My SCI Pro-One Project...

A few months back I got very lucky on an eBay auction. Someone had listed a Sequential Circuits Pro-One in a slightly strange category with an absurd "buy it now" price and I snagged it right away!

When it arrived, I realized it would be a bit of work. It was really filthy with layers of dust and someone had marked his favorite knob positions on the panel with ruby sparkle nail polish! The key bushings were dried out pretty badly, the output jack was damaged and there were some scratchy pots and coarse-moving switches. Worst of all, the pitchwheel was broken in half!

Surprisingly, electronically it was fine...all functions worked!

The full story with many more photos on my website. Title link takes you there.



The case is solid Cherry from http://www.synthwood.com and is a thing of beauty to behold!

Update:
Nearly finished now. The webpage has been updated.

Beautiful case! I've always wanted a Pro One, too. Can't wait to see the final result and possibly hear a demo.
