I'm insulted that my odyssey is not on the poll either.

Mine is a black and orange, but I put one of those 4035 filters in it. Gave it a totally different personallity in the bass register, like it grew a set of balls. :lol:

That's an old photo of my workbench. Found most of those ARPs on Ebay back around 2000~2004. Back then a broken ARP did not get much attention or high prices. The Axxe was $75.00 and both the Avatars were around $250. The Oddy was $350 and had keys that looked like boxers teeth. I was able to fix all of them except the $20 Omni-2. All repairs were mostly broken slider shaft and contact cleaning.
Interesting that two of those black/orange series had wood sides. They both had an ARP green tie-tack type emblem on them. The Axxe has thin wood sides and also one of the Avatars. Looks a little nicer than those leather sides most had. Guessing these were early black/orange models?

I get my 2810 in the mail tomorrow! Time to find out if the low serial number of 129 still has the old 2 pole in it. I don't really care which one it is though. I know the "moog" filter one is the rare, hot one, but I don't need something with another moog filter. I'm just happy for some CV ins and outs! It will be way better than my omni!!!

I also used to have an avatar but it was insanely expensive to control it because I had all I had was a monopoly with CV and keys! (see arp avatar awesomeness on utube) It was definitely awesome, but too expensive to keep them both.
