    Synth Repair Services – Can You Find What You Need?
    This announcement got me thinking. Unfortunately, it’s harder than it should be for synth owners to connect with synthesizer and keyboard repair services and it’s hard to know what kind of work these companies do, if you’ve never used them before.
    My experience with repairs is limited to a couple of positive experiences – a Six-Trak repair at Wine Country and a MOTM module at Synthesis Technology. But I’ve also heard about people sending off their gear and not being able to get any information for months on when the work would be done or how much it would cost.
    Do you have experience with getting synths or keyboards repaired? I’d be interested in hearing stories about what you had done, who you worked with and what your experience was like.
    And do you think there’s a significant gap here in the knowledge that is available to synth owners? I’m wondering if there’s a signficant need for information here that’s not being addressed and, if so, if it’s something that the Synthtopia community could tackle.

  • I actually posted about these way back in 2005. Mark spotted them on the GForce site and sent the link in. I thought I'd put a new post up and capture the list of synths and description for the archives. BTW, also check out this post for some Roland info cards.

    "Vintage Synth Trumps
    This is Vintage Synth Trumps, a deadly serious card game for vintage synth enthusiasts featuring 52 classic instruments. Test your knowledge and settle those arguments once and for all with the synth-spotter's equivalent of arm-wrestling.

    Can you use your skill and judgment to win the whole pack from your opponents and become the undisputed champion of vintage synth wisdom?

    Playing is easy. Simply divide the cards between the number of players before taking it in turns to read aloud a statistic from your card.

    For example, "Korg PS3300 - Collectability = 5 out of 5". Everyone then compares the card on the top of their hand and the highest scoring instrument in that category wins that round. The person who gains all the cards wins.

    So next time your kids pester you for a card game, extract revenge with Vintage Synth Trumps (not available from any good department stores near you).

    The perfect kitsch gift for trade shows, long flights, forum banter, pub quizzes, train journeys and all round anorak type showing-off.

    Buy your pack of Vintage Synth Trumps for only £7.95 (price includes first class postage, other methods available)
