I have an Oberheim ob-8 with midi.
I have owned it for 15 years and only used it for studio based film & tv music.
Needs a new battery and I may have to reload the sounds but in very good condition.
Does anyone know what it is worth and how much I should ask on ebay?
I live in the uk.
Thanks

I searched completed listings on eBay... looks like a few have sold for between $1,800 - $2,500. not sure what that is in euros. of course i'd recommend replacing the battery and making sure everything is in proper working order before listing.

It's Pound Sterling in the UK.

Plus, vintage synths seem to sell for mover on the other side of the pond. Usually about 20% more than what they sell for here in the States.

It's definately worth it's weight in gold.

Also, get that battery replaced. Nothing is less tempting than a synth ad that says "Battery needs replacement but it's easy". Then do it before selling it, if it's so easy :)
