ARP Odyssey Mark III

On the workbench this time is an Arp Odyssey Mark III. This one had some serious keyboard problems, stuck keys and intermittent notes. The problem stemmed from old and bent J-Wires. Like many of the other old Arps (as well as many vintage keyboards) This machine has a pratt and reed keyboard. Instead of trying to bend back the old J-Wires we opted to make a new set and replace them all. After completion it’s almost like having a new keyboard on there.

If you have a pratt and reed based keyboard that’s exhibiting these symptoms drop us a line and we can certainly take care of it for you.

Sequential Circuits Pro One

On the workbench this time is a Sequential Circuits Pro One. This unit belongs to a famous Swedish musician that’s been in the studio here at Analog Sweden for the past three days. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to mention his name so I won’t.

Anyway the machine had several problems ranging from tuning, crackly potentiometers and keyboard problems. I gave the machine a complete overhaul and now it’s in great shape once again. Quite a bit of work but well worth it for a machine of this calibre.

Instead of using the now hard to obtain rubber bushings we replaced them with our own method using custom cut felt. This works well for all pratt and reed style keyboards, so if you have one that is failing drop us a line. We can also fix and repair faulty J-wires on these keyboards.
