This one's as MINT as it gets, unless you create a time machine! This is the lowest price I can offer. All 4 manuals included in photos & the power conditioner.
I bought this as a collectors grade piece, but I just don't use it enough to justify keeping it. It's barely be used & sounds better then anything you've ever heard. There is 1 tiny flaw in the case, where it was bumped by another synth. The restoration work alone cost $4272.70USD. I'm including the power switcher from UK to USA voltage & the manuals.
Remarks: Although these are not rare by some vintage synth standards, finding an Arp 2600 in anything approaching even good condition is a real challenge in 2014. This is why we invest such a lot of time, resources and money into getting them restored to the highest possible level that can be achieved – a FULL cosmetic and operational project restoration!
This Arp 2600 comes with a 3604P keyboard controller, original Arp power cable, keyboard-to-synth cable, and runs EU 220V. The actual version is a 2600P V3.0, manufactured between 1972 to 1974.

The restoration work we invest into the Arp 2600 is extensive (what we term Total Restoration). The work includes re-Tolexing the cabinets & lids, stripping the panels to bare metal and having them professionally repainted and screen-printed. We have all the sliders and sockets deep cleaned and the whole synth is electronically restored including the a PSU rebuild/re-cap etc. In addition, we have fitted a brand new 17 inch Acutronics Reverb Tank, and a full set of brand new slider caps.
This RL Music prepared Arp 2600 is over 40 years old, and is in ‘as-new’ condition. On average we spend around £2800 GBP just in restoration costs for these models (synth & keys), so there is no equivalent in terms of quality offered by any person, or business, in the world. If you have been looking to own the ‘perfect’ Arp 2600 then look no further. These highly pro-restored examples are all sold with a full 6 months warranty.
