Considering an Oberheim Xpander

Postby Naive Teen Idol » Mon Jun 03, 2013 4:19 am

So, after reading through this board and a bunch of Gearslutz threads, I'm contemplating whether I should buy an Oberheim Xpander. I love its sound -- and from a control point, it almost seems a bit like a Polyevolver in terms of its modulation flexibility. Plus, I am totally seduced by Steve Roach's comment that it was the "pinnacle of the digitally-controlled analog instrument."

eBay has these priced at $2,700-3,100 almost invariably. Is this highway robbery or the going rate?
