OBERHEIM OB8, 8-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer for auction. This is a must have synth if you like vintage analog machines. I have owned just about everything that has been made, and the OB8 is still at the very top of my list for sounding incredible. There are a few minor repairs that need to be done in order for this unit to be 100% functional.  The F# and A# keys in the top octave of the keyboard are intermittent (the ones with dimes on them in the pics). They work, but you have to sometimes depress them a few times before they come back to life. This is a fairly common problem with any keyboard that uses a Panasonic keyboard (Memorymoog, OB8, Polysix, Matrix-12 etc...). For me it hasn't been an issue because I use my OB8 like a sound module via MIDI, using a master keyboard controller. But if you want to use the keyboard, these keys need their contacts cleaned. 2. There are four buttons on the front panel called "group" buttons: A, B, C, & D. These let you select which bank of programs you want to play. The C and D buttons also need cleaning. They do work, but like the keys mentioned above, you sometimes have to tap on them a few times to get them to light up and work. But they do light up and work. One of the pics shows all four lit so you can see for yourself. 3. The number 5 program button is also a little fussy, but it definitely works. It has the same personality disorder as the others mentioned above. It needs to be cleaned. (And by the way, There is a guy on YouTube that goes by the name of "sounddoctorin" who sells replacement contact strips for the OB8 keys). This unit does have factory MIDI. I personally love the OB8 and would never be without one. If I didn't have two, I would never sell it. Like the OBX and OBXa, it has a big, thick, friendly sound, but it is far more reliable than its siblings (I know....I have owned them all).
