Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 + GliGli Mod! SN 4540
via this auction
"Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 with GliGli mod. Here is a super-rad poly synth ( some say it is the first ever implementation of MIDI!) It's a six voice (2 osc per voice ) 100% analogue poly-synth with a dirty-raspy character. It's been described as raunchy, gritty, dirty, filthy, dark, vicious, dangerous, moody, plus it has poly-mod, an internal sequencer and serious character.
Some say it's a poor-mans Prophet 5, but I think it's more like the Prophet 5's Bad cousin breaking the law and hearts with wild abandon... but I digress. I have owned many an analogue synth and MAYBE the AX-60 comes close to having this much dirty fun, but not really. Nothing sounds like a Prophet 6 and frankly, I'm surprised that their prices have stayed so low ( what with stupid Jupiter 4's going for multiple thousands... ) anyway. The only reason I would sell this is because I have another ( which happens to have been my first synth ever ) and its just plain selfish to hold on to two of these babies.
This one is in excellent condition ( the top of one of the wooden ends lost a chunk somewhere, but that seems to be a normal battle scar for these things. ) it was recently serviced by the awesome folks at Switched On in Austin Texas. and is 100% functional and sounds devastatingly good. It has the Gli-Gli teensy mod installed ( which is amazing, look it up ) and it has a clever mod that preserves the delicate switch membranes installed as well. If you're in the market for a Prophet 600, this is the one. I promise it won't disappoint!"
