WTB: Lexicon Prime Time II

by Chris Randall

I'm looking for a Lexicon Prime Time II in good working order. Cosmetics not important, but everything internally has to be right. Please note that I DIDN'T say "Prime Time" or "Super Prime Time." I said "Prime Time II." If you've got you're looking to unload, drop me a line. Can't find one on Soundbroker. Sonic Circus doesn't have one. The ones on eBay are either in other countries or from people with 1 feedback, or both. Hook a brother up.

Does this mean a successor to Reverence is coming? Pretty please? :-)

No. It means I want a PT2.

There's one listed on this "School's Out Sale 2007" page at Sonic Circus, but I can't readily tell if the sale has since past and the page just wasn't removed:

They don't have one. I've already spoken to them. I've also written Jim Fabiano, to head off the first person that will suggest that particular tack.

While we're on the subject and wait for someone to pop along with some actual help, why does the Prime Time I look more like an Arp Odyssey Mark II? Were they manufactured in the same place?

Off the top of my head, I don't recall any connection between ARP and Lexicon, aside from being American music equipment manufacturers. The Prime Time and the Odyssey probably have similar-looking, if not identical, slider caps by coincidence and function of the availability of components. Back then the electronics-component market was much smaller than it is now, so the odds of two companies choosing the same slider caps were greater.

That's just a wild-ass guess, mind you.

the Odyssey and Prime Time I? i don't really see any similarities... the colors are very different. The slider caps are the only thin I see, but those are pretty common, still used today.

That first seller is a no go. The second may be legit, though.

The second is one of those "Sell My Shit On Ebay For Me" shops; they're usually reputable, but they're not able to answer any but the most rudimentary questions (e.g. "Is it black with blue stuff on the front?")

That said, the price is roughly half again the going rate for one, so I just assumed they were either (a) stupid or (b) basing their hopes and dreams on the misinformation of others. A Prime Time II in good working condition should be $500, no more and no less. (This is funny, as add a zero and you have its new price.)

As you say, the first one is completely out of the question. That guy ain't gonna be getting any bids from me. I dislike ebay intensely for pro audio gear, to the point where I'll just as soon not use it, no matter the deal.
