Future Proofed PPG Wave 2.2

via this auction

"This machine just sounds brutally gorgeous. A vintage epic monster.

The early PPG Wave 2.2 has a more raw and aggressive sound than the later Wave 2.3. Ideally you could have both but why not start with the bad boy first?

It is unusual to find an early Wave 2.2 with factory MIDI and individual out installed. This raw sound with the later machines flexibility? Epic.

We have been working on PPGs since 1998 and know these machines inside out.

Complete Future Proofing completed October 2020:

- All critical power supply components has been replace with brand new high quality components. All voltage regulators, all capacitors. All of it.

- New memory backup battery

- Cleaning and inspection of all critical connectors

- Extensive "burn-in"

- Calibration

- Brand new Pratt Reed bushings

It is almost 40 years old so some wear an tear is to be expected. Worth noting are the 'mandatory' scratches on top of the unit. These are actually really minor for being a Wave."
