Oberheim OB-8 SN C24914

via this auction

"Made in USA in1984, here we have a fantastic working example of one of the most desirable polysynths of all time, Oberheim OB-8. This was the final model in the OB range, only 3,000-ish ever made 1983-1985, and has the most features, including arpeggiator, "page 2" advanced editing, for example. 120 program memory ( + splits/dual), factory-installed MIDI (vital!) add extreme clout to the huge/fat sounds that only Oberheim can supply, with 8 voice (stereo) polyphony and uncomplicated new sound creation hand in hand with subtractive analogue synthesis, its simply one of the best synths ever made. Lots of movie soundtracks used OB-8s. Prince/Police/Pet Shop Boys etc were avid users...Hail, King Oberheim the 8th!

Dims are 103 x 53 x 16(H) cms. Weight is only 17 kgs. This particular one is now working 100%, after pro servicing by Klassic Keys GB's expert tech. See internal pix. All repaired, with new chips, new battery and new power switch...all voiced and calibrated, with stable tuning on all 8 voices.."
