Rare Original ARP 2600 Front Panel Facsimile

via this auction

"We got this with one of the many ARP 2600 synthesizer we have bought, meticulouslty refurbished and future-proofed and resold.

ARP made a 2600 Front Panel Facsimile pad of blank patches where users could draw in their patch settings so they could recreate them later.

This is a big (36" x 21"), thick laminated blank ARP patch panel drawing that's similar if not identical to the image of the front panel in that Facsimile pad. Because it's laminated and a similar ARP piece we have is not, we suspect it was created for teaching purposes for the demonstrator to write settings on using a dry erase marker. There are no signs one would expect of dry erase marker use on the front panel, but we're still hopefully this was more than just a decorative promotional piece. The other alternative is, of course, that this is just a decorative piece of promotional ARP art. Either way, it's pretty cool. Notice the laminate is raised in places.

If anyone has more info about this rare item, please contact us! (Someone already got in touch to let us know we were most likely correct about our assumptions).

Roland 303 not included."
