Response from the owner - a month ago
I am very sorry you were disappointed with your experience. You originally wanted to sell us your gear, but then requested that your items be repaired and consigned. My priority was to make your synths as valuable as possible so as to get you as much money for them as possible. Both synths needed a lot of work. If I can make a synthesizer work, instead of leaving it broken, I will go the distance to make sure that will happen. I always make sure not to go over half the value of the instrument, unless we have discussed otherwise.
Work performed on the Pro One:
- Rebuilt keybed w/ new bushings.
- Replaced 2X: 16P sockets on keyboard and main board.
- Cleaned all pots & switches.
- Cleaned key contacts.
- Rewired transformer secondary circuit to eliminate ground loop hum.
- Fully calibrated unit.

Work performed on the Jupiter 6:
VCO 1 voice C on 4 VOICE module board inaudible. Replaced dead BA 662 VCA IC (VCO mixer).
