Oberheim OB-X Repair Video

Exploded Tantalum Capacitor

Exploded Tantalum Capacitor In the Oberheim OB-X

I started rolling the video camera when I repaired a very sick Oberheim OB-X.  Turns out it suffered some damage from the corrosive effects of mouse urine.  We also see the dangers of leaving the old tantalum capacitors in synthesizers.  I track down a memory retention issue causing the synth not to store patches correctly.  I also show how to rebuild the OB-X power supply and change the battery.

Look for a full set of products in the shop to get your OB-X running smoothly and safely for years to come.
