Korg 800DV (Maxi-Korg Maxikorg) w/ Kenton 8-socket Kit, New Wood & Black Knobs & Sliders

via this auction

These usually have colored sliders and knobs. It looks pretty cool in all black.

"fully serviced Korg 800DV with custom Kenton 8-socket kit (provides cv/gate for upper and lower voice as well as CV control of both low pass and high pass filters). New wood case!

What's unique about this 800DV is that it has hardware from what seems to match the Korg 770. I don't know of any other 800DV out there quite like this one.

There is some wear on the face, but not severe.

Takes a few minutes for tuning to stabilize while synth warms up, but after that it's good to go.

Here's a rare opportunity for a serviced 800DV with extremely useful socket modification.

Check out this youtube to get an idea of what these can sound like with the Kenton modification!
