Reasonably Priced FS1R for sale on eBay

Unread post by javelin276 »

Hi Guys,
I have my spare FS1R up for sale on eBay, if anyone is interested. I've started it out at $987. Three have sold recently for twice that amount, but we'll see where it goes. These are getting harder and harder to find, so if you've ever wanted one but never took the plunge, this may be your chance. I've purchased another synth that I need to pay for, so this one has become my way forward.
Good Luck,
Javelin

This FS1R is in the US, a 120 vac model.

It's definitely the time of year for new gear. I hope you like your new synth!

Those FS1Rs sure sound great. I enjoyed that FM piano patch article.

Thanks! The Piano was pretty hard to get right. I think I got it close.
It was fun anyway you look at it!

That is certainly a reasonable start price for what is now a rare unit. The only other one on ebay at present is a "buy it now" at three times that price.

Yes, if you want an FS1R this is the only one currently under $1000 (US 120 vac power). It may not stay that way if bidding kicks in like it does sometimes on the last day of the auction. The 220 vac ones on Reverb are $2200 and $3200, the other 220 vac one on eBay is $3000. I see prices only going up from now on. I'm glad I jumped in a decade ago.
