ARP 1621 SEQUENCER SN 0086 w/ TWIN BUS MODIFICATION



via this auction

"Sequencer is in "good" condition for it years. As seen in the pictures is a VERY LOW Serial Number 86. This unit belonged to Patrick Moraz of the bands "YES" and "The Moody Blues" It was given to me during the time I worked with him 25ish years ago. He is also pictured on the original Manual Art. Has a as far as I know one of a kind "Twin Gate BUS MOD". See picture with original sticker of work done in England, I don't fully remember what the Twin Gate BUS MOD did, but I believe it allowed for 1/32 notes. I cannot find any documentation to prove it though. I have no way to "FULLY" test the device anymore. It powers on and I can step through the sequence. Some of the slider caps need replacement and can be purchased on an ebay auction for 5 euro ea. One of the Twin Gate switches needed replacing so I replaced all 16 of them. Those switches for your information - SPDT UP-DOWN-UP ; 3 position Switches"
