Korg PS3100 patchable polyphonic synthesizer for sale. We painstakingly electronically restored this unit to like new functionality, doing all necessary repairs as well as lots of cleaning and preventative future-proofing work few other sellers do, since most people are more concerned with minimizing their investment and maximizing profits than having happy customers. This work was done in an effort to hopefully keep this item running well a lot longer than others on the market. This process takes a long time, around 40 hours when done right. The hard work we put into this unit has resulted in one of the best 3100's out there.

We've seen lots of amateur and professional techs do really sloppy work on these that actually took more time than it otherwise would have as we needed to fix the mess they made. We've also seen inexperienced techs use the wrong replacement and it's incredibly frustrating - this is not something that should be done unless it's done 100% right. 


We buy, sell, trade and restore all vintage synths including the Korg PS series synthesizers (PS3300, PS3200, PS3100). They all need a similar treatment in order to work reliably, and this is a very time consuming and costly procedure that should only be done by a very experienced vintage synth tech. Consider this if you're selling one or thinking about buying an unserviced unit. 

What we love about this unit is the fact that it's full polyphonic (all notes can be played simultaneously!), has an amazing triple resonator that creates the best phasing sounds ever, and is one of the only patchable polysynths ever made. Oh, also the global envelope generator has a trick or two, and the ensemble and amplitude mod allow you to create some incredibly rich sounds.
