 Model Wave 16-voice as seen to service
 Description Waldorf Wave 16 Voice It has developed a fault where won't boot correctly from disk and displays 'no system disk' so I suspect a chip or something has failed and needs replacement inside, the drive is making a noise and spinning. It will come with operating system disk 1.7 which is the last version Waldorf released (however newer version is available to buy online) Flight cased and the photos show the condition the main panels are in near excellent condition, its just the mod wheel section which is tatty (it came like this when I bought it some 5/6 years ago it has the dreaded Waldorf paint, its strange as the rest of the unit is very nice paint condition, maybe it was swapped out over the years) You will see I have removed the back panel and top panel to take photos to show everything internally. I cannot see any signs indicating to the fault but I suspect it will be some sort of chip that has failed. The power button cap broke a few years back but I will include it as you can fix or replace easily, the power switch still works perfectly. The hydraulic hinges are very strong and working, the backlight isn't working so that will need looking at and replacing (common issue on waves) but was never an issue for me as I didn't need to have it backlit (display screen still 100% working). VEMIA can palletise the Wave and flightcase (40GBP) or of course collection or hand delivery in much of England (part wales) would be ideal.
