Hi Scott,

Poor recession-battered me, I'm about to sell my beloved Paia 4700/8700 synthesizer, and I thought I'd send you some pix for your collection before I post it on eBay this weekend. Here they are: ... _Paia.html

We spoke a few times back in the early nineties when I was refurbishing this guy--I sent you the sequencer for service, and you gave me some advice on repairing the EK-7 drum synthesizer (I failed). I still have your letters among the documentation, printed on a dot matrix printer. Later, in 1998 or so, I had occasion to interview your sometime collaborator Craig Anderton for a public radio piece I did about the history of the synthesizer:

I'm surprised and saddened to learn that John S. has passed away. I continue to find his writings and his projects inspiring.

Glad to see Paia is keepin' on keepin' on.

I am sorry that he has to sell such a nice vintage unit.
The Oz auction on eBay I was bidding on went to 225$ so he should get a decent price.
He should put a reserve of at least 1000$ IMHO.
Do not be discouraged by the lack of response here if he needs the bucks.
