My next comment was going to be “damn, if you paid $1700 for another juno, why not spend $1500 and grab that Polysix instead for a different flavour”
I paid nowhere near the $1800 (half
) for the ones that are going for sale at Paul's (they've had two recently), and this thing has been serviced too. Though I might restore the factory patches because the ones the previous owner(s) made are less than stellar.
A polysix is cool for sure! Maybe if/when I sell my Moog Prodigy and Roland SH-2000, which aren't sparking joy for me...
Yeah $900 CAD is currently an excellent price for a 106 especially if it’s had the voice chips replaced. I bought mine for $750 3 years ago but instantly dropped an additional $450 on voice chips and a full service from Jim Nelson in Missisauga. Assumed chips/service would cost nowhere near that when I bought it and lack of homework whipped me good. No biggie, still love it to death.
I’ve never played a Polysix but have always found them most pleasing to the ear, if I had more than 11c to spend on gear these days I’d consider finding one (as well as making you an offer on that Moog
For sure. A lot of people complain that they can't get Junos for $45 anymore, but also... So what? It's a classic synth and a classic for a reason. Everything, except behringer, is expensive for what you get. I like the Minilogue, for instance, just fine... But i'd take a Juno over it any day, and evidently I did because I have two! I couldn't say no to this one at that price, especially considering they're currently going for around $1500-$1800 in Toronto.
I think I'll definitely be getting rid of one, though. I can't really justify having both, even though it really is fun running a sequence on one and using the other for chords, pads, melodys, etc. I mean, what gets along better with a Juno than another Juno?
Hey, I'll do trades as well on the Moog if you've got anything interesting (it comes with a case as well).
