Vintage Synth Repair - Sydney

Postby Futureman » Thu Jan 31, 2013 8:41 pm

Hey all,

Lately, I've been gradually building up my resumé of fixing vintage synths , drum machines, Pedals and outboard.

I'm now expanding this from my own gear & friends to include other people.

This goes from a mild tune up / calibration to a full restoration to something like replacing the key bushings in your vintage Moog.

I prefer working on vintage equipment (1971 - 1986) but let me know if you have anything modern that needs attention.

PM me if you have any questions.

(Sorry, but I'm not experienced in Valves / Guitars / Guitar Amps)

My Recent work consisted of,

Sequential Prophet 5 Rev2 - Full restoration - Many issues
Korg PolySix - Rebuilt new KLM 367 board
Korg Poly61 - Full restoration - Replaced all tact switches - repaired corroded board - Installed MIDI kit
Korg PolySix - Installed MIDI Kit
Roland D50 - Repair
Arp Quadra - Full restoration - Many Faults & Issues.
Moog MicroMoog - repair - Many Issues
Arp Omni - Full restoration
Oberheim DMX - Repaired - Installed MIDI kit
Sequential Pro1 - Installed MIDI Kit
Arp Odyssey - Repaired
Arp Odyssey #2 - Fixed dead S&H circuit - Replaced some faders.
Emu Emulator II - Repaired.
Emu Emulator I - Repaired.
Roland Juno60 - Installation of Midi kit.
Roland CR-5000 - Racking & powering of voice board + installation of Midi.

Eventide 910 - Repair
Lexicon Prime Time - Repair
Lexicon Prime Time #2 - Repair
MXR Pitch Transposer - Repair
EHX Guitar Synthesiser Rack - Repair

I'm happy to have a look at it.. It should be easier to fix yours with a working one next to it.

Is this offer still a possibility?
We have a few vintage synths that need reviving at some point soon. Top of the list is a Mini Korg 700s let me know if you may have time to do so. It would be greatly appreciated :)
