About This Listing

 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 pix. There are one or two eeny scratches/dinks if you look for them. The keys are unchipped, they trigger every time. She tunes up well, and is very stable. NO scratchy pots/switches. All scaling & calibration is bang-on. Photocopied owner's manual is supplied. Sourced from Houston, Texas (October/2020), this lady was from one-owner-from-new, & never gigged; used sporadically in a dry, warm domestic studio. Free dustcover provided.            
 "Jump", by Van Halen (bless, Eddie...) is an easy-find example of the Oberheim sound (it was an OB-Xa,, little difference...). There are plenty of demos on You Tube.... Export price (now including Europe) is £5825.00. UK price (inc VAT) is £6999. FREE delivery (mainland) UK. Payment by bank transfer is preferred option. Anywhere else, just tell us where you are, and speedy send quote will be supplied.....we ship (nearly) world-wide. The OB-8 has a dual-voltage 120/220V switch, so no problems in that department. There are some cool patches on board...some factory ones....and lots of room for YOUR custom sounds......Its right here in England, and ready to go. You pay for what you get, it is said. So get this synth; it will increase in value in the future. It is therefore an investment. Klassic Keys GB have now rescued/fixed & re-sold twelve Oberheims (OB-X, OB-SX, OB-Xa & OB-8) over the past four years. NONE have had to repaired, such is the quality of service.....so buy with confidence. Buy elsewhere at your peril...... We will cheerily give you 12 months full guarantee.
Do you have surplus keyboards? To soften the fiscal pressure, we can hammer out some kind of deal. Give it a try? What have you got to lose? No rubbish, palease.......no silly low offers.........UK price is £6999, inc VAT @ 20%. EXPORT price is £5825.
