EMS Synthi A MK2 1974


via this auction

"in working condition. power cable and extra pins included (including three green attenuated pins ordered new from ems).

bought here on reverb for full disclosure — link to original listing

*IMPORTANT*
-the envelope lamp stopped working. this has had ZERO effect on the actual functioning of the envelope—just no fun flashing lights. i'm sure a suitable tech could fix it very easily. has made no difference in practice (actually made me use my ears instead of my eyes ;) )
-there is a minor fracture in one section of the plastic enclosure. again, ZERO effect on the instrument itself. included several close-up photos for full disclosure. not noticeable at all until you purposefully "pop" the fractured section out.
-the joystick stops functioning when the range knobs are turned past around 9"
