ARP Odyssey MK-I 2800
via this auction
"As you can see I the pics, this vintage, c 1970s very first version mk-1 2800 Arp odyssey is in excellent, I hesitate to say mint condition. This is a GENUINE, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE synth, NOT a korg made Chinese reissue. It has just been completely serviced and calibrated, and is in 100% perfect working order. Every key, function, knob, slider and switch operates as designed, and they synth sounds...amazing. All of the original slider caps are also present and accounted for. This is easily the cleanest I've ever seen. Awesome.
This synthesizer makes all of the beeps, boops, squishy leads, booming basses, and wacky modulation noises you want. You can also achieve wild cross-modulation between the oscillators by switching them into unison mode and using the vco2 pitch to pit them against each other. She also has ring mod, s&h, pink/white noise and audio in for the rad (big time self oscillating!) filter. Later models tended to have a tamer sounding filter, and this one is anything but! You'll notice it is an OG model 2800 synth, not a later 2810 or 2813. The synth is in terrific cosmetic condition, with only minor wear."
