Oberheim OB-8 Keyboard Synthesizer signed By Tom Oberheim

via this auction

"Oberheim OB-8 Keyboard Synthesizer signed By Tom Oberheim. Manufactured in Los Angeles California.(as they all were). Condition is Used. Very nice condition. 8 voices of pure analog joy.This has the page 2 functions but not the page 2 silkscreening. This unit has the midi interface (in,out,thru) on the wooden side piece. This synth sounds excellent except that sometimes,there is one voice that doesn’t seem to tune properly. And as with a lot of these, the keyboard has a few notes that are intermittent.I had this unit cleaned, tuned and calibrated but that was a few years back. Truth is I really haven’t used it much in the last 10 years...just sat in its case mostly. If my memory serves me correctly, this synth has been in my collection for about 30 years.This piece was made before Oberheim became ECC electronics (see back pic) so it’s an earlier model....I’m guessing 1985 but don’t hold me to it! Was signed by Tom Oberheim himself with a silver sharpie directly on the upper front of the synth(see pics). Comes with the original operators manual and Power cord."

I believe this one has been featured and listed a couple of times here in the past.
