About This Listing

Optigan in good playable shape. I bought it in 2002, and it's been kept in a smoke-free home since. The seller at the time said: "I've probably recorded about a dozen different Optigans and I do believe this is the best operating one I have come across".  I owned one other; this one definitely was much better in terms of function and overall sound quality.

All keys work, and all chord buttons work easily. Volume pedal works. In the down position, special effects buttons 1,3 & 5 all work; 4 is intermittent, and 2 doesn't work; none work in the up (lock) position. These are known issues and can be resolved by disassembly and cleaning the contacts; there are videos on YouTube about how to do this.

Cosmetically it's in decent shape, with some scuffs and scratches. There is a small chip above the 4th special effects switch and some discoloration on the plastic apron above the chord and percussion switches.

Here's a video demo I made showing all of the keys, buttons, and knobs using the "Movin'" disc:

Comes with original Optigan bench in good condition.
