Sourcing PAIA pin tip plug cables

Post by Hissstories » Sat Oct 07, 2017 10:20 pm

I recently found an old PAIA 2700, untouched in probably 40 years, covered in at least as much dust. I cleaned it up, powered it on, and couldn't believe it worked. It sounds great, and through Strymon, sounds truly unique and quite amazing in its simplicity, and for surviving this long.

It came with a few patch cables and pin tip plugs. Any idea where I can pick up some new pin tips? I can solder my own if necessary, just need the plugs.

Thank you.

Excellent, I will check out those links. I really couldn't believe it was working when I got it patched up. Definitely a unique piece of synth history.

The PAIA 2720 synth was sold with an economical "shirt button" keyboard-controller, or the better and more popular piano keyboard - which is yours?

It's got the full keyboard. Doesn't track very well, but it's all part of it

I recognize that pic from a "popular online auction site." Hope you get some enjoyment out of the synth whether you keep it or not.

Thanks man! Right in the middle of a job change, moving situation, so it's one of the things I put up reluctantly, and hopefully priced high enough to discourage buyers! :hmm:
