Siel DK600 Korg Poly-61

Post by Dogpupkus » Sun Nov 15, 2009 6:29 pm

I'm kinda hoping for a quick reply to this one, since the seller is only available until 4PM today, and after today he moves to AZ.

The DK-600 seems to be a lost case, but for $50, maybe its worth it.

I know the Poly-61 probably just needs a new rubber contact strip, and it would be good to go... but I also know those things are hard to find anymore. These things are going for cheap now anyway, $120-150.

Maybe its worth it to just wait and get a new one.

I'll probably just pick up the Poly-61.
If anyone wants a finicky DK-600, let me know and I can scoop that up too.

What do you guys think?

PM'd on siel. I know those things are notoriously tempermental/c**p build quality but I've been having fun bringing stuff back to life lately so I wouldn't mind giving it a go.

On the poly 61: You might be able to put something on the rubber like felt or something as a shim. Alternately if it is literally just a rubber strip you could probably buy some rubber sheet and cut to size.
