Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 SN 5064

via this auction

"Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. I think it's a 3.3 but you can check yourself from the serial number. Here's the work I just had done: Rebuilt the power supply, Rebuilt keyboard & springs, Installed new front panel potentiometers, Installed new CEM 3340 {repaired LFO], reflowed all interconnects inside to insure reliability, cleaned and reseated all IC chips in their sockets, cleaned and referbished all cable assemblies, headers and interconnects and loaded factory patch set #2. Tested all functions. All work was performed by Pro Audio in Tampa Florida by Mike Jay who is a vintage synth guru. He's vintage himself. I just spent over $1600 on this Prophet 5 to make it 100% correct. It should last you a long, long time. I didn't redo the wood case so there are some bumps and scratches. If you want a pristine wood case use sandpaper and oil. A word on Prophet 5 synths: Everyone seems to want the 2.2. I've owned the 2.2 and used it in the studio. I constantly had to hand tune the oscillators before each session, a real pain. That's the big difference with the 3.3 - the oscillators stay in tune."
