V and is supplied with the user manuals in PDF format. As the instrument is being Brokered through RL Music, it will be sold with a full 3-month warranty and can be shipped worldwide.

Demos are available by appointment only.

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 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.
