$900 is just only $50-100 under what they are currently going for used, so not exactly a steal. But yeah, shame on whoever sold it to them (probably for no more than like $500...) :shock:

Picked this up today from an ad on craigslist.

Got it really cheap because only one voice triggers right now. I'm hoping it's the delicate CMOS chips on the S&H board. Gonna re-cap it, too.

CS50 - good score. I got one on CL for $200 a few years ago and it actually all works except the filter on 1 voice. If you need any of the Yamaha chips I should have them.

Not exactly cheap, especially if you remember the dude with the much rarer SH-3 (not 3a)) that couldn't even sell it for like $350 a couple years ago.

On Craigslist Montreal:
nov. 8 - ARP 2600 Analog Synthesizer & 3620 keyboard AKA" The Orange Beast" - $2500 (Montreal)
Smelled fishy from miles away but I had to have a closer look, and received this for an answer:
Hello

The item is available and it is in perfect conditions like in the ad.I am a volunteer at Save Children Fundation in UK and I want to continue this transaction through a 3rd part Parcel Force delivery...I am in England and I have talked with the people from Parcel Force already.The item is at them ready for delivery and I paid for the taxes and fees already.I worked with them in the past and everything was fine.I posted in US also because I want to sell it fast(I need money).If you are interested please let me know for I can tell you the details.

Thank you
My reply:
LOL

As a general rule if it says "arp 2600 and 3620 matching keyboard" and is less than $3k, its a scam. Also they recycle the same pics over and again.

Yesterday about 10 vintage synths came up on the Ottawa craigslist for around half their market values. Googling each one found the ebay ad their description was ripped from.
