Fusion 6HD For Sale

Post by Saul » Tue Jun 11, 2019 12:11 pm

Just found this Fusion 6HD for sale on Ebay UK. Price is currently £375 with no bids but I think that is probably top dollar for a 6HD right now.

Of course it is still a LOT of keyboard for the money so might be of use to someone?

This has now been relisted on Ebay. There were no takers even at £375.00

Still a bargain although personally I would have put it up as a buy it now of £375 with best offer.

Agreed. That sort of spec, especially the extra memory already fitted doesn't come up often.

I just picked up a Fusion 6HD in Alhambra, CA yesterday for $200 US, all because a woman wanted to get rid of her ex-husbands stuff cluttering up the garage. It's in decent shape, a few cosmetic scuffs, but everything tests out with the diagnostics (original 80GB HD, 64MB memory). Volume knob is a bit noisy and I need to test it out all the features more, but wow it was a bargain.

Sorry, just had to gloat a bit. :twisted:

Welcome to the Forums sandubogi . . . .

THAT is a great price. 80Gb indicates it's a later model. (they originally came with 40Gb)

The 6HD has a very decent keybed . . . . I have an 8HD too . . . .

If you've a mind to . . . The RAM upgrade is best bought from: https://www.sector101.co.uk/exm-e3.html

rather than InMusic.

There's an SSD upgrade I researched also, which I currently have running on both my Fusions . . .

Thank you parametric!
I will probably upgrade the RAM and do the SSD Install. Although the 80GB drive is working just fine for now.
I keep thinking "oh I should just sell it" but then I start noodling around, hearing how great it is and the feeling of the keys.
GAS isn't a disease, it's the cure for everything else ;).

...and yes I do love the old BBC TV H2G2.
Many formative years in front of US Public Broadcast Systems channel that showed select BBC series.
Loved it (but it did cause some odd youthful speech patterns).

Wow $200! What a fantastic buy :)

The Fusion was very much under priced to start with and hence used prices slid pretty quickly. However that does mean we can now pick up a really powerful synth for very little money. Still, $200 beats my lowest price Fusion 6HD which I got for £225/$277 a few years back. That was in mint condition and came fully loaded with all the Hollow Sun sounds plus some other third party sounds. Also had the 80Gb drive.

If you can resist the urge to sell and buy something else it is well worth hanging on to :)

Just saw this 6HD on ebay USA $1,028 includes shipping

The price is to high even though about $130 +/- goes for shipping :(

I think I need to replace the volume and left panel assembly (vol is "dirty" and the first knob is skippy) and do the SSD/Memory upgrade before I even think of selling it.

You may find that if you squirt some switch cleaner inside the pot cases and give the knobs a good work-out . . . .

That is all you need to do . . . .?

Something like this . . . . . .
