Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Ok I thought I'd post an update, I found an ESQ-1 for $100 including factory foot pedal, manual, and cartridge. It's still in the US with a friend of mine, but I should have it in a couple weeks or so. My friend said when the guy sold it to him it was like he was selling a family member. He was the ...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Yeah when I saw it at that price I nearly.. Uhhh nevermind :oops: Even with the shipping cost to get it up here it is still a freaking wicked deal. Unfortunately I do believe it is sold, I emailed several days ago and no word back. (For that price I'm sure it got nabbed right away). In the meantime ...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Thanks for the additional input, I never did put an offer in on the Juno-106. I'd rather that the fellow gave me an idea of what he wanted rather than hope my offer would be really high. Not that I instantly doubt the integrity of people in general.... It's just the way the emails came across, :^o a...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Ok, I have heard back from the fellow selling the Juno-106. He prefers to make a trade, but if I would like I can make him an offer. I was hoping he would state a price but no go. So now I have YET another question to ask. I know the 106's have the chip issue, however here is a link to the ad to see...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Hi Sacredcow, and anyone else still reading this, I just did my usual check all the ads daily routine, and a Juno-106 popped up local. The guy/gal is looking for trades so I am not sure if they will take cash (Then again, not many people would turn down cash)! Because they are looking at trades they...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Thanks again guys, Hi Yoozer, thanks for the info on the EA-1 VS. the SH-201! The reason $250 seemed like a good deal is because in Canada it is very hard to find them, even on ebay in the US they seem to be scarce. $250 Canadian = about $146 Euros, which is higher than what you guys can get them fo...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Thanks killedaway, I was worried to ask questions as I do see a lot of people ask then never come back to the forums they post on or say thanks. I also don't want to be seen as a lazy, annoying git. Thanks for letting me know that you do enjoy helping out newbies. Johnny, $350 is way too much I now ...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Thanks Joey and killedaway, I emailed the two sellers, I found an ES-1 for $200 Canadian so I'll wait to hear back. As for the EA-1, there are none on Ebay so if this guy has sold it I will have to keep looking or go for the above other plan of something like an SH-201 with an ES-1 (Lot's on Ebay if...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Dang this is a great forum!!! Thanks again for clarifying, the Blofeld does look daunting, the price was just too good. Sales happen more than once though. I found an Electribe EA-1 for $250 obo, and the same seller has an ER-1 for $250 obo. I also found an ES-1 for $350 (All prices in Canadian doll...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Opps, it looks like you posted your message killedaway while I was writing mine up. Poop, now I'm not sure which way to go on this. Your info makes very good sense and you posted a lot of your experience and what a very new to synths person should do to avoid frustration. Yet I am unsure if I should...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Thanks for the additional replies guys (gals)? I really appreciate everyone's feedback on this. I was worried about posting questions but it turned out it was the best thing to do. In the end I think I will be wanting to make all my own sounds (Once I learn how) so I better stay away from a rompler ...

Re: Questions on first synth, research done but still have Q's

Thanks for the replies pflosi and otto, Drats, I guess romplers really are that bad!, the biggest problem is there seems to be a huge lack of selection here in town. Most of what you can get is Korg, Roland and Yamaha. There are some other units such as the Nord's, Kurzweil's, Moog's, and Novation. ...

If anyone could please read my rundown below and possibly help me not make a huge mistake on my first purchase I would be very grateful. Here goes: Equipment owned: Really ol...
