Post by LOFA » Thu Mar 23, 2006 5:28 am

If anyone has any leads or parts (particularly if they are fancy,) I would be appreciative or even interested in throwing some cash.

I've been googling all day and it's getting rough. If anyone has any water damaged items or something that they have smashed past the point of use, I could really use this for an art project I am working on!

Thanks!

Lofa

do refined ebay searches in the musical instruments category for "parts" (as in "for parts")

EDIT - if you're doing what I think you're doing, these are some options as well:

Hmmm. Helpful. But still no luck. Google produced this though:

Hmmmn.

LOFA has a good question,,, is there a good sales channel for dead synths?
I'm interested, too.

Dude! Your my neighbor! Wussup!?

Sorry to go off topic but it is for a box of limited edition Lithography prints I am doing. The prints are illustrations of me as an old man teaching teaching piano and fm synthesis in a crumb/childrens book style, yet with adult interests in mind. THe prints will be done on various papers to illustrate hrythm, texture, etc. THe inside will be lilned with varieties of fabric.

Booyah!

That is why the moog faceplate looks so nice, but damn is it expensive!

Oh yeah- off to work!

PM me if you feel like it neighbor!
