Re: New: Nord Electro 3

Well....this is really cool. Clavia continues to impress. FYI, I have been using an original Nord Electro (upgraded to a "2") as my main axe for over 5 years now. It has never failed me, and has been through countless gigs, smoke-filled bars, etc., and is still going strong. I have owned literally d...

Hmmm.....now you've got me thinking. Yes, a red knob might look cool! Thanks!

So it would match my Nord gear onstage, actually.

But, now that it's got both red and green, I suppose it has sort of a Christmas theme, huh? :lol:

My "Customized" MicroKORG

Certainly not a radical customization, but I made new side panels for my MicroKORG.....I made them out of poplar, and painted them with at least 8 coats of red lacquer. Much thicker than the original thin wood side panels, too. Now it (sort of) matches my Nord Electro & Nord Lead on stage! :) http:/...

Re: My "New" Toy Is Here! =)

BTW, according to my buddy Paul at SynthTech (former Curtis CEM chip source), the CEM chips in the JX-3P (CEM3340's, 3360's, and 3372's) if pulled out and sold separately are worth more than $1,000! Good deal considering the current prices of JX-3P's, but seems like a shame to trash a classic like t...

Re: My "New" Toy Is Here! =)

Aww... man, now I want one.. I have a JX-3P with PG-200 that I am preparing to sell if anyone is interested. It has a few dead keys, but I will be fixing those in the next day or two if I can spare the time to do so....been selling a lot of gear lately and this one has been at the bottom of the pil...

Was this song on her debut album? I believe it was....and I understand that the JX3P was used on that album pretty extensively for songs like "Burning Up", etc. Not sure about the 60, though.

I had posted a thread several months ago on this, and the general consensus was that this was a Minimoog.

Nord Lead 3 opinions ?

Years ago, I played a Nord Lead 3 at a local Guitar Center, and recall being VERY impressed at the time. However, I have commonly heard that they "sound thin" when compared to the Nord Lead 2x. And, there must be some good reason why they were discontinued by Clavia in favor of the 2X. I have owned ...

Re: If You Could Have Just One Vintage Synth...

For me, that's easy........Minimoog. For either of your scenarios.
And yes, you can make an entire album with just a Minimoog.

www.synthtech.com go to the ORDER tab at the top of the page, you can also try Vintage Planet and there are others depending on what you are after. My friend Paul who owns SynthTech told me last week that he is pretty much "out of the Curtis Chip business" now, so I don't think you'll have any luck...
