"Alright, before y'all start posting this listing on your forums and social media groups saying "ermergerd! look at this $6k PPG Wave 2.3 that doesn't even work", most of y'all have never played a PPG Wave and don't know the magic that lives inside it. Nothing, NOTHING, sounds like a PPG Wave except a PPG Wave.

OK, I bought this dude back in 2007. I ordered the V8.3 system along with new LCD backlight and knob covers from Virtual Music in Austria. I had my local tech install said parts, but never could get proper audio out of it - just seach YouTube for "PPG Wave Strange Output", that's this very synth. You can also see the keyboard doing the "PPG Wave" also known as Austin Powers' teeth. It's going to need rebushing like every other synth with a Pratt-Read keyboard.

Again, with the "ermergehrd!", why is shipping so high. Again, you boneheads don't know how fragile these synths are. I sold a Wave 2.2 to Calvin Harris a few years ago. I build a crate out of OSB and secured it to a shipping pallet and shipped it via motor freight so that it would not be handled improperly. I will ship this the same way.

If no one buys it, good. Maybe someday I will find a tech that can bring it 100% functionality.
