You missed it!


Superb example of an original white-face ARP Odyssey in excellent working order. This is the Mk1 with the 4023 filter installed. These old synths require a great deal of specialist TLC to get them up to scratch. After the close attention of our engineers this one now plays very well and sounds stunning.

It has had an extensive service with new bushings, key contacts and sliders/switches cleaned and the power supply re-capped. The synth has been re-calibrated and is sounding superb.

Now reissued by Korg, this is a chance to buy an iconic original in excellent order. Effectively a hard-wired compact version of the monster ARP 2800, the Odyssey is revered for its signature sweeps, leads and bass sounds – like an albino time machine, it transports you back to the golden age of analogue synthesis.

Condition is excellent with a few scratches and scuffs to the case, most of which are on the back of the unit.  There is some paint damage from the bolts on the underside of the face but nothing too noticeable, there is a photo displaying these minor flaws. The black plastic side panels have been cut down at the back to make them flush with the back of the unit (possibly to make it fit somewhere in the past). This work has not been done professionally and is rough around the edges as shown in the photos. Click on the photos to zoom in and see more detail.
