Synths Resurrected Vol. 3

The Prophet 5 we recently acquired form the famous British band "Tears For Fears" was in bad shape - I mean really bad.
Watch how the amazing guys from our UK Care center put all their love and care into this restoration.

What synths would you like to see in our upcoming Synth Museum?

Re: Synths Resurrected Vol. 3

Maybe not synths in that sense, but Roland TD-series of drum modules would be really nice!

But I still have room in my keyboard rack for some more synths

Re: Synths Resurrected Vol. 3

The Polysinthi looks beautiful and certainly has some unique features, but the sound is miles away from a eg VCS3, with its divide down technology on the Oscilators and just 1 filter. If i could choose i'd take the Prophet any day. 

Very excited as to what fruits these lovely restored originals might bear one day

Re: Synths Resurrected Vol. 3

Great restoration job and video! Thanks for letting make some sounds at the end.
This was very special for me as some of my all time favourite sounds came from the Prophet 5 eg Richard Barbieri, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Steve Jansen, Kraftwerk etc
I would like to see in our museum an Oberheim OBX http://www.vintagesynth.com/oberheim/obx.php
or a more recent unusual synth http://www.vintagesynth.com/misc/neuron.php
Thanks.
