"A very tidy EMS Synthi AKS.

Serviced by Jeff B at The Analog Lab
www dot theanaloglab dot com.

There are some minor scuffs and scratches, but as you can see from the photos, it is in overall very good cosmetic condition especially considering its age.

It comes with the three Presto-Patches and original Documentation.
It works great, however, it is a vintage synth from the early 1970s and sometimes gear of this age can have the occasional quirky outburst.
Since it's back from the service though it's been pretty solid!

As for the work in the service, the Power supply was recapped, pots were cleaned/replaced,
Oscillators were modified (matched transistors on Lin to log conversion)
Electrolytic Capacitors on PCB (aprox 30) were replaced
Connectors on PCB.s were cleaned.
Trimmers on PCB's for calibration (aprox 21) were replaced
Reverb circuit was repared..
Full calibration also performed.

Beautiful Specimen which I am sad to let go, but am funding the build of my studio.

$17,500 Or Best Offer.
Sold As Is."
