Hey, what's going on?
I have a Yamaha DX7 which I bought in 2007. I've had two problems with it: first, it started to sound weird around 1 year ago - the tone wound bend strangely in the attack of each note on every sound. Now, since last week the synth doesn't start up. I'm using a transformer as I bought it from the US and I'm living in the UK but the transformer works with my girlfriends hair straightener so the problem seems to be coming from the synth.
I want to get your opinion on whether it's worth repairing this synth or not. I'm sure some of you have experience with this model and can share some good advice. I've called a company which repairs vintage synths and they charge £65/hour and claimed that it would take around 1-2 hours to fix the synth. However, they said this over the phone so who knows, it might take longer than that.
What do you guys think?
(Btw, I'm living in London if anyone knows any places offering cheap repairs.)
