If you're into vintage gear, you've probably come across our website. We've been buying, refurbishing and selling vintage synths and other electronic musical instruments for close to 30 years now. We're perfectionists and take our business, our gear, and our customers very seriously, so buy with full confidence - we won't let you down. 

Our prices here may seem, but we are a legit business with real business expenses, not your typical amateur seller with a Reverb store. Please click on our user name to read more about our shop so you better understand our prices & high standards. Reverb and merchant fees are of course already added into our prices here.


This unit was serviced by professionals (us). Refurbishing and thorough testing took approximately 10 hours. As you can see from the photo of the display taken after tuning, this unit tunes properly. As much as we love this instrument's design overall, the plastic end pieces were a poor design choice. We've seen a number of them broken, this one included. Our tech fixed these though, so you'll only notice minor evidence of this from the outside. Feel free to email us for bigger pics if you're serious about buying this beautiful synth. We cleaned all the pots to get rid of the typical and highly annoying glitches that make most A6's unusable, and we replaced the battery so you shouldn't have to do that anytime soon. Not because we needed to, but because we didn't want its next owner to have to go through the trouble.

This unit's ribbon controller had a dead spot in it when we got it. After calibrating it, the entire left side of the ribbon wasn't working, but the right side worked great. All three units we have here at the moment each have their own ribbon controller issue, and none of their sellers mentioned anything about ribbon problems before we bought them, suggesting people just don't notice these things or care to disclose them. We're not most people. Alesis stopped supporting this model a long time ago and we don't know of a source for replacement ribbons. If you do, we'd love to hear from you.
