This kit contains replacements for all the polarized (tantalum and electrolytic) capacitors in the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 (Revision 3) synthesizer. Additionally this includes all bridge diodes and voltage regulators on the power supply board which have taken a beating from years of extreme heat. If your synthesizer has not yet been recapped or is broken, this kit is an essential starting point in any repair. The original electrolytic capacitors have long since dried out and stopped performing as they should, which may manifest itself in improper or inconsistent operation. This kit contains high quality capacitors to replace these failed or failing capacitors and provide decades of stable operation.
We provide quality, name brand, long life capacitors. A great deal of thought was put into the selection of the type and characteristics of the replacement capacitors to select the capacitors that are best suited for their intended purpose, even when this type differs from the original manufacturer selection. High temperature 105°C, low ESR capacitors provided for the power supply section and voltage values were increased above the original where they will physically fit to ensure rock solid operation and long life. All capacitors are of the appropriate physical dimensions (including the massive screw-in can capacitors on the power supply), so there will be no awkward difficulty getting the parts to fit.
We also provide a checklist of the capacitors provided for each board, to reduce your time wasted poring over the schematics and scratching your head wondering where that last capacitor is supposed to go. This product requires disassembly of the synthesizer and soldering skills to install. Please contact us if you require installation services.
