ARP ODYSSEY 70s Mk1 White Refurbished & Future-Proofed

via this auction

"Fully Refurbished & Future-Proofed, sparing no expense. This process took a whopping 23 hours of skilled labor. Part of this time was spent attempting to rebuild some of the original potentiometers, but they didn't meet our high standards after our efforts (they usually don't), so we decided to replace them all with new ones. In addition to a full servicing, we took preventative measures so this Ody will hopefully outlast all others out there. The work we did included the following:

Full disassembly and deep cleaning inside and out.
Power supply rebuild.
Replacement of all tantalum capacitors.
Removal and replacement of all rubber key bushings.
Cleaning of all key contacts.
Cleaning of bus bars.
Adjustment of keys.
Replacement of all potentiometers (approximate parts cost $300)
Cleaning of all switch contacts.
Replacement of power cord.

Post-restoration, this unit works like new again and is a real pleasure to play. Sure to make its next owner really happy. This unit is much better than the rest and is priced to reflect the investment we made to make it better than others on the market.
