Have an OB-8 in excellent condition, Rev B5 (last) with factory midi. Would trade for a similar condition SCI Prophet 5 Rev 3.3 with someone who is looking to make the same kind of trade. I have other gear too that could be factored in if need be.
I like vintage synths....

got a roland MSQ 700 sequencer with DCB, might be useful for some of you with synths with that interface...

anyone wanna trade it for maybe some guitar pedals, effects units, MIDI faderbox, shitty eurorack modules? I dunno, make me an offer :D

i'd espcially like a
electro harmonix frequency analyzer
eurorack VCO

these might be worth a bit bit to much, but maybe $$ as well... so yeah make an offer

i live in sydney btw

I have a Korg M500 SP with not working synth 1 and 2 presets otherwise in super mint condition for trade, CZ-101 in great condition, Waldorf Pulse in good condition.

Looking for Lexicon Jamman, but will consider other offers as well, like wind controllers (AKAI only) or Yamaha TX802

I am in Europe but I'll ship my stuff on my cost overseas if need be.
I can trade multiple items for one, I can add cash as well to some trade that interests me.
Will ship first to people I see often in the forum!
Thanks for your time.

I’ve got too much stuff again!
I’ve got a few items for possible trade.

Roland JX-3P – Works and looks good except the pitch bender isn’t working. I think I know what I need to replace to fix it, I just need to get around toremoving and ordering a part. Too much other stuff going on. If motivated I’ll fix or I can deduct some value and you can fix or use without pitch bend. Synth works fine with midi or PG-200.

Jen SX-1000 – Lovely simple mono with a great sound. I’d keep this except this was to be my “unique mono”. I happened upon a more unique mono that is on its way. I also have a bunch of the patch overlays.

Sequential Six-Trak – It’s very unique, you can see my thread on it in “buyers guide”. The reason it is up for trade is that the sound, envelope speeds, etc. are too much of an overlap of my Prophet 600. I wish I could stack the individual patches of the Prophet 600 like the Six-Track but ultimately I want each synth I own to be dissimilar in sound, not a big fan of overlap. You can see this one in the studip pictures thread, it’s in good shape physically and functionally. Will include printed manual that you should read ot get the best out of it.

I also have a couple other odds and ends and interesting gear to trade for the right stuff. Might be willing to do DIY work in trade but I have a project I will need to complete first.

Right now I’m looking for :
Korg KR-55 or 55b
Roland CR-8000
Other similar vintage rhythm boxes/drum machines
A decent vocal harmonizer/effects
Modular stuff
DIY synth stuff (PCBs and such)

+/- cash
