Gibson owned them, but it was a Viscount product repackaged for Oberheim, so
they're the one to get the service stuff from, and since they're an Italian
company, expect a few headaches on that front.
My OB3 was acting up, and Audio Electronics in Dallas did a good job of
getting it working properly again.
It's an unusual beast, and more fragile than I'd like for it to be, but it
does provide a good tubby sounding organ and the drawbars are very nice.

Subject: [oberheim] OB-3 problems
I've just purchased an OB-3 from ebay with a few problems. 1st off, I was
wondering if anyone here in Oberheim-land had a service manual for this
I've already talked to a friend at Gibson Service who told me I'd
have to go thru Viscount Organ and wished me luck. As the guy has stated, it
started out as stuck notes, then it would freeze up.
Now, there's no lights or sound except for what he thinks is transformer
hum. I should be receiving it in the next few days. Anyone have any ideas of
what it might be
Also, who owned and made Oberheim at the time this came
I appreciate any help I can get on this.
