Oberheim OB-X 8 Voice SN 800801

via this auction

"Oberheim OBX 8-voice vintage analog synthesizer from 1980. I’m the first and only owner. This synth was used for a few short tours through Germany, maybe three times for about 6 weeks each. It was always placed inside the bottom part of its heavy duty flight case on top of a CP70. As of 1984, it has been in a smoke-free studio only.

It has recently been restored to its former glory and future-proofed by Rob Rosen in Los Angeles. An Encore MIDI interface was installed and is working as advertised, expanding the number of patches to 128 and enabling remote playing in both directions. No cosmetic enhancements have been made, but more fancy side panels are available from Rosen Sound, if such an upgrade is desired. No flight case, no original box."
