Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 w/ MIDI REV 3.3 SN 3675


via this auction

"Serial # 1000-3675

Flight Case included. Near Mint.

This item has been in a smoke free studio since it's purchase in the 80's. Never gigged with. As you can tell from the photos, she is a beauty with very little wear (some minor dings and scratches) It sounds amazing and is fully functional minus a few hiccups:

1. As with all of these Prophet's, the bushings on the keyboard have worn out so the action is janky as is. BUT, I'm including a brand new set of bushings with lubrication. Unfortunately I don't have the time to make the change myself, but one can change the bushings easily and in less than two hours ... see youtube.

2. Two of the LEDS are out: OSC B SAW & Unison --- both buttons still function ... the leds are just burnt out.

3. In the Wheel-Mod section, the PW A button is stuck. Easily remedied by opening the synth up and unsticking it.

Other than than those minor problems the synth functions beautifully and sounds glorious. The synth looks and sounds flawless minus the minimal wear from being almost 40 years old. Make those small changes to the bushings and unsticking the button, and this synth is close to Mint."
