I’ve been teetering between a Prophet Rev2 (8 voice) and a Prophet 6. I really can’t validate spending THAT much on a synth in the case of the 6, but I think I’ll end up overwhelmed with the Rev2 and all it’s sound-design functionality, and will end up actually less productive with it than if I got something more straight forward. =
Now, the point:
I’ve read that Rev2’s have been quite buggy with lots of defective units sold. I was going to buy it new (Thomann) just to be perfectly safe with warranties, receipts, etc.
If I go with a Prophet 6, obviously I’d want to save money, so I want to check out used deals. However, I’ve been told that the Prophet 6 needs attentive care and maintenance, so I’m just wondering if I’m better off waiting and saving to get a brand spankin’ new one, or if I should chill and consider buying used.
I guess sourcing personal experience from Prophet owners
Thanks in advance for your time!
