The wait for one of this year's most hotly anticipated synthesizers is finally over, as Dave Smith Instruments has started shipping the first units of the new OB-6.

This collaboration between Dave Smith and Tom Oberheim was announced at NAMM 2016, and is 6-voice poly with that distinctive SEM tone.

The OB-6 is already on its way to DSI approved dealers and has a MAP of $2,999.

For those of you who missed it, here's Dave Smith taking us through the key features of the OB-6 synth at this year's NAMM show.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
