A coupla interesting items for your perusal, each in very good
shape but with minor problems (and corresponding low prices).

Lemme know!

Very clean.


100%, except that these four buttons do not
work in Manual Mode (they ∗do∗ work when the Jupiter
is set to one of its preset patches, thus the base
functionality is there):

Arpeggio Down (Up works fine)
Split 4-2 (Split 2-4 works fine)

Perfectly playable as-is. Or invest a little time/money
and get the buttons fixed.

I figure the board is worth $750 if the four buttons were
fixed. So I'm asking $600 as-is.


OBERHEIM OBX-A (120-program, 8-voice model)


Very clean.


Excellent, except:

1 of the 8 voices is "stuck" in a full-open filter
setting. Translation: It sounds ∗sharper∗ than the other
7 voices. To get around this, I simply turned it off
(dip switches inside case); you still have 7 voices to
play with (which means 7-voice chords).

The Frequency Modulation module of LFO2 ist kaputt. (All
the other LFO2 modules are fine.) Fortunately, the Obie
is a two-LFO board, and LFO1 is fully functional. So if
you want FM on one or both VCOs, you can still get it.

The patch 5 button works perfectly, but the bulb is broken.

Again, perfectly playable as-is. Or fix 'er up.

I figure the board is worth $850 if the above problems weren't
there. So I'm asking $700 as-is.
