Your New Favorite Synth Dealer

After years of great success in the vintage synth restoration business, Rosen Sound is proud to now offer quality synthesizers for sale to the public under the moniker of Rob’s Rare Synths. Alongside dealing in goods, we’re also able to buy your gear whether it’s one piece of gear or an entire collection. 

What’s So Rare?

Simple! Our gear works, actually has the work described performed, and comes with the most killer warranty in the biz. Additionally, you will not deal with unscrupulous characters, and you will have direct contact with the business owner who communicates using his real legal name. Can you imagine wiring thousands of dollars to someone operating under a pseudonym? We can’t either, and we’re here to change the game.

What’s For Sale?

Lot’s! Check out our Reverb store for most gear that’s ready to go. More synths are listed below. If you’re interested in any, simply contact us through our contact page.

Warranty?

We go absolutely nuts restoring our synths. For most machines, they’re completely stripped down and cleaned out. Following that, each board is inspected and failing or problematic components are replaced for maximum reliability without any detriment to the sound of the unit. Our years of experience restoring these machines has bestowed us the knowledge to know what fails the most, from certain capacitors and resistors, to CMOS and op amps, etc. With that said, we guarantee the synthesizer to be free from work related defects for as long as you own the machine. Not just for 30 days or 3 months like other dealers. If you own it, you’re covered.

Whats not covered is negligence, accidents, and problems related to aging. This is vague, and unfortunately there is no way to draw a hard line on what qualifies as age related and work related issues. This grey area is where we excel in customer service. We stress that this is why it’s important to deal with honest and reasonable people, which we are. We can’t predict the future, and neither can you. Science says even brand new components can fail suddenly. If this is the case for your purchase, we’re happy to help you. If it was something we may have missed, there’s no charge. If it’s something age related or what we call “random acts of science”, you also still be helped, potentially just for the cost of the part, assuming that part doesn’t cost $0.50 like most parts inside synthesizers. 

Want To Sell Us Your Gear?

RRS is well financed to purchase one synth or an entire collection of them. The selling process is simple. Let us know what you have and we will put together a personalized offer for you.

No, we’re not interested in paying full price for the synth you just got fixed somewhere else.
