Vintage Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev2 SN 0486


via this auction

"For auction here is a vintage Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev2........serial number 486. This a one owner P-5. I purchased this Prophet new, in 1978, and used it for approximately three years. It was then put into storage inside its Anvil case in my warehouse/rehearsal building. That building, which I have occupied for the past four decades was sold last summer, and I got notice I would have to move out. I got the Prophet out last fall, and it would not power up correctly. I shipped it to Wine Country Sequentials in early April. Wine Country has been servicing and modifying Sequential Circuits product since the early 1980's, when the Sequential factory ceased operations. They are considered the Prophet 5 experts. I received delivery back from Wine Country last week, and this Prophet has been refurbished and serviced, and is now ready for a new owner.

The Rev2 Prophets were designed with the revered SSM chips, and are considered by most to be among the warmest, fattest sounding synths ever produced. The sound and flexibility of the Prophet 5's are legendary. This one keeps with that tradition, and sounds incredible."
