Vintage Analog Oberheim Matrix-12 with New Displays
via this auction
"For sale is a great condition Oberheim Matrix-12 Synthesizer. If you are reading his, you probably know what this is! This is the most powerful analog synthesizer in one chassis EVER MADE! This particular unit is listed "AS-IS" because occasionally on startup it will display the 'voice processor 0 malfunction' error message. I believe this could be remedied by a power supply board rebuild. Most of the time the unit starts up fine, functions fine, sounds great, and passes all the calibration tests as pictured. This particular unit has been upgraded with brand new encoders and brand new displays ($500) which replace the old vacuum fluorescent displays which always die. The matrix-12 front panel has also been refinished to have a high gloss finish and has a protective coating over it. The 'matrix-12' logo on the front has some paint missing (pictured), other than that it looks great! This is also a unit which has factory aftertouch. Included is the original manual, power cord, and the synthesizer itself."
