You can only stack them so high as I like to say. Once I cleaned up the guts I refinished the wood case, detailed it and put it all back together. Despite some efforts it remained silent except for the VCF. I dropped it off to Chris and he gave it a few weeks of very part time attention -mainly due to shipping times of ordered chips.
At the end. Notice it has all its slider caps here. Thanks Doug for the three I needed.
Wood came out amazing. Refinishing is really very easy -just takes some guts.
So Chris got it back on it’s feet. A few chips were replaced, some sliders I cleaned were recleaned and I got it back in tip top functional condition. Sound-wise the Opus 3 was good, better in some ways than my Omni 2, but in the end the Omni 2 won out and I put the Opus 3 up for sale on eBay to help fund a recently purchased CS-50 in the past-tense. I was hoping to get the $490 I was into it back out of it and realistically expecting to get about $650.
No mistaking that name plate. Bob knew the value of brand.
I always start auctions at $9.99 for two reasons -I always sell stuff worth quite a bit more than $9.99 so I’m not worried about getting some minimum and so that when I get near the final price the item has had a bunch of bids. Other words of advice? Accuracy and lots of high quality pictures.
$911!! Pretty sure this is the highest price paid for an Opus 3 in a while. I think they were over $1000 new. Worth it though. Functionally this was good as new and physically probably better with the wood refinished as nicely as it was.
