ARP 2600P with 3604P Keyboard

via this auction

"Freshly serviced & calibrated by top UK tech, this portable two-piece ARP 2600 system works 100%. You will know all about this "benchmark" instrument, made between 1971-1980 in Mass/USA. Its a rev.3 model. Check it out on YouTube....The 3604P keyboard (s/n 361128) connects to the 2600P module (s/n 261011) with multi-pin cable. It runs at 220Vac (mains cord supplied). There are some patch sheets/leads supplied.

THREE VCOs~noise generator~sample & hold~ring modulator~great filters~glide~spring reverb~twin internal speakers:- this is a comprehensive mono synth...

"any sound can be created..." (advertising blurb by ARP)..the voice of R2D2, for example..... ARP 2600 has been on countless recordings, used by numerous musos & producers......being a bit more portable than the 2500 system did help! Having 3 tuneable oscillators means any note can play a 3-part chord, if desired.....

Condition. "Very good"....should be excellent, but the tolex on the casings is a bit scuffed, new clasps have replaced some broken ones. We intend to leave "as is" for "patina & provenance" is possible, but would involve dismemberment of the module. We prefer to not risk any damage.......hey, it LOOKS 45-ish years old.....and looks cool, anyway......."
