  1. I am certain there will be an influx of used Prophet-5's for sale on E-Bay and Reverb. Dave realized if you can't beat them than join them. it is nice to be able to buy a re-creation of a vintage synth with out refinancing your mortgage. I beat the all the cork sniffers are in a PANIC. Thanks Dave for realizing poor people like me would love to own a Prophet-5.
