Vintage Oberheim TVS-1 Two Voice Synthesizer

via this auction

"A classic with Big Fat analog sounds. If you’ve been thinking about buying one of these instruments this is GREAT opportunity to purchase a very valuable piece at a reduced price.

Things to know:
The unit is FULLY functional but there are a few MINOR issues. Electronically all modules work as intended. The keyboard is in great shape but the upper octave Bf key is slightly sticky and has a different feel. For some reason the second octave C key is about a 1/16" above the others. All keys release quickly but I think the key release is a bit loud....may be normal for this keyboard but I've read that the rubber dampening bushing harden with age. If so new ones are available. The sequencer clock slide switch center detent is not as positive as new but DOES work. As with any vintage piece the pots are smooth but could use a shot of cleaner/lube to restore pristine feel. Overall the Tolex is great with a few SMALL tears and scuffs.

Due to age this item is sold in as is condition and returns are not accepted BUT the unit is accurately described. If you have any question please feel to contact me before bidding.

Includes TVS-1, power cord, abridged user guide and all schematics (see photos)."
