Brilliantly excellent condition! The culmination of several years of improvements and refinements to the Oberheim OB series, the OB-8 is the last in the line of the great classic analog synths from Oberheim. This OB-8 is an 8 voice polyphonic synthesizer with 120 patch memory and MIDI. This synth has the page 2 functions factory silkscreened on the panel. The synth has been serviced with:
- Rebuilt power supply, including new capacitors, multi-turn trimmers, and beefed up bridge rectifiers
- Full calibration – power supply, DAC, bender assembly, and voice boards
- Key contacts cleaned & refreshed – fresh conductive material applied to the key contacts to keep the keyboard triggering reliably
This synth is in excellent condition! Some of the pots are stiffer than others, but I’m stretching to find any fault in this beautiful synthesizer.
Prospective buyers are welcome to come try it out before purchasing. Local pickup is welcome and encouraged. If being shipped, the instrument will be professionally packed by the UPS store and insured for the full purchase price, but this is a vintage electronic item, so all sales will be as-is and final. But check out the Synthchaser Youtube channel and rest assured that this keyboard was given a quality service job by an experienced and detail-oriented Oberheim expert! No international shipping on this keyboard.
