poly-61 price check?

Post by ShadowsWithin » Wed Dec 17, 2008 2:04 am

not sure if this is the right place or not but what does a Poly-61 go for?

theres one at my local music shop that looks to be in good condition for like $130 dollars, im wondering if it's worth it.

If it works I'd say it's a steal at $130. Those SSM filters are hard to beat IMO.

No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

With the way even the low-end analog polys are going up in price (on eBay at least), why not? If you don't like it, you'll at least make your money back if you decide to sell it.
