Repair Crumar Bit 01 Vintage Analog Synthesizer Reparatur Service
Repair Crumar Bit 01 Vintage Analog Synthesizer came in for a complete Service.
I found some weak, some cold solder joints. These were resonsible for some voices not to play. I simply reflowed them and most of the issues were gone.
There was distortion in the output chain. I traced it down to an faulty OpAmp, which I replaced 1:1
Finally I replaced the electrolytic capacitors. This lovely Crumar is now future proofed and my customer is happy. I don't think I will ever see this one back in my workshop.
