The December collection certainly has some much sought-after sound makers, including an Oxford Synthesizer Company OSCar (“Overall nice condition, all working properly as should and sounds amazing”), which is going for $6,491/£4,898, and a “100% accurate recreation” of the classic EMS VCS3 made by Switchtrix Electronics UK. This one is yours for a cool $6,930/£4,999.

If you’ve got serious money to burn, there’s also a fully restored 1981 Roland Jupiter-8 for sale in Canada. This one will set you back a whopping $31,887/£24,142, though like many on the site, the seller is “open to offers”.

If you want a more quirky ‘80s instrument, meanwhile, how about a vintage Soviet Elektronika EM-04 analogue organ, which can be had right now for $540/£425?
