Oberheim OB-1 SN 0598

via this auction

"Perhaps Oberheim's most undersung but amazing sounding monosynth. The OB-1 does not sound like a SEM, and it does not sound like one of their later polys--it has it's own distinct sound and power that rivals any other monosynth from that era. Take the girth of an Octave Cat A-Rev. and apply some Oberheim filter flavor and you are getting close to what this sounds like.

This OB-1 has both MIDI and the Tauntek CPU update that allows real-time editing of all parameters and an increased preset memory. It has also been fully serviced by Bell Tone Synthworks here in Philadelphia and is ready to rock for the foreseeable future."
