Sequential Circuits Prophet T8 SN 000353 w/ Extras

via this auction

via the seller: "I acquired this beauty, (restored by "Wine Country Sequential,") in 2003, making me the second user-owner. It never left my studio, except when I recently shipped it to (now) "Wine Country Productions" to service the electronics. During a thorough testing of the T8, I discovered something I never noticed during previous use--a very subtle shortening on decay and release times of 2 out of the 8 voices. That problem was resolved by replacing two IC chips. In addition, the mechanical keyboard was refurbished. I received the twice-restored T8 on 12-14-17. As a result of this overhaul, all keys are fully functional with no loud clacking sounds from hammers falling back on keys upon release. The keys trigger optical sensors instead of making physical contact, and are extraordinarily velocity sensitive for nuanced performance, and also have polyphonic aftertouch (a rare feature), with amplitude adjustment and 7 destinations--Frequency of Osc A & B, PW, Filter, Amp, LFO amount, and LFO frequency. The action is very similar to an acoustic piano. I haven't found another weighted keyboard synth or controller that compares. It mates very well with the (included) Roland P330 digital piano module, which contains variations of 3 grand piano sounds, harpsichord, clavi, 2 E. pianos (Rhodes), and vibraphone. The included T8 foot switch enables the programmable "2nd release" of the T8 sounds, and sustains the P330 via midi. You can also sequence and program change the P330 module from the T8's on-board sequencer."
