Hills Cloud Oberheim Four Voice (FVS-1) Restoration

Hills Cloud has several posts up on the restoration of an Oberheim Four Voice (FVS-1) with tons of pics and details. Be sure to see the rest of the site for more.

"I'm an avid music-gear hobbyist trying my hand at blogging for the first time, and thought I'd attempt to share some of my synth-related projects. I'm currently documenting a restoration of my Oberheim FVS-1 and MS-1A, and have attempted to chronicle some of my past undertakings - a Space Echo motor rebuild/bearing replacement, mono aftertouch customization on my SCI Pro-one, a Minimoog Model D refinish, and others. I have a slew of upcoming projects in the hopper (OB-8, Solina, 5U modular, Rhodes, and GR700 to name a few), and as I get into these I'll be posting tons of photos of the gear inside-and-out, occasional music/sounds, and any relevant technical info in hopes of helping or inspiring others who might be embarking on similar projects. I'd welcome any feedback, comments and contributions, and most of all I hope you enjoy it!"
