Q: I'm in the market for a modular system, and I'm trying to figure out which is the best. Serge, Wiard, MOTM, etc all look great. What do you think?
A. Back in the middle 90's you had basically two companies making analog modular synthesizers. Today there's something like ten! They all have great unique things to offer. It's all a matter of personal taste.
Q: Who services Serge systems?
A: Rex Probe at Sound Transform Systems repairs / restores Serges.
Kevin 'Synthfool' Lightner is also highly recommended:
You can contact him at:
PO Box 201

Q: What are the prices for the shop panels?
A: We don't have that information right now. All we can tell you is, add up the cost of the individual modules, add a ROX, a power supply, some patch cords, there you have it.
Q: I live overseas and don't want to call Rex Probe. What is his email address?
A: Rex does not have an email at this time.
Q: Where can I get a used Serge system?
A. Keep up with the Serge Mailing list. Used systems are usually posted there first. Other than that, nobody ever sells theirs! They like them too much!
Q: What's "EGRES" mean?
A. It's SERGE spelled backwards.
Q: Are Serges available as kits?
A. Serges used to be available as kits many years ago, but this was discontinued.
Q: What is the color coding on the banana jacks?
A. Red is used for trigger signals, Blue for DC coupled signals, Black for AC coupled signals, and purple is used for sync.
