Oberheim OB-8 Analog Synthesizer with Factory MIDI & Original Box - SN C42011


via this auction

"This synth is in overall very good cosmetic condition with only a few light scratches to the face and back panels and some minor scratches to the bottom side of the unit. The wood side panels are in very good condition except for a light scuff on the left hand panel. Some of the original end panel fasteners were lost during a repair visit so I replaced them with close, but not exact, parts. The inside of the unit is very clean with no signs of damage or abuse. All graphics are in excellent condition. All of these faults are shown in the pictures.

This synth has a good keyboard with no broken or dead keys but the keys are noisy when they rebound. Key contacts and circuit board were recently cleaned and included application of conductive material to the contact pads.

Operationally, the synth powers up and sounds good. The unit will auto tune all eight voices with no exceptions being indicated. However, there is noticeable oscillator drift when playing."
