Arp 2600 FS compilation

Post by Analog Prophet » Thu May 14, 2020 9:40 am

Just for curiosity - what serial numbers do you have on your Arp 2600 FS, where did you bought it and when did arrive? Any issues? Mine is:

Serial: 0348
Purchased at Thomann, Germany
Arrived May 12th

The top part of the keyboard cover (not the keyboard was cracked in two corners, the coating to the transport case was had holes in some corners. Nothing serious but mentioned it to my reseller.

The FS part of your thread title is confusing - it's too close to "For Sale", and as far as I know Korg doesn't use FS in their product name. Call it a Korg ARP 2600.

I agree with this.

With all respect, Arp 2600 FS is the correct product name - please check your serial number tag as well as Korg’s product page for the product: https://www.korg.com/se/products/synthe ... rp2600_fs/

FS is in Korg terminology Full Scale (thank God they didn't transformed the 2600 to a toy), not For Sale, File System, Flight Simulator, Fail Safe, Frank Sinatra or other FS terminology.... I guess.

I stand corrected! FS means Full SIze. (not really, jk). I would still advocate adding serial number or something to the thread title, as the way it currently reads it looks like you're making a thread about the various ARP 2600's that are for sale, which might be a thing, although not your specific thing. Just saying - ignore me if you want, it's your thread, I'll wander off and leave you alone now.

I disagree.

I also call it the 2600FS <-- note there is no space compared to the thread title. I did not at all think this was a for sale thread from the title.

I'd agree Korg 2600FS OR KARP 2600FS is better than ARP 2600FS, but really all three should be okay. Even 2600FS by itself. The "FS" is the important identifier for Korg's version of a classic ARP synth.
