lol. i didn;t know you could jack up the price of a synth because you programed a 'custom preset' on it. this means all our gear has appreciated… we'll all be rich!



:lol: :lol: Does that mean if I sold my MS20 with all the patch cables intact I could have asked for another $200 ?
bonne chance

Admittedly, I'm interested to see if there's an extra-large, die hard Neuron fan willing to shell out for this.

Regardless of high end price, description all kinds of wrong, regardless of it being a 7 or 100. Still not sure which synth is being sold ... might explain the $420 starting price though.

Not a synth, but I think the sheer ridiculousness of the price (twice the standard European retail price) warrants it's inclusion here.

I know these went for a crapload of money when released, but the market quickly corrected that situation with the release of the DX line. MAYBE if it were in perfect condition for the historic types, but this one looks like it was pulled from a junkyard.

Free shipping from Israel tho...
