"Up for sale is a vintage EML ElectroComp 500 synthesizer / keyboard with a hard case. It is in fair cosmetic condition; lots of scratches and flaws consistent with heavy, not-always-careful use. The photos tell the story; there's nothing worse than what's pictured here. I've just been through it, and functionally I'd say it's in fair-to-good condition. Key contacts are all good with the exception of the D above middle C, which will need to be cleaned (it often fires on release as well as initial contact). It needs to be scaled. The sliders are all pretty quiet and move freely, though they feel a little inconsistent and gritty. Filter sweeps are reasonably linear and clean, and sample & hold functionality is excellent. As is, it makes the Devo 'Whip It' noise with grace and ease, and you can play Weezer solos until the end of time. With a bit of work it could be very, very nice; it's definitely all there."
