Additional Tone Tweakers Listings

"This unit was fully refurbished over a whopping 33 hours. The result is a professionally restored instrument that's fully functioning and is ready to play, unlike most, and is justifiably more costly than lesser examples. Depeche Mode used this model sampler heavily to create its signature sound in the 80s.

This is just some of the work we did to it - not everything is listed:

The power supply was recapped. New fuse cap and new fuse were installed. Unit was cleaned up inside and out. Cleaned keyboard and key contacts. Removed floppy disk drive unit - it worked only some of the time, as is typical with vintage drives - when they work at all - so we replaced it with a much better HxC drive. This card emulator cost was around $200, and the whole installation process and testing took several hours of tech time. We installed operating system 3.1. Cleaned and lubed all switches and faders. Replaced the display with a brand new one much better than the original. Replaced the front panel membrane sheet with a new one.

Note the crack along the bottom right side that was repaired. This damage occurred due as a result of improper packing before we purchased this unit. People who don't know how to properly pack items like this for shipment should not attempt to pack them. We will pack this unit safely so it gets to its next home intact."
