"Ultra rare 32 voice 76 key Waldorf Wave Shadow! You won't ever see another one like this for sale again. There were only 300~ made and probably less than 100 have these options!

This Wave was formerly owned by Drew Neumann and he took very good care of it. His friend's signatures can be seen on the back panel under the face plate.

There are almost no issues with this synth. There are 3 LEDs out and the display is dim - that's it. I purchased some replacement LEDs but would need to modify the circuit board to match the intensity of the originals. The owner and I decided it was not in our best interest to change them, so they have been left alone. The LEDs that are out are the -1 OCT footing for OSC 1, the -2 OCT footing for OSC1, and the HOLD LED in the manager panel. I can include the replacement leds in the sale. Unfortunately, there are no replacement options available for the back light on the display. The ELP can be replaced, but it is very very risky. Again, we decided to leave it alone.

The hydrolics that hold up the back panel fail all of the time. I just replaced them last week. Also, a new pair is included in the sale.

The original disk drive has been replaced with a 16GB USB drive.

The internal battery was replaced last week and the operating system was updated to OS 1.910. More info can be found here about the new OS:

I went through the entire self test menu. All buttons, sliders, and potentiometers are working perfectly without glitches or data skips. All potentiometers move smoothly and feel fresh. You can see from the pictures that all of the self tests came back OK. You can also see that 32 voices have been installed and are working perfectly."

Note the last image of the display below shows Board 3 not installed and a Failed message. I'm guessing that's one of the slave boards that would bring it up to 48 voices, referenced here.
