Sequential Circuits Original Prophet 5 Rev. 3 SN 3584
via this auction
via the seller: "Up for sale is our legendary Prophet 5 Analog Synth. This is the original beast that spawned the newer Prophet 08, REV2, Prophet 6 etc etc etc. There is simply NOTHING that comes close to the sound this beast gives. The new stuff is good, but its NOT this. This synth MADE countless songs throughout history... the 80s music era would be nothing without the Prophet 5.
I am the original owner. It has always been maintained by our veteran analog synth technician. It was last tech'd last year. All components checked... recapped where needed and calibrated. I have always only used it in my private studio for many recordings. It has NEVER been gigged. It looks fantastic as you can see from the pics. Almost "cherry" aside from a very minor nick here and there.
It all works and sounds amazing. No operational issues. Its never given me grief when used... turn it on, warm it up and TURN THOSE KNOBS! Instant gratification. Although it is playing, sounding and working as a Prophet 5 should. I am offering this as no returns and with the understanding that after being shipped in transit. It MAY need a tuning or calibration. Its the nature of these VERY old electronic synths. Im also selling an ARP Odyssey original here... listing it as is as well. I do pack extremely safe so no worries there."
